Today Neil Gaiman released the first image of David Tennant and Michael Sheen as the demon Crowley and the angel Aziraphale on the set of Amazon’s adaptation of Good Omens.
Gaiman, who is serving as showrunner of the miniseries, wrote,
“They are amazing…This is them in the opening scenes, 11 years ago, in St. James’s Park. David and Michael, demon and angel.”
Written by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, Good Omens is a comedic take of the coming of the apocalypse. It centers on the angel Aziraphale and the demon Crowley, who attempt to short-circuit the End Times, and the Antichrist who, because of a mix up at the hospital, is a seemingly normal boy raised by English parents.
Good Omens will be filming for the next six months in London, Oxfordshire and locations in South Africa. The miniseries will premiere in the UK in 2019 on Prime Video before going on to BBC Two at a later date.
