Deadline News confirmed that Benedict Cumberbatch and Frances McDormand, who were both in the previous series, will not be in season two.

New faces joining the Good Omens 2 family include stand-up comic and Silent Witness star Liz Carr as the angel Saraqael, and Terra Nova and Bridgerton star Shelley Conn.

Filming for the show, which is jointly produced by Amazon Studios and BBC Studios, started in the Capital in October last year, and is set to continue until March.

American actor Jon Hamm will return for the second season of the fantasy TV series.

Much of the shooting has taken place at a film studio in Bathgate, where London's Soho and Heaven have been recreated on sound stages.

Good Omens was created and written by Neil Gaiman, who based the show off of his and Terry Pratchett's 1990 novel of the same name.

Gaiman was recently asked about the choice of shooting location on the social media site Tumblr. He answered the question, and wrote:Bathgate was chosen because it has a great big studio where we could build Soho”.
