What Will Happen in Good Omens Season 2?

The second season of Good Omens will continue to explore the weird and wonderful friendship between the angel Aziraphale and demon Crowley as they navigate life in London's Soho after they stopped the arrival of the apocalypse in Season 1.

However, as they settle back into their mortal lives, they receive an unexpected visit from a mystery messenger, who presents the duo with a captivating mystery.

The new series will go beyond the original source material, the 1990 novel "Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch" written by the late Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, which followed the journey of Aziraphale and Crowley as they tried to stop the arrival of the Antichrist and prevent Armageddon.
