NBC's "The Good Place" will conclude following its upcoming 2019-20 season 4. Michael Schur, creator of "The Good Place," stated "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. As such, the upcoming fourth season will be our last.
"Since day one, 'The Good Place' has been a seminal show for us and one that hits all the NBC touch points - incredibly smart, funny, inventive and emotional," said Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, Co-Presidents of Scripted Programming, NBC Entertainment. "We know the audience will love what Mike Schur and his writers have in store for the final season."
Since its launch in 2016, "The Good Place" has won the AFI Award for Program of the Year, TCA Award for Program of the Year, a Humanitas Award and a Peabody Award. In addition, the series has been nominated for a Golden Globe Award, Writers Guild Award, Producers Guild Award and Critics' Choice Award.
The New York Times Magazine says The Good Place is "the best sitcom on TV". TVLine also called it the "#1 comedy on television".
