Many eons ago, fantasy novelists Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett joined forces to create the deliciously original book Good Omens. The novel told the story of an angel and a demon who join forces to put a stop to the apocalypse. While the subject matter sounds heavy, it’s very light in how it’s delivered and very much feels like a sitcom in how the two main characters interact.
Given the sensitive subject matter of religion and all that, I didn’t think something like this would ever make it to the small or big screen. However, the world has changed in the past 10 years, and now it seems like every story under the sun is fit for the TV medium, and I’m totally okay with that. This miniseries is especially special because Gaiman himself is serving as showrunner, and man does it look great.
In the new trailer, we see his and Pratchett’s humor completely on display. It’s ridiculous, it’s colorful, and of course, we see David Tennant playing another wonderfully demented character. I’m on board.
Below is the official synopsis for Good Omens:
“The end is nigh. #GoodOmens: Coming to Prime Video in 2019. Based on the best-selling novel by renowned authors Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, this series follows the story of Aziraphale, an angel, and Crowley, a demon, who have formed an unlikely friendship spanning 6,000 years and have grown fond of life on earth. However, the end of time grows near with the approaching Armageddon and they must now join forces to find a way to save the world. “
