Will there be a second season of the apocalyptic workplace comedy series? Read on to find out more about God’s Favorite Idiot Season 2.
Almost every one of us, at some point in our lives, has thought about the possibility of being a superhero and saving our family and friends from evil forces, but what if one day, you wake up and god decides to choose you as their messenger and now, you have to complete the task of saving the world! Umm, that’s not what we really dreamt about, right?
But that’s exactly what happens with a tech support employee, Clark when he suddenly develops the ability to glow in the series, God’s Favorite Idiot. For the unversed, the series follows the life of Clark, who gets struck by lightning from an angelic cloud. He develops the ability to glow and is later informed by an angel that he is God’s messenger now and must prevent the apocalypse from happening.
The series premiered on June 15, 2022, on Netflix and is created by and starring Ben Falcone. The series, with its unique concept and powerful storytelling, has managed to gather a good number of fans who are wondering if the series will renew for another season or not.
Here’s everything you need to know about God’s Favorite Idiot Season 2.
Will there be a Season 2 of God’s Favorite Idiot?
As of June 16, 2022, Netflix has not renewed or canceled the series. But that’s not surprising as the first season has just premiered and it’ll take some time to renew the series as several factors have to be considered like the ratings, reviews, and performance. Netflix has ordered 16 episodes of the show and eight episodes have already been released on June 15.
So, the remaining 8 episodes need to be filmed then they will be released. But it seems that these episodes will be marketed as Part 2 of season 1, rather than the second season. So, the mystery remains unsolved, whether Netflix decides to renew the series or not.
God’s Favorite Idiot Season 2 Release Date
The next eight episodes are still to be filmed. Deadline states that it will happen “at a later date”, which means the series can get back into production by the end of 2022 and we can get a release date sometime in late spring or early summer 2023.

God’s Favorite Idiot Season 2 Plot
At the end of Season 1, God tells Clark that he and Amily need to run as God might need him again in the future and she can’t let him die. Clark finds his friends and tells them the new plan, which is for him and Amily to escape. They leave, but after some time, Satan arrives and starts creating destruction in the hospital. Clark and Amily are stopped by Thorp on their way and after some time of persuasion and understanding, Thorp lets them go. Back inside, Wendy and Mohsin kiss as they fear death and Frisbee takes a stand against Satan.
Wendy makes Satan understand that she needs to return to hell and take over to rise to the top. The convincing works and Satan leaves them. Tom tries to stop the horsemen from chasing Clark and Amily with a fake sword, which was not effective but it does give the couple time to get into their car and leave. The pair drives away and share a romantic moment, with Amily finally telling Clark that she loves him. Clark wonders if there is the possibility of everything being okay from now on, what he doesn’t know is a plague of locusts was following them. In God’s Favorite Idiot Season 2, we expect to see if God has some other plans for Clark and what problems he will face in the completion of those plans.
