Earlier today, we found out that Good Omens — the Amazon Prime Video show about an angel and a demon forging an unlikely partnership over millennia — is officially returning for a third and final season. The first season of the show adapted the 1990 book Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. The third season will adapt an idea for a sequel that Gaiman and Pratchett had before Pratchett’s death in 2015. The second season was a bridge between the two.

“I’m so happy finally to be able to finish the story Terry and I plotted in 1989 and in 2006,” Gaiman said in a statement. “Terry was determined that if we made ‘Good Omens’ for television, we could take the story all the way to the end. Season One was all about averting Armageddon, dangerous prophecies, and the End of the World. Season Two was sweet and gentle, although it may have ended less joyfully than a certain Angel and Demon might have hoped. Now in Season Three, we will deal once more with the end of the world. The plans for Armageddon are going wrong. Only Crowley and Aziraphale working together can hope to put it right. And they aren’t talking.”

That’s Gaiman’s official word. He also weighed in more unofficially on his Tumblr, where he said simply of the renewal announcement, “The chorus of Wahoos is deafening and delightful.” That about sums it up.

Gaiman also weighed in on a cute little holiday playlist for Good Omens lead character Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and Crowley (David Tennant). It dropped on the official Good Omens Twitter account:

“I added three songs to this playlist,” Gaiman wrote on his Tumblr. “Which three I will have to leave to you to discover.” We’re accepting all guesses. Maybe that will occupy fans as they wait for Good Omens season 3 to arrive sometime in 2025.
