NBC Renews ‘The Good Place’ for Season Two

Thirteen New Episodes Ordered

NBC has handed an early second season renewal to “The Good Place,” which concluded season one last Thursday. Thirteen new episodes of the Kristen Bell/Ted Danson sitcom have been ordered. The announcement makes creator Mike Schur’s comedy the second freshman series to get an early green light this season from NBC, following drama “This Is Us,” which was given a two season renewal earlier this month.

“Mike Schur has always had one of the most fertile and imaginative minds in comedy, but what he brought us with the first season of “The Good Place” was just extraordinary,”
NBC president Jennifer Salke said in a statement that accompanied the renewal announcement. “We absolutely can’t wait to see where these characters go, literally, in season two. A big thank you to Mike, the writers and cast for delivering a series in which we all take such enormous pride.”
