The TBS comedy will continue in 2021.

TBS announced today that Miracle Workers has been picked up for a third season. The good news comes seven months following the comedy's sophomore run, which was once again well-received by both audiences and critics. Ratings were solid as well, with it placing in the Top 5 cable comedies of 2020.
The show's anthology format allows it to tell a new story each time out. Season 1 was based on Simon Rich's novel "What in God's Name", while Season 2, subtitled "Dark Ages", featured the same four main cast members in a medieval setting as a group of villagers navigating life in time of inequality and misinformation.
Season 3 of Miracle Workers will be heading out on the Oregon Trail, set in the American West around the mid-1800s with a small-town preacher teaming up with a wanted outlaw and a liberated prairie wife to lead a wagon train west.
Simon Rich, who created the series, will be stepping away from the show going forward. Dan Mirk and Robert Padnick will be taking over as co-showrunners for Season 3, which will return in 2021.
Go West, young show. We’re setting forth on the Oregon Trail! #MiracleWorkers pic.twitter.com/IgtQrHbDyq— Miracle Workers (@miracletbs) October 22, 2020
But the show has Steve Buscemi. Nuff said.
