*Warning: Spoilers ahead for Good Omens season 2.*


It's been a long time coming but we've finally seen the return of our favourite angel and demon in Good Omens season 2 - and what a comeback!

With the release of six new episodes, our hearts have been well and truly torn apart as Crowley (David Tennant) and Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) were forced to part ways. Fans have certainly been left on a cliffhanger, with many clamouring for a season 3.

But, in the meantime, RadioTimes.com caught up with producer Sarah-Kate Fenelon about that ending, which shows Crowley declaring his feelings for Aziraphale and kissing him before the pair unhappily go their separate ways in a heartbreaking split-screen scene.

She explained: "The end of episode 6 will break people's hearts and it will be, probably, what they want - but not in a way that they expect - which is the best kind of writing.

"Also, I think Michael Sheen and David Tennant have such wonderful on-screen chemistry. This season they're in it a lot more than they were in season 1. And to bring them to a moment in time like that, without ruining it, is just very good storytelling, I think."

She added of the gut-wrenching split-screen scene: "I love Douglas [McKinnon], our director's idea to have a split screen at the end and show both of their states of mind - and you can just seen Michael Sheen's face having thoughts and it's almost like you're [reading his mind]. It's extraordinary. And the way that David Tennant, Crowley, gets into the car and he turns off A Nightingale Sang in Berkley Square, and it's just heartbreaking."

Although fans' theories about a romance between the pair were very much confirmed in season 2, Tennant recently opened up to The Radio Times Podcast about how their relationship is undefinable.

He 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.

"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!"
