Looks like NBC will be given a proper sendoff to The Good Place.
It’s been reported that the network is given an extra-long 90-minute block dedicated to the end of the award-winning show. The series finale will include an extended episode; as well as a post-show special featuring the full cast and hosted by Seth Meyers. The series finale beginning Thursday, January 30 at 8:30/7:30c.
From the creator and executive producer Mike Schur, The Good Place stars Ted Danson, Kristen Bell, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, Manny Jacinto, and D’Arcy Carden. The critically beloved series focuses on Eleanor Shellstrop (Bell) who wakes up in the afterlife and confronts her past through a gracious guide, Michael (Danson). However, Eleanor did not live a righteous life, so if this is heaven; she realizes she was sent there by mistake. Dramedy ensues, infused with questions of ethics, as Eleanor and her fellow afterlife residents need a plan, particularly as things take an unexpected twist.
This is definitely going to be an eventful night. The show gets an event that so well deserves to have; but also I do love seeing a post-after show special. I can’t wait. The closest to compare was when Parks and Recreation had their series finale.
