The show, which is based on Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s book of the same name, will “bring to life a serendipitous conversation” between the two that took place 35 years ago in its third season.
Gaiman and the late Pratchett mapped out “what happens next” in the story of angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and Demon Crowley (David Tennant), the show’s production team said.
Gaiman will continue to write and executive produce the season finale.
“I’m so happy finally to be able to finish the story Terry and I plotted in 1989 and in 2006,” he said.
“Terry was determined that if we made Good Omens for television, we could take the story all the way to the end. Season One was all about averting Armageddon, dangerous prophecies, and the End of the World.
“Season two was sweet and gentle, although it may have ended less joyfully than a certain Angel and Demon might have hoped.
“Now in season three, we will deal once more with the end of the world. The plans for Armageddon are going wrong. Only Crowley and Aziraphale working together can hope to put it right. And they aren’t talking.”
The first season of Good Omens aired in May 2019 and led to the renewal of season two that premiered in July 2023 and explored the storyline of “the ineffable friendship between Aziraphale, a fussy angel and rare-book dealer, and the fast-living demon Crowley.”
Filming of the final season, which is produced by BBC Studios, will begin soon in Scotland, the streamer confirmed and will premiere on Prime Video in more than 240 countries.
The release date is yet to be announced.
