The end is nigh. Again.

Amazon Prime Video has announced that the long-awaited second season of Good Omens, the series based on the beloved '90s prose novel co-written by Neil Gaiman and the late Terry Pratchett, will arrive July 28. The news was broken via Instagram, accompanying a new poster for the season showing Michael Sheen’s Aziraphale and David Tennant’s Crowley sitting together in imperfect harmony, accompanied by a new tagline for the series: “Everyday it’s a-getting closer.”

Is there a Good Omens 2 trailer?

Yes there is! Now fans have been speculating a lot about what on God's earth Good Omens 2 will be about. The trailer, gives us a few hints. In the trailer, it looks like the Archangel Gabriel has pulled a runner, showing up at Aziraphale's bookshop and with no real explanation beyond, "You know what it's like when you don't know anything at all but you're totally certain that everything would be better if you were near just one particular person?" In response to that, Aziraphale smiles in recognition before responding with wide-eyed the-angel-doth-protest-too-much denial.

The trailer also features a new young angel who seems to have been sent to earth to figure out exactly what is going on (and where Michael is). And it does look like somehow, possibly by hiding Michael, that Aziraphale might have inadvertently started a new war. In response, all Crowley has to say (with his signature grin) is "Hell wont like that."

What is the Good Omens 2 plot?

Amazon's official blurb for Good Omens 2 reads: "A naked archangel turns up at the door to renegade angel Aziraphale's bookshop, with no memory of who he is or how he got there, and Aziraphale and retired demon Crowley's lives become extremely complicated. Heaven and Hell are both desperate to find the runaway. As Crowley and Aziraphale attempt to fix a human romance, things become increasingly unsafe for them, in the past and the present."

Good Omens 2 features David Tennant and Michael Sheen returning as Crowley and Aziraphale. In the show's trailer, we've also seen the return of Jon Hamm as Archangel Michael as well as the return of Gloria Obianyo as Archangel Uriel. The trailer also features a new character played by Quelin Sepulveda who seems to have a large role in the season, if the trailer is meant to be believed.

Who is involved with Good Omens 2?

Is there a second Good Omens book?

There isn't! That's why it was a bit of a mystery when Good Omens season 2 was announced. So what exactly is Good Omens 2 being adapted from? The end of the world was seemingly avoided by the end of the previous season of Good Omens — which adapted the original '90s book — although the cast of characters responsible for the near-extinction event were left to their own devices. Talking to Popverse’s Tiffany Babb at Emerald City Comic Con earlier this year, Tennant said that “Neil will tell you that he and Terry had talked about the potential for a sequel,” and that “Terry’s ideas are very much a part” of the new season, although just what those ideas are remain a mystery for now…

Is it Good Omens season 2 or Good Omens 2?

It's worth noting that the logo for the show now reads “Good Omens 2,” as opposed to “Good Omens Season 2.” Should we consider this an official sequel, rather than a continuation of what came before…?

Good Omens 2 — or season 2 of Good Omens, depending on your preference — will debut July 28. Expect a lot more on Popverse about the series as we approach that date.
