Eleanor Shellstrop and her friends will continue to bring the laughs for another year. 

NBC has handed out an early fourth season renewal to critically acclaimed comedy, The Good Place, and it will return in 2019. 

There is no word on the episode order as of yet, but given that the first three seasons spanned 13 episodes, it's hard to imagine the network switching things up.

“Congratulations to Mike Schur and an exceptional cast and crew, all of whom collaborate to create a thoughtful, mind-bending and hysterical series unlike anything else on television,” NBC co-presidents of scripted programming Tracey Pakosta and Lisa Katz said in a statement, confirming the renewal. 

“We can’t wait to see what unexpected stories the new season will bring.”

The Good Place has been a critical darling since it debuted back in 2016. Kristen Bell stars as Eleanor who finds herself waking up in the afterlife, and being given the power to make some changes.

However, it quickly emerges that The Good Place is not the safe haven she and her new pals first thought it was, and she embarks on a journey of self-discovery while desperately trying to prove she is not a bad person. 

The series also stars William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, D'Arcy Carden, Manny Jacinto, and Ted Danson.

The Good Place Quotes

So, why do it then? Why choose to be good, every day, if there is no guaranteed reward we can count on, now or in the afterlife? I argue that we choose to be good because of our bonds with other people and our innate desire to treat them with dignity. Simply put, we are not in this alone.

I would say I outdid myself, but I'm always this good. So I simply did myself.
