The Good Place is an American fantasy comedy television series created by Michael Schur. The series premiered on September 19, 2016, on NBC.
The series focuses on Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell), 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. However, she realizes that she was sent there by mistake and must hide her morally imperfect behavior while trying to become a better and more ethical person. William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, and Manny Jacinto co-star as other residents of “the Good Place”, together with D’Arcy Carden as Janet, an artificial being who knows all the information in the universe and can produce any item out of thin air, abilities which she uses to help the inhabitants.
The Good Place has received critical acclaim, particularly for its writing, acting, originality, setting, and tone. In addition, the first season’s twist ending and the show’s exploration and creative use of ethics and philosophy have been positively received. The recognition earned the series a Peabody Award in 2019. The series has won two Hugo Awards for Best Dramatic Presentation, Short Form for the episodes “The Trolley Problem” and “Janet(s)”.
In December 2018, NBC renewed the series for a fourth and final season, which premiered on September 26, 2019, to consist of 14 episodes.
After her death, Eleanor Shellstrop is welcomed to her afterlife in “the Good Place” by Michael, an immortal architect who has built a specifically designed afterlife community that strives to accommodate everyone’s specific tastes. Michael introduces Eleanor to Janet, an artificial intelligence that serves as a guide. She is also introduced to her soulmate, a university ethics professor named Chidi Anagonye. Eleanor, who led a dissolute and amoral life, tells Chidi that she must have been sent to the Good Place by accident, and he agrees to teach Eleanor to become a better person to earn her place for real. Eleanor’s neighbor is Tahani Al-Jamil, a wealthy socialite, whose soulmate is introduced as a silent Buddhist monk named Jianyu Li; but Jianyu reveals that he is actually a dimwitted DJ from Florida named Jason Mendoza, who also believes he has been sent to the Good Place by mistake. As Chidi continues to teach Eleanor and then Jason ethics lessons, chaotic events occur in the neighborhood, apparently due to Eleanor’s unauthorized presence. Eleanor reveals to the entire neighborhood that she’s not supposed to be in the Good Place, but Michael offers to try to find a way for both Eleanor and Jason to remain. When those efforts prove fruitless, an authority figure named Shawn rules that Eleanor and Jason must be sent to the Bad Place. In the season finale’s twist ending, Eleanor deduces that she, Chidi, Tahani and Jason have actually been in the Bad Place all along. Michael reveals his demonic plot to have the four of them torture each other emotionally and psychologically for eternity. He then announces his intent to wipe their memories and separate the four to try again.
Michael repeatedly attempts the experiment in human torture again with variations of the neighborhood, but the group figures out the truth each time. After 802 fruitless attempts, the other demons stage a coup against Michael and threaten to inform Shawn about his repeated failures if he doesn’t implement their ideas instead. Michael decides to team up with the four humans and promises to get them all into the real Good Place; they agree after Michael agrees to begin learning about ethics himself. They escape with Michael’s help through the Bad Place, and they attempt to get to the Good Place by appealing to the Judge. The Judge gives each a test to see if the four humans have improved enough to enter the Good Place, which everyone except Eleanor fails (although she tells the others she failed as well). Michael appeals, and the Judge agrees to send them all back to Earth with no memories of the afterlife and with Michael intervening to prevent their deaths, to give them a chance to show true moral development in ignorance of the potential consequences. After a false start, Michael intervenes again and points Eleanor in the direction of Chidi, reigniting her passion for ethics.
Realizing that the group has been falling back into their old patterns, Michael repeatedly interferes without the Judge’s knowledge to manipulate them to find each other. They all end up in Sydney and become participants in a research study run by Chidi and his colleague Simone about near-death experiences and ethical decision making. After a year of monitoring and interfering in the lives of the group, Michael and Janet are discovered and forced to admit the truth about the group’s experiences in the afterlife. This renders them incapable of earning admission to the Good Place; instead, Eleanor persuades the others to spend the remainder of their time left on Earth helping other people to get into the Good Place. Michael and Janet track down Doug Forcett, the only human to have ever come close to figuring out the truth about the afterlife; they find that his obsession with trying to live in such a way as to gain admission to the Good Place is making his existence miserable. Shawn travels to Earth to apprehend Michael, and taunts him that no one, including Forcett, will make it to the Good Place. His demons force the group to escape back into the afterlife. When Michael and Janet learn that it has been 521 years since anyone has entered the real Good Place, Janet convinces Michael that it is up to him to fix the flawed system. An appeal to the real Good Place’s governing committee fails due to bureaucratic red tape. Michael then tries to convince the Judge that because good deeds have more and more unintended bad consequences, it’s impossible to earn enough points to get into the Good Place. To test Chidi’s theory that humans can improve if external factors are removed, a new simulated Good Place neighborhood is built which will be populated with four new deceased human test subjects. When Shawn threatens Michael with consequences if the experiment fails, Michael has a nervous breakdown and asks Eleanor to pose as the architect. As two of the subjects arrive, the group realizes Shawn has deliberately selected people who will be difficult for them to work with, in an effort to compromise the integrity of the experiment, essentially ensuring its failure. With Simone being one of the new subjects, Chidi is concerned that he will not be able to prevent his memories of his relationship with her from interfering with the experiment; so he asks Michael to erase his memory to the moment of his death in the original timeline.
The fourth and final season of the fantasy comedy television series The Good Place, created by Michael Schur, was renewed by NBC on December 4, 2018. The season premiered on September 26, 2019, and will consist of 14 episodes. The season is produced by Fremulon, 3 Arts Entertainment, and Universal Television.
The series focuses on Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell), a deceased young woman who wakes up in the afterlife and is welcomed by Michael (Ted Danson) to “the Good Place” in reward for her righteous life; however, she eventually discovers that Michael’s “Good Place” is a hoax, and she is actually in the “Bad Place”, to be psychologically and emotionally tortured by her fellow afterlife residents. In the fourth season, Eleanor and Michael are given the opportunity to prove that the system for assigning humans to the Good Place or Bad Place after death is fundamentally flawed, by attempting to demonstrate that humans in a simulated Good Place can show moral development. One of the experiment subjects is Eleanor’s boyfriend, Chidi (William Jackson Harper), who has volunteered to have his memory erased to preserve the integrity of the experiment. Jameela Jamil, Manny Jacinto, and D’Arcy Carden also star as Eleanor and Michael’s friends and collaborators in the experiment. Each of the episodes is listed as “Chapter (xx)” following the opening title card.
