New Netflix shows: 5. The Good Place
Created By: Michael Schur

Release Date: Saturday, Sept. 26
We should have known that after The Good Place ended in January 2020, the year was all downhill from there. Not to place the blame totally on The Good Place, but what in the Jeremy Bearimy is going on? There’s no proving that if the beloved comedy series hadn’t ended, things wouldn’t have gone straight to the Bad Place, but there’s also no proof of the contrary. At any rate, this month, we can return to the Good Place, both literally and figuratively, when the final season streams on Netflix.
The Good Place first premiered in 2016 and became an instant sensation when the first season finale pulled the rug out from all of us. Truly, it’s one of the greatest twists in television history. Of course, the series continued to take clever turns in its preceding three seasons but opted to complete the story on its own terms. Season 4 finds the gang rallying together to save the afterlife, taking hits up until the heart-wrenching series finale.
Rewatch the final season of the Emmy-nominated modern masterpiece or start the complete series from the very beginning when The Good Place season 4 hits Netflix on Sept. 26.
