Good Omens season 2 cast: Meet the characters
David Tennant and Michael Sheen are back for the hit fantasy show's second season.
After four years off our screens, Good Omens has made its return to Prime Video for season 2.
David Tennant and Michael Sheen have, of course, resumed their roles as Crowley and Aziraphale in the brand-new story, with plenty of other faces also returning, both as familiar and new characters.
Previously speaking to The Radio Times Podcast about the dynamic between the two leads, Tennant said: "In terms of what exactly the relationship between Crowley and Aziraphale is, I think they both see it very differently, and they both interpret it in different ways. And they would certainly have different ways of describing it objectively.
"But I do think they help each other to understand each other, and the series is a sort of journey of them coming ever closer, through circumstance really. I'm sort of fudging the answer because I don't want to commit to anything."
He added: "I think what's important for viewers going into series 2, is that many people have projected many things onto what that relationship is and I don't want to second guess that by defining it. Because I may be seen to have some sort of defining knowledge of what that is. And I don't know that I do.
"So I think enjoy this wonderful creation that Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, these two characters that they conjured forth and just... there's a joy to them interacting. It certainly is a joy to play, and hopefully is a joy to witness. Beyond that, define us as you will!"
