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 hour-long premiere, THE GOOD PLACE airs Thursdays at 8:30pm.

On Thursday, September 27, 2018 from 8-9pm ET/PT, NBC premiered the third season of THE GOOD PLACE. In the one-hour season opener, "Everything Is Bonzer!," Michael intervenes in the near-death accidents of Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani and Jason on Earth, in hopes that a second chance at life allows them to become better versions of themselves.

The fourth and final season of THE GOOD PLACE premiered Thursday, September 26, 2019 at 9pm ET/PT on NBC. In the season opener, "A Girl From Arizona," with Eleanor assuming the role of the architect, the group adapts to the challenges facing them when four test subjects inhabit a new neighborhood under their supervision.
On Thursday, January 30, 2020 from 8:30-10pm ET/PT, NBC premiered "Whenever You're Ready," the one-hour forking series finale of THE GOOD PLACE, immediately followed by a post-show special hosted by Seth Meyers. The official description of the finale? "Various conversations occur, between various groups of people."
