The Good Place to end with 90-minute series finale, including Meyers-hosted post-show
NBC also announced that Brooklyn Nine-Nine will return for season 7 on Feb. 6.
The Good Place will say good-bye for eternity on Jan. 30.
And that farewell will be considerable. NBC announced on Friday that it will send off the Mike Schur-created afterlife comedy with an extended series finale as well as a Seth Meyers-hosted post-show with the cast, which includes Ted Danson, Kristen Bell, Jameela Jamil, William Jackson Harper, D’Arcy Carden, and Manny Jacinto. The festivities start at 8:30 p.m. and will last for 90 minutes.
It was revealed earlier this year that the Emmy nominated critical darling would wrap up its loopy, ethics-infused adventure after its fourth season. What to possibly expect in that final chapter of this expectation-defying series? “It’s completion of our journeys in a way that I find satisfying, hopeful, and goes beyond our conventional understanding of storytelling,” Harper told EW this summer, while Bell hinted, “You will finally see what we owe to each other.”
