CBS Greenlights God Friended Me Season 2
GFM fans have a reason to cheer. The freshman comedy drama is getting another season at CBS! Only hours ago, CBS renewed God Friended Me for a second season. God Friended Me Season 2 will likely air sometime around the 2019-2020 season. The show, which follows the adventures of an outspoken atheist and his heavenly mysterious social media friend, received mass critical acclaim during its inaugural season. The show scores the second largest ratings of all recent launches. Moreover, throughout its first season, it has been a distinguished Sunday slot-leader averaging 10 million viewers nationwide.
God Friended Me Season 2 Coming Soon To CBS
The commercial and expository success of God Friended Me have been major factors behind getting God Friended Me renewed.
CBS Entertainment President Kelly Kahl says,
“We’re thrilled with how ‘God Friended Me’ has performed on Sundays. It’s one of the top three new series on television. And it has improved its time period significantly. It continues a long tradition of prestige dramas for CBS on the night”.
God Friended Me Renewed: A New Dawn For Spiritual Shows?
The announcement of a God Friended Me Season 2 has given a new lease of life to spiritual comedies. Despite overwhelming critical applause, NBC’s after-life comedy ‘The Good Place’ has repeatedly become a major Academy snub. Recently too, CBS had to pull the curtains down on a similar show ‘Living Biblically’ owing to low ratings.
Spectacular Performances By God Friended Me Cast
The “God Friended Me” ensemble features Brandon Micheal Hall, Violett Beane, Suraj Sharma, Javicia Leslie and Joe Morton. Greg Berlanti, Steven Lilien, Bryan Wynbrandt, Sarah Schechter and Marcos Siega are the executive producers for Warner Bros. Television.
The cast and crew on the CBS shows have played significant catalysts in getting God Friended Me renewed. Through numerous inspirational and morally awakening tales, they have imbued an ideology of ethical awareness among their viewers. It is the kind of impact only a few other shows like This Is Us can manage to create.
Renewed And Cancelled Shows At CBS
CBS has a long of list of tenderfoot shows whose fate it needs to consider. Recently, the network ordered fresh seasons for dramas “FBI” and “Magnum PI,” and comedy “The Neighborhood.” CBS is yet to announce whether its magnum opus Murphy Brown season would make its second innings. Apart from that, Happy Together and Fam are also still awaiting renewal calls. With CBS being swifter than other networks in ruling the destiny of its original content, it’s only a matter of time before these shows get either renewed or cancelled. A proper premiere date for God Friended Season 2 is also yet to be announced.
