Meet Aziraphale, an angel (played by Michael Sheen) and Crowley, a demon (played by David Tennant). Together, the two star in GOOD OMENS, the new series based on the book by Neil Gaiman and the late Terry Pratchett. Over the last 6,000, this unlikely duo have become friends. But will that last when the end times are upon them?
The official synopsis for the new Amazon Prime series says “According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world’s only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner. So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth’s mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist …”
GOOD OMENS will premiere in 2019.
