The chances of having a fifth season to the comedy show, The Good Place is near to non-existent. The show bid goodbye with the fourth season when it aired in September 2019. The Good Place, created by Michael Schur, was insanely famous for the creative portrayal of ethics and philosophy in the show. The series has been widely acclaimed.
The Good Place first aired in September 2016 and continued for four seasons till January 30, 2020. The show aired on NBC with the last season containing 14 episodes. The fantasy comedy series is produced by David Hyman, Joe Mande, Megan Amram.
The Good Place Season 5: Why Won’t It Release?
It is highly unlikely that we will get a season five. When NBC renewed the show for a fourth season, they clearly stated that it would be the last season and the show would wrap up. Similarly, Schur announced that the fourth would be the last season. Season four was a full conclusion and wrapped up the show nicely. And it seems that the plug was pulled on the show because of the creative decision.
Schur mentioned that he had the ending of the show mapped out since season two. Schur also said that the creative decision to end the show was respected by NBC and after, sharing the story that they wanted to, it seemed that season five wasn’t necessary at all. Hence, the show ends with Eleanor, Tahani, Chidi and Jason’s journey to the afterlife.
The Good Place Season 5: Updates
The Good Place is absolutely binge-worthy, and if you haven’t watched it, you should definitely go ahead. Hence, without spilling out spoilers, it was quite difficult to watch the show end. Season four saw Team Cockroach (Eleanor, Tahani, Chidi and Jason) along with Janet and Michael finally entering the afterlife (the Good Place). After passing several tests, they finally exit it, with their journey being over.
If the show would ever return for a fifth instalment, it would explore the loopholes in the previous season. The door to exit Good Place doesn’t wipe out a person’s existence, the fact that Michael has returned back to Earth. These narratives could be sought out in season five. But, that is quite a long shot.
We do not think The Good Place is going to renew for a Season 5 and even if it does, it’ll take a very long time to release, and most of its fans would have moved on from the show by then.
