The TBS comedy will continue in 2021.
October 22, 2020
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.

I hope that Simon Rich stepping down won't spell doom for the series.

MoeB hasn't realized that Daniel Radcliffe has done a lot of other things since Harry Potter. Maybe check IMDB before you comment on behalf of Daniel Radcliffe

I think Daniel is just glad not to be stuck as the Harry Potter kid. Some kids can't shake off iconic TV/Movie roles, but I think he's doing pretty good. Probably better than most of the others.
But the show has Steve Buscemi. Nuff said.

Interesting idea... same cast completely different show... an anthology sitcom.. m'kay. I liked the first two seasons other than the opening sequence. I don't know why producers waste time with a full minute of two to show a bunch of names the audience already knows or doesn't care about... pure egos stroking. Wish they'd learn, a 10 second title card is all that needed. In these days of binge watching, long openings are real annoying after about 3 episodes.

I liked season 1. Season 2 was fantastic. Great show and cast. Love the 1/2 hour format

Season 1 was pretty nice, but I quickly gave up on season 2, not sure I'll try season 3.
