The second season has arrived for Miracle Workers, which is now an anthology series!
The first season of the TBS comedy series saw Daniel Radcliffe and Steve Buscemi playing two low-level angels trying to convince God not to destroy humanity. This time, Radcliff, Buscemi, other cast members from the first chapter are placed in the Dark Ages. The plot surrounds Radcliffe’s character, the son of the King, and a group medieval villagers as they deal with the downs and downs of their troubling moment in history.
Monty Python of course comes to mind with the amusing trailer below. There’s a familiar self-awareness and ultra-sarcasm on display as these characters express their constant bemusement, and it’s looking pretty funny. Yep, another one to add to the list.
Miracle Workers: Dark Ages, also starring Geraldine Viswanathan, Karan Soni, Jon Bass, and Lolly Adefope, premieres January 28, 2020 on TBS.
