It’s the end of the world as we know it… but from the looks Amazon Prime Video‘s Good Omens, it doesn’t plan on shuffling off its earthly coil quietly. In fact, it’s safe to say that the road to “The End Times” is gonna’ be a right messy one. Based on Neil Gaiman’s (American Gods) and Terry Pratchett’s (Colour of Magic) novel and written by showrunner Gaiman, the six-part adaptation introduces us to angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and demon Crowley (David Tennant) as they try to find the Anti-Christ… and try to figure out the logic behind ending the world.
Speaking of the Anti-Christ… here’s a look at Sam Taylor Buck adorable world’s-end-bringer – but where would any self-respecting Anti-Christ be without its opening act? That’s right, we also have a look at The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse – in all their slightly super-villain-like glory:

The End of the World is coming, which means a fussy Angel and a loose-living Demon who’ve become overly fond of life on Earth are forced to form an unlikely alliance to stop Armageddon. But they have lost the Antichrist, an 11-year-old boy unaware he’s meant to bring upon the end of days, forcing them to embark on an adventure to find him and save the world before it’s too late.
With Armageddon just days away, the armies of Heaven and Hell are amassing and The Four Horsemen are ready to ride. Aziraphale, an angel, and Crowley, a demon, agree to join forces to find the missing Anti-Christ and to stop the war that will end everything. Based on the best-selling novel by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, Good Omens follows an unlikely duo and their quest to save the world.
