TBS Renews 'Miracle Workers' for Season 3

TBS has renewed its original anthology comedy series Miracle Workers for a third season, it was announced today. Moreover, Dan Mirk and Robert Padnick have been tapped to serve as co-showrunners after serving as writers on the first two seasons.

Daniel Radcliffe, Steve Buscemi, Geraldine Viswanathan and Karan Soni will return as stars for the new installment.

Set in the year 1844, the third 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.

Simon Rich created the comedic anthology. He executive produces with Radcliffe, Buscemi, Mirk, Padnick, Lorne Michaels, Andrew Singer and Katy Jenson. Broadway Video produces.

"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," added Mirk and Padnick. "We could not be happier that TBS has given us the reins on this unique and special show."
