CANADA: Good Omens Premieres On BBC Canada & Showcase Tonight

The award winning fantasy comedy series Good Omens, starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen, premieres tonight in Canada on Showcase  and BBC Canada from 9pm ET.

Adapted by Neil Gaiman from the 1990 cult novel he co-wrote with the late Sir Terry Pratchett, Good Omens is a joint production between Amazon Studios, Narrativia, The Blank Corporation and BBC Studios. The six part series, while follows the race to avert the end of the world, premiered on Amazon Prime in May 2019 and aired on BBC Two in the UK late last year. 

Aziraphale is an angel. Crowley is a demon. They’ve both been on Earth for over 6,000 years, and during that time they’ve grown quite fond of it. They like the music, the food, and, sometimes, the people. They’ve even grown to like each other, despite the fact they’re supposed to be locked in the endless battle of good versus evil. But there’s a problem – the Antichrist is coming, and he’s threatening to send them home.

The Divine Plan has been made clear. Shortly after his 11th birthday, with a murderous hell-beast at his side, the Antichrist will call the four horsemen of the apocalypse and herald the end of the world. Except, due to a mix-up at the hospital, the Antichrist has gone missing in a sleepy English village, and the hell-beast has turned out to be an adorable dog.

Good Omens also stars Jon Hamm, Miranda Richardson, Adria Arjona, Jack Whitehall, Nina Sosanya, Michael McKean and Josie Lawrence.

For those outside Canada, Good Omens is available to stream worldwide via Amazon Prime Video.
