Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch was co-written as a collaboration between genre greats Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett back in 1990. It’s become a fan favorite and cult classic among fans of horror/fantasy fiction.
Terry Gilliam was planning to adapt the novel into a film back in 2002, but obviously that never came to fruition. At the request of Terry Pratchett – shortly before his death – Neil Gaiman began to write a 6-episode TV adaptation in the hopes that it would someday find a home.
That home was Amazon Prime. Produced by BBC, the series is set for release in 2019.
Good Omens stars Michael Sheen and David Tennant, with a supporting cast that includes Jon Hamm, Jack Whitehall, Miranda Richardson, and Nick Offerman. Frances McDormand serves as the show’s narrator (and provides the voice of God).
From the screenplay written by Gaiman, the series tells the tale of an angel, a demon, an 11-year-old Antichrist, a doom-saying witch, and the bungling of Armageddon.
A new trailer has just been released at New York Comic Con, and it looks pretty delightful.
