That hair, you guys. David Tennant is Crowley.

Based on the acclaimed novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, Good Omens will be filming for the next six months in London, Oxfordshire and locations in South Africa. Joining them in the cast for this 6-episode miniseries are Adria Ajorna as Anathema, Nina Sosanya as Sister Mary Loquacious, Ned Dennehy as Hastur, and Ariyon Bakare as Ligur. Telling the story of an approaching judgment day, the series includes prophecies, angels, demons, and more with the humor and modern twist Pratchett and Gaiman are known for.

Whitehall will be playing Newton Pulsifer aka Newt - an unfulfilled wages clerk turned witch-hunter - and McKean will take on the role of Sergeant Shadwell, the leader of the witch-finder army who sends him on his mission. And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist... Miranda Richardson will play Madame Tracy, the psychic medium and part-time courtesan who provides a helping hand to the pair as they try to save the world from Armageddon.

Good Omens premieres on Amazon in 2018.

Tennant (Crowley) sports a chic jeans, jacket and waistcoat combination with a skinny tie and shades, and Sheen (Aziraphale) matches his dazzling hairdo with a beige coat, suit and bow-tie with golden shoes. Touches of both Pratchett (the end is predicted by The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch) and Gaiman (the harbingers of doom are the very modern Four Horsepeople of the Apocalypse) abound. "This is them in the opening scenes, 11 years ago, in St James's Park". Three decades later, it's going to make it to the screen.

BBC Studios Head of Comedy Chris Sussman said, "Good Omens has always been one of my favourite books, and it's hugely exciting not just to be able to bring it to life, but to do so with scripts from Neil Gaiman himself".
