Season 1 followed Aziraphale and demon Crowley (David Tennant) who have a fondness for Earth and form an unlikely alliance to stop Armageddon as they watched over the Antichrist, an 11-year-old boy who is unaware of his deadly fate.
After debuting in 2019, Amazon surprised viewers with Season 2 renewal news in June of this year, teasing that filming for the six-part humorous fantasy drama would begin later this year in Scotland. Sheen’s photo hints at the start of filming with his transformed hair.

Having been on Earth since The Beginning and with the Apocalypse thwarted, both Aziraphale and Crowley are getting back to live amongst the mortals in London’s Soho. But don’t expect easy living for this duo as they’re presented with a surprising mystery by an unexpected messenger.
While Sheen and Tennant are on board for Season 2, it’s unclear if any other Season 1 stars will return among which included Jon Hamm, Nick Offerman, Jack Whitehall, Miranda Richardson, Adria Arjona, Michael McKean, and Mireille Enos.
