The six-part television adaptation by BBC Studios of the best-selling novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett is currently in production and will be launched by Amazon Prime Video in 2019, and shown at a later date on BBC Two.

The series will be brought to the screen by the highly acclaimed director/executive producer Douglas Mackinnon, whose credits include Knightfall, Dirk Gently, Doctor Who, Outlander and the standalone Victorian episode of Sherlock: The Abominable Bride, winner of the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Television Movie last year.

It stars Michael Sheen and David Tennant as lead characters Arizaphale and Crowley, Anna Maxwell Martin as ultimate demon Beelzebub alongside Lourdes Faberes, Yusuf Gatewood and Mireille Enos as the horsemen of the apocalypse. Jon Hamm is playing Archangel Gabriel.

Deadline is reporting that Nick Offerman (Parks and Recreation) is joining the cast as the U.S. Ambassador and father of the child Warlock in the six-part series.

“There may not be anyone alive who can deadpan a line quite as well as Nick Offerman. He’s a terrific performer, and has to say a lot of things in Good Omens that are humanly impossible to deliver with a straight face. Fortunately, Nick is not entirely human,” said Gaiman.

Offerman added, “If you had told me when I first read Good Omens in the early 90’s that I would one day visit South Africa to giggle with Neil Gaiman at laptop-screened footage of Dr. Who and David Frost dancing because I was assaying a role in the adaptation of said book, I would likely have offered to purchase some of whatever you must be smoking. But here I am, still giggling at the luck of it.”

Principal photography began in London earlier this year and will continue until the summer in London, Oxfordshire and South Africa for a 2019 launch.
