The Good Place has officially been renewed for a fourth season.
The Emmy-award nominated NBC series was created by Michael Schur (Parks and Recreation). The series centers around Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell), a woman who wakes up in the afterlife and meets Michael (Ted Danson), a supernatural being. It’s difficult to say more about the series without spoiling any of the massive plot twists, but it’s earned almost exclusively positive reviews across all three seasons.
Deadline reports that the series has officially been renewed by NBC. While there isn’t any confirmation about the episode count for the season, the season length is expected to be 13 episodes, like the previous three seasons of the show.
“Congratulations to Mike Schur and an exceptional cast and crew, all of whom collaborate to create a thoughtful, mind-bending and hysterical series unlike anything else on television,” reads a statement from Tracey Pakosta and Lisa Katz, co-presidents of scripted programming at NBC. “We can’t wait to see what unexpected stories the new season will bring.”
The Good Place, created by Michael Schur, stars Kristen Bell, Ted Danson, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, Manny Jacinto, D’Arcy Carden, Tiya Sircar, Marc Evan Jackson and Maya Rudolph. The series airs on Thursday nights.
