The End is Nigh: “Good Omens” Drops First Full Trailer and Release Date

Angels and demons, flaming swords, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, the Antichrist, and the end of the world –  what could it possibly mean? The television adaptation of Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s beloved novel Good Omens is nearly here and it looks absolutely fantastic.

The limited series follows the unlikely friendship of angel Aziraphale (played by Michael Sheen) and demon Crowley (played by David Tennant) and their efforts to find the 11-year-old Antichrist before the end of the world occurs. The six-part series will air on Amazon Prime as part of Prime Originals and was produced by writer Neil Gaiman.

The trailer showcases some amazing visuals and a star-studded cast including Jon Hamm. The most important thing, for me as a fan? The humor! Part of what makes the book such an enjoyable romp and read is the very dry and witty humor strewn throughout. It’s that same humor that caused this adaption to stay in literal development hell for years, to the point that even Terry Gilliam had to part ways. The stellar casting choices of Sheen and Tennant paired with Gaiman’s screenplay means we’re in for a real treat.  I also adore when David Tennant gets to play a baddie and I’ve been obsessed with his rock star vibe since the first behind-the-scenes photos dropped. Get those Prime subscriptions updated (if you haven’t already). The limited series premieres May 31, 2019.
