David Tennant and Michael Sheen return as the unlikely angel and demon duo in season 2 of the hit show.

Crowley and Aziraphale won’t return to Prime Video until July 28, but to tide fans over, the people behind Good Omens released the title sequence for the new season — and it's full of hints about what the second season has in store!

The brand new title sequence for the hit show’s second season should whet the appetites of fans who have been dying to see the return of their favorite angel and demon since the first season ended in 2019.

The intro was shared on YouTube and Twitter with the caption “A special gift, because you all have been oh so patient with us.”

Much like the opening for the first season, this new one features the same art style and shows David Tennent’s Crowley and Michael Sheen’s Aziraphale traversing an apocalypse-ravaged Earth and then leading a long line of people into the underworld.

The sequence confirms that season two will follow the unlikely angel/demon duo as they deal with the aftermath of the season one finale. The premier episode is called “Chapter 1: The Arrival” and will pick up after Crowley and Aziraphale have prevented the apocalypse. The pair are banished to live amongst mortals, but just as they are beginning to enjoy themselves an unknown messenger brings them a shocking mystery.

Good Omens is based on a novel written by long-time friends and successful fantasy novelists Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Gaiman helped to pen season two alongside John Finnemore and is returning once again as executive producer and showrunner.

We’ll be getting six more episodes and this time the series is going beyond the source material. Pratchett and Gaiman never wrote a sequel to their beloved 1990 novel, but the pair did have plans for what would happen next.

In a press release Gaiman said, “Terry’s not here any longer, but when he was, we had talked about what we wanted to do with Good Omens, and where the story went next. And now, thanks to BBC Studios and Amazon, I get to take it there.”

Gaiman also teased that season two will give fans answers to burning questions they had when the first season ended. “There are so many questions people have asked about what happens next (and also what happened before) to our favorite Angel and Demon,” the author said. “Here are the answers you’ve been hoping for. We are back in Soho, and all through time and space, solving a mystery, which starts with an angel wandering through Soho, with no memory.”

Douglas MacKinnon is returning to direct all six episodes of the season. Along with Tennant and Sheen, the new season will see the return of other familiar faces and some new ones as well. John Hamm, Derek Jacobi, Mark Gatiss, Niamh Walsh, Gloria Obinayo, Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton, and Doon Mackichan.

New additions to the show include Miranda Richardson as Shacks, who takes over Crowley's role in Hell;Ty Tennant (David Tennant’s son who you likely know from House of the Dragon), as a character named Ennon; Pete Davison (David Tennant's father-in-law), as Alistair; and Shelley Conn as Beelzebub.

Eagle-eyed fans will likely notice easter eggs hidden throughout the new opening sequence — so give it a watch or two while you wait for the new season to drop on Prime Video on July 28!
