Amazon released its longest look yet at “Good Omens,” its adaption of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s acclaimed fantasy novel.
All six episodes will debut on May 31. “Good Omens” stars Michael Sheen and David Tennant as an angel and demon, respectfully, who have an unlikely friendship over centuries of living comfortably on Earth. Having become overly fond of life on Earth, they’re forced to form an unlikely alliance to stop Armageddon. But they have lost the Antichrist, an 11-year-old boy unaware he’s meant to bring upon the end of days, forcing them to embark on an adventure to find him and save the world before it’s too late.
Based on the beloved book, “Good Omens” also includes Jon Hamm as the Archangel Gabriel, Frances McDormand as the Voice of God and Benedict Cumberbatch as Satan. On Tuesday, Gaiman announced that Brian Cox will be the Voice of Death.
Gaiman serves as showrunner with Douglas MacKinnon directing all six episodes. Produced by BBC Studios, Amazon Studios, Blank Corporation and Narrativia. Gaiman, MacKinnon, Chris Sussman, Simon Winstone and Rob Wilkins serve as Executive Producers.
