first_imgStay on target Syfy Axes ‘Krypton’ Superhero Series After 2 SeasonsWhat to Stream on Amazon Prime This Weekend Thousands of people demanded the cancellation of Good Omens, a dark comedy TV show based on the hit novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Their petition was almost making moves, except it was addressed to the wrong company—Netflix.The petition, which was started by the Return to Order campaign, and has since been removed as of Thursday evening, surpassed its signature goal of 15,000 individuals, USA Today noted. People who signed the petition claimed that the series makes fun of God’s wisdom by showing “devils and Satanists as normal and even good.” They weren’t thrilled that an angel and a demon could be buddies and that God was voiced by a female.Good Omens, a new Amazon Prime series, highlights an angel and a demon who form a friendship (Michael Sheen and David Tennant), so they can save the planet from an apocalypse caused by the anti-Christ, who happens to be a young middle school boy.Gaiman, who caught wind of the petition on Wednesday, poked fun at the petition’s complaints in a cheeky tweet.I love that they are going to write to Netflix to try and get #GoodOmens cancelled. Says it all really. https://t.co/8WNxCY1YmV— Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) June 19, 2019“I love that they are going to write to Netflix to try and get (‘Good Omens’) cancelled,” Gaiman tweeted in response to the anti-Good Omens petition. “Says it all really.”Some audiences have not been happy with movies and TV shows lately: Earlier this month, Marvel fans formed a petition to bring back Tony Stark, since Iron Man sadly didn’t live in the film Avengers: Endgame. In May, many Game of Thrones fans urged HBO to re-do the show’s last season in a Change.org petition, which racked up more than one million signatures.More on Geek.com:‘Good Omens’ Trailer Turns the End of the World Into the Ultimate PartyNeil Gaiman’s ‘Good Omens’ Fantasy Series Is Coming to Amazon on May 31‘Neon Genesis Evangelion’ Completes Netflix’s Anime Ambitionslast_img read more
