Good Omens: Season 2 (UK-US)

Going beyond the Season 1 story, which was based on the well-loved and internationally best-selling novel Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, the new season of this hit fantasy series explores storylines that go beyond the original source material to illuminate the ineffable friendship between Aziraphale (Michael Sheen, Masters of Sex, Prodigal Son), a fussy angel and rare-book dealer, and the fast-living demon Crowley (David Tennant, Doctor Who, Broadchurch).

Having been on Earth since The Beginning, and with the Apocalypse thwarted, the duo are getting back to easy living amongst mortals in London’s Soho. That is, until the archangel Gabriel (Jon Hamm, Mad Men) turns up unexpectedly at the door of Aziraphale’s bookshop with no memory of who he is or how he got there. 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 — a mystery that takes us from before The Beginning, to biblical times, grave robbing in Victorian Edinburgh, the Blitz of 1940s England, all the way through to the modern day. 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.

Also reprising their roles for Season 2 are Doon Mackichan (Two Doors Down) as archangel Michael and Gloria Obianyo (Outlander) as archangel Uriel.

But when she learns on her first day that the murder is a “culturally-specific homicide,” her excitement about the promotion turns to disappointment, as Rachita suspects she is a token appointment, chosen for her ethnicity rather than her ability.

Regardless, the case is a challenging one and Rachita sticks with it, determined to find the killer and to call out the obvious biases her colleagues are bringing to the investigation, which is far from easy. The case isn’t a run-of-the-mill murder inquiry, and she must delve deep into the dangerous world of organized crime in order to solve it. Rachita is more than up for the task, but what she didn’t count on is what the case stirs up inside her: the realization that she’s been burying a personal identity crisis her whole life.

D.I. Ray has its linear debut on Sunday, July 9, at 10 PM ET, on PBS. (Check your local listings)
