Good Omens is arguably the most anticipated new show of 2019 already. People have been waiting for this one since the announcement was made, and everyone wants to know as much as possible about this show. Based on a fantasy novel, called Good Omens, the show will come to Amazon Prime in the future, and the lead roles in the show go to David Tennant and Michael Sheen.
The first season of the show is set to have six episodes. I know that you may be thinking that it’s not a lot, but we believe that as long as they’re good, it’s fine.
Neil Gaiman will be the show-runner and will write all six episodes. These episodes are going to hour-long each, and they’re all coming to Amazon Prime not far from now.
For now, the update of the show is set in Spring 2019, and once it does come out, we’ll get six episodes at once. Six months from then, the show will air on BBC 2 weekly.
Tennant has previously spoken to the Herald about the show, and this is what he had to say:
“It’s quite hard tonally to get a grip on what Good Omens is because it’s this unique world that comes from Terry and Neil’s novel and from the scripts, which Neil has adapted pretty faithfully from that novel. I think it’s quite unlike anything I’ve ever been in before and possibly anything many people have seen before.”
