Good Omens, a television show based on the book Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, is coming to Amazon Prime’s streaming service. But fans of the book are wondering when the release date is for this much-anticipated six-part series.
Neil Gaiman, the co-author of the book and the creator behind the television show tweeted a trailer from the official Twitter account for Good Omens. While the trailer didn’t share a release date, it did contain some clues as to when it will be.
The trailer simply mentioned Doomsday, and “ending soon” as a clever way of saying “coming soon.” A previous trailer released in October 2018 simply said 2019.
It didn’t take long for people to start guessing some of the clues in the trailer. While “soon”, “this spring” and “2019” didn’t give it all away, others thought that the date could be Brexit, March 29th, Easter, or May 1, which happens to be the original release date for the book.
All good guesses.
The video is part of a tweet that doesn’t show up when embedded, so you can watch the trailer here and see if you can spot the clues yourself.
The show wrapped filming in March 2018, which is almost a year ago. Gaiman posted on New Year’s Day that there was still some post-production work for effects and voice over work to be completed.
The television series stars Michael Sheen as the angel Aziraphale and David Tennant as the demon Crowley. The show will also star Jon Hamm, Frances McDormand, Michael McKean, and Nick Offerman.
Neil Gaiman has revealed that the six-part series will drop at once, meaning fans of the book can binge the show in one sitting. The show will premiere on Amazon’s streaming service, followed by the BBC a few months later.
Good Omens is set to be released in the spring of 2019.
