Everything We Know About 'The Good Place' Season 4 So Far

The Good Place might be one of the best shows on network television, and even though we can’t binge it all at once (at least if you want to stay up to date), each short season still seems to pass by in a flash. Now that Season 3 is over, we can’t help but wonder about The Good Place Season 4 release date.

How long must we wait for The Good Place Season 4 release date? Will we finally get to see the actual Good Place? We’ve scoured the web for answers and we’re sharing them all on this page. (And while you’re here, check out a behind-the-scenes video from the Season 3 finale above.)

Is The Good Place Getting a Season 4?

Yes! The series was renewed in early December for a fourth season. In a statement (via TVLine), NBC co-presidents of scripted programming Tracey Pakosta and Lisa Katz shared their excitement for another season of the show.

“Congratulations to Mike Schur and an exceptional cast and crew, all of whom collaborate to create a thoughtful, mind-bending and hysterical series unlike anything else on television,” they said. “We can’t wait to see what unexpected stories the new season will bring.”

What’s the Release Date for The Good Place Season 4?

We don’t have a set date yet, but if history is any indication you can expect Season 4 to premiere in late September 2019. Season 1 debuted on September 19, 2016, followed by Season 2 on September 20, 2017. Season 3 arrived on September 27, 2019.

At this point, The Good Place is a major show for NBC, meaning it’s sure to retain its coveted Thursday night slot. So in 2019, we’ll probably see Season 4 debut on either September 19 or 26.

Yes, we know, that’s far too long to wait for more Good Place.

Is There a Trailer for The Good Place Season 4

Not yet, and it could be a while. The first official trailer for Season 3 didn’t arrive until early September, not long before the first episode aired. Then again, NBC did air the season’s first two minutes at San Diego Comic-Con in August 2018, so if you’re at the convention this summer you may get a sneak peek at Season 4.

How Many Episodes Will There Be In The Good Place Season 4?

We don’t know for sure, but every season so far has featured 13 episodes. So that’s probably what we can expect from Season 4.

What’s the Plot of The Good Place Season 4?

Season 3 ended with a pretty big cliffhanger. After striking a deal to recreate the initial experiment that kicked off the story, Michael and the gang set out to build a new neighborhood. Unfortunately, Bad Place demon Sean got to pick the new subjects, and he chose four people who were sure to bother our main characters.

That included a blogger who used to spread gossip about Tahani, and worse, Chidi’s ex-girlfriend Simone. In the end, both Simone and Chidi have their memories erased in an attempt to keep this experiment pure. That’s bad news for everyone but most of all Eleanor, who’s happily in love with Chidi.

That’s where Season 3 left us, so The Good Place Season 4 will presumably reveal how this new experiment plays out, though you can expect the plot to race off in unexpected new directions pretty quickly. We’ll also see Eleanor continue to deal with losing Chidi, along with how the looming love triangle between Janet, Jason, and Derek plays out.

Oh, and hopefully The Good Place Season 4 will also confirm my theory that Cheers is actually set in heaven after all the main characters make it into the actual Good Place on the show.
