Amazon has said the series will take place before the events of The Fellowship of the Ring, the first of the LOTR novels.

Benedict Cumberbatch To Play Satan In Amazon’s ‘Good Omens’ – TCA

Described as equal parts humor and horror, fantasy and drama, Good Omens takes place in the modern day 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 that Aziraphale, a somewhat fussy angel, and Crowley, a fast-living demon, are not looking forward to the coming war, and someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist. – Peter White, Deadline Hollywood » http://bit.ly/2GMR66f
