Good Omens season 1: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and everything else you need to know about the show

Coming from the dream team of Terry Pratchett (of 'Discworld' fame) and Neil Gaiman ('The Sandman', 'Stardust' and 'American Gods'), 'Good Omens' is easily the most anticipated show of 2019. 

The Amazon Prime show is based on a fantasy novel of the same name written by the two authors and stars David Tennant and Michael Sheen in the lead roles along with a big star cast. Gaiman will serve as the show-runner and will be writing all six episodes of the first season.

Release date

All six hour-long episodes of the series are scheduled to be release on Amazon Prime Video globally on May 31, 2019. 


'Good Omens' is set in pre-apocalyptic 2018 as humanity prepares for an imminent apocalypse. According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter Witch, the world is due to perish in a week's time with Judgement Day almost upon us. To save the world, an angel (played by Michael Sheen) and a demon (played by David Tennant) must join hands.


"Aziraphale, a somewhat fussy angel, and Crowley, a fast-living demon - both of whom have lived amongst Earth’s mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle - are not actually looking forward to the coming war. And… someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist," explains the show's official synopsis.
