Bad news guys – we officially know we’re in the Bad Place because it’s just been announced that The Good Place is ending after its next season.
The Heaven/Hell comedy, starring Kristen Bell, Ted Danson and Jameela Jamil, will be closing its doors for good as Team Cockroach finally figures out their place in the afterlife.
Show creator Mike Schur made the announcement on Twitter today, saying that the much-loved series had simply run to the end of its story.
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.’
‘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,’ he then confirmed.
Thanking the network and production team for helping creat their ‘work and dedication to a very weird idea’, he added: ‘We ask the question very frequently, on this show, what do we owe to each other?
‘The answer, for me, is: I owe all of you a whole lot.’
Jameela Jamil, who plays uptight socialite Tahani on the series, was one of the first cast members to share the news as well, writing: ‘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.’
At least they will leave us with a series of neverending memes, the memory of Ted Danson flossing, and one hilarious forking way of looking at philosophy.
The Good Place returns later this year on NBC in the US and Netflix in the UK.
