Good Omens director and exec exits show ahead of potential season 3
Douglas Mackinnon has confirmed he will no longer work on Good Omens.
Good Omens director and executive producer Douglas Mackinnon has confirmed his exit from the show before a potential renewal for season 3.
However, after sharing a photo of the set on Instagram, Mackinnon confirmed in the comments: "I'm not involved with this show anymore."
Mackinnon is also known for his work on Doctor Who, Sherlock, Line of Duty, Outlander and Silent Witness.
While Prime Video has not officially confirmed season 3 of the show, Deadline has cited sources saying a renewal is on the horizon.
Responding to the Good Omens renewal reports, showrunner Neil Gaiman said on Tumblr: "We aren't quite there yet. But Amazon has definitely been doing things that make a third season more likely."
Gaiman has been open about envisioning one more season for the show to wrap up the story of Aziraphale (Sheen) and Crowley (Tennant) after season 2 ended with the pair of them heartbroken and going their separate ways.
Gaiman said via Twitter, which was recently rebranded to X: "It won't be confirmed unless enough people watch season 2 to make Amazon happy. And it's strike season, which makes everything harder.
"But obviously season 3 is all planned and plotted and, if I get to make it, will take the story to a satisfying end. If I wasn't on strike I'd be writing it currently."
He added: "Our set is still standing in a studio in Bathgate and we would all love to get back there and finish the story in the way Terry and I plotted, long ago."
She told RadioTimes.com: "Where we end, I think, is so beautifully written because none of it's tied up in a bow, none of it's Hollywood magic. It's real within fantasy - and what is going to happen next?"
RadioTimes.com has contacted Prime Video and reps for Mackinnon for comment.
