Ted Danson, Kristen Bell, Jameela Jamil, D’Arcy Carden, Manny Jacinto and William Jackson Harper give you a first look at the fourth and final season of The Good Place.
NBC’s The Good Place follows Eleanor Shellstrop, Chidi Anagonye, Tahani Al-Jamil, and Jason Mendoza as they seek redemption in the afterlife, aided by Good Place Architect, Michael, and a human-esque repository for all of the knowledge in the universe, Janet.
The series focuses on Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell), who wakes up in the afterlife and is introduced by Michael (Ted Danson) to “the Good Place”, a highly selective Heaven-like utopia he designed, as a reward for her righteous life. However, she realizes that she was sent there by mistake and must hide her morally imperfect behavior while trying to become a better and more ethical person. William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, and Manny Jacinto co-star as other residents of “the Good Place”, together with D’Arcy Carden as Janet, an artificial being who knows all the information in the universe and can produce any item out of thin air, abilities which she uses to help the inhabitants.
The Good Place has received critical acclaim, particularly for its writing, acting, originality, setting, and tone. In addition, the first season’s twist ending and the show’s exploration and creative use of ethics and philosophy have been positively received. The recognition earned the series a Peabody Award in 2019. The series has won two Hugo Awards for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form for the episodes “The Trolley Problem” and “Janet(s)”.
In December 2018, NBC renewed the series for a fourth and final season, which premiered on September 26, 2019, to consist of 14 episodes.
