A trio of new names has been added to the cast of “Good Omens,” the Amazon and BBC six-part TV series adaptation of the Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman novel.
Jack Whitehall (“Fresh Meat”) will play wages clerk-turned-witch hunter Pulsifer (aka Newt), Michael McKean (“Better Call Saul”) will star as witch-finder army leader Sgt. Shadwell, and Miranda Richardson (“Churchill”) will play medium and courtesan Madame Tracy.
Also onboard are Adria Arjona (“True Detective”) as occultist Anathema Device, Nina Sosanya (“Marcella”) as Sister Mary Loquacious of the Chattering Order of St. Beryl, Ned Dennehy (“Peaky Blinders”) as Duke of Hell Hastur, and Ariyon Bakare (“New Blood”) as fellow Duke of Hell Ligur.
Michael Sheen and David Tennant have already been named in the lead roles of Aziraphale and Crowley respectively. Douglas Mackinnon (“Sherlock: The Abominable Bride) directs the series which was penned by Gaiman who also serves as showrunner.
The series will premiere on Amazon in 2019 around the world. Amazon will also launch it in the U.K., with the BBC having it for BBC Two at a later date.
