The new season's inaugural episode “A Magnificent Day for an Exorcism” is available on the Luminary channel of Apple Podcasts and the Luminary website. The coming episodes, which feature recordings from Yellow Springs, Ohio and live audience sessions in London and Amsterdam while Chappelle was on tour with Chris Rock, will drop in early January and continue through spring 2023.

The second season of The Midnight Miracle also follows the release of the first vinyl-edition of the podcast, on a limited edition blue-on-blue swirl record. The Midnight Miracle originally began recording in 2020 when Chappelle hosted his Summer Camp shows in Yellow Springs.
