The End is in Sight for “The Good Place”

The creator of The Good Place has confirmed that the show will be bidding farewell after its upcoming fourth season.

Since premiering in 2016, it has been NBC’s most-watched show via multiple platforms and streaming.

“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,” creator Mike Schur said in a statement.

“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.”

So what can we expect from the final episodes?

“It’s a bullet train it doesn’t slow down for anything,” Schur said.

Let’s hope Eleanor, Chidi, Jason, and Tahani really do end up in the Good Place after all…
