Do you know where the Antichrist is? We ask because, apparently, he's gone missing. More specifically, those who were supposed to keep track of him have ... lost him.
This is the message of the latest teaser for Good Omens, a miniseries adapted from the book by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. The series is set to debut on Amazon Prime in 2019, and has been fully adapted by Gaiman himself — Sir Terry Pratchett passed away in 2015, so he could not be involved. Gaiman (as well as director Douglas McKinnon) are here to honor his memory, as well as tell the fantastic tale of the book.
The story will find the demon Crowley (David Tennant) and the angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) trying to prevent Armageddon — they've had an unlikely friendship (or co-dependence, whichever) since time began, and now their plans have hit a major snag.
Take a look at the hilarious teaser that was tweeted out earlier today (click on the tweet below to get to the embedded video):
Whether or not you believe what is written in The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch, it is safe to say that the tone of this trailer is very much in line with everything that fans hope the Good Omens miniseries will be. The theme used in the teaser helps immensely, and an even better omen is that this music that will be used in the show.
Gaiman confirmed that the theme heard here is none other than the Good Omens theme, written by David Arnold (Stargate, Independence Day, Casino Royale), the composer for the series. As Gaiman tweets, "This is also the first time you can hear [David Arnold's] glorious Good Omens theme."
A release date has yet to be announced for the show, but expect it at some point on Amazon Prime in 2019. This is one instance (maybe the only instance) where Armageddon can't come soon enough.
