'God Friended Me' Fans Are Praying for a Season 2

By Mustafa Gatollari

When God Friended Me debuted, I remember thinking to myself, "Wait, is this premise of the show exactly what I think it is?" And the answer is yes: it's a show about someone who gets a friend request from God. Like any good show, there's a level of conflict deeply rooted in familial relations.

The show's star, Brandon Micheal Hall, plays a podcaster who's the son of a reverend. He's also an outspoken atheist.

So, one can understand where the bulk of the show's drama lies. You have a young man who's all like, "God doesn't exist." And then God comes out of nowhere and is like, "Yes I do exist, and I have a Facebook account. Yes I understand that only old people use Facebook, but in my defense I'm like the oldest thing ever of all time. The Alpha and Omega and such."

While the show's receiving some love from audiences on Rotten Tomatoes, critics have described the show as just-above-middling. And when a new series with an entirely new premise, especially one as "hokey" as the idea of God reaching out to someone on social media, then it's fair to wonder whether or not God Friended Me is going to be renewed or extended.

Will God Friended Me have a Season 2?
