Some images have made their way online, courtesy of Neil Gaiman and team on the set of the upcoming Amazon series, Good Omens. Here is your first real look at David Tennant as the demon Crowley and Michael Sheen as the angel Aziraphale.

And, of course, the great Neil Gaiman was on set to see his apocalyptic masterpiece come to life.
“People have fallen in love with an angel and a demon in a book by Terry Pratchett and me,” Gaiman said, regarding the start of production. “They have been excited and nervous to see how they would appear on screen – and I was probably the most nervous and excited of all. This is a first look. Michael Sheen is the best and finest of bookseller angels, David Tennant the coolest and most delightful of demons. Together they are one hell of a double act (or do I mean one made in Heaven?)”
Described as equal parts humor and horror, fantasy and drama, 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 looking forward to the coming war, and someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.
Joining Tennant and Sheen are Jack Whitehall as Witchfinder Newt Pulsifer, Michael McKean as sergeant of The Witchfinder Army Mr. Shadwell, Miranda Richardson as Madame Tracy, a psychic medium, Adria Arjona as Anathema Device, descendant of Agnes Nutter, Ned Dennehy and Ariyon Bakare as Hastur and Ligur, Dukes of Hell, and Nina Sosanya as Sister Mary Loquacious.
Good Omens is scheduled to premiere sometime in 2019 on Amazon.
