In addition to her acclaimed film work, which most recently earned her an Academy Award for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, McDormand's TV credits include HBO's Olive Kitteridge mini (for which she won an Emmy), voice work on The Simpsons and the Fox dramedy State of Grace, and Hill Street Blues. Sheen and Tennant star as fussy angel and rare book dealer Aziraphale and the fast living demon Crowley, respectively. "We knew God had to be a woman", Neil Gaiman, who co-wrote the original novel and is serving as the adaptation's showrunner, told THR "We were talking about great American actresses because we knew we wanted it to be an American voice".

Also starring Jon Hamm as the angel Gabriel, Jack Whitehall as wage clerk turned witch-hunter Newton Pulsifer, Michael McKean as witch-finder Sgt. Shadwell, and Miranda Richardson as psychic medium Madame Tracy, Good Omens arrives in 2019 on Amazon Prime. Alas, they have lost the Antichrist, an 11-year-old boy unaware he's meant to bring upon the end of days, and that forces them to embark on an adventure to find him and save the world before it's too late.
