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.

I can't believe the many negative comments here. I thought the first season was really funny and put some of the religious principles nicely on their head. Maybe this is why some people just can't laugh about it.
The second season "Miracle Workers: Dark Ages", however, was simply over-th-top hilarious. It's almost the funniest show on TV right now. My wife and I can't wait for every next episode. The writing is actually quite ingenious.
And by the way, I have no problem of the show changing the setting and topic with every new season. I actually love the concept. It allows for a fresh reset and if it keeps being good writing, there are probably many periods in history or layers in society that Simon Rich can pick apart and in his great humorous way show us the absurdity in things we used to consider normal.
We really, really hope for a 3rd season - and I want to be surprised what topic it will be.

I really like this show and am happy it's being brought back.
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.

I found this show amusing and enjoyable. However, I CANNOT STAND when networks say limited series and then order another. Same thing happened with Under The Dome and was unwatchable by the end.

I like how they advertised a Limited Series and then you could tell they were going to try for season 2. If we change everything but keep the cast, is it not just a new series? If we keep the cast but change everything else, is it a new season? The same problem the Emmys have with American Horror Story.
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.

The first season was mildly amusing but the end was a letdown.
I can't say the change of setting makes me want to watch another season.

Interesting.. for the US market I figured with only 7 episodes that was it. And given how the 7 ended.. well it made sense. I am surprised Buscemi doesn't have better things on his plate. But.. maybe it's a labor of love... anyway.. it was decent.. they need to kill the 1:30 opening, it's superfluous.-- wish producers in this "streaming age" would realize long openings are annoying. Anything more than a 10 or 15 second title card is unnecessary. Use that minute to edit the actual show better and include an extra scene or something. Other than that it's a decent distraction for 21 minutes.

The only reason this show was picked up again was to not embarrass the multi-million dollar cast. It certainly was not picked up on its quality. Lasted 20 min and it was off my screen.

I like Daniel Radcliffe + Steve Buscemi -- but this show was just really dumb. A total waste of their talents. Couldn't make it past the second episode, if I can remember....(maybe it is repressed). Ha ha! Happy Viewing!
