Hey @netflix, we’ll cancel Stranger Things if you cancel Good Omens. 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,” the petition read. Popular Photos

The show, which premiered on Amazon Prime Video on May 31, follows the demon Crowley (David Tennant) and the angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen), who, being accustomed to life on Earth, seek to prevent the arrival of the Antichrist and the Armageddon. According to The Guardian, a Christian group called Return to Order has taken issues with show’s depiction of angels, demons and the Apocalypse and petitioned Netflix to pull the plug on it.

“The Netflix series Good Omens portrays the agents of Good and Evil as fighters in an arbitrary struggle devoid of meaning and truth. Responding to the petition, which has till now garnered 20,186 signatures, Gaiman took a sly dig as he wrote on Twitter, “This is so beautiful… Promise me you won’t tell them?”
The Twitter handles of both Netflix UK & Ireland and Amazon Prime Video US also weighed in on the matter.
