Bad news for fans, NBC’s The Good Place is near to an end. Show creator/managing producer Michael Shur stated a message on Twitter saying that the upcoming season 4 would be the last show’s.
“After The Good Place was picked up for season two, the writing staff and I began to map out, as best we could, the trajectory of the show.
“Given the ideas we wanted to explore, and the pace at which we wanted to present those ideas, I began to feel like four seasons – just over 50 episodes – was the right lifespan.
“At times over the past few years we’ve been tempted to go beyond four seasons, but mostly because making this show is a rare, creatively fulfilling joy, and at the end of the day, we don’t want to tread water just because the water is so warm and pleasant.
“As such, the upcoming fourth season will be our last.”

“I know we do fart jokes but this is a serious show,” actor Ted Danson is also quoted as saying. “Any padding or over-telling a really great story would be a shame.”
“We all learned together,” Janet actress D’Arcy Carden added. “My reaction was, ‘Cool, okay, yeah’, and 24 hours later it was, ‘I think I’m depressed!’
“I have so much respect for Mike and the writers and I have always been a fan of shows that go out on their own terms.”
Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta also tweeted on The Good Place to end after season 4 in a statement, adding: “Since day one, The Good Place has been a seminal show for us and one that hits all the NBC touch points – incredibly smart, funny, inventive and emotional.
“We know the audience will love what Mike Schur and his writers have in store for the final season.”
It’s already decided that season 4 will focus on “power dynamics,” However, they disclosed that Kristen Bell’s character Eleanor is based on bisexual.
Asking of Kristen Bell, don’t ask her how the show ends… because she’s ignored.
It’s a bummer that we aren’t going to see more of the show after this season, but it’s been a fun, unique, and entertaining ride thus far. If you haven’t seen the show yet, the first two seasons are available on Netflix (at least in the US) and the third should be available sometime later this year.
