The God Friended Me season 1 finale is going to be coming to CBS in the spring, and it shouldn’t come as a shock that the writers are planning something big. All signs point to them having some big ideas for how to close out this season … but also how to set the stage for the future of the series at the same time.

Speaking in a new interview with TVLine, the show’s co-creator Steve Lilien made it clear that they have a clear plan for how to end this season, one that they’ve had established even prior to the official word came in about a season 2:
“…We have something really exciting planned for the end of Season 1. So the most exciting thing was to actually be able to show the fallout and the progression in Season 2 and not leave it like that.”
Lilien promised that they have something planned for the finale that will help to shake things up a bit moving into the second season, which we do think is important since you don’t want every single season to feel the same. This is a story about slow growth and change in many ways, but you can’t leave things at a standstill. You have to find a way to push and move them forward. If you don’t, then the story is stagnant and interest soon fades.
Lilien also does describe in this interview some of the movement that you are going to see through the remainder of the first season:
Adam Goldberg is coming on to play Simon Hayes, and that’s a huge arc for us. Along with Parminder Nagra, who plays Pria — she’ll be coming back on the show — and also Henry Chase, [we’ll explore] these three characters and their involvement in the God account. We’ll come to a resolution and give some answers at the end of the season.
Of course, we don’t think that we’re going to get a cut-and-dry answer as to who actually runs the God Account. There’s just no incentive to tie together this mystery right now when there is still so much story to tell in this show. Why close things off right now when you don’t have to? There’s a benefit here for the writers to take their time; also, we don’t think the show is really about the who in the mystery. It’s more about the mystery.
