"Good Omens" (TV show) is an hour-long limited comedy series on Amazon that is based on Neil Gaiman's ("American Gods") and Terry Pratchett's ("Colour of Magic") acclaimed novel of the same name.

The series takes place in 2018 when the Apocalypse is near and Final Judgment is set to descend upon humanity. According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter Witch (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.

So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, and tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except Aziraphale, a somewhat fussy angel, and Crowley, a fast-living demon — both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle — are not actually looking forward to the coming war. And ... someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.

"Good Omens" is produced by BBC Studios, Narrativia and The Blank Corporation and in association with BBC Worldwide for Amazon Prime Video and the BBC. The series is entirely written by Neil Gaiman, who will also serve as showrunner and executive producer, alongside Caroline Skinner ("Doctor Who"), and Chris Sussman ("Fleabag") for BBC Studios; Rob Wilkins ("Choosing to Die") and Rod Brown ("Going Postal") for Narrativia.
