It's the end of the world… again! Amazon's Good Omens starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant, as lovable angle-devil duo, is set to be getting a season two!

Season 1 of Good Omes was originally intended as a standalone miniseries, adapted from Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's beloved 1990 novel, so fans had thought they had seen the last of the fussy angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and loose-living demon Crowley (David Tennant), but according to reports, the mini-series, which debuted on Amazon in May 2019, is getting a follow-up.

Amazon announced on Monday (June 28) that the second season of Good Omens is officially on the way and the new six-episode season will begin filming in Scotland later in 2021. Neil Gaiman will also be returning to the show as co-showrunner with Douglas Mackinnon.

"It's 31 years since Good Omens was published, which means it's 32 years since Terry Pratchett and I lay in our respective beds in a Seattle hotel room at a World Fantasy Convention, and plotted the sequel," Neil explained in a statement.

"I got to use bits of the sequel in Good Omens - that's where our angels came from. 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. I have enlisted some wonderful collaborators, and John Finnemore has come on board to carry the torch with me. There are so many questions people have asked about what happened next (and also, what happened before) to our favourite Angel and Demon."
