Plot Synopsis

THE GOOD PLACE is a comedy series that follows Eleanor Shellstrop, an ordinary woman who enters the afterlife, and thanks to some kind of error, is sent to the Good Place instead of the Bad Place, which is definitely where she belongs. While hiding in plain sight from Michael, the wise architect of the Good Place (who doesn't know he's made a mistake), she's determined to shed her old way of living and discover the awesome (or at least the pretty good) person within. Helping Eleanor navigate her new surroundings is Chidi, her kind, open-hearted soul mate who sees the good in people but finds himself facing quite a dilemma; her seemingly perfect new neighbors, Tahani and Jianyu; and Janet, the go-to source for any and all information in the Good Place. NBC premieres THE GOOD PLACE on Monday, September 19, 2016 from 10-11pm ET/PT, showing back-to-back episodes three days before moving to regular timeslot on Thursdays at 8:30pm. Season 2 of THE GOOD PLACE premiered on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 from 10-11pm ET/PT on NBC. In this one-hour season opener, "Everything Is Great," having had their memories erased by ambitious master architect Michael, Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani, and Jason again settle into the Good Place, unaware of what has previously transpired...except that Eleanor discovers the one clue she had left for herself and attempts to piece things together. After the hourlong premiere, THE GOOD PLACE airs Thursdays at 8:30pm.
On Tuesday, July 17, 2018 the Shout Factory released Season 2 of THE GOOD PLACE on DVD with all 13 episodes plus bonus features including extended episodes and new audio commentaries with cast and crew. After Michael's disastrous attempt to torture Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani and Jason for eternity goes belly-up, Eleanor and the gang are rebooted and Michael has revised his plan to keep his torture subjects separate. Only now, Michael's soul is on the line, as his boss, Shawn, won't allow another attempt! Own all the Goodness now! (Click the red "Buy DVDs" button on this page.)
