Aziraphale, an angel, and Crowley, a demon, agree to join forces to find the missing Anti-Christ and to stop the war that will end everything. Based on the best-selling novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, Good Omens follows an unlikely duo and their quest to save the world.

The impressive cast is led by David Tennant and Michael Sheen and Mad Men's Jon Hamm.

Commenting on his casting, Daniel Mays says: "Beyond overjoyed to be jumping on board Good Omens. It's not everyday you get to play the father of the antichrist! Neil Gaiman's scripts are out of this world and the cast they've assembled are second to none. Can't wait to get cracking!"

Sian Brooke says: “I’m thrilled to be part of this fantastic adaptation of Good Omens and working with such a great team of cast and creatives.  It’s certainly going to be an adventure playing the unknowing mother of the antichrist!”
