Good Omens, the comedy drama starring Michael Sheen and David Tennant as an angel and demon, is reportedly set to return for a second series.

Available via Amazon Prime in 2019, then shown on BBC Two in early 2020, the show is based on the 1990 novel by Sir Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.

The six-part series - overseen by Gaiman - focused on "somewhat fussy angel" Aziraphale and "fast-living demon" Crowley as they teamed up to save Earth from the apocalypse.

The series proved popular with audiences, and fans voted it Comedy Of The Year in the 2019 Comedy.co.uk Awards.

The Sun quotes a source as saying: "The novel and the show gained a real cult following, so devotees will be thrilled to learn about this sequel.

"Although the first series covered the entire Good Omens book, the creators will continue the plot well beyond the story originally penned by Sir Terry.

"But it's a technique that's well used in TV and has proved immensely popular in the past, so long as the creators manage to continue the spirit of the original."

The newspaper says BBC Studios is likely to begin filming the second series this year, with it set to be shown in 2022.

Since being brought together in Good Omens, Sheen and Tennant have gone on to star together in two series of BBC One sitcom Staged.

The Watch, based on the Discworld novels by Sir Terry Pratchett, and also made by BBC Studios, is set to be broadcast in the UK later this year.
