The dramedy will end its run later this month.
April 14, 2020
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.

Interesting that so many say they didn’t like this show and how great it’s ending. If you don’t like it you can always NOT WATCH IT! I loved the show, good acting, good stories and feel-good TV. Sad it’s being canceled.

I watch shows that have a resolution after each episode."God Friended Me" was an exception despite that the creator of the account would only be revealed during the series finale. Well, the series finale is near. Here's my prediction: Miles has a step-brother of which no one knew existed. He is the creator of the God account. What's your prediction?

Always sad to see tv shows go but I personally think it's sad when they do. The haters of the given show come out and dump on it here. I don't like some shows myself but I don't believe in cheering there ends. They had there fans and I can respect that

I have to say I'm surprised the show was cancelled. This is one of a very few shows where I actually heard people talk about putting it on their viewing schedules even in the second season. I thought the cast on this show was exceptional.
That said, the show was starting to get wrapped up in the tangle of its own plotlines. The quest to find the owner of the God account just kept going round and round with no real resolution and became a waste of time without any point. There was also the pressure to find an emotional surprise ending to each episode that was starting to make the stories hard to swallow even as entertainment. On some of them you felt manipulated.

Why do people read and bash shows?? They are for entertainment. It's sad people have to be so mean! I'm sure I prob hate some of the shows others on here like, but I wouldn't wish them canceled. Everyone has a right to their opinion. I love this show because it was dramatic, funny,compassionate and good won out in the end and I also like some reality shows--- like Survivor and the Voice, and many "cop" shows. It's TV people!! Some of you are trying to force your opinion on others like you think the show --- how is that different? I'm so happy to see that many of you really liked the show. Thx for intelligent opinions and not whiney political crap!! I so hate for it to end. Loved the cast!

Ok. So then make a show about helping people and leave out the God or religious part. That way everyone can enjoy.

I kinda liked the show. I, like the fictional Miles Finer, am an atheist and don't believe in God or any god. I believe men created religion as a way of oppressing the illiterate and others of lower classes. That aside, I actually didn't mind the whole God thing in the show and actually got a kick out of the whole social media aspect of it. It was pretty original (for once) and kinda brought the whole concept of religion to a younger audience.
All the religion stuff aside though, at the root of the show was a story of a group of people getting together to help people. This world needs more of that regardless of their motivation. Miles and the group really genuinely in their heart of hearts wanted to help people. That is what the show was really all about. They had some really genuinely good stories too, I actually welled up at the one starring Judd Hirsch.
