NBC has renewed critically acclaimed sitcom “The Good Place” for a fourth season. The number of episodes have not been confirmed, but the likelihood is another 13.
“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,” NBC co-presidents of scripted programming Tracey Pakosta and Lisa Katz said in a statement. “We can’t wait to see what unexpected stories the new season will bring.”
Debuting on Sept. 19, 2016, “The Good Place” series focuses on Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell), a woman 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. She realizes that she was sent there by mistake and must hide her morally imperfect behavior and try to become a better, more ethical person.
