Amazon Sets Premiere Dates for 'Fleabag,' 'Good Omens' and 'Hanna'

During its presentation at the Television Critics Association's press tour today, Amazon announced the premiere dates for the return of comedy Fleabag, drama Hanna and limited series Good Omens

All 8 episodes of the new drama Hanna will be released on Friday, March 29.

Raised in total seclusion in the remote woods of Eastern Europe, Hanna has spent her entire young life training to fight those who hunt her and her mercenary father, Erik Heller. Her survivalist skills finally are tested when she and Erik are separated upon their discovery by a rogue CIA operative, Marissa Wiegler and her team of agents. Hanna has no choice but to embark on a perilous journey alone across Europe as she seeks to reunite with her father and evade - and ultimately take down - the dangerous agents who target them. Hanna's isolated upbringing offers particularly daunting physical and emotional challenges as she is forced to navigate an ever-deepening conspiracy, one that could be the undoing of both her and her father.

The drama stars Mireille Enos, Joel Kinnaman and Esme Creed-Miles.

David Farr developed the drama. He executive produces with Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements, JoAnn Alfano, Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner and director Sarah Adina Smith. Scott Herbst and Tom Coan serve as co-executive producers. NBCUniversal International Studios, Working Title Television and Tomorrow Studios produce.

The 6-episode second season of comedy Fleabag will be released on Monday, May 17.

The comedy stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Hugh Skinner, Sian Clifford, Brett Gelman, Bill Paterson, Olivia Colman, Jenny Rainsford and Andrew Scott.

Waller-Bridge also created the comedy. The series is a co-production between BBC Three and Amazon.

All six episodes of the limited series Good Omens based on Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's novel will be available on Friday, May 31.

Set in 2019 when the Apocalypse is near and Final Judgment is set to descend upon humanity. The armies of Good and Evil are amassing. Atlantis is rising, and tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel, and a fast-living demon are not actually looking forward to the coming war, and someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist.

The ensemble cast features Michael Sheen, David Tennant, Adria Arjona, Nina Sosanya, Ned Dennehy, Ariyon Bakare, Michael McKean, Jack Whitehall, Miranda Richardson, Sam Taylor Buck, Amma Ris, Ilan Galkoff, Alfie Taylor, Daniel Mays, Sian Brooke, Jon Hamm, Mireille Enos, Lourdes Faberas, Yusuf Gatewood, Anna Maxwell Martin, Derek Jacobi, Nick Offerman, David Morrissey and the voices of Frances McDormand and Benedict Cumberbatch.

Neil Gaiman wrote the adaptation. He executive produces with Caroline Skinner, Chris Sussman, Rob Wilkins, Rob Brown and director Douglas MacKinnon. Amazon Studios, BBC Studios, Narrativia and The Blank Corporation produce.
