It has been more than a year since the fans saw the debut of Good Omens, and now they are getting curious to know whether there will be Good Omens Season 2 or not. But the fact that the inaugural season of the series ended without any cliffhanger is bothering the fans. Plus, there are no updates from the creators as well. So will the fans ever see its sequel? Here’s everything to know.
Good Omens is an American miniseries. It is an adaptation of the 1990 novel of the same title by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. The latter one also served as the showrunner of this miniseries. Amazon Prime Studios and BBC Studios co-produced six episodes series, which made its debut on May 31, 2019, on Amazon Prime. Later, it ran from January 15 to February 19, 2020, on BBC Two in the UK.
Good Omens Season 2: Renewal Status!
The creators of the series and the novel, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, haven’t closed the doors on the sequel yet. Although they neither renewed nor canceled the show for its second season. The makers even planned a sequel for the novel, but they didn’t implement it. It was about the origin of the angels. So if the makers ever renew the show for Good Omens Season 2, the viewers will see this storyline in it.
One of the writers, Neil Gaiman, also revealed the same in his interview. He said, “I don’t feel like it’s done and sifted… You know, Terry and I had framed a complete storyline. The obstacle is that doing the following novel quickly after the first or doing that another storyline immediately after the first, they’re just too comparable, which I think would mean that if we did another season, I would have to do three seasons. I’d have to do extra two seasons instead of just one.”
What To Expect From The Second Season?
The plot of this show revolves around the tale of demons. The story is entirely about the origin of the world. It deals with the work of actual incidents and events. The debut season dealt with hunger, war, and pollution as well. And if the second season will ever happen, it will show the story of the origin of the angels. Neil Gaiman himself said this in an interview.
He said, “Good Omens Season 2 will be about where the angels originated from, which is why it was much easy to add more angels to this. And having come up with that story, we know that if the audience loves this enough and if the time and the intention are there, we could definitely go back and do a lot more.”
Good Omens Season 2: Release Date
All the fans of this series are still waiting for Amazon and BBC to renew it for the second season. And if this happens, then it is likely that the viewers will see a trilogy. If Neil Gaiman and the creators of this agrees to give the series another shot in the upcoming months, the viewers can expect to see Good Omens Season 2 by the end of 2022.
