The Good Place actress and executive producer Kristen Bell is ready to take over the director’s role. With the upcoming season 4, Bell will make her directorial debut becoming the first member from the cast to direct an episode. While there are not much details out about the episode Kristen will be directing, we do know that the season is in production. So, it may not be long before a few pictures of Bell on the director seat surface on the internet.
After season 4 was announced at the end of last year, The Good Place cast seems pretty excited. But with Kristen Bell assigned one episode to make her directorial debut, the ensemble must be overjoyed. However, we still have not received any reactions or celebrations from the cast following NBC’s confirmation that the sitcom’s leading lady/exec producer will helm one of Season 4’s 13 episodes.
What Is The Good Place All About?
The season is all about Eleanor Shellstrop played by Kristen Bell who finds herself in the afterlife. Of course, she is both relieved and surprised that she’s made it into the Good Place. But very soon she realizes that this might all just be a big mistake. She attempts to keep on hiding from the Good Place architect and his assistant- Michael and Janet. Her seemingly perfect neighbors Tahani and Jianyu and open-hearted soul mate Chidi help her realize that it’s never too late to become a good person. With support from her new friends and even enemies, Eleanor decides to take on a new role in the Afterlife- a much better version of herself than before.
In the finale for season 3, fans experienced a twist that erased Chidi’s memory of his relationship with Eleanor. Now, figuring out how to deal with the repercussions of said cliffhanger has been daunting for The Good Place team. It has also been revealed that Season 4 will lead back to season 1 in many different ways.
Executive producer Michael Schur revealed that,
The idea is always to change everything and somehow still do the same show that people have been watching. So hopefully, that’s what happens.
For season 4, Kristen Bell will reprise her role as Eleanor. But also as director for one of the upcoming thirteen episodes. Unfortunately, this would be the last season for the show The Good Place.
