Did you know that the hit TV series Supernatural has a shared connection with Good Omens? It's true! Neil Gaiman, the showrunner and original co-author of Good Omens, recently addressed this interesting connection. Both shows are centered around Christian mythology and feature familiar names like Michael, Gabriel, and Metatron.

One of the most noticeable connections between the shows is the demonic character named Crowley. In Good Omens, he is played by David Tennant, while in Supernatural, he is portrayed by Mark Sheppard. The name Crowley already had some demonic implications due to the famous British occult figure Aleister Crowley, but Gaiman revealed that

Supernatural creator Eric Kripke used the original Good Omens book as inspiration for his own show's demon. Kripke even included nods to Good Omens and Gaiman's other work because he was a huge fan of the book.

But the best reference to Good Omens in Supernatural comes in season 5. In an episode called "I Believe the Children Are Our Future," Sam and Dean Winchester investigate rumors about fairy tales and urban legends coming to life. To their surprise, they discover that a boy named Jesse has the power to warp reality.

Although he is not the literal son of Lucifer in the show, Kripke based the character on Adam from the original Good Omens book. This character similarity is just one of the many parallels that can be seen between the two shows.

With Gaiman aware of Kripke's love for his work, fans are hopeful that the upcoming season of Good Omens will provide an opportunity for a reciprocal nod to Supernatural. Maybe Gaiman will introduce his own version of the beloved Supernatural character Castiel or even have Crowley and Aziraphale cross paths with a pair of brothers named Sam and Dean. The possibilities are endless!

It's fascinating to see how these two shows have found common ground in their shared love of mythology and storytelling. And for fans of both series, it adds an extra layer of enjoyment and connection between the worlds they've come to love.
