Release date of Second Season:
After the enormous success of the season one the fans are eagerly and keenly waiting for the series, Good Omens season 2. The release date of second season had not been confirmed and there is no official news regarding the release date and the renewal of the series. The good thing is that, the series had not been dropped down by Amazon prime. The series creator of Good Omens Neil Gaiman had revealed to Digital Spy that, a big obstacle is standing on the way of second season of Good Omens. Fans and everyone those who are involved in the show, express their hope as they want the Angel and the Demon could reunite someday. But Michael Sheen informed that the scheduling with the star cast and crew has been a problem. When Neil Gaiman was asked the probability of making the second season, he assured that he still didn’t close the door for Good Omens. He wants to write the next part of the novel and create more two seasons.
He doesn’t want to bring up the second season immediately after the first season. He is balancing his life of fatherhood with the comics, books and other series which he has been working on. That’s what is holding him up. Due to the Covid-19 breakout, even if the series renews, the production will not start until the effect of the virus slows down. So the second season will not be released before 2021. So, we need to wait long for the second season.
