Director Douglas Mackinnon took to Twitter to confirm that production on the upcoming next installment of Neil Gaiman’s fantasy comedy Good Omens has officially been completed after four months of filming in Scotland. Season 2 will feature the return of Michael Sheen and David Tennant as they reprise the unlikely duo of Aziraphale and Crowley, who were last seen by viewers successfully evading death by switching bodies.

“Good Omens Season 2 will explore storylines that go beyond the original source material to illuminate the uncanny friendship between Aziraphale and Crowley,” reads the synopsis. “Having been on Earth since The Beginning, and with the Apocalypse thwarted, Aziraphale and Crowley are getting back to easy living amongst mortals in London’s Soho when an unexpected messenger presents a surprising mystery.”
Based on Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s 1990 novel, the series stars Michael Sheen as the fussy angel and rare book dealer Aziraphale and David Tennant as the fast-living demon Crowley.
Joining them are returning cast members Jon Hamm, Doon Mackichan, Gloria Obianyo, Derek Jacobi, Liz Carr, Quelin Sepulveda, Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton, Reece Shearsmith, Niamh Walsh, Shelley Conn, Paul Adeyefa, Michael McKean, Miranda Richardson, Maggie Service, Reece Shearsmith, and Nina Sosanya, with some of them set to portray new characters.
