The Good Place boss reveals the plan for season 3

Warning: This article contains spoilers for the season 2 finale of The Good Place.

For a comedy, The Good Place contains more twists and turns than Game of Thrones, Westworld and Heroes combined. Seriously, it’s been dramatic.

Now, a few months after the second season has wrapped up, creator Michael Schur has started speaking to outlets about his plans for the next batch of episodes, and clarifies the latest episode for those who are still a bit confused.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, Schur was asked if Eleanor (Kristen Bell) and company were really brought back to life, or whether it was just another simulation.

“Normally I don’t like to just flatly state what’s going on,” he said, “but here I don’t see the benefit of people experiencing ambiguity: The four of them are straight-up back on Earth, in a new timeline where they didn’t die.

“It seemed like a natural move to send them back to a time before they made that progress, and to use the idea of nearly dying to test their ability to improve.”

Schur was also asked about time moving differently in the afterlife compared to Earth, and his reply was to “Enjoy episode five”. What a tease!

The latest tease comes shortly after star Jameela Jamil, the British former T4 host who plays Tahani Al-Jamil, said she was told she was “too ethnic,” “too old” and “too fat” to make it in the US.

The Good Place airs on NBC in the US, while Netflix streams it in the UK. Season three is expected later in the year.
