The second season of the fantasy comedy series Good Omens is set to premier on Amazon Prime Video on July 28. The series, written by Neil Gaiman, is based on Terry Patchett’s novel of the same name.

The second season, consisting of six episodes, explores 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.
