The series got renewed for a second season with six episodes on June 29, 2021. It was previously claimed that production would begin soon. However, it has now been officially confirmed. Neil Gaiman developed and wrote the fantasy comedy series Good Omens, which is inspired on his and Terry Pratchett’s 1990 novel of the same name.
A six-episode co-production between Amazon Studios and BBC Studios, the series was directed by Douglas Mackinnon, with Gaiman also serving as showrunner.
Neil Gaiman, author and co-showrunner, recently revealed that filming on the second season of Good Omens has begun. And also disclosed a glimpse from the Scottish location.
Michael Sheen and David Tennant will reprise their roles as Aziraphale and Crowley, respectively, in Gaiman’s return to write and co-showrunner. Good Omens, like the novel, contains multiple Christian concepts and figures, and pursues a large ensemble cast as Aziraphale and Crowley, respectively, an angel and a demon whose 6000-year-old side-transcending bond becomes a crucial feature in the dispute.
Despite the fact that the show’s first season was intended to be a limited series, it was renewed for a second season in June 2021, with Sheen and Tennant, as well as the majority of the cast, returning.

In the tweet, Gaiman also stated, ‘I do not know who painted this quote from Good Omens Season 1 on the studio exit door. I do not want to know. I just love that as I left today after our first day of shooting this was waiting, to welcome us back to the outside world.’
