Via ComingSoon, Amazon Studios and BBC are co-producing the Good Omens
adaptation, which will run for 6 hour-long episodes in 2018. Gaiman and
Sir Terry’s story was first published in 1990, and numerous attempts to
adapt it as a movie or a television series failed to come to pass.
Gaiman previously said that he had no intention of trying to adapt it
again after Sir Terry’s death. However, Gaiman later revealed that he received a letter from Sir Terry after his demise that requested Gaiman continue his attempts to get Good Omens made. Now, it appears that he has finally succeeded.
“Almost thirty years ago, Terry Pratchett and I wrote the funniest
novel we could about the end of the world, populated with angels and
demons, not to mention an eleven-year old Antichrist, witchfinders and
the four horsepeople of the Apocalypse,” shared Gaiman in an Amazon
press release. “It became many people’s favourite book. Three decades
later, it’s going to make it to the screen. I can’t think of anyone we’d
rather make it with than BBC Studios, and I just wish Sir Terry were
alive to see it.”
And @neil-gaiman is going to be showrunner?!
This is fantastic news!
