Are you ready?

Look at all those subtle shades of grey! And those stylish shoes! And that, um, turtleneck? Why would a celestial being go for a turtleneck?

Neil Gaiman tweeted this lovely shot himself, saying he was sharing it “for you, for me, for all of us. FOR PEOPLE NOT YET BORN. This is what Jon Hamm looks like as the Angel Gabriel in the upcoming TV series of GOOD OMENS. A thing of beauty, and a joy for ever.” We have to agree, and we’re also pleased to get this timely reminder that even with the American Gods adaptation going through some turmoil, there is still joy to be found in the nexus of Gaiman and television.
Good Omens will cast its benedictions upon us via Amazon (and the BBC in the UK) in 2019.
