[ # ] Oh fork, this is major bullshirt, The Good Place is ending this season
June 8th, 2019 under Kristen Bell, Ted Danson Mary Steenburgen

There are hundreds of television shows being produced these days and The Good Place is one of the best of the bunch. However, as they say, “All good things must come to an end.” Sadly, that is the case for this comedy.

Michael Shur, who created this show, explained his decision to say goodbye the good and bad place.

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 the work and decimation 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.

I thought that watching Ted Danson flossing would bring a smile to my face after this news, but it did not work. I don’t want this show to end. Can’t they take something else like Grey’s Anatomy or NCIS?
