The Good Place creator Mike Schur announced earlier this month that the NBC series would end after its upcoming fourth season. 

Admitting that he and the writers felt that four seasons ‘was the right lifespan’ for the show, he claimed they didn’t want to ‘tread water’ just for the sake of it and thus decided to end the series on their own terms.

Prior to the announcement, cast members D’Arcy Carden, Manny Jacinto, Ted Danson, William Jackson Harper and Jameela Jamil backed the show at a For Your Consideration event in North Hollywood on Friday.  

In a statement posted to Instagram, Schur explained to fans why they would be ending the show, claiming it was always expected to end around season four.

‘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,’ he said. 

‘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.’ 

The Kristen Bell and Ted Danson-fronted series was a critical hit for the peacock network and a departure from a recent spate of cynical, anti-hero driven comedies and dramas.

The Good Place, which premiered in 2016, stars Kristen Bell as Eleanor Shellstrop, a selfish and insecure person who repels anyone who attempts to be her friend.

After she’s unceremoniously killed by a runaway train of grocery store shopping carts, she finds herself in The Good Place, a heaven-like utopia.

The celestial planned community is supervised and designed by Michael (Ted) a seemingly kind but overly meek angelic figure, and his chipper helper Janet (D’Arcy).

The first season ended with a shocking twist, as Eleanor and her fellow Good Place residents (played by Jameela, William and Manny) began to question the reality of their new paradise. 

Though it has its share of broad comedy, the series has also managed to fit in discussions of ethics and metaphysics, a rarity for a prime time series. 

Jameela, who plays the name-dropping socialite Tahani, shared the news of The Good Place’s impending end with a photo that appeared to date from the show’s first season.

‘IT’S TRUE! This next season is our LAST!’ she wrote.

‘I hope you enjoy season 4, Mike and our amazing writers made it with so much love to give you the goodbye you deserve, because they are all classy as hell and know when to leave the damn party. You will always be in our soul squad and we love you! ❤️.’

In December, Schur told The Hollywood Reporter that The Good Place was never intended to be a long-running series.

‘Obviously because of that DNA, where status quos get blown up so frequently, this is not a show that is destined to be on for nine years,’ he explained. 

‘It’s not a 200-episode, Friends kind of a deal. It’s not a hangout show. So, yeah, we’ve given it a lot of thought, and we have a certain plan, which I think you’ll get the sense of in the fairly near future.’

Despite the limited nature of the series, NBC seems happy with the Parks And Recreation co-creator. 

In March, he inked a whopping five-year, nine-figure overall deal with NBC, believed to be worth $25 million annually.

The Good Place managed to have great ratings for its third season, and it was NBC’s highest-ranking comedy among the important 18-49 demographic.

The series was also awarded with a Peabody and received multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominations, a rarity when the award shows are dominated by prestige cable programs.
