Well, fork! NBC's offbeat comedy about life after death, The Good Place will end after season 4. Show runner, Michael Schur announced via Twitter on the shows account. Since it's arrival, the show has had a huge cult following and has gained popularity through streaming sites such as Hulu and Netflix. I for one have been obsessively watching the show and it has become one of my favorites. The show stars Kristen Bell, Ted Danson among others. The show also has an impressive 8.2 on IMDB as well as a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes.
You can check out the statement from Michael Schur below:
“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. 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.
“I will be forever grateful to NBC and Universal TV for letting us make ‘The Good Place,’ and for letting us end it on our own schedule. I will also be forever grateful to the creative team, both on-screen and off, for their hard work and dedication to a very weird idea. We ask the question very frequently, on this show, what do we owe to each other? The answer, for me, is: I owe all of you a whole lot.
“We look forward to a great final season airing this fall.
So bittersweet! I'm glad the show is ending on a high note though!
