Earlier this year, we learned that Good Omens is returning for a second season after its six-episode limited series run back in 2019. The news certainly made a lot of fans happy and excited to see the iconic duo of Aziraphale and Crowley come back for another adventure. Now, it looks like another beloved character from the first season is returning along the ride.

Amazon Studios has announced that Jon Hamm is returning for the second season of Good Omens reprising the role of Archangel Gabriel. Doon Mackichan and Gloria Obianyo, who played Archangel Michael and Uriel respectively in the first season, are also set to return. They are joined by new cast members Liz Carr (as Saraqael), Quelin Sepulveda (as Muriel), and Shelly Conn, who will play a key character from Hell.

Co-showrunner and writer Neil Gaiman said in a statement, "Good Omens 2 just would not be the same without the astonishing Jon Hamm as Gabriel, everyone's worst boss. The story that Terry Pratchett and I created all those years ago continues to take us from London's Soho into Heaven and Hell. It's a delight for me to bring back characters we loved (or hated) and bring in new characters, from the shiniest top floors of Heaven to the dankest basements of Hell, to love (or to hate, or to love to hate or hate to love). All of them are part of the strange and unusually beloved family of Good Omens."

Based on the logline, the second season will explore storylines that go beyond the original source material to illuminate the uncanny friendship between Aziraphale and Crowley. Having been on Earth since The Beginning, and with the Apocalypse thwarted, Aziraphale and Crowley are getting back to easy living amongst mortals in London’s Soho when an unexpected messenger presents a surprising mystery. It is currently in production in Scotland.

Jon Hamm's Gabriel was one of the beloved characters during the first season so it is exciting to hear that he is going to return in the second season and see his dynamic again with Aziraphale. It is just great in general that the series will be coming back for another season and see where they go with the two characters and there's no doubt that fans would love to spend another time with them.
