As if it wasn’t already a delightful surprise that Amazon’s adaptation of Good Omens will continue, it turns out that in season two, we’ll get to spend a little extra time in the world of Crowley and Aziraphale. In an update on his blog this morning, Neil Gaiman announced that the currently-filming season will have three “minisodes,” which he describes as “stories that begin and end within a larger episode, ones that dive into history.”
There will be three minisodes: one written by novelist Cat Clarke; one by Good Omens 2 co-writer John Finnemore; and one by the collaborative writing team of Jeremy Dyson and Andy Nyman.
It’s not entirely clear how or where we’ll be able to watch the minisodes—but since this is a Prime Video series, it might be safe to assume that they’ll pop up as part of the streamer’s “X-Ray” content, like the Expanse shorts running alongside this season.
Finnemore’s story is set in biblical times, and Clarke’s in Victorian times. The short by Dyson and Nyman is set in London during the blitz.
The second season of Good Omens was announced last summer; of course, the perfectly cast David Tennant and Michael Sheen will return to play the demon Crowley and the angel Aziraphale. Gaiman and director Douglas Mackinnon are once again co-showrunners, and many cast members from season one will also return—though some will play different roles. (But never fear: Jon Hamm will still be the Archangel Gabriel.)
There’s no word yet on when the six episodes of Good Omens 2 will premiere—it’s still in production—but the first season is always there for you, should you need a demonic (or angelic) fix.
