Well, fork. The fantastic and surreal drama of NBC The right place end. The creator of the series, Michael Shur posted on statement on Twitter saying that the fourth season to come would be the last in the series.
In the statement, Shur (who also created Brooklyn 99 and Parks and Recreation) says that after the renewal of the series after his first season, he and the writers of the series have traced the place where they wanted to take the series. "I started to feel that four seasons – a little over 50 episodes – were the good life," he wrote, saying that even though they thought they were going further, they had opted for the end of the series still fresh.
Spoilers coming for the first three seasons.
The show follows a young woman named Eleanor Shellstrop (played by Kristen Bell), who died in an accident and wakes up in what she says is "The Good Place", a utopia beyond for the good people of the world, led by an entity known as Michael (played by Ted Danson). Eleanor realizes that she was sent over there by mistake and she tells her assigned soulmate, Chidi Anagonye (played by William Jackson Harper), that she's really a bad person and that she's a bad person. they are both working to try to make it better. not sent to "the Bad Place".
In fact, Eleanor, Chidi and their friends Jason Mendoza (Manny Jacinto) and Tahani Al-Jamil (Jameela Jamil) are in the right place after all: their so-called utopia is an experimental Bad Place, designed to drive them crazy in a more subtle way , and that Michael is really a demon. They realize this during the first season, only so that Michael clears their memories for the second (in which they realize their situation and escape again), and in the third season, we give them a second chance to try again on Earth. . NBC renewed the series for a fourth and now last season last December, which should be released later this fall.
The show was widely applauded for his comic skills and his exploration of ethics and philosophy. Like Elizabeth Yuko noted for L & # 39; Atlantic back in 2017, "The sitcom offers a thoughtful and humorous overview of a wide range of concepts that are rarely explored in front of a mainstream audience."
It's disappointing not to see more show after this season, but it's been a fun, unique and entertaining drive to the present. If you have not seen the show yet, the first two seasons are available on Netflix (at least in the US) and the third should be available later this year.
