The final season of The Good Place premiered last year and fans will finally be able to watch it on Netflix tonight! I binged the first three seasons during quarantine and I cannot wait to stream the fourth and final season.

Starring Kristen Bell, Ted Danson, and William Jackson Harper, The Good Place is a philosophical comedy series about a group of people who are selected to enter a Heaven-like utopia after their deaths.

The Good Place is impeccably well-written, witty, and heartwarming, and I am so sad that it’s over. If you’re wondering what you’re going to watch after you’ve finally finished the series, then look no further.

Here are five Netflix shows to check out if you like and already miss The Good Place.

1. Grace and Frankie

The Good Place makes me laugh out loud, so if you want to watch something just as funny I would recommend Grace and Frankie.

The series stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as Grace and Frankie, respectively. The two women have never been fond of each other, but have been forced to interact over the years because their husbands are best friends and business partners.

However, the women’s lives are turned upside down when their husbands Robert (Martin Sheen) and Sol (Sam Waterston) announce that they are in love and plan to leave their wives in order to marry. Forced to live with each other, Grace and Frankie learn that friendship can come from the most unexpected places.

2. Schitt’s Creek

Schitt’s Creek is one of the funniest shows I’ve watched in a long time. Between Moira’s vocabulary, Alexis’s wild stories, and David’s comebacks, my face hurts from smiling after I watch an episode. The series chronicles the lives of the uber-wealthy Rose family, who lose all of their money after being defrauded by their business manager.

With no place left to turn, the Roses are forced to relocate to Schitt’s Creek, a little town they once purchased as a joke. Their personalities frequently clash with the town’s more humble residents and the results couldn’t be funnier.

The sixth and final season of the series is coming to Netflix on October 7.

3. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

As reported by IMDbCrazy Ex-Girlfriend stars Rachel Bloom as Rebecca Bunch, a successful attorney at a well-respected law firm in New York. Even though it looks like she has her life together, Rebecca is far from perfect.

When a chance meeting with her ex-boyfriend Josh (Vincent Rodriguez III) gives her a new lease on life, she decides to abandon her life in New York. Rebecca moves to Josh’s hometown of West Covina, California in order to win him back. I have heard nothing but good things about Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

4. Cuckoo

Cuckoo follows the lives of the Thompson family. When they pick their daughter Rachel (Tamla Kari) up at the airport, parents Ken (Greg Davies) and Lorna (Helen Baxendale) learn that Rachel has married Dale “Cuckoo” Ashbrick (Andy Samberg), an unemployed American drifter who loves to do drugs.

5. BoJack Horseman

I binged BoJack Horseman during college, and it quickly became my go-to show to watch when I was stressed. The animated series is hilarious, deeply tragic, and surprisingly poignant. Even though the series is firmly rooted in fantasy, it manages to tackle tough subjects like depression, sexual assault, fame, and alcoholism with frightening realism.

Similar to The Good Place, BoJack Horseman will have you laughing one minute, and pondering the human condition the next.
