A new Deadline report states that, although there hasn’t been an official announcement, Good Omens season 3 is in the works, with Michael Sheen and David Tennant having signed on to reprise their roles as Aziraphale and Crowley. The bad news? Series co-showrunner David Mackinnon won’t be returning, having told fans that he’s no longer involved in the series.

If you feel like you’ve heard this news before, it’s because Prime Video has been inching closer to an official Good Omens renewal for months. Most recently, Neil Gaiman told fans that although there was no official renewal yet, Prime Video had commissioned scripts, which he resumed work on after the WGA strike ended.

Good Omens season 2 paved the way for season 3

As you may recall, Good Omens season 2 ended with one of the most shocking cliffhangers in geek history. Spoilers ahead!

After Gabriel and Beelzebub go off to enjoy their relationship for the rest of eternity, Crowley decides to finally be honest with Aziraphale about his feelings. Meanwhile, Aziraphale gets a surprising offer from the Metatron: to become the new supreme archangel of Heaven. When Aziraphale returns to the bookshop, he floors Crowley by telling him he’s accepted the offer.

Crowley is stunned and betrayed, giving Aziraphale a long-awaited kiss before leaving. Aziraphale, for his part, finds out that one of his first duties will be ushering in the Second Coming.

According to Gaiman, Good Omens season 2 is the second act in what was meant to be a three-act story, acting as a bridge between the original novel and the sequel that Gaiman and Terry Pratchett planned, but never wrote.

Here’s hoping that an official season 3 announcement is coming soon, and we get to find out what happens next in Crowley and Aziraphale’s story.
