The Good Omens series, based on the novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, is fast approaching. Gaiman, himself, confirmed that he will be seen and/or heard in two episodes of the TV adaptation when he took to Twitter on Valentine’s Day. Who doesn’t love that?
Good Omens stars David Tennant (Crowley) and Michael Sheen (Aziraphale) as unlikely partners trying to prevent the end of the world. Jon Hamm will play the archangel Gabriel and Benedict Cumberbatch will appear as Satan. The role of God has been given to the incredible Frances McDormand.
Gaiman has described the series as ““six hours of television that for good or for evil isn’t anything like you’ve ever seen before,” according to syfy.com. And, if it’s anywhere near as good as the book, we are all in for an otherworldly treat.

Who will Gaiman play? That’s yet to be seen. But, If we need to be that sharpeyed and sharpeared… Gaiman may be occupying a small cameo in the show. That’s just fine with us. His presence is present enough.
All six episodes of Good Omens will start streaming on Amazon Prime, May 31st.
