Drawing from the whimsical lore of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s iconic 1990 novel, the first season of Good Omens delved deep into the quirky, yet endearing relationship between an angel and a demon, Aziraphale and Crowley respectively. Their adventures spanned the tapestry of time, leading up to their united efforts in preventing an impending apocalypse. The forthcoming season assures a deeper exploration into their bond and the intriguing twist of archangel Gabriel’s mysterious disappearance, portrayed by the suave Jon Hamm.

But even before its premiere, the fervent anticipation for Good Omens Season 2 was palpable. In a candid chat with Inverse before the SAG-AFTRA strike, Sheen and Tennant amped up the intrigue. Apart from hints of several Doctor Who references – which isn’t surprising given the shared lineage of the cast and crew across both shows – Sheen emphasizes that Easter egg hunters will have their hands full. Expectations are set for both overt and subtle allusions to a range of popular media.

It’s no secret to fans that Good Omens and Doctor Who share deeper ties than the superficial Tennant connection, given he was the renowned Tenth Doctor. The synergy extends to Sheen’s role in the Doctor Who episode “The Doctor’s Wife”, where he lent his voice to the character ‘House’. This episode also showcased Gaiman’s writing prowess, laying foundations for his continued association with the series. Another notable overlap is Douglas Mackinnon, the directorial hand behind Good Omens, who has helmed various Doctor Who episodes, showcasing Tennant, Matt Smith, and Peter Capaldi.

However, the overlap with Good Omens isn’t limited to the Doctor Who universe alone. The first season exhibited a creative blend of crossovers and references. The series gave a nod to the Sherlock series by featuring Mark Gatiss, and to Inside Number 9 by incorporating both Steve Pemberton and its co-creator Reece Shearsmith, who played William Shakespeare in a memorable sequence. To honor the original creators of the novel, Good Omens also deftly integrated subtle touches – Gaiman’s sneaky cameo as a dozing cinema-goer and Pratchett’s recognizable scarf and fedora in Aziraphale’s bookshop, not to mention the presence of several of his books.

While the spotlight will undoubtedly linger on the evolving dynamics between Aziraphale and Crowley, and the unfolding mystery of Gabriel’s return, Good Omens season 2 is more than just its plot. With an ensemble cast that boasts an array of diverse projects, the potential for media references and tributes is expansive. Given the Easter egg revelations by Sheen and Tennant, fans are gearing up for what promises to be an engaging and enriching experience in the next chapter of Good Omens.
