Fans will be glad to know that their romantic tension hasn't faded in their time apart. In fact, it might be stronger than ever.
The two aren't alone, as there's a (mostly naked) Jon Hamm as the Archangel Gabriel hanging around the shop too. But it's not the possibility of him third-wheeling that's the issue, it's that he's escaped from Heaven and everyone up there is stressing out.
He also seems to have amnesia, and our two heroes aren't entirely sure what to do with him, except keep him hidden from not-so-human police officers that are poking around until they can figure out what's going on.
Showrunner and the original novel's co-creator Neil Gaiman recently teased that his two leads, Michael Sheen and David Tennant, have seen early cuts of season 2's six episodes and were very impressed.
"They've both been sent it," he said. "I know David has seen it, because he left me a stunned video message about how he only planned to watch the first episode and watched the whole thing and how wonderful it was.
"Michael has been directing his first TV series, and I don’t think he’s had a spare five hours to watch anything yet, although I know he wants to."
Jon Hamm isn't the only cast member joining the show for season 2. David Tennant's father-in-law Peter Davison is playing the character Alistair, while his son Ty is playing a character named Ennon.
Good Omens season 1 is streaming now on Prime Video, where season 2 will premiere on July 28.
