Based on the beloved book by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, Amazon Original Good Omens is the highly-anticipated six-part fantasy drama series launching exclusively to Amazon Prime Video on May 31st. Starring David Tennant (Doctor Who) and Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex), the show – according to showrunner Neil Gaiman (American Gods) – is “quite possibly even madder than you imagine”.
In Good Omens, the end of the world is coming, which means a fussy Angel (Michael Sheen) and a loose-living Demon (David Tennant) who’ve become overly fond of life on Earth are 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…
Here’s the trailer:
Amazon Prime Video have also released a brand new behind-the-scenes featurette, featuring the cast talking about the making of the series, as well as providing a sneaky glimpse at some of characters and special effects involved in the show, including the M25 turning into a flaming wall around London and the 400-foot-high CGI-animated Satan, voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock).

Directed by Douglas Mackinnon (Sherlock), Good Omens also stars Jon Hamm, Nick Offerman, Jack Whitehall, Miranda Richardson, Adria Arjona, Michael McKean, Mireille Enos, and many others.
