A movie adaptation was attempted in the mid 1990s with Terry Gilliam directing and Robin Williams and Johnny Depp starring, but the financing fell through.

According to Neil Gaiman, co-author Terry Pratchett's last request to him before his death in 2015 was for Neil to write the screen adaptation. Previous attempts to bring the book to television failed due to not being able to find a writer able to adapt the book while keeping its spirit and humor.

Neil Gaiman revealed at a panel during New York Comic Con 2018 that the Bentley used in the show is a 1934 model. Neil admitted that no research was done on cars during the writing of the book, so when it came time to select a car for the show they found that the 1929 model mentioned in the book did not have the look that the authors had been going for.

Terry Pratchett famously included several humorous footnotes in most of his novels. Neil Gaiman attempted to include as many of the Good Omens footnotes as possible in the show as Easter eggs. An example is the table tennis set which belongs to the Chattering Order of Saint Beryl.

Prior to his death in 2015, Pratchett recorded a cameo for this series alongside Gaiman in which they play two policemen. Due his debilitating condition, Pratchett was unable to read the script so as they filmed their scene together, Neil Gaiman would say his own line first and then recite Terry Pratchett's lines and Terry would echo them. Neil Gaiman has said that this is one of his happiest memories of his time with Terry Prachett.

Michael Sheen, playing the angel and book dealer Aziraphale, has said: "I first read Good Omens as a teenager and it's been one of my favorite stories ever since.'

Terry Gilliam tried to adapt this as a movie several times over ten years before admitting defeat. He came closest in January of 2002 when he had Robin Williams on board to play Aziraphale, and Johnny Depp was signed up for the part of Crowley. He had raised fifty million dollars from investors and he just needed a Hollywood studio and a bit more money to start production. His confidence in the project was completely shattered when he found himself in a post 9/11 yet pre-"Pirates of the Caribbean" Hollywood where every studio and producer he met told him the same thing: "nobody wants to see Johnny Depp movies".

Josie Lawrence plays the witch Agnes Nutter, a part Lawrence also played in the 2014 BBC Radio 4 adaptation of Good Omens.

Pratchett was diagnosed with a rare form of Alzheimer's disease called posterior cortical atrophy (PCA) in 2007, a condition where the symptoms root themselves more in the physical rather than cognitive.

The series is based on the 1991 Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman novel "Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch".

Following one hundred nine consecutive days of filming, principle photography ended on March 10, 2018 in Cape Town, South Africa.
