The global platform announced today that Neil Gaiman and Sir Terry Pratchett's TV adaptation has been ordered for a third – but final – series, leaving fans with mixed feelings.
One viewer, Rebecca Murray, on X, formerly known as Twitter, summed up her mixed emotions, sharing: 'Yes! #GoodOmens has been renewed for season 3. It will be the last season of the program. Disappointment.'
Echoing Rebecca's sentiment, Megan Patricia added: 'I'm not very happy about seeing the “third and FINAL season.” I just got them back, don't play with my emotions about taking them off again #GoodOmens.
However, social media user Lord of Juiceboxes saw the silver lining and pointed out that it was a relief that there were more good omens in the works when other streamers like Netflix were brutal with cancellations.
Explaining their position, they said: 'This exact phrase is what we are all grateful for today. May their story not end with this heartbreak, may “I forgive you” and “don’t worry” not be their final words to each other #good omens.
Teasing the season 3 plot, Neil, who also serves as executive producer, writer and showrunner, said he was “really happy” to finish the story, which he plotted with Sir Terry in 1989 and 2006.
He added: “In season three, we will once again deal with the end of the world. Plans for Armageddon are going wrong. Only Crowley and Aziraphale working together can hope to fix this. And they're not talking.
Filming for the series is set to begin soon in Scotland.
Released in 2019, Good Omens follows several characters, all trying to encourage or prevent an imminent Armageddon, as seen through the eyes of the angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and the demon Crowley (David Tennant).
Throughout the second season, the relationship between Aziraphale and Crowley intensified beyond a level they had experienced since the beginning of time, with the pair sharing a tense kiss at the end.
Michael previously told Metro.co.uk that the future of Good Omens was “in the hands of the public”.
He said in August: 'If people watch it and like it, then there will be a third season – it's that simple.
The actor continued, “We all hope that's the case, but we'll have to wait and see and hope that people really like and appreciate what we did in season two.”
Good Omens is available to stream on Prime Video.
