"We are so thrilled that we were able to get so many fabulous actors to return to the Good Omens family," co-showrunner Neil Gaiman said. "And we are just as thrilled by the people coming to the Good Omens team for the first time. We have an ensemble cast of astonishing talent, and seeing what they're giving us is a daily treat. I can't wait until the rest of the world gets that treat, too."

Good Omens is based on Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's novel of the same name. Season 1 follows the demon Crowley (Tennant) and the angel Aziraphale (Sheen) as they attempt to prevent the coming of the Antichrist.

Season 2 will open with Crowley and Aziraphale living in London's Soho when an unexpected messenger presents a surprising mystery.
