Good Omens Cast, Plot & Trailer-
The story begins and it is according to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter Witch. The world is due to end in a week and Judgement Day is almost upon us. The official synopsis explains where the torrents characters are to come in.
“Aziraphale, a somewhat fussy angel, and Crowley, a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth’s mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming war. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.”
Good Omens is published by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman in 1990. It is a comedy about the birth of the son of Satan but thanks to a terrible mix-up, the Antichrist (Adam) grows up in a nice English village with a nice family. As the End Times approach and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are summoned to Earth, what will happen to young Adam and his friends?
We also know that the show will hop back and forth between the past and the present day. Hence the inclusion of Reece Shearsmith as Shakespeare?
Tennant has teased the series as being “unlike anything” he has ever worked in before.
“It’s quite hard tonally to get a grip on what Good Omens is because it’s this very unique world that comes from Terry and Neil’s novel and from the scripts, which Neil has adapted pretty faithfully from that novel,” he told The Herald.
