TBS Comedy Miracle Workers To Adopt Anthology Story Telling In Season 2

Posted by at 3:03 pm on May 15, 2019

The plan for TBS comedy series Miracle Workers is to take on the one-season-one-story approach pioneered by franchises like Ryan Murphy’s “American Horror Story starting in Season 2.

Creator Simon Rich said in an interview earlier this year, “As we were casting, one of the main things that Dan and I were looking for, in addition to how good they had a specific part, is how versatile were they as performers, period, because we need people who can really stretch.”

Rich’s inspiration for building a comedic anthology series goes back to “Mel Brooks and Monty Python and the Coen brothers — a lot of my heroes have made multiple projects that share cast and share a tone but have brand new stories. I didn’t think TBS would let us get away with that either but they did. It’s amazing.”

What defines a Miracle Workers story, though, now that the premise no longer literally involves characters who work miracles? “I would say there’s a sense of existential doom, absurdity, but ultimately, by the end, hope,” Rich previously said. “Each one will definitely be a big, big swing. If we get to do another one.”

No premiere date has been set for Miracle Workers Season 2, but according to Turner, the first season reached a multiplatform audience of 26.4 million viewers across all TBS platforms.
