Good Omens Season 3: Michael Sheen and David Tennant say Gaiman’s characters could return for more mischief and mayhem

Actors Michael Sheen and David Tennant say Good Omens Season 3 could happen if fans tune in for the latest season.

It’s been four years since the first season of Good Omens premiered on Prime Video, and now, to celebrate the arrival of Good Omens Season 2, Michael Sheen (Aziraphale) and David Tennant (Crowley) say a third chapter of the fantasy epic could happen. Gaiman has been on the ground floor of the new season. He’s also said the latest episodes act like a bridge between the first book and an idea for an original sequel. This tidbit implies we could get Good Omens Season 3 if all goes well.

Speaking with about the possibility of a third season, Sheen and Tennant hinted at the door being wide open for the story to continue.

“Well, it’s not in our gift,” Tennant said when asked if fans will encounter the forces of good and evil alongside Crowley and Aziraphale again. “Yeah. If it was up to us, that would be one thing, but…” Sheen added. “I mean, hopefully, let’s just hope that enough people watch Season 2 to make it ineffable,” he quipped, using the show’s famous line. “Inevitable,” he jokingly corrected.

Sheen and Tennant also discussed which eras they’d enjoy traveling to in future episodes. Sheen explained that the reason he and Tennant enjoy doing scenes in different periods is because of the opportunity to dress differently. Sheen thinks dressing up helps define Crowley and Aziraphale’s relationship dynamic.

“It might be nice to see ’80s Aziraphale and Crowley,” Tennant explained. “Oh yes,” Sheen agreed. “I’d almost certainly be dressed as some sort of Gordon Gekko [Michael Douglas in Wall Street] figure,” Tennant exclaimed. “And I would be very [the British pop group] Haircut 100,” Sheen mused.

Here’s the set-up for Good Omens season 2: Having been on Earth since The Beginning and with the Apocalypse thwarted, Aziraphale and Crowley return to easy living amongst mortals in London’s Soho when an unexpected messenger presents a surprising mystery.

Neil Gaiman wrote the new episodes of Good Omens with John Finnemore. Douglas Mackinnon, who directed the previous six episodes, also directed the new six. Mackinnon is also an executive producer and co-showrunner with Gaiman. Finnemore is another executive producer, as are Rob Wilkins and BBC Studios Productions’ Head of Comedy Josh Cole. Amazon Studios, BBC Studios Productions, The Blank Corporation, and Narrativia produce the series.
