Jon Hamm Returns to Amazon’s Good Omens


Amazon Studios has revealed that Jon Hamm will return as the Archangel Gabriel in the second season of Good Omens for Prime Video.

Based on Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s novel of the same name, the series centers on demons and angels living on Earth. Hamm will return as the leader of Heaven, alongside new cast members Liz Carr (Devs, Silent Witness) and Quelin Sepulvida (Havoc, The Man Who Fell to Earth).

The new season will explore storylines that go beyond the original source material to illuminate the friendship between Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and Crowley (David Tennant). Gaiman will continue to executive produce and co-showrun with executive producer Douglas Mackinnon, who will also return to direct.

Gaiman said, “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.”

Mackinnon added, “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.”
