If you’re like me, you discovered The Good Place with some very enthusiastic but cryptic recommendations. What, at first, seemed like a routine network comedy turned into one of the most beloved show on TV. But all things must end, and The Good Place‘s number is up. It has been renewed for a fourth season, but it will be its last.
In an exclusive with The Hollywood Reporter, its creator Mike Schur revealed that the show would soon be ending. While he recognizes how beloved the show is, he is also happy that he and the cast are able to end the show on their own schedule and when they feel the story is done. Schur also created Brooklyn 99 and Park and Recreations, two other big hits for NBC.
Schur also released a statement on Twitter for fans of the show:
If you haven’t seen the show yet, The Good Place is a philosophical and ethical mediation on humanity, goodness, and how we should best live our lives…which features a jealous and emotionally neglected socialite, the embodiment of Florida Man, a continuously indecisive ethics professor, a Twitter account made flesh, a demon who loves bow-ties and a Janet. If that doesn’t intrigue you, then nothing will.
So far, two of actors on the show, Jameela Jamil and Manny Jacinto have tweeted their reactions to the news:
