Amazon Studios has given the green light to Good Omens, an hourlong limited comedy series based on Neil Gaiman’s (American Gods) and Terry Pratchett’s (Colour of Magic) novel.

Written by Gaiman, the six-part series is set to debut in 2018 on Prime Video. Gaiman will also serve as showrunner. BBC Studios is co-producing the series with Narrativia and The Blank Corporation and in association with BBC Worldwide for Amazon Prime Video and the BBC.

Good Omens takes place in 2018 when the Apocalypse is near and Final Judgment is set to descend upon humanity. 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 a somewhat fussy angel, and a fast-living demon are not actually looking forward to the coming war, and someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.

Executive Producers of the series are Neil Gaiman, Caroline Skinner (Doctor Who), and Chris Sussman (Fleabag) for BBC Studios; Rob Wilkins (Choosing to Die) and Rod Brown (Going Postal) for Narrativia. Gaiman will adapt the novel for the screen.
