Amazon’s “Good Omens” adaptation has found God.

“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” star Frances McDormand will lend her voice to the adaptation of the Neil Gaiman-Terry Pratchett novel as God, the streamer announced at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday.

She joins a cast which includes Michael Sheen, David Tennant, Jon Hamm, Anna Maxwell Martin and Nick Offerman.

Set as the end of the world approaches, the series follows a fussy Angel (Sheen) and a loose-living Demon (Tennant) who are forced to form an unlikely alliance to stop Armageddon as the end of the world approaches. When they lose the Antichrist — an 11-year-old boy unaware he’s meant to bring upon the end of days – they are forced to embark on an adventure to find him and save the world before it’s too late.

Gaiman adapted all six episodes of the limited series and serves as showrunner. Executive producers also include Caroline Skinner, Chris Sussman for BBC Studios, and Rob Wilkins and Rod Brown for Pratchett’s production company Narrativia.

“Good Omens” is slated to debut on Amazon Prime in 2019, with weekly airings on BBC Two to follow.
