Michael Sheen and David Tennant in a scene from Amazon Prime's 'Good Omens." They are in a bookshop. Sheen is sitting in an armchair holding a cup of tea while Tennant sits on the arm of the chair. Both are white men. Sheen has white, shaggy hair and is wearing a light-colored three-piece suit with a plaid bow tie. Tennant is wearing all black, including sunglasses, and has short red hair in a pompadour.

Imagine All the Angst if the ‘Good Omens’ Rumors Are True

News broke that the potential of a third season of Good Omens is looking likely. While nothing is set in stone, the rumors of the show’s continuation did instantly get the wheels turning in my head for what that could mean for our beloved Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and Crowley (David Tennant).

**Spoilers ahead for season 2 of Good Omens**

At the end of Good Omens season 2, we watched as Aziraphale thought he had everything figured out. He could go back to Heaven with Crowley at his side but he woefully misunderstood what Crowley wanted out of their relationship. He wanted Aziraphale, not Heaven. Quickly, Crowley realized that Aziraphale still had some half-baked idea that Heaven could be fixed and that he could be the one to do it. The end of the season left us with the two separated and upset by where their futures were taking them.

Watching the two leave heartbroken and separated—Aziraphale with the hope of fixing Heaven still in his eyes despite Crowley not being with him—was devastating. What hurt even more was not knowing whether we’d be back with them for a season 3. So knowing that we now have the chance to see that anger and hurt get played out in season 3? That’s something worth getting excited about.

Think about how excited we were for Our Flag Means Death season 2 and the tension between Ed (Taika Waititi) and Stede (Rhys Darby). While they figured out their issues rather quickly, mainly because the show is a comedy and they were less angry about their situation, I don’t think someone like Crowley would let a situation like this go. We had one brief moment of happiness between Crowley and Aziraphale and now we might end up in a world of pain. Personally? I can’t wait!

The potential pain of season 3 is going to be delicious

When it comes to angst, many of us turn to fanfiction to get our fill of the feeling. Not that television shows and movies don’t do it well, but I think there is a need for them to hurry it along in live-action formats so that we can get on with the plot of whatever story is being told. What is exciting about a show like Good Omens is that if anyone understands how fans interact with characters, it is Neil Gaiman. If anyone understands our obsession with angst, it’s him. Thinking of how these two would interact in a season where they’re not on the best of terms, their cards have been laid on the table, and they’re at odds with each other is exciting.

It’s new territory. Aziraphale has, as far as we’ve seen, always had Crowley, even if Crowley pretended differently. This is the first time he really doesn’t have his back. That alone is going to make for a great season between them before we even get to unpacking that kiss. Azriaphale went to Heaven without really taking their kiss into consideration and now the fallout from it will have to be addressed.

It may still just be at the rumor phase but the prospect of a season 3 is an exciting one. I can’t wait to see what the team has in store if (and when) it is announced.
