“This role is proof that we’ve come so far,” Peppermint said to Entertainment Weekly. “A transgender pastor is not something you’d see being written or cast even five years ago. This season, they are raising the bar both in front and behind the camera. You ain’t ready, y’all!”

The second season of God Friended Me airs Sept. 29 at 8:30 p.m. ET after Sunday Night Football. Peppermint’s Oct. 6 arc airs at 8 p.m. ET.
