Good Omens Season Two First Trailer Teases New Mystery & Gay Romance
'Good Omens' S2 First Trailer Teases New Mystery & Gay Romance
Crowley and Aziraphale team up once again to save the world!
After years of waiting, today fans were treated to the first trailer for the second season of the hit Amazon Prime show Good Omens.
The first season saw David Tennant and Michael Sheen’s characters Crowley and Aziraphale team up to stop an impending apocalypse in this adaptation of the popular novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.
This time around the archangel Gabriel — played by a returning John Hamm — shows up in Aziraphale’s London bookshop with no memory after having disappeared from heaven, forcing our unlikely duo into another whirlwind adventure.
According to the official synopsis, Crowley is less keen to help out the amnesiac archangel than Aziraphale. “While Crowley is leery as to why the archangel has come to the bookshop, Aziraphale is keen to solve the mystery behind Gabriel’s condition. However, hiding the archangel from both Heaven and Hell quickly disrupts their lives in unforeseen ways. To solve this mystery and thwart Heaven and Hell in the process, the duo will need more than a miracle; they’ll need to once again rely on each other.”
The trailer leaves us with no doubt that our favorite odd couple will be back at it again with the signature witty banter and their begrudging, but loving friendship — and plenty of sexual tension. We are especially looking forward to watching Crowley sneak his way into heaven!
The show was originally intended to be a stand-alone miniseries, but prior to Pratchett’s death, he and Gaiman had discussed ideas for a sequel and it’s these ideas that guided the writing of season two.
Gaiman wrote all six episodes of the breakout hit’s original run, but for season two he’s co-showrunning alongside Douglas Mackinnon (who is also directing) and co-writing with John Finnemore.
Hamm isn’t the only returning star, Derek Jacobi, Mark Gatiss, Niamh Walsh, Gloria Obinayo, Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton, and Doon Mackichan are all coming back for season two. But there will also be a ton of new faces, including Miranda Richardson as Shacks (who takes over Crowley's role in Hell), Shelley Conn as Beelzebub, Liz Carr as the angel Saraqael, and Quelin Sepulveda as angel Muriel (who we also see pretending to be a human police officer in the trailer).
All six episodes of season two of Good Omens will hit Amazon Prime on July 28.
