The new comedy will return for Season 2.
May 15, 2019
TBS announced today that Miracle Workers has been picked up for a second season. The good news follows a seven-episode freshman run for the comedy that garnered decent ratings and generally-positive reviews.
With Season 1 being based on Simon Rich's novel "What in God's Name", the show will shift to tell a brand new story in Season 2. Taking on an anthology format, the four main cast members will return in new roles but this time in a medieval setting. They will play a group of villagers navigating life in time of inequality and misinformation.
Look for Season 2 of Miracle Workers in early-to-mid 2020.
#MiracleWorkers is coming back for an all new season! JUST WAIT until you hear about █████ and the █████. OH and ███████! We still can't even believe it ourselves #WarnerMediaUpfront @TBSNetwork pic.twitter.com/ACxQR9kAYg— Miracle Workers (@miracletbs) May 15, 2019
Steve Buscemi's lazy, dumb god character is fantastic. As someone who spent a childhood in Catholic schooling, I like the writers' interpretation of the afterlife.
The rest of the cast did a really great job with some really absurd premises. Was it a little goofy? Yes. But that's kind of the point; it's a farce. I'm looking forward to the next season.
Hopefully they have a story to keep the plot going or no story to hold the plot down. The first season didn't have enough really to go anywhere, but too much to be random.
I can't say the change of setting makes me want to watch another season.
