The show's title card

The Good Place is an American fantasy comedy television series created by Michael Schur. The series premiered on September 19, 2016 on NBC.[1] The series focuses on Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell), a recently deceased young woman who wakes up in the afterlife and is sent by Michael (Ted Danson) to "The Good Place", a heaven-like utopia he designed, in reward for her righteous life. However, she quickly realizes that she was sent there by mistake, and must hide her morally imperfect behavior, and try to be a better person. William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, and Manny Jacinto co-star as other residents of the Good Place, together with D'Arcy Carden as an artificial being helping the inhabitants. Each episode is listed as "Chapter (xx)" following the opening title sequence.

As of January 24, 2019, 39 episodes of The Good Place have aired, concluding the third season. The series has been renewed for a fourth and final season, set to premiere on September 26, 2019.[2][3][4]
