Good Omens Season 1 has only just been released on Amazon Prime Video. Eyes are already on a potential second season of the series. Will it happen?
Good Omens may have only just debuted on Amazon Prime Video, but that hasn’t stopped people from looking at a potential future. Fans are eager to see David Tennant and Michael Sheen back as Crowley and Aziraphale for a second season, but is it going to happen?
Don’t get your hopes up. The series has been billed as a miniseries, which means it was always designed just to be the one season. Of course, we’ve seen limited series return for second seasons and more in the past. We just have to look at Big Little Lies, which was originally intended to be only one season.

However, it doesn’t sound like there are plans to change tactic on this apocalypse-set series. Neil Gaiman made it pretty clear in March that it was only going to be one season and there weren’t plans for more of the story. Never say never, though, just in case!
One season makes a lot of sense. Good Omens is based on the novel by Gaiman and Sir Terry Pratchett. As Gaiman says, it has a beginning, middle, and end. There’s no need to drag something out just to create more of a story and the show has stuck relatively faithful to the book – we can thank Gaiman having control over the series for that.
While there’s plenty to love about the show, some series just work best as a limited series. We’ve seen how shows can go off track or just not be as good as earlier seasons because of no source material to work with. Look at the likes of 13 Reasons Why and Game of Thrones that just weren’t as good once they had no book material to work with.
The last thing we’d want is for something like that to happen with Good Omens. In a way, I hope Gaiman keeps it as a limited series unless he has excellent plans for more of a story. However, without Sir Terry Pratchett, it’s just not going to be the same and it deserves to remain as one season.
