They saved the world from being destroyed by an apocalyptic holy war between heaven and hell, and now Aziraphale and Crowley are destined for another adventure. Here is everything that we know so far.
When is Good Omens season 2 coming out?
Prime Video announced on Wednesday, 11 May that the six-episode second season of the critically acclaimed show would return to the streamer on Friday, 28 July.
The announcement was made at the end of a collaboration Gaiman did with The Hillywood Show, titled Good Omens Parody.
Good Omens season 2 will have six episodes in total and episodes are expected to come out weekly on Prime Video, as is the norm for the streamer.
Good Omens season 2 plot
Prime Video confirmed that the second season will go beyond Pratchett and Gaiman’s original book, and it will focus on the “uncanny friendship” between Aziraphale and Crowley.

The pair are said to be getting ready to take things easy after stopping the Apocalypse in season one, and enjoying life in Soho, London, when an unexpected messenger disturbs their peace with a surprising mystery.
What the mystery will be is a closely-guarded secret, and fans of the book will not be able to guess at it either because the first season of the show already adapted the story as Pratchett and Gaiman had written it.
Good Omens season 2 cast
It would be unimaginable for Good Omens to be without its lead stars Michael Sheen and David Tennant, who play Aziraphael and Crowley respectively, and the good news is both will be returning for the second season.
