Prime Video announced today that it has ordered the global fan-favorite series Good Omens for an ineffable third and final season.
Well, given how Season 2 ended, folks would be mighty miffed if Good Omens didn’t come back for another season. Thankfully, it is returning for a third and final season.
Season 3 will bring to life a serendipitous conversation from almost 35 years ago between authors Neil Gaiman and the late Sir Terry Pratchett, in which they mapped out “what happens next” to the unholy duo of the fast-living demon Crowley (David Tennant, Doctor Who, Staged, Broadchurch) and the fussy, rare-book-dealing angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen, Staged, Prodigal Son, Masters of Sex) — the wonderful characters in their internationally best-selling novel, Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch — thus concluding the story of the Good Omens Universe.
Said Neil Gaiman:
“I’m so happy finally to be able to finish the story Terry and I plotted in 1989 and in 2006. Terry was determined that if we made Good Omens for television, we could take the story all the way to the end. Season One was all about averting Armageddon, dangerous prophecies, and the End of the World. Season Two was sweet and gentle, although it may have ended less joyfully than a certain Angel and Demon might have hoped. Now in Season Three, we will deal once more with the end of the world. The plans for Armageddon are going wrong. Only Crowley and Aziraphale working together can hope to put it right. And they aren’t talking.”
Season 3 of the comedic fantasy drama will begin filming soon in Scotland and will premiere on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide (date tba).
Neil Gaiman continues as executive producer, writer, and showrunner. Rob Wilkins of Narrativia, representing Terry Pratchett’s estate, as well as Josh Cole, BBC Studios Productions’ head of comedy, will also executive produce. The final season is produced by Amazon MGM Studios, BBC Studios Productions, the Blank Corporation, and Narrativia.
With this announcement, Amazon MGM Studios continues its relationship with Gaiman, who has a first-look deal with the studio, which also includes the forthcoming series Anansi Boys, based on Gaiman’s eponymous novel.
