Ted Danson, Kristen Bell, Jameela Jamil, D’Arcy Carden, Manny Jacinto and William Jackson Harper are today giving you a first look at the The Good Place Season Four in a new video that you can watch below. The fourth and final season will premiere on Thursday, September 26 at 9/8c on NBC.
From creator Michael Schur (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Parks and Recreation and Master of None) comes a unique comedy about what makes a good person. The show follows Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell, House of Lies, Veronica Mars), an ordinary woman who enters the afterlife, and thanks to some kind of error, is sent to the Good Place instead of the Bad Place (which is definitely where she belongs).

“After ‘The Good Place’ was picked up for season two, the writing staff and I began to map out, as best we could, the trajectory of the show,” Schur said when he announced the fourth season would be the last. “Given the ideas we wanted to explore, and the pace at which we wanted to present those ideas, I began to feel like four seasons – just over 50 episodes – was the right lifespan. At times over the past few years we’ve been tempted to go beyond four seasons, but mostly because making this show is a rare, creatively fulfilling joy, and at the end of the day, we don’t want to tread water just because the water is so warm and pleasant. As such, the upcoming fourth season will be our last.”
For the 2018-19 season, The Good Place averaged a 1.6 rating in adults 18-49 and 4.6 million viewers overall in “live plus seven day Nielsens,” and more than doubled to a 3.3 rating in 18-49 after 35 days of linear and projected non-linear viewership. Counting digital viewership only, The Good Place was up season to season by 38% in 18-49.
