CBS has opted against a third season of Sunday night inspirational drama “God Friended Me.” The series, from Warner Bros. TV and CBS Television Studios, stars Brandon Micheal Hall as an outspoken atheist who receives a social-media friend request from “God” and unwittingly becomes an agent of change for the people around him. The cast also includes Violett Beane, Suraj Sharma, Javicia Leslie, Joe Morton and Erica Gimpel.
“We’re extremely proud of the unique concept and uplifting stories ‘God Friended Me’ has told over the past two seasons,” CBS and Warner Bros. TV said Tuesday in a statement. “We thank the brilliant cast, writers, production team and crew for a show that stirred thoughtful conversation about faith, life and happiness, and made viewers feel good at the end of each episode. The creative team behind the show has one last ‘friend suggestion’ in mind, as well as an ending we hope brings a satisfying conclusion to Miles’ journey in search of the God Account.”
“God Friended Me” will conclude with a two back-to-back episodes on April 26. A total of 42 episodes were produced.
