Reports are out that CBS has cancelled God Friended Me after two seasons. The sad news comes as the dramedy winds down its sophomore run, with planned back-to-back episodes on April 26 now set to act as its series ender.

The hour-long show premiered in 2018, garnering decent viewership that ranked it as one of the top new broadcast shows that season despite mixed reviews. But falling ratings in Season 2 could not justify bringing it back for a third outing. Word is, though, that the writers were given advanced notice of the move, which enabled them to craft a fitting end to the story.

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.
