Miracle Workers is an American anthology comedy television series created by Simon Rich for TBS. It is based in part on Rich's writings, with the first season being based on his 2012 novel What in God's Name, while the short story "Revolution" provided the basis for the second season. The series stars an ensemble cast comprising Daniel Radcliffe, Steve Buscemi, Geraldine Viswanathan, Jon Bass, Karan Soni, Sasha Compère, and Lolly Adefope. The show is a co-production between TBS and FX, whose in-house production company FXP is involved.

Miracle Workers premiered on February 12, 2019, with its seven-episode first season. A second season, subtitled Dark Ages, premiered in January 2020, and a third season, subtitled Oregon Trail, premiered in July 2021. In November 2021, the series was renewed for a fourth season, subtitled End Times, which premiered on July 10, 2023. In November 2023, the series was canceled after four seasons.

Premise

In the first season, Craig is a low-level angel responsible for handling all of humanity's prayers, and Eliza is a recent transfer from the Department of Dirt. Their boss, God, has checked out to focus on his favorite hobbies. To prevent Earth's destruction, Craig and Eliza must achieve their most impossible miracle to date.[2] The season is based on Rich's novel What in God's Name.

The second season is set during the Dark Ages and is based on Rich's short story "Revolution".

In the third season, Reverend Ezekiel Brown leads his dying, famine-stricken town for a better life on the Oregon Trail, taking in notorious outlaw Benny the Teen as trail master.

In the fourth season, taking place in a postnuclear apocalyptic world, Road Warrior Sid and Warlord Freya Exaltada, along with their War Dog Scraps, leave behind the ravaging Wasteland for a more normal life in Boomtown.
