Good Omens Season 3 Teased by Creator Neil Gaiman

Good Omens Season 3 Teased by Creator Neil Gaiman

Despite Good Omens season 2 not having a release date, creator Neil Gaiman is already teasing that season 3 of the series could happen.

Neil Gaiman suggested that he isn’t finished with Good Omens just yet, hinting at a season 3. Season 1, and the in-development season 2, are based on the 1990’s novel Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch written by Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. The Amazon production debuted as a miniseries in 2019, following Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and Crowley (David Tennant) after they fail to watch over the real Antichrist and consequentially struggle to deal with the impending apocalypse.

Season 1 quickly became a massive hit with fans of the novel and those new to the story alike. While some held out hope, after over two years of no new information, it was ultimately accepted that this compelling series would forever remain only six episodes. Despite its incredible success, even Gaiman, who’s also an executive producer for Good Omens, confessed that he didn’t see the show going any further. It was finally announced that Good Omens season 2 was happening two years later, but there hasn’t been any news on season 3.

With Good Omens season 2 filming finally complete, Gaiman’s Twitter followers have been very interested in what the future might hold for their favorite retired and fallen angels. While season 2 is currently unreleased, it’s only natural to be curious about where the writer sees the show going. It’s not a firm ‘yes,’ but Gaiman does suggest that he’s open to continuing the series, much to the excitement of his fans. Check out the tweet below:

Although there hasn’t been any official confirmation, the writer has been developing ideas for the project for quite some time. Gaiman recently revealed on his Tumblr that he’s been setting the foundations for season 3 throughout the episodes seen in Good Omens season 1. The script for season 3 would tell stories from Gaiman and Pratchett’s unpublished ideas for another Good Omens novel, making season 2 the steppingstones in order to get there.

It might seem like early days to be speculating about a potential season 3 as a release date for Good Omens season 2 is still pending, but it seems like Gaiman is just as invested as the fans. Even as Gaiman has his responsibilities divided with several different projects like Netflix’s The Sandman adaptation, the writer is still thinking up ideas for Good Omens. This might not confirm that Crowley and Aziraphale will return on screen after the upcoming events of Good Omens season 2, but knowing that the creator is already putting things in place for a prospective season 3 is definitely a point in its favor.
