NBC has ordered a fourth season of the Thursday night comedy, The Good Place. The network has not yet announced the scope of the newest season. However, the previous season have consisted of thirteen episodes each and fans can possibly expect the same in the new season. The renewal comes at a bit of surprise considering creator Mike Schur designed the show for limited serialized runs.
Tracey Pakosta and Lisa Katz of NBC Entertainment have celebrated the renewal with a public release. Katz and Pakosta said, “Congratulations to Mike Schur and an exceptional cast and crew, all of whom collaborate to create a thoughtful, mind-bending and hysterical series unlike anything else on television.” The two later added, “We can’t wait to see what unexpected stories the new season will bring.”
The NBC comedy is coming off of a fantastic third season run. Earlier this year, the series received the TCA Award for Outstanding Achievement in Comedy. Ted Danson also received a Critics’ Choice Award and an Emmy nomination for his role in the series. Most recently, the series was nominated for a Humanitas Prize Award.
The new season will likely return in 2019. In the meantime, viewers can catch up on the first three seasons on Netflix or Hulu.
