Great news for anyone that watched the pilot and hoping it would be picked up for a series.. It has!


I thought the first season was very interesting, but the second one just couldn't capture my attention. Dropped it.


I love this show. It's a must see


Can’t believe they cancelled this show. Lots of loose ends that were never tied up in the last episode.


Hardly made it to the third episode and then gave up. Some good actors (Perlman, Delany) try to make the best of it, but the very poor and inconsistent writing does not give them a lot to work with. Add some really bad casting decisions (Morris,McLaughlin) and you get a really disappointing show. Interesting and intriguing premise ruined by the execution.


Amazon Cancels Hand Of God The Amazon drama will end after Season 2. September 15, 2016 It is being reported that Amazon had decided not to continue with Hand of God after its forthcoming second season. The psychological drama, which stars Ron Perlman and Dana Delany, got its start on the streaming service back in 2014 with a single pilot episode that eventually resulted in a series order after positive viewer response. The full first season followed in 2015 with a 10-episode run that drew decidedly mixed reviews from both audiences and critics. A second season was announced in December and is expected to premiere sometime in 2017.


Loved it. Really intense, interesting story line


Found this really hard going, couldn't get beyond the second episode


Really good show. Hope they have a way to continue it


Decent show so far! Ron Perlman is good as per normal.
