Michael Sheen has weighed in on the possibility of a season two of Good Omens

Michael Sheen has opened up about the ‘difficulty’ of a season two of Good Omens.

The actor plays Aziraphale in the Amazon Prime series, based on Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s book of the same name.

And he told Digital Spy that while he knows “there’s a lot of interest” in the idea of a season two, he’s not too sure it will happen – as Pratchett and Gaiman didn’t write a follow-up to their original book.

He continued:

“I know there’s a lot of interest in it, and I know a lot of the fans of Good Omens would really love there to be something else, but the difficulty of it is, of course there was only one book of it written, and that book was written by Neil and Terry Pratchett and this series was very much a labour of love on Neil’s part.

“If there was to be anything done further with it, that would be quite a difficult thing for Neil to wrestle with because of Terry not being around and because it was so fundamentally the pair of them whose vision it was.

“Who knows? We’ll see. But I’m not a part of that conversation.”

Based on the best selling novel of the same name by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, the series begins in the pre-apocalyptic 2018.

Aziraphale, an angel, and Crowley, a demon, have formed an unlikely friendship spanning 6,000 years and have grown fond of life on earth.

However, with the end of time growing  near and the approaching Armageddon the pair are forced to join forces to try and find a way to save the world.
