A comedy set in the offices of Heaven Inc. When God plans to destroy the Earth, two low-level angels must convince their boss to save humanity. They bet him they can pull off their most impossible miracle yet: help two humans fall in love.
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.
