Amazon Prime

A Christian group has signed a petition calling for Netflix to cancel the show Good Omens, despite the fact that it’s an Amazon Prime series.

The six-part series is adapted from Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s 1990 novel of the same name. It stars Michael Sheen as angel Aziraphale and David Tennant as demon Crowley, who are trying to prevent the coming of the antichrist and thus the end of the world.

Over 20,000 Christians signed a petition initially calling for Netflix to cancel the show, because “this series presents devils and Satanists as normal and even good, where they merely have a different way of being, and mocks God’s wisdom.” They have since realized their mistake, but not before Netflix and Amazon had some fun trolling each other on Twitter.
