What will happen in Good Omens?
The official Amazon Prime synopsis for Good Omens reads: “The End of the World is coming.
“This means a fussy Angel (played by Michael Sheen) and a loose-living Demon (David Tennant) who’ve become overly fond of life on Earth are forced to form an unlikely alliance to stop Armageddon.
“But they have lost the Antichrist, an 11-year-old boy unaware he’s meant to bring upon the end of days.
“This forces them to embark on an adventure to find him and save the world before it’s too late.”
The Amazon series is based on the Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman book, once named one of the UK’s top 100 novels.
Good Omens has an all-star cast, with Sheen and Tennant starring alongside Jon Hamm, Benedict Cumberbatch, Miranda Richardson, Jack Whitehall, Josie Lawrence and Brian Cox.
The rollercoaster-ride of a series also includes Satanic nuns, baby swapping, witch-finders, a sex worker/psychic medium and a lot of Queen.
