Benedict Cumberbatch is joining the cast of Good Omens as Satan, showrunner Neil Gaiman announced last Wednesday during the Television Critics Association winter press tour.

The cast includes David Tennant, Michael Sheen, Frances McDormand, Jon Hamm, Nick Offerman, and Miranda Richardson. The show will be streamed on Amazon starting May 31.

Gaiman adapted the show himself from his 1990 novel about a demon and an angel who band together in the face of the impending apocalypse.
