Good Omens 2 Cast Updates: Jon Hamm Returns As Gabriel

Jon Hamm is back as the Archangel Gabriel in the second season of the hit Amazon Prime show Good Omens. He'll be joined by his heavenly co-stars from Season 1: Doon Mackichan as Michael and Gloria Obianyo as Uriel, alongside new cast members Liz Carr as Saraqael and Quelin Sepulveda as Muriel. 

On the infernal side, another key character from Hell this season will be played by Bridgerton star Shelley Conn. 

The newly confirmed cast members will join David Tennant and Michael Sheen who return as celestial duo Crowley and Aziraphale. Also confirmed are Paul Adeyefa, Michael McKean, Miranda Richardson, Maggie Service, Reece Shearsmith and Nina Sosanya. 

Neil Gaiman, writer and producer, says of Jon's return, "Good Omens 2 just would not be the same without the astonishing Jon Hamm as Gabriel, everyone's worst boss. The story that Terry Pratchett and I created all those years ago continues to take us from London's Soho into Heaven and Hell. It's a delight for me to bring back characters we loved (or hated) and bring in new characters, from the shiniest top floors of Heaven to the dankest basements of Hell, to love (or to hate, or to love to hate or hate to love). All of them are part of the strange and unusually beloved family of Good Omens.”

Director Douglas Mackinnon adds, "I couldn’t be happier that Jon has come back to do more Good Omens as the Archangel Gabriel, who is second in command in Heaven. He joins us nearly halfway through production, when we have already welcomed to the Good Omens 2 family familiar faces in familiar roles, familiar faces in unfamiliar roles, and unfamiliar faces in unfamiliar roles. We also have an unfamiliar face in a familiar role."

Originally based on Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s international best-selling novel, the new season of Good Omens will explore storylines that go beyond the original source material to illuminate the uncanny friendship between Aziraphale, a fussy angel and rare book dealer, and the fast-living demon Crowley. Having been on Earth since The Beginning, and with the Apocalypse thwarted, Aziraphale and Crowley are getting back to easy living amongst mortals in London’s Soho when an unexpected messenger presents a surprising mystery. 

The new season is produced by Amazon Studios, BBC Studios Productions, The Blank Corporation, and Narrativia and is currently in production in Scotland.
