“Miracle Workers”, Starring Daniel Radcliffe, Is Returning for a Second Season
Last year, Potterheads everywhere were buzzing with the news that Daniel Radcliffe would be starring in the new anthology comedy Miracle Workers. While most fans already thought of Radcliffe as an angel, seeing him actually portraying one on television was a dream come true. Fans of the show can rejoice, because TBS has ordered a second season.
Those who watched the series will be excited to hear that the new season will be somewhat different from the first one – it will see Radcliffe and fellow actors Steve Buscemi (Fargo), Geraldine Viswanathan (Blockers), and Karan Soni’s (Deadpool) characters move from heaven into the depths of medieval times. The good news was announced on May 15 via the show’s Twitter handle.

For those who haven’t watched the show yet, the first season basically sees Radcliffe portraying the character of an angel who has what is considered a pretty low-level job – he has to answer humanity’s prayers. God, played by Buscemi, is sick and tired of humanity and just wants to blow them all up. The angels all make it their mission to prevent this from happening.
Of course, everyone’s wondering what will be happening in Season 2. In short, the storyline will focus on a group of villagers who are trying to stay positive during dark and difficult times of inequality and fake news. The four main characters from Season 1 will be wading their way through this new age, with the focus on family and friendship, all while trying not to get murdered.
Simon Rich, who is the mastermind behind the Broadway Video series, says that he is very excited to tell this new story with the same brilliant cast. Tom Hinkle, who is the EVP Original Programming at TBS, is just as excited, saying that the story is truly unique.
Simon’s absurdist and comedic tales of human existence are truly unique. He pitched us what he wants to explore in the dark ages with these brilliant actors, and it’s weird and smart and perfect.
We can’t wait for the second season to start. No air date has been announced just yet, but we’ll be keeping our ears open and our eyes peeled and let you know as soon as we find out.
