Netflix’s God’s Favorite Idiot ending explained

We can always count on Netflix to deliver the goods when it comes to binge-able TV series, and they’ve done so again with their latest comedy release: God’s favorite idiot.

The series stars the incredible Melissa McCarthy as the eccentric office worker Amily, alongside her real-life husband (!!) Ben Falcone, who plays Amily’s seemingly boring colleague Clark. However, everything changes when Clark discovers he has been unexpectedly chosen as God’s new messenger, and the pair embark on a mission to spread the word of God in a battle against evil.

Of course, the comedy show is very offbeat, and there’s a lot to see when the season finale comes around. So if you need a summary, here’s the end of God’s favorite idiottexplained.

The ending of God’s Favorite Idiot explained

The important things first, God’s favorite idiot ends with various cliffhangers, which is frustrating but bodes well for a second season. According to reports from diversity, the series was originally scheduled to run for 16 episodes before production was paused and the series was cut to eight. A second series of the originally planned additional eight episodes is apparently due to be filmed at a later date, so let’s hope more are on the way!

As for the end of this season, we finally see Clark and Amily flee the city. Their attempt to spread God’s message was met with much hatred, and God then commands the couple to leave to stay safe. However, this does not mean that Clark’s mission is over; God gives Clark his next destination (although we can’t figure out what it is), and episode eight ends with Clark and Amily driving away together. The moment is also a happy ending for the couple on a personal level as Amily Clark admits she loves him too. Finally!

OK, but there are bigger problems. The war with Lucifer is still ongoing, and towards the end of the series it seems like Lucifer might actually win, jeopardizing the future of humanity. In episode eight, however, it looks like Lucifer’s dominance may be weakening – with the four horsemen of the apocalypse possibly wavering in their allegiance. Furthermore, Satan seems to be threatening Lucifer’s power as well, as she arguably wants the throne for herself while Tom the Baptist is still recruiting more disciples – so the battle is far from over.

Mohsin, Wendy, and Gene are also spared by Satan after Wendy convinces Satan that she is too powerful to spend the final battle killing people on Earth. So, hey, at least that’s a plus.

There are still many unanswered questions for a possible second season: Will Clark and Amily return to town to rejoin the other characters? Or will we follow them to their new destination, leaving their friends and colleagues behind? And most importantly, who will win the battle between good and evil in the end?
