Hallelujah, it’s a glorious time to be a Good Omens fan. For one, we’re all still enjoying life. The Apocalypse having been averted after the Antichrist Adam Young elected not to destroy everything. Then in 2019, Amazon gave us a fantastic adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s beloved novel. And earlier this year, we learned the show would return for a second season. We’re getting an all-new story about our favorite angel and demon best friends. But praise Heaven—or Hell—or maybe both?—the good news just keeps on coming. David Tennant and Michael Sheen are also returning to their roles as Crowley and Aziraphale for a new full-cast Good Omens audiobook.
HarperCollins has announced (in news we first heard at io9) an original audiobook production of Gaiman and Pratchett’s novel about an angel and demon working together to avert Armageddon. Sheen and Tennant, the stars of Amazon’s Good Omens series, will also headline the full cast recording. Additionally, Gaiman will contribute his voice to the recording as himself. And Rebecca Front will serve as the story’s narrator.
Sheen and Tennant are the only stars of the Amazon series reprising their roles for the audiobook. The rest of the audio cast includes Katherine Kingsley, Arthur Darvill, Peter Forbes, Gabrielle Glaister, Louis Davison, Pixie Davis, Chris Nelson, Ferdinand Frisby Williams, Adjoa Andoh, Allan Corduner, Kobna Holdbrook-Smith, Josh Hopkins, Lorelei King, Matt Reeves, and Lemn Sissay.
Having any of the cast bring to life our favorite characters will be the perfect excuse to re-read the book. Again. (Not that we needed one.) And this will be a chance to hear some of our favorite characters not seen on the series come to life. We can’t wait to listen to the other Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse bickering over their own monikers.
You can get the Good Omens audiobook ($28.99) at HarperCollins starting November 2. It will also be available on other audiobook sites. So long as the Apocalypse doesn’t actually happen before then. We can’t wait to hear David Tennant and Michael Sheen’s voices again. Now we just have to find out more about the second season of the show.
