Created by Michael Schur, The Good Place is an American fantasy-comedy television series. It premiered on NBC on 19th September 2016. Comprising of four seasons and 53 episodes, the last episode was aired on 30th January 2020.

The series originally followed the story of Eleanor who after her death found herself in The Good Place which was a heaven-like utopia. The utopia was designed and run by Michael (Ted Danson). Eleanor got the place in the utopia because of her rewarding life which wasn’t exactly the truth.

She encountered Chidi (William Jackson Harper), Tahani (Jameela Jamil), and Jason (Manny Jacinto). However, she kept her unworthiness of getting a heaven-like afterlife a secret. Gradually it was revealed that the foursome was actually in The Bad Life and was to be tortured by Michael.

Will there be no Season 5?

The fourth season was released on Netflix on 26th September 2019 and fans have been waiting for another season ever since. However, a few months later Schur announced that the 4th season will be the last show’s last installment. The series finale was expanded into a 90-minute special. The chapter ‘Whenever You’re Ready’ will presumably be the last part of Eleanor’s journey in the afterlife.

Why won’t there be any Season 5?

The Good Place had steady ratings on NBC. So, many viewers are curious regarding the reason for the series being discontinued.

It has been revealed that it was a purely creative decision. Schur shared that they had planned the ending since Season 2 and everything was mapped out accordingly. So, they felt the series had reached its lifespan as they had already told the story which the writers wanted to tell. Schur added,

“At times over the past few years we’ve been tempted to go beyond four seasons, but mostly because making the 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”

The show was nominated for 12 Emmys in its four years on Tv. But It was up against another big sitcom, Schitt’s Creek which swept away all the categories.
