Hallelujah! By the grace of all that is good and holy, TBS has renewed Miracle Workers for a third season. Presented as a comedic anthology series, the third season will see stars Daniel Radcliffe, Steve Buscemi, Geraldine Viswanathan, and Karan Soni reprising their roles from previous seasons, only this time the group will be heading to the American Old West.
Serving as showrunners for season three are Dan Mirk and Robert Padnick. Set in the year 1844, the new season will follow an idealistic small-town preacher (Radcliffe) who teams up with a wanted outlaw (Buscemi) and a liberated prairie wife (Viswanathan) to lead a wagon train west on the Oregon Trail across an American landscape which, much like today, is fraught with both promise and peril.
“Miracle Workers is a perfect example of the fun, escapist humor that we take pride in delivering to our viewers,” said Sam Linsky and Adrienne O’Riain, co-heads of scripted original programming for TBS, TNT, and truTV. “We can’t wait to see how this incredibly dynamic cast and talented group of storytellers hilariously rewrite 19th-century history.”
“Getting to tell an entirely new story with this ludicrously talented cast each season is a dream come true,” said Mirk and Padnick. “We could not be happier that TBS has given us the reins on this unique and special show.”
Man, I really need to give this show a watch and see what it’s all about. I experienced Radcliffe’s GUNS AKIMBO this past weekend and am kind of riding a high inspired by the Harry Potter actor right now. If you’ve yet to check it out, I can’t recommend it enough. It also stars Samara Weaving as a badass bounty hunter who’s out for revenge against a group of internet terrorists that have people hunting one another for clicks. The whole movie is really over-the-top and Radcliffe delivers a hell of a performance as a tech-savvy nobody who’s had guns drilled into his hands. As I said, it’s wild, and you should totally check it out.
