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' just would not be the same without the astonishing Jon Hamm as Gabriel, everyone's worst boss," said Gaiman in a statement. "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."
