    Devastating news but this isn’t really the type of show that can go on and on, if Schur says it’s time to end it, I believe him and I’m sure the final season will be an all time great season of television.

    “After the Good Place was picked up for season 2, 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. And 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.

    “I will forever be grateful to NBC and Universal TV for letting us make “The Good Place”, and for letting it end on OUR OWN schedule. I will also be forever grateful to the creative team, both on-screen and off, for their hard work and dedication to a very weird idea. We ask the question very frequently, ‘what do we owe to each other?’ The answer, for me, is; I owe all of you a whole lot.

    We look forward to a great final season airing this fall.”

    Signed,
    Michael Schur, creator/executive producer of The Good Place

    Sad news, but I admire Schur for his ability to know how he wants to end the show and his decision not to needlessly stretch out the series to get there.

    First stage right now, EW. It’s always the great shows that leave that are the hardest to deal with. Acceptance will come by Sunday night or when the Emmy shortlists come out.

    NBC reaction from Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, Co-Presidents of Scripted Programming: “Since day one, ‘The Good Place’ has been a seminal show for us and one that hits all the NBC touch points – incredibly smart, funny, inventive and emotional. We know the audience will love what Mike Schur and his writers have in store for the final season.”

    If you look halfway through the Hollywood Reporter interview with Schur, he revealed that the 4th season will consist of 14 episodes, including an hour-long series finale.

    This bodes well for their Emmy prospects, as there will not be an opportunity for the Emmys to drop them between their breakthrough and final seasons, like they did with Parks and Recreation and The Americans.  This is more likely to go out right as it really hits with the Emmys, like Breaking Bad.  And when all is said and done, The Good Place will have impressively been nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series for half of its seasons.

    They announced the Dead to Me renewal at its panel and now this, so I fully expect the Russian Doll renewal announcement during tomorrow’s panel.

    I’m upset because that’s one of my all time favourite shows but at least it’ll should have a fantastic ending.

    Mark my words it will go down with the Leftovers as shows that last as long as they should have been and ended fantastic (within exceptions).

    I love this show and I definitely think this is a good decision!!! I hate shows that go on and on for no reason. We will have a proper ending.

    During season 3 you’de see this couldn’t last much longer so I’m happy he’s really seeing a bigger picture as how this show should run.

    I’ll miss it and hope the Emmys could give a win to Ted Danson and D’arcy Carden whom are dynamite in the show. Besides a nomination to Kristen Bell who’s having a breakthrough and amazing opportunity to push her career from this

    Seems likely to be a TCA nominee for best comedy 4/4 seasons.
