It looks like God Friended Me will be sticking around for a full season, as CBS has ordered more episodes towards its freshman run. The exact size of the top-up is not confirmed, but reports peg it at around seven, which would bring its total to 20.

The hour-long series premiered in late September and is off to a solid start. Through its first three episodes, ratings have improved its time slot performance compared to a year ago. Early reviews have been overall mixed, though lean towards the positive.

God Friended Me follows New York podcast host Miles Finer, who is an outspoken atheist. When he randomly receives a friend request from God on Facebook, it starts him down the path of becoming an agent of change in the lives and destinies of people around him.
