“The end is nigh,” so we might as well enjoy Jon Hamm dressed as an angel in these exclusive Good Omens images

Neil Gaiman’s Good Omens adaptation is set to wreak havoc on Amazon when it premieres May 31, bringing with it the Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse, the devilishly good duo of Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and Crowley (David Tennant), and Frances McDormand as God.

The first glimpse of the series, which is based on Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s satirical, pre-apocalyptic novel, focused on the millennia-long yet contentious friendship between the angel Aziraphale and the demon Crowley. Soon after, the first trailer introduced several more players in the fight to stave off—or hasten—the end of the world; God was notably absent, but we got a good look at the CGI Devil and the young antichrist (Sam Taylor Buck), as well as Famine, Pollution, War, and Death (Yusuf Gatewood, Lourdes Faberes, Mireille Enos, and the voice of Brian Cox, respectively). Jon Hamm also swaggered onto the scene as the archangel Gabriel, who seems discomfitingly uninformed for someone so eager for the world to end.

Ahead of the premiere, The A.V. Club is debuting these exclusive images from the series, which include a closer look at some of the slightly less divine beings, including Newton Pulsifer (Jack Whitehall), who falls into witchhunting for lack of the desire or ability to do anything else. As Newton’s commanding officer Sgt. Shadwell, Michael McKean shows off a weapon in his fitful battle against witches. His neighbor (in the book, anyway), Madame Tracy a.k.a “The Painted Jezebel” (Miranda Richardson) looks on, just as ready to commune with spirits as she is feed the Witchfinder Army. The complete slideshow is below:
