Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Greg Berlanti and series creators Steven Lilien & Bryan Wynbrandt, GOD FRIENDED ME is a one-hour dramedy series about an outspoken atheist whose life is turned upside down when he receives a friend request on social media from "God" and unwittingly becomes an agent of change in the lives and destinies of others around him. Miles Finer is intelligent, hopeful and optimistic, but he doesn't believe in God. This puts him at odds with his father, Reverend Arthur Finer, a beloved preacher at Harlem's Trinity Church for 25 years who is stung by his son's strong rejection of his faith. Miles feels he's found his purpose in life hosting a podcast where he's free to speak his mind, but that changes when he receives the ultimate friend request. After repeated pokes by "God," Miles' curiosity takes over, and he accepts the request and follows the signs to Cara Bloom, an online journalist suffering from writer's block. Brought together by the "God" account, the two find themselves investigating "God's" friend suggestions and inadvertently helping others in need. Joining them on their journey are Miles's supportive sister, Ali, a doctoral psych student by day and bartender by night, and his best friend, Rakesh, a sometime hacker who helps Miles and Cara research the enigmatic account. Miles is set on getting to the bottom of what he believes is an elaborate hoax, but in the meantime he'll play along and, in the process, change his life forever.
On Sunday, April 14, 2019 at 8pm ET/PT, CBS premiered the Season 1 finale of GOD FRIENDED ME, with Derek Luke guest starring as Henry Chase and Adam Goldberg returning as Simon Hayes. In the season ender, "Que Sera Sera," Miles, Cara and Rakesh finally come face to face with the elusive Henry Chase when the God Account sends Miles Simon Hayes' name. Additional guest stars: Jennifer Regan (Sharon Katz), Jessica Cherniak (Erica Katz), Jessica Lu (Woman), and Derek Luke (Henry Chase).

Three months earlier -- on Tuesday, January 29 -- CBS renewed GOD FRIENDED ME for a second season.
