Good Omens, Amazon and BBC’s upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s cult novel, fleshed out its central relationship—the odd couple of angel Aziraphale and demon Crowley—with its first teaser. The latest glimpse at the apocalyptic comedy broadens its lens, introducing us not only to the Antichrist, an 11-year old named Adam, but also to the motley crew that is the Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse.


Jon Hamm’s archangel Gabriel swings by to move the story along, and Nick Offerman, who here plays Adam’s pops, is also on hand. We also catch a fiery glimpse of Satan, though, for now at least, we’ll have to wait to hear Benedict Cumberbatch’s robust baritone spill from his cursed mouth.

Watch it below.

The six-part series follows Aziraphale and Crowley as they try to prolong their 6,000-year old friendship by delaying the apocalypse, which is rapidly approaching. Michael Sheen and David Tennant star as the central pair, while Miranda Richardson, Michael McKean, Mireille Enos, and Jack Whitehall round out the cast.


The end begins on May 31.
