The new comedy will return for Season 2.
January 30, 2017
Fans of The Good Place can breathe a little easier today, as NBC has given an early renewal to the freshman series. The good news comes just weeks after the half-hour comedy concluded its 13-episode debut run, which ended with a twist of a cliffhanger that almost demanded the series return to continue the story.
The Good Place comes from creator Michael Schur, who also co-created and wrote for Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Parks and Recreation, among others. The series stars Kirsten Bell as a woman of questionable character who mistakenly ends up in an ideal afterlife akin to heaven. Ted Danson also stars as the architect who created the seemingly-utopian community.
Premiering last fall as part of the network's fall lineup, The Good Place was a modest performer over the course of its run. While many viewers have questioned why the show wasn't picked up for additional first-season episodes, NBC had always stated that it was meant for shorter-length seasons. And like Season 1, Season 2 of The Good Place will also consist of 13 episodes.
Why? These short season shows are a marketing ploy by the Networks which require us watch a show twice bc it's been so long between seasons we don't remember what we watched the 1st time. They're making twice the advertising $$, at half the cost. It's nothing more than corporate greed, and I simply refuse to support them in their greedy money grab.
Too many other good shows to watch on the cable channels. Try the show Curse of Oak Island....the Lagina brothers, and company, are about to find the huge treasure buried on Oak Island. Now, THAT'S exciting AND a good show.
So, fork The Good Place, and their manipulation of their viewers.
@Rosie I will happily take 13 episodes of this HTGAWM to accommodate film actors like Kristen Bell and Viola Davis who want to continue to make quality television AND make movies. It's a win-win for all of us. If you forget what happens, on-demand that shirt.
