‘The Good Place’ to say goodbye with extended finale, Seth Meyers aftershow
“The Good Place” will end with a super-sized episode and a post-show special hosted by Seth Meyers, featuring the entire cast.
The afterlife comedy centers on self-absorbed Eleanor Shellstrop, played by Kristen Bell (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”, “Gossip Girl”). When Eleanor dies, she wakes up in the afterlife, where Michael the Architect, played by Ted Danson (“Cheers”, “Curb Your Enthusiasm”) tells her she is in the Good Place, a selective, heavenly afterlife for good people.
Eleanor realizes she has been sent there by mistake, but hoping to stay, tries to hide her past and bad behavior from other Good Place residents, while trying to become a better person.
But the Good Place is not all that it seems. In the show’s fourth and final season, Eleanor and her allies try to prove to The Judge (Maya Rudolph) that the point system which decides who gets into the Good Place is flawed, given that no human has been admitted for centuries.
William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, Manny Jacinto and D’Arcy Carden also star.
“At the beginning, I pitched [the show as] what it means to be a good person, and at the end I think I would describe this as a show that makes the argument that we all [ought to] try harder than we are,” show creator Michael Schur (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”, “Parks and Recreation”) said. “As long as you’re trying, you’re on the right path.” RGA/JB
