The Good Place to end after season 4
This final batch of episodes are expected to hit Netflix in September.
The Good Place is to end after its upcoming fourth season, creator Michael Schur has confirmed.
He posted a long statement to the show’s official Twitter account on Saturday explaining that the critically-acclaimed sitcom hadn't been cancelled but had simply finished telling its story.
“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.” he wrote.
“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.”
“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."
The Good Place follows morally bankrupt saleswoman Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell) who, after her sudden death, is accidentally sent to the titular heaven like-utopia and must learn to become a better person if she wants to stay there.
William Jackson Harper, D’Arcy Carden, Manny Jacinto, Ted Danson, Jameela Jamil and Adam Scott also star.
NBC executives Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta released a statement on the show's ending saying “Since day one, The Good Place has been a seminal show for us and one that hits all the NBC touch points – incredibly smart, funny, inventive and emotional.
“We know the audience will love what Mike Schur and his writers have in store for the final season.”
You can stream the first three seasons of The Good Place on Netflix now.
