Initially skeptical, Miles decides to follow these suggestions to help people. During his second such request, he meets and befriends Cara, a struggling magazine writer.”
“His first request had been a doctor who lost a patient and was on the verge of losing his girlfriend. Together with Cara and his hacker friend Rakesh (Sharma), Miles tries to find out who is behind the “God” account.

Update April 2020
We got really big and depressing news for the fans of the show. Averaging under a 0.7 demo rating and 6.2 million all out watchers (in Live+Same Day numbers, through April 12), God Friended Me is down 27% and 20% from its season 1 ratings. What’s more, among the 18 dramatizations CBS has publicized this TV season, it positions eighth in the demo and No. 10 overall. But perhaps the biggest issue was it enjoys the smallest gain via Live+7 DVR playback — just 23% — of any scripted CBS program.

In a joint proclamation sent to TVLine, CBS and Warner Bros. TV stated, They are amazingly glad for the one of a kind idea and elevating stories God Friended Me has told in the course of the last two seasons. We thank the splendid cast, journalists, creation group, and team for a show that mixed keen discussion about confidence, life and joy, and caused watchers to feel great toward the finish of every scene.
The innovative group behind the show has one final ‘companion proposal’ at the top of the priority list, just as a consummation we trust carries a wonderful end to Miles’ excursion looking for the God Account.
