Amazon announced today that Good Omens has been picked up for a second season. The news comes over a year after the fantasy comedy released its freshman run, which was originally intended to be a six-episode limited series.

Based on Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's 1990 novel of the same name, the series follows a fussy Angel who forms an unlikely alliance with a loose-living Demon. They have both become attached to their life on Earth, and therefore must team up to try and stop the impending Armageddon. To do that, they have to find the missing Antichrist - an 11-year-old boy who has no clue he is meant to bring the end of days upon humanity.

Stars Michael Sheen and David Tennant, who play Angel Aziraphale and Demon Crowley, will reportedly be returning Season 2, which will focus on new stories that go beyond the source material. Filming is slated to begin later this year in Scotland.

Look for Season 2 of Good Omens in 2023.
