In its first season, God Friended Me was CBS’ seventh-highest-rated scripted series. Will viewers stick with it in season two or, will they move on to something new? Will God Friended Me be cancelled or renewed for season three on CBS? Stay tuned. *Status Update Below.
God Friended Me stars Brandon Micheal Hall, Violett Beane, Joe Morton, Suraj Sharma, Javicia Leslie, and Erica Gimpel, with Adam Goldberg and Jessica Lu recurring. Set in New York City, the series revolves around a thoughtful and outspoken podcaster named Miles (Hall). Miles is an atheist and that puts him at odds with his father (Morton), a former reverend. Miles’ life is turned upside down when he receives a friend request on social media from a user named “God”. He eventually accepts the request and starts digging into his new friend’s account, convinced it’s a hoax. He partners with journalist Cara Bloom (Beane) and gets additional aide from his sister Ali (Leslie) and his hacker pal, Rakesh (Sharma). Miles is convinced that the “God” account is an elaborate hoax and is devoted to uncovering the truth. In the meantime, he’s playing along and, in the process, seeing his life changed forever.

4/15 update: God Friended Me has been cancelled.
I was thrilled to find a show with a nice storyline and strong characters. I looked forward to watching God Friended Me
Loved God Friended Me. It was truly a beautiful ending. But wish it was coming on for a third (or more) season. We always recorded it and watched it later in the week.
How sad CBS cannot see a good, aspiring show staring them right in the face. But that is CBS for you. Not like it used to be.
Did any of you read Jeremiah 29? Start with verse 7 and read on and think about what we are experiencing today.
There is nothing decent on tv anymore for whole family viewing. This is a great show. A show I can watch without any worries of swearing, violence or sex. The characters are all wonderful. You feel like they are part of your extended family. CBS has cancelled lots of great shows in past, do not cancel this one. In troubled times such as these we need this kind of programming more than ever.
I enjoyed God Friended Me truly miss the program flipping channels to find something to watch
My husband (age 72) and I (age 71) look forward to God Friended Me every week! In these trying times, it is the most uplifting show on tv right now! Do not take this one moment of peace away from us! Love the cast; love the twists and turns; the writers are excellent; and it is such a let down to hear it hasn’t been renewed! PLEASE reconsider!!!!
