It's certainly one of the more unique comedies out there, but still, it has found its niche audience. With three successful seasons in the bag, Miracle Workers: End Times is going strong, gearing up for its season four release! The show, which tells the story of two prayer-answering angels, has its loyal fans hooked, counting down the days till it returns to our screens. We've gathered together everything we know about the latest installment and put together a persuasive pitch for everyone else to get binging.
The hilarious series created by Simon Rich takes viewers along the journey of Craig (Daniel Radcliffe) and Eliza (Geraldine Viswanathan). The two angels who work in the prayer-granting sector are out on a mission to save the earth from destruction, granting ridiculous miracles along the way. The hysterical cast includes Steve Buscemi as a disinterested God, Karan Soni as God's servant Sanjay and Jon Bass. As Radcliffe told GQ, "it's one of the weirdest little shows on TV." Considering they're three seasons in, we'd say weird and wonderful is the way to go.
So what's next for the gang? First, expect plenty more quirkiness, with the Weird Al star teasing "big swings in terms of high concept, weird jokes." On December 6, we were blessed with a teaser trailer (see below) and two other teaser clips. As predicted, the new season is set to involve plenty more madness and unpredictable chaos. According to the official synopsis, season 4 is taking the anthology series in a new direction. "In a post-apocalyptic future, a wasteland warrior (Radcliffe) and a ruthless warlord (Viswanathan) face the most dystopian nightmare of all: settling down in the suburbs," it reads. "Together, they navigate the existential horrors of married life and small-town living, all under the dubious guidance of a wealthy junk trader (Buscemi). Also starring Jon Bass as the couple's faithful war dog and Karan Soni as a kill-bot who loves to party."
The Miracle Workers: End Times production and writing crew is a star-studded bunch, including Lorne Michaels, Andrew Singer, Daniel Radcliffe, Dan Mirk, Robert Padnick, and many more. The first episode of the new series will drop on TBS on January 16 with a one-episode-per-week schedule for the next nine weeks. For those looking to catch up before then, the first three seasons are all available to stream on TBS and HBO Max.
