At the end of season 3 of The Good Place, Michael and the squad proved that humans were unfairly judged, making the Good Place unattainable. In a deal made with The Judge (Maya Rudolph), the Bad Place’s head demon was allowed to pick random humans for a test of ethics in a new neighborhood. As Michael couldn’t be trusted to be objective, Eleanor was chosen as the new architect-erasing Chidi’s memory of their love in the process (to not hinder the outcomes).
The final season of such a comedic show that has heart, soul and a passionate crew is bittersweet. The Good Place is consistently one of the smartest, best written shows on network television. This final season will be one of magic, ethics and a multitude of Janets. Check out the season 4 promo below:
