The stop in the production of NBC’s three years hit show in 2019 had not still settled well with a lot of fans and viewers, as there are still controversies about what went wrong during the production that could have possibly led to a cancellation of everyone’s favorite show or a sudden conclusion of the show.
Is the Good Place Season 5 Canceled Or Concluded?
In June 2019, Michael Schur, the creator of this series, made a statement to the press regarding the release of a fifth series.
“Given the idea we wanted to explore, and the pace at which we wanted to present those ideas, I began to feel like four seasons- just over 50 episodes was the right life span.” This statement confirmed that it’s very unlikely for season 5 to be back on screen.
As many viewers would have loved another season, ending the fourth season seems more realistic, although new twists and turns in the movie would have been welcomed. The last season (season 4) undoubtedly answered all the series’ questions, and a new season wouldn’t have had enough plot left to have as many episodes as the former. “As such, the upcoming fourth season will be our last.”
This indicates that The Good Place was never canceled by NBC but painfully concluded by the creators.
A statement was later released by the executives of NBC, Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta. ”Since day one, The Good Place has been a seminal show for us and one that hits all the NBC touchpoints- incredibly smart, funny, inventive, and emotional.”
This only proves that NBC had not expected a quick conclusion to the series, just like the viewers.
The Good Place Season 5 Plot : What will happen?
This movie features the afterlife of Eleanor Shellstrop. She ends up in a good place after death but feels unsettled about her position there. She doesn’t believe she is worthy of reaching a good place even though she has been constantly assured of deserves it. She crosses paths with fellow lost souls when they discover that they haven’t actually been sent to a good place but a place that seems like it. She teams up with Chidi, Tahani, and Jason to investigate the reason behind this mislocation. They later discover that humans haven’t been given access to a good place for centuries.
They go on a quest together to discover the reason behind this and also rewrite the rules.
The Good Place Season 5 Cast: Who will be in?
If the show makes a comeback, all the original cast are expected to be back on set.
With Kristen Bell as Eleanor Shellstrop, William Jackson Harper as Chidi Anagonye, Jameda Jamil as Tahani Al-Jamil, Manny Jacinto (Top Gun Maverick) as Jason Mendoza, D’Arcy Carden as Janet, and finally Ted Danson (Curb Your Enthusiasm) as Michael.
We can’t imagine the next season without all these stars.
