Season 2 of the popular television show Good Omens, which is based on the same-named novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, will premiere on Prime Video sometime in the summer of 2023. We know that Maggie Service, Nina Sosanya, and Miranda Richardson will return to the series in new roles, and Quelin Sepulveda joins the cast as the angel Muriel. The news was announced at the show’s panel at NYCC.
Even though the second season of the series hasn’t been given any further information, we already know that whatever occurs will go beyond the scope of the original novel by Gaiman and Pratchett, which season one covers in its entirety, up through and through the end of the world. Since Pratchett died before the first season could even be produced, it’s unclear how season two will further established by the novel’s original authors. However, given the success of season one, it’s likely that the lighthearted tone and death-defying adventures will hopefully continue in the new episodes as well.
Both Service and Sosanya will portray self-named characters: a coffee shop owner with a horrible love life and a record store proprietor who lives next door to Michael Sheen’s Aziraphale’s bookshop. With Sepulveda portraying Muriel, a so-called “nice angel,” who has spent 6,000 years reading and filing documents in the same office in heaven, Richardson will play Shacks, the demon who replaces Crowley when he is expelled from hell.
Frances McDormand and Benedict Cumberbatch, who played the voices of God and Lucifer, respectively, will not be appearing again, despite the fact that actors David Tennant and Martin Sheen and Jon Hamm as the Archangel Gabriel are returning. Dame Siân Phillips, Tim Downie, Pete Firman, Andi Osho, and Alex Norton have been added as new cast members for the second season, in addition to Derek Jacobi, Niamh Walsh, Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton, and Reece Shearsmith, who are also returning.
