Before the final episodes of The Good Place's third season had even aired, NBC renewed the show for a fourth run. Below, we've rounded up what we know so far about season four of everyone's favorite philosophy show.

THE GOOD PLACE WILL COME TO AN END AFTER THIS SEASON.

In a thoughtful note, addressed to the "Residents of #TheGoodPlace Neighborhood 12358W," showrunner Michael Schur explained why the show was concluding. "After The Good Place was picked up for season two, the writing staff and I began to map out, as best we could, the trajectory of the show," it read. "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... As such the upcoming fourth season will be our last."


So what will happen in The Good Place's final season? "We're going full tilt until the end," Schur told the Hollywood Reporter. "Everybody at the end of the day is happy that we're going to end it the way we started it—at breakneck speed, with a lot of crazy, wild twists and turns."

THE FOURTH SEASON WILL BE A LITTLE LONGER THAN THE OTHERS.

Whereas previous seasons had 12 or 13 episodes, The Good Place's final run will span 14—and one of those will be an hour-long season finale, Schur revealed to the Hollywood Reporter.

WHILE WE WAIT FOR THE NEW SEASON TO ROLL OUT, THERE ARE A LOT OF WAYS TO CATCH UP ON EXISTING THE GOOD PLACE CONTENT.

The Good Place airs on NBC, but there are several ways to access past seasons. The first two seasons are available to stream on Netflix, and several episodes from the current run are on offer from Hulu. NBC's own online platform also has season three, with the more recent episodes open to all, and the earlier ones available to anyone with a cable login.

While The Good Place isn't free for Amazon Prime members, Prime video does give users the option to purchase previous episodes or seasons.
