  • Good Omens will return to Amazon Prime Video in 2024 for a third series, which will wrap up the story
  • "We will deal once more with the end of the world. The plans for Armageddon are going wrong. Only Crowley and Aziraphale working together can hope to put it right. And they aren't talking"

Amazon Prime Video has confirmed that Good Omens will return for a third series, but it will be the final episodes for the comedy drama starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen.

Amazon says: "The forthcoming season will bring to life a serendipitous conversation from almost 35 years ago, between Neil Gaiman and the late Sir Terry Pratchett, where they mapped out 'what happens next' to the wonderful characters in the world of their internationally best-selling novel."

The episodes will begin filming soon in Scotland and are expected to premiere next year on Amazon.

Neil Gaiman says: "I'm so happy finally to be able to finish the story Terry and I plotted in 1989 and in 2006. Terry was determined that if we made Good Omens for television, we could take the story all the way to the end. Season 1 was all about averting Armageddon, dangerous prophecies, and the End of the World. Season 2 was sweet and gentle, although it may have ended less joyfully than a certain Angel and Demon might have hoped. Now in Season 3, we will deal once more with the end of the world. The plans for Armageddon are going wrong. Only Crowley and Aziraphale working together can hope to put it right. And they aren't talking."

Executive producer Rob Wilkins adds: "We're delighted to see Crowley and Aziraphale returning after breaking our hearts in Season 2. Seeing award-winning duo David [Tennant] and Michael [Sheen] reunited will be such a joy. We only wish Terry was here to enjoy the ride with us."

Josh Cole, from BBC Studios Comedy Productions which is making the episodes for Amazon, comments: "It is a rare joy to return to this uniquely wonderful show. The world Neil Gaiman and Sir Terry Pratchett created has thrilled millions around the world and we're delighted to be bringing those fans a gripping conclusion to a story that begun 35 years - and several millennia - ago."

Vernon Sanders from Amazon concludes: "Good Omens has checked every box for a clever, witty, and funny comedy that not only made it a success on Prime Video, but also made 'goodness' watchable and fun thanks to Neil and Terry's immense creativity. The final season is sure to be packed with the same dynamic energy that our global customers have come to enjoy."
