Will Good Omens get a spin-off? Creator Neil Gaiman shuts down sequel hopes

Neil Gaiman has addressed the chances of a spin-off to Good Omens, and it doesn’t sound like an idea they’re looking to pursue.

Based on the novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, Good Omens stars Michael Sheen and David Tennant as angels and demons aiming to prevent the apocalypse.

The six-part miniseries boasts an enormous cast with dozens of characters, including Miranda Richardson and Jon Hamm, leaving open a number of possibilities for spin-off potential.

While it’s a trend which has become a convenient way to keep big shows continuing for big money success, like Game Of Thrones and Breaking Bad, it’s not looking like a pathway for Good Omens.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk, Neil said: ‘I think even talking about a sequel is wrong in some ways because the way I want people to see Good Omens isn’t, “Ah it’s the first season of Good Omens.”

‘I want them to see Good Omens and get the idea that basically what we set out to make is a six hour long movie.’

Executive producer Rob Wilkins added: ‘We’re very proud that Good Omens has a beginning, a middle and an end. Good Omens is Good Omens, if you love the book you’ll love it because of that. If you’ve never read the book, you’ll love it because of that.’

Neil previously opened up about the show’s origins, and how he believes the show wouldn’t have existed without a nudge from the late co-author Terry Pratchett.
