The Good Place’s final season will begin airing in September (Picture: NBC)NBC has confirmed when The Good Place’s final season four will be hitting our screens and we’re still not ready to say goodbye.
Brand new episodes of Kristen Bell’s comedy will drop every Thursday with the first installment landing our way Thursday 26 September at 9pm in the US.
Show creator Mike Schur announced earlier this month that the heaven/hell sitcom would be coming to an end after the forthcoming installment, breaking the news on social media.
He wrote: ‘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.
‘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.’
Mike continued: ‘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.
‘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.
Jameela Jamil, who plays socialite Tahani on the series, addressed the heartbreaking news on Twitter, adding: ‘YOU HEARD CORRECT.
‘This next season is the FINAL season of @nbcthegoodplace because Mike Schur is the classiest motherforkingshirtball ever and wanted to leave you at the right time in the right way.
‘We love you and we hope you love our goodbye.’
The Good Place’s last season will consist of 14 episodes and the final installment will have a run-time of one-hour.
‘It is a full, series-ending, wrap-up kind of a thing,’ Mike told TVLine. ‘So it will have one gigantic story that will serve as the end of the series for everybody.’
The Good Place is available to stream on Netflix.
