GOOD OMENS has added to its star-studded cast.

The six-episode series, which is based on the book by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, already has a star-studded cast led up by David Tennant and Michael Sheen, but they’ve added another big name to their roster of guest stars.

“In episode 6, there is the appearance of Satan…we suddenly realized we have Satan turning up and we needed somebody who could give Frances McDormand [who plays God] a run for her money,” Gaiman said during the show’s Television Critics Association panel. “We needed a performance that would work.”

Enter: Benedict Cumberbatch, who will portray the role.

“You can actually say, ‘no s–t, Satan,'” executive producer Douglas Mackinnon joked of Cumberbatch’s famous other television role.

In addition to Cumberbatch, Jon Hamm, Anna Maxwell Martin, Josie Lawrence, Adria Arjona, Michael McKean, Jack Whitehall, Miranda Richardson, and Nick Offerman will also appear on the series.
