What To Expect From Good Omens Season 2?
In the first season of Good Omens, fans saw Crowly and Aziraphale trying to assume control of Earth as the forces of good and evil. Later on, they both decided to leave the sides they were on. The duo was charged with treason for leaving their sides and are were sentenced to death.
Aziraphale was then commanded to go into a pillar of hellfire, while Crowly had to bathe himself in the holy water. However, this endeavor was a waste, and both of them survived. Later, Crowley and Aziraphale obtained a chunk of paper from the book of Agnes Nutter’s prophecies. With that, they changed their faces and survived intact.
The premiere season finished with the two sharing enjoying a meal together and celebrating. The premise was set in the present. And now, Good Omens Season 2 is likely to explore the origin of the angel and demon. Creator Neil Gaiman also stated about the second season that “It’s probably less good for the universe as it almost certainly means there will be some fresh existential threat to its existence to deal with, but, you know, swings and roundabouts.”
