Good Omens 2 Cast Reportedly Includes Ty Tennant & Peter Davison
Ty Tennant and Peter Davison are also reportedly members of the cast of Amazon's Michael Sheen & David Tennant-starring Good Omens 2.
A little less than two weeks after fans of Amazon's Michael Sheen & David Tennant-starring sequel season to Neil Gaiman & the late Sir Terry Pratchett's Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (otherwise known as Good Omens 2) received a production update from Gaiman (more on that in a minute), we have some excellent casting news to pass along with a Doctor Who family theme. Based on updates to their respective CVs, Tennant's son, Ty Tennant (who made a huge splash in HBO's House of the Dragon), and father-in-law, Peter Davison (The 5th Doctor), have joined the streaming series' cast. Reportedly, Ty Tennant is set for the role of a character named Ennon, while Davison has been tapped to play a character named Alistair.
Neil Gaiman Offers Production Timeline Update on Good Omens 2
On his Tumblr account earlier this month, Gaiman shared that they would be handing over Good Omens 2 "very soon now," which created a lot of excitement over the possibility of a premiere date arriving sooner rather than later. In a follow-up tweet, Gaiman clarified that handing in the series isn't the final step before it hits screens. "Just a reminder that once we hand it in, we're still months away from it being on your screens," Gaiman explained. "Lots of steps still to go. Every foreign language version needs to be dubbed and subtitled (for example). Sometime in Summer. Amazon Prime will need to decide on their broadcast date." Here's a look at Gaiman's tweet from earlier today clarifying the timeline for the series' release:
When the story continues, Aziraphale and Crowley are getting back into their easy-living lives among the mortals populating London's Soho. But when an unexpected messenger presents them with a surprising mystery, the game's afoot once more for our duo. "Oh, it's wonderful. It's so much fun," Gaiman responded when asked how the sequel season was shaping up during an interview with Rolling Stone. "Partly because I learned so much. The first time you do something, you just learn how to do it, and then you can start to play. So when I wrote and made Good Omens, I was learning, how do you do a 'Good Omens'? I think there's this thing in my head, but how does it work? I feel like Good Omens season one was 'Chopsticks.' This is much more me getting to the whole orchestra."
Tennant and Sheen are joined by Jon Hamm, Miranda Richardson, Maggie Service, Nina Sosanya, Doon Mackichan, Gloria Obianyo, Liz Carr, Quelin Sepulveda, Shelley Conn, Derek Jacobi, Mark Gatiss, Steve Pemberton, Reece Shearsmith, Niamh Walsh, Dame Siân Phillips, Tim Downie, Pete Firman, Andi Osho, and Alex Norton. Benedict Cumberbatch and Frances McDormand will not be returning as Satan and God, respectively. Gaiman will executive produce and serve as co-showrunner with director Douglas Mackinnon. Rob Wilkins, John Finnemore, and BBC Studios Productions' Head of Comedy Josh Cole also executive produce, with Finnemore co-writing alongside Gaiman. Amazon Studios, BBC Studios Productions, The Blank Corporation, and Narrativia are set to produce Good Omens 2.
