We can tell this is the the good place, because good things are happening. NBC has renewed The Good Place TV show for a fourth season. The Peacock Network broke the season four renewal news on social media. The announcement notes that the episode count is still to be determined, which does make us wonder if The Good Place is being renewed for a fourth and final season, but let’s not jump the gun. Instead, check out the posts, below.
An NBC sitcom, The Good Place stars Kristen Bell, Ted Danson, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, Manny Jacinto, and D’Arcy Carden. Kirby Howell-Baptiste recurs in season three. The series centers on Eleanor Shellstrop (Bell) who, after dying, mistakenly ends up in The Good Place — instead of The Bad Place — where she truly belongs. Along with fellow lost souls, indecisive philosopher Chidi Anagonye (Harper), shallow socialite Tahani Al-Jamil (Jamil), and blundering Blake Bortles super-fan, Jason Mendoza (Jacinto), Eleanor tries to find the good person within. The third season finds “Team Cockroach” back on earth, taking a second chance at leading better lives.
