Filming is well underway on the second series of Good Omens in Scotland and further casting has now been confirmed.

New cast will include Sian Phillips, Pete Firman, Andi Osho, Tim Downie and Alex Norton.  

Previously confirmed cast are Jon Hamm, Miranda Richardson, Maggie Service, Nina Sosanya, Doon Mackichan, Gloria Obianyo, Liz Carr, Quelin Sepulveda, and Shelley Conn.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Frances McDormand will not be returning. 

Neil Gaiman, writer and co-showrunner, said: “We are so thrilled that we were able to get so many fabulous actors to return to the Good Omens family. Some of them are reprising roles, some of them are playing completely new characters. And we are just as thrilled by the people coming to the Good Omens team for the first time. We have an ensemble cast of astonishing talent, and seeing what they’re giving us is a daily treat. I can’t wait until the rest of the world gets that treat, too.”

Douglas Mackinnon, director and co-showrunner, added: “We are happily working our way through filming Good Omens 2 in Scotland and these new cast arrivals will only increase the pleasure of it all. The remarkable Scottish crew are loving making the magic that is Good Omens and we can’t wait to share our stories with the world.”

Originally based on Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s novel, the new six-episode season 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.
