The second installment of “Miracle Workers” is coming early next year, but Buscemi and Radcliffe aren’t playing God and angel anymore — this season is set in medieval times.
Called “Miracle Workers: Dark Ages,” the new season is set to debut Jan. 28 on TBS.
In the teaser video, Radcliffe plays the son of a king who likes to feed ducks in his spare time. It’s unclear yet exactly Buscemi’s new character is, but he seems to have been demoted to a far lower post than God. You can watch the teaser above.
Created by Simon Rich and executive produced by Lorne Michaels, “Miracle Workers: Dark Ages” tells a medieval story about friendship, family and trying not to be murdered.
Here is the official logline:
“Miracle Workers: Dark Ages” centers upon a group of medieval villagers trying to stay positive in an age of extreme income inequality, poor healthcare, and widespread ignorance. This 10-episode installment will feature Daniel Radcliffe, Steve Buscemi, Geraldine Viswanathan, Karan Soni, Jon Bass, and Lolly Adefope returning in new roles and facing new challenges.
The first season of “Miracle Workers” was based on Rich’s book, “What in God’s Name,” and followed Buscemi as God and CEO of Heaven Inc., the grossly-mishandled corporation in the sky that puts angels to work making the world go round. But the fate of humanity is thrown into jeopardy when God, whilst going through a “midlife crisis,” decides to pull the plug on the whole operation.
“Miracle Workers: Dark Ages” is executive produced by Michaels’ Broadway Video with Andrew Singer and Katy Jenson executive producing alongside Rich, Radcliffe and Buscemi.
“Miracle Workers: Dark Ages” premieres Jan. 28 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on TBS.
