Amazon Prime Video and BBC Studios have premiered the official full trailer for “Good Omens,” their six-part television adaptation of the best-selling 1990 novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.
The story follows the fussy angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen), and the charming demon Crowley (David Tennant) who have formed an unlikely friendship spanning six millennia and have grown fond of life on earth.
However with Armageddon just days away, the armies of Heaven and Hell are amassing and The Four Horsemen are ready to ride. The pair must join forces to find the missing Anti-Christ and to stop the war that will end everything.
Gaiman is set to write and act as showrunner for the series, having received a posthumous blessing from Pratchett to bring the story to life after Pratchett’s death in 2015. Shot in the UK and South Africa, the series also stars Jon Hamm, Benedict Cumberbatch, Frances McDormand, Nick Offerman, Jack Whitehall, Michael McKean, Miranda Richardson, Adria Arjona, Nina Sosanya, Ned Dennehy, and Ariyon Bakare. In addition, Brian Cox has just joined the cast as the voice of Death.
“Good Omens” premieres on Amazon Prime Video on May 31st.
