It’s the end of the road for the CBS series God Friended Me.

The network has opted to cancel the fantasy dramedy series after two seasons. The show, which was co-created by Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt, is currently in the middle of its sophomore run. Its two-hour Season 2 finale, which will air on April 26th at 8 p.m. ET, will now serve as the series finale. Fortunately for fans, the decision to cancel the series was made earlier on the season, allowing the show’s creative team to craft a proper ending.

“We’re extremely proud of the unique concept and uplifting stories God Friended Me has told over the past two seasons,” CBS and series producer Warner Bros. TV said in a joint statement. “We thank the brilliant cast, writers, production team and crew for a show that stirred thoughtful conversation about faith, life and happiness, and made viewers feel good at the end of each episode. The creative team behind the show has one last ‘friend suggestion’ in mind, as well as an ending we hope brings a satisfying conclusion to Miles’ (Brandon Micheal Hall) journey in search of the God Account.”

Despite the promise of a proper ending, fans are upset about the show’s cancellation, with many of them hoping that the series will be saved by another network or streaming service.

Some fans, meanwhile, appear to have accepted the fate of the series. They, however, admitted that they’re going to miss the show, which has already become a part of their Sunday routine.

CBS didn’t give an explanation behind the show’s cancellation. But like many series suffering a sophomore slump, God Friended Me’s number of viewers has gone down.

Debuted in September 2018, God Friended Me follows the story of an outspoken atheist named Miles Finer (Brandon Michael Hall) whose life is completely changed after receiving a friend request from “God”. As he attempts to track down the person in charge of the God account, Miles starts to change the lives of everyone in his path. The series also stars Violett Beane, Suraj Sharma, Javicia Leslie, and Joe Morton.
