PremiseEdit

Set in 2018, the series follows the demon Crowley (David Tennant) and the angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen), longtime friends who, being accustomed to life on Earth, seek to prevent the coming of the Antichrist and with it Armageddon, the final battle between Heaven and Hell.[5]

Cast and charactersEdit

MainEdit

  • Michael Sheen as Aziraphale, an angel who has lived on Earth since the dawn of creation. He was tasked with guarding the Garden of Eden with a flaming sword. He loves the finer things and currently owns an antiquarian bookstore in London.
  • David Tennant as Crowley, a demon who has lived on Earth since the dawn of creation. Originally called "Crawly", he is the Serpent who tempted Eve with the apple from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.[6]
  • Daniel Mays as Arthur Young, father of Adam

  • Sam Taylor Buck as Adam Young, the reluctant Antichrist who was accidentally placed in the custody of the Young family
  • Jon Hamm as the Archangel Gabriel, the leader of the forces of Heaven. While Gabriel was only mentioned once in the original novel, his role was meant to be expanded in the never-finished sequel to Good Omens, so Gaiman incorporated parts of the plot of the planned sequel regarding the role of the angels into the TV series's plot.[5] In the novel, the leader of the forces of Heaven was the Metatron.

  • Adria Arjona as Anathema Device, Agnes Nutter's last descendant, an occultist who eventually teams up with Newton Pulsifer to try and stop the end of the world

  • Michael McKean as Witchfinder Sergeant Shadwell, the last officer of the once proud witchfinder army
  • Jack Whitehall as Newton Pulsifer, a struggling computer engineer and descendant of witchfinder Thou-Shall-Not-Commit-Adultery Pulsifer. Whitehall also portrays Thou-Shall-Not-Commit-Adultery Pulsifer, the witchfinder who burned Agnes Nutter at the stake.[6]
  • Mireille Enos as War: one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse that appears in the form of war correspondent Carmine "Red" Zuigiber.

1"In the Beginning"Douglas MackinnonNeil GaimanMay 31, 2019 (2019-05-31)
The Angel Aziraphale and demon Crowley meet at the Garden of Eden for the first time as Adam and Eve are expelled after Crowley tempts them with an apple. Fast forward to eleven years before Armageddon. Crowley is told to deliver the Antichrist to a satanic convent where he'll be given to an American diplomat and his family. However, a mix-up occurs and he ends up with an English middle-class family, the Youngs. Crowley and Aziraphale meet to discuss the coming apocalypse. Aziraphale is reluctant but agrees to work with Crowley. They decide that if each works to influence the boy (named Warlock), he will be neither evil nor good, just normal. Each takes a position with the Dowling family. Crowley is the nanny and Aziraphale, the gardner. They lie to their respective leaders, archangel Gabriel and head demon Beelzebub, about their plan. Eleven years later at Warlock’s 11th birthday party, Crowley and Aziraphale realize they have the wrong boy when the hellhound fails to appear. Meanwhile, the hellhound has found his master, Adam Young, raised as a normal boy in the village of Tadfield. Adam’s desire to have a small, smart, dog he can teach tricks to transforms the hellhound into a small terrier whom Adam names “Dog” unknowingly initiating Armageddon.
2"The Book"Douglas MackinnonNeil GaimanMay 31, 2019 (2019-05-31)
Aziraphale assures his superiors Gabriel and Sandalphon that all is well with the Antichrist. A parcel delivery man is sent to gather the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse; War, in the form of a war correspondent, receives an ancient sword. In 1656, the prophetess Agnes Nutter is burned at the stake by Wichfinder Thou-Shalt-Not-Commit-Adultery Pulsifer; Agnes causes an explosion killing everyone present. Her book, "The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch", is left to her family and passed through the generations. In the present, Agnes’ descendant, American occultist Anathema Device, is charged with learning the prophecies and saving the world. Pulsifer’s descendant, Newton, meets Shadwell, a modern-day witchfinder. Invited to join Shadwell’s crusade, Newton meets Shadwell’s landlady Madame Tracy, a part-time harlot and medium. Visiting the former convent, now a corporate paintball retreat, Aziraphale and Crowley learn all records were destroyed in a fire. Drawn to Tadfield, Anathema meets Adam and his friends. Aziraphale and Crowley collide with Anathema on the road and give her a lift home. She forgets her book in Crowley’s car, which Aziraphale reads, realizing he holds the key to finding the Antichrist.
3"Hard Times"Douglas MackinnonNeil GaimanMay 31, 2019 (2019-05-31)
Aziraphale and Crowley's relationship is revealed through a series of historical events ranging from Noah's Ark and the Crucifixion of Jesus through 1960's Soho, with Crowley and Aziraphale crossing paths in Ancient Rome, Medieval England, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, Revolutionary France, and the London Blitz during World War II, when Nazis were seeking books of prophecies for Adolf Hitler. The two strike up an arrangement to each do some of the other's work when possible, saving time and travel. In the present day, Adam and Dog find Anathema, upset at losing her book, and she discusses environmental issues such as the danger of nuclear power plants. Fascinated, Adam leaves with various paranormal magazines to read. Aziraphale and Crowley separately contract Shadwell to locate the Antichrist. Shadwell’s “army” consists solely of Newt, who is sent to Tadfield. Aziraphale tries to tell Gabriel, Sandalphon, and Uriel about the "hypothetical" lost Antichrist; they brush off his concerns but wonder about his loyalty. The second Horseman, Famine, in the form of Dr. Raven Sable, receives a set of scales. Adam falls asleep after poring over the magazines, and his latent powers cause a nuclear reactor to vanish.
4"Saturday Morning Funtime"Douglas MackinnonNeil GaimanMay 31, 2019 (2019-05-31)
Adam’s dreams bring several magazine articles to life, including the appearance of Atlantis and the Kraken. His increasingly controlling behavior worries his friends. Aziraphale fails to convince Gabriel to stop the War, and his superiors question Aziraphale’s loyalty after seeing proof of his meetings with Crowley. The Angel Michael contacts Hell, causing trouble for Crowley, who tries to talk Aziraphale into leaving Earth together. The last two Horsemen, Pollution and Death, are summoned. Encountering UFOs and other phenomena on the way to Tadfield, Newton crashes his car, and Adam and his friends take him to Anathema. When Warlock’s family arrives in Meggido for the next step toward Armageddon, the demon Hastur realizes Crowley lied about the Antichrist. Confronting Crowley at his apartment, the demon Ligur is disintegrated by holy water and Hastur is trapped in Crowley's answering machine. Aziraphale phones Crowley, admitting he knows where the Antichrist is, and Crowley races to meet him. At his bookshop, Aziraphale talks with God in the form of the Metatron. Mistaken by Shadwell for a demon, Aziraphale is discorporated and summoned to Heaven. Stunned, Shadwell unknowingly knocks over a candle, igniting the bookshop.
5"The Doomsday Option"Douglas MackinnonNeil GaimanMay 31, 2019 (2019-05-31)
Crowley races through London only to find the bookshop in flames, with no sign of Aziraphale. In Heaven, Aziraphale refuses to join the war and, determined to stop Armageddon, leaves without a body. He finds Crowley, who salvaged Agnes’ book in which Aziraphale left information about the Antichrist, and they arrange to meet at Tadfield Air Base. Aziraphale inhabits Madame Tracy's body during a seance, and convinces her and Shadwell to help stop Armageddon. Crowley is stuck on the M25 as a ring of fire surrounds London. Hastur, having escaped from the answering machine, suddenly appears beside him. Crowley races his Bentley through the flames, using his imagination to believe his car is not on fire, while Hastur is discorporated, and returned to Hell. Adam comes fully into his powers, scaring away his friends and Dog. This final rejection returns Adam to his "human self." Finding a particular prophecy, Anathema and Newt arrive at the air base, joining Shadwell, Aziraphale/ Madame Tracy, Adam, and his friends. The Four Horsemen arrive and take over the base's global communications hub. Crowley arrives in his flaming Bentley, as Adam declares: "I'M HERE."
6"The Very Last Day of the Rest of Their Lives"Douglas MackinnonNeil GaimanMay 31, 2019 (2019-05-31)
Adam separates Aziraphale from Madame Tracy, and his friends defeat War, Pollution, and Famine, while Death takes his leave. Beelzebub and Gabriel arrive to ensure Adam starts Armageddon in accordance with the Great Plan, but he refuses. Aziraphale and Crowley suggest to their superiors that what they want may be part of the Great Plan, but perhaps not the Ineffable Plan. Both sides reluctantly stand down. Satan emerges, but is renounced by Adam, who restores the world, including Aziraphale's bookshop, Crowley's Bentley, and the lives recently lost. Found guilty of treason by their respective superiors, Aziraphale is ordered to be destroyed by a hellish flame and Crowley is forced to enter a tub of holy water. To everyone's shock, both survive. Afraid of what they've become, Crowley and Aziraphale are allowed to be left alone on earth. There, Aziraphale and Crowley re-exchange their outer appearances, having swapped to survive their sentences, a plan inspired by Agnes’ final prophecy. Anathema is sent a continued version of the prophecies, but Newton convinces her to let go of her responsibility, and she burns them. Tracy entices Shadwell to retire together outside of London. The series ends with Aziraphale and Crowley enjoying lunch at the Ritz.

DevelopmentEdit

Pratchett and Gaiman had planned to adapt Good Omens as a movie for years, with various directors and writers attached to the project at various times. In 2011, a television series, written by Terry Jones and Gavin Scott, was first reported to be in the works but no further plans were announced.[8] After Pratchett's death, Gaiman refused to ever consider working on the adaptation alone but changed his mind when he received a letter from Pratchett, written to be sent after his death, urging him to finish the project.[9]

On January 19, 2017, it was announced that Amazon Prime Video had given a green-light to a television series adaptation of the novel to be co-produced with the BBC in the United Kingdom. Executive producers were set to include Gaiman, Caroline Skinner, Chris Sussman, Rob Wilkins, and Rod Brown. Gaiman was also set to adapt the novel for the screen and serve as showrunner for the series. Production companies involved with the series were slated to consist of BBC Studios, Narrativia, and The Blank Corporation. Distribution of the series was to be handled by BBC Worldwide.[10]

CastingEdit

On August 14, 2017, it was announced that Michael Sheen and David Tennant had been cast in the lead roles of Aziraphale and Crowley, respectively.[11] On September 14, 2017, Gaiman revealed on Twitter that Nina Sosanya, Ned Dennehy, and Ariyon Bakare had joined the main cast.[12] A day later, Jack Whitehall, Michael McKean, Miranda Richardson, and Adria Arjona were announced as series regulars.[13] A week after that, Sam Taylor Buck, Amma Ris, Ilan Galkoff, Alfie Taylor, Daniel Mays, and Sian Brooke were also cast.[14] In October 2017, it was reported that Jon Hamm, Anna Maxwell Martin, Mireille Enos, Lourdes Faberes, and Yusuf Gatewood had joined the main cast.[15][16] In November 2017, it was reported that Reece Shearsmith and Nicholas Parsons had also been cast.[17][18] On 15 December 2017 it was reported that Derek Jacobi would voice the Metatron.[19]

On 9 February 2018 it was announced that Steve Pemberton and Mark Gatiss had joined the series.[20] On 6 March 2018, it was announced that Nick Offerman had been cast in a series regular role.[21] On 20 July 2018, it was announced during Amazon's San Diego Comic-Con panel that Frances McDormand had been cast as the voice of God as well as the series' narrator.[22] On 13 February 2019, Neil Gaiman announced that Benedict Cumberbatch will voice Satan with the character itself being a CGI creation.[23]

FilmingEdit

Principal photography on the series began in September 2017, with Gaiman tweeting a picture of Tennant and Sheen in costume on set.[24] In October 2017, the production was spotted filming in Surrey.[25] The series also filmed in St James's Park in London and Hambleden[26] in Buckinghamshire, and wrapped in March 2018 in Cape Town, South Africa.[27] Gaiman revealed at the New York Comic Con 2018 panel that they used a Bentley 1934 model, unlike the 1929 model mentioned in the book. This was due to the authors' lack of research on cars at the time of writing the book, and the 1934 model was more the look the authors had in mind.[28] The various creature visual effects, including the hellhound, Satan, and Usher, was handled by Milk VFX.[29]

ReleaseEdit

The six episodes of the series was released on Amazon Prime Video on May 31, 2019,[30] and will later broadcast weekly on BBC Two.[31]

MarketingEdit

On October 6, 2018, the series held a panel at the annual New York Comic Con in New York City. The panel was moderated by Whoopi Goldberg and featured creator Neil Gaiman, director Douglas Mackinnon, and cast members Michael Sheen, David Tennant, Jon Hamm, and Miranda Richardson. During the panel, the first trailer for the series was premiered and subsequently released online.[32][33]

During SXSW 2019, Amazon Prime hosted a Good Omens "Garden of Eden" Party in Austin, Texas during the entire week of the festival. The party was hosted by performers dressed as angels and demons, respectively, with free food, hair & nail services, and a full complimentary bar. David Tennant, Michael Sheen, Jon Hamm, Douglas Mackinnon, and Neil Gaiman made a guest appearance at the Garden of Eden briefly before showing an episode of the series for an early screening at Zach Theatre. A party hosted at the Garden by Entertainment Weekly featured a fire-breather and a spot-on Queen cover band. Good Omens-branded umbrellas and tote bags were handed out at the pop-up experience, and the Garden featured a petting zoo full of local, adoptable puppies called "Hell Hounds".[citation needed]

ReceptionEdit

Good Omens has received generally positive reviews from critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, it has an approval rating of 83% based on 86 reviews with an average score of 7.22 out of 10. The site's critical consensus is, "A smörgåsbord of heavenly imagery and irreverent hilarity, Good Omens works thanks to Michael Sheen and David Tennant's very-nearly-holy (or maybe unholy?) chemistry – though, at only six episodes long, it's a rare adaptation that may have benefited from being a little less faithful to the good book."[34] On Metacritic it has a score of 66% based on reviews from 19 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[35]

Petition for cancellationEdit

An online petition that erroneously requested Netflix cancel Good Omens has reportedly received more than 20,000 signatures from people objecting to the show's content, unaware that the show was actually on Amazon, and also a miniseries with no cancellation necessary. The petition, posted as part of a "Return to Order" campaign by a US Christian organization, criticizes the show's irreverent treatment of topics relating to satanism and the devil, and the use of a female voice for God. The petition has subsequently been removed from the site, corrected and reposted.[36][37]
