'The Good Place' season 4: Release date, plot, cast, trailer, news and everything else about NBC's celestial comedy
The story of ‘The Good Place’ begins with four humans who find themselves in the show’s version of heaven – or so they think.
What do you get when you mix heaven, ethics and Michael Schur’s sense of humor? Why, ‘The Good Place,’ of course. Over the course of last three seasons, the NBC show has managed to pose some of the most philosophical conundrums and also forced us to think about them, all the while making us laugh whole-heartedly.
The series, which begins in the afterlife of a group of humans, is about what makes good deeds good and bad deeds bad. How important is making a choice and how many negative points can you rack up by bragging? While the show does not claim to answer all these questions, it will at least make you look at these questions from a perspective you have never looked at it from before.
The fourth and final season of 'The Good Place' is set to premiere on September 26, 2019.
The story of ‘The Good Place’ begins with four humans who find themselves in the show’s version of heaven – or so they think. Two of them know they are not supposed to be there and implement methods to fit in, while the other two despite knowing they belong in heaven, fail to find the eternal happiness they were promised.
During the course of the series, they discover that they are actually in the bad place and that they are part of an experiment that a Bad Place architect is conducting. The architect aka demon hits the reset button a few too many times and eventually gives up, siding with the humans to help them get better, and eventually revolutionizing how the dead are treated in the afterlife.
The talented cast of the series is led by Kristen Bell, who portrays Eleanor Shellstrop, a selfish and self-serving human, who with the help of her friends in the afterlife and her "soulmate" become a better human being. William Jackson Harper portrays Chidi Anagonye, Eleanor's soulmate, and her ethical teacher. He was sent to the bad place because of his inability to choose, thereby annoying everyone around him.
Tahani Al-Jamil, a wealthy English philanthropist, is played by Jameela Jamil. Tahani is disliked for her inclination to name drop and her condescending tone of speaking. Manny Jacinto portrays Jason Mendoza, an amateur DJ and drug dealer who pretends to be a monk and decides to take a vow of silence when he figured out that he is in the Good Place, and just like Eleanor, realized that he is not supposed to be there.
The cast also includes Ted Danson as Michael, a Bad Place architect who pretends to be a Good Place architect. Despite being a demon, he is amused by the mundane aspects of human life.
Michael Schur, the producer, writer, and actor, beloved for his work on shows such as ‘The Office’ and ‘Parks and Recreation’ is the brains behind ‘The Good Place,’ which he co-created with Greg Daniels.
