After four long, arduous years, Good Omens Season 2 arrived on a fluffy cloud, dressed in all black and spouting witticisms. It’s such a balm for the soul. Beneath all the delightfully cheeky jokes and comfort-food whimsy, there’s the aching, tender love that Aziraphale and Crowley share. Crowley finally confesses his feelings for Aziraphale in a uniquely Crowley way. They even share their first kiss. However, Aziraphale has been promoted to a lofty new gig in Heaven and needs time for self-reflection. He’ll figure out how much he loves Crowley eventually.
Anyway, all is quiet on the Season 3 greenlight front. I can’t imagine Amazon not renewing the show because of its popularity. Neil Gaiman has stated that Season 3 will be based on his and the late Terry Pratchett‘s ideas for the unreleased sequel to the 1990 novel. (Gaiman also reassured fans that he’ll write the novelization of Season 3 if Amazon doesn’t pick it up.) So, that makes Season 2 the setup between seasons, so to speak, with the Season 2 finale cliffhanger laying the foundation for the real sequel story.
Because I question everything, here are my eight ineffable questions for Good Omens Season 3.
Will Crowley Spend Season 3 Closed Off Emotionally Because of Aziraphale’s Reaction?
Crowley (David Tennant) peels back so many emotional layers in Season 2. He rips his beating heart out of his chest (metaphorically) and hands it to Aziraphale (Michael Sheen), who rejects it. Of course, we know Aziraphale loves Crowley, too; he’s just afraid. Fear is the foundation of countless things.
Considering that the final scene leading into the end credits shows Crowley driving angrily, something tells me he’ll retreat to the safety of his shell. Emotionally, that is. We might see him more closed off in Season 3, at least until our lovebirds inevitably reunite by the season’s conclusion. Get ready for all the emotional drama.
How Will Muriel Fare Running Aziraphale’s Bookshop?
Oh, my sweet baby Muriel (Quelin Sepulveda). She’s a treasure and a half and a fantastic addition to the overall dynamic in Season 2. Metatron (Derek Jacobi) assigns Muriel to oversee Aziraphale’s bookshop, while the latter is the new Gabriel in Heaven. She displays a burgeoning ardor for books in the Season 2 finale.
I think we’ll get fun comedic moments as she adjusts to human culture on Earth. It will be a learning curve for her while acclimating to a new environment. She’ll have to become a pro at operating a business. She’ll have to interact with people. I expect her arc to provide levity to balance the more emotional, meaty beats.
Will We See the Face of God?
Listen, we’ve all heard Frances McDormand for the past two seasons. This is such an insignificant question compared to the others on this list. However, I can’t help but wonder if we’ll see God’s face. I’d love it if we see her in the Season 3 finale. Save that big reveal for later. Or not. Perhaps God should be an enigma.
Will Nina and Maggie Finally Get Together?
I love that Nina (Nina Sosanya) recognizes the need for her to step back from the dating pool because she doesn’t want Maggie (Maggie Service) to be a rebound. It shows deep maturity and understanding. That said, I hope they get together in Season 3. They’re too stinkin’ cute, with great chemistry, to boot. I hope we get a sweeping, romantic first kiss like what Crowley was trying to orchestrate in Season 2. Give us that kissing-in-the-pouring-rain moment!
Will We See Gabriel and Beelzebub Again?
Remember when Gabriel (Jon Hamm) and Beelzebub (Shelley Conn) were the surprise couple of Season 2? They were a lovely plot twist, at that. Of course, Aziraphale took Gabriel’s position in Heaven while Shax (Miranda Richardson) replaced Beelzebub in Hell, but that doesn’t mean we can’t see them again in Season 3.
Perhaps they’ll pop in for a spell to help prevent the Second Coming. Maybe we’ll see them vacationing somewhere in the cosmos. Regardless, these characters bring a vibrant energy to the table, and I’d love for them to return.
Could We Meet New Angels and Demons?
We haven’t met Raphael and Joel from the angel camp or Abaddon and Molech from the demon side of things. While those are biblical names, I could picture Gaiman conjuring original characters to fill out the Heaven and Hell casts. I’m not saying they need to have a prominent place in the narrative, but I’m always fascinated with world-building in genre, and Gaiman (and the late Pratchett) has such a vivid imagination.
Will Aziraphale Reach Out to Crowley to Help Him Prevent the Second Coming?
Metatron and Heaven will make things difficult for our Aziraphale. He will realize his new post isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I can see him butting heads with Metatron, Michael (Doon Mackichan), Uriel (Gloria Obianyo), Saraqael (Liz Carr), etc., as he tries to halt the Second Coming in its tracks. Eventually, Aziraphale will reach out in desperation to Crowley for assistance. It wouldn’t be the first time they prevented an apocalypse together. Why not do it again?
However, as I theorized above, Crowley might be emotionally closed off for part of Season 3. He might even temporarily indulge his demon side. But I know this story has a happy ending, so Crowley’s potential dabbling in the demonic will be transient at best.
Will Aziraphale and Crowley Find Their Way Back to Each Other by the Season’s End (or Sooner)?
Hell yes. 100 percent. This is the most crucial question on this list. Aziraphale and Crowley are the love story of this millennium (and the several ones before that) and the next. Aziraphale merely needs time to assess his feelings. We’ll inevitably get an even better kiss in the Season 3 finale. Then, they can venture to Alpha Centauri for a much-needed romantic vacation.
Bonus Question: Will the Powers That Be Fulfill My Wish and Get Matt Berry to Join Season 3 for a Toast of London Reunion?
If you’ve read my recaps, you know I’m a massive Toast of London fan. We’ve already had Doon Mackichan (Jane Plough), Jon Hamm and Tim Downie (Mr. Brown). Let’s get Toast himself, Matt Berry! I think he would make for a hysterical angel or demon. Even if it’s a cameo, Berry has such a distinctive presence and voice that would only enhance the already delightful dynamic of this series. Oh, and while they’re at it, they can throw in cameos featuring Shazad Latif (Clem Fandango), Harry Peacock (Ray Purchase) and Robert Bathurst (Ed Howzer-Black). Make it a full-fledged reunion.
