So this is how the world ends: with a raucously cool new trailer for Good Omens.

Amazon on Wednesday released the first full-length trailer for its anticipated limited series Good Omens, which is set to bow with all six episodes on Friday, May 31. But here it is, and it's got something big to lay on us.

Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex) and David Tennant (Jessica Jones) star as fussy angel and rare book dealer Aziraphale and the fast-living demon Crowley, respectively. They must work together to find an 11-year-old boy named Brian, who happens to be the Antichrist.

Gaiman is set to write and act as showrunner for the series, having received a posthumous blessing from Pratchett to bring the story to life after Pratchett's death in 2015. Gaiman serves as an executive producer. The production boasts an absolutely fantastic cast, including Jon Hamm, Nick Offerman, Jack Whitehall, Miranda Richardson, Adria Arjona, Michael McKean, Anna Maxwell Martin, and Mireille Enos, among others.

The stamps on the envelope have pictures of hearts and resemble ones issued by Ireland's post office for Valentine's Day 2018. No person or group claimed responsibility for sending the devices and police said they haven't made any arrests.

It is based on Neil Gaiman and Terry Pritchett's 1990 novel of the same name.

Good Omens was commissioned for Amazon Prime Video and for BBC Two by Patrick Holland, Controller, BBC Two; Shane Allen, Controller, BBC Comedy Commissioning and BBC commissioning editor Gregor Sharp.

Since the dawn of time, Aziraphale and Crowley have lived on Earth, largely minding their business and following orders from their respective bosses on the two sides of the great conflict between heaven and hell that's prophesied to one day end the world.
