The hit comedy is set to be back on screens with a third season soon. And now it’s time to dig deeper into all the details that we already have. Maybe, that’s something that will help us while away the time as we wait for The Good Place to be back on air.
Everything About ‘The Good Place’ Season 3
The Good Place is a series like none other. Based on a totally new concept, with plot twists that nobody could have imagined, it is really one of a kind in the game. Now that we are expecting season 3, it’s time to address the many speculations going on. When will the show air, what will be the cast, what are the surprises or game-changing twists this year? And here’s the answer to everything you might have wondered.
When Does It Premiere?
NBC has renewed The Good Place for season 3 which is scheduled to hit television on September 27th this year. Previously, the first two seasons premiered on September 19, 2016 and September 20, 2017 respectively. So continuing the September legacy, season 3 will return two days later this same month. For Netflix viewers, the season will arrive probably the next day on September 28th. The Good Place season 3 will be based on a total of 13 episodes.
Thankfully, we have no unwelcoming surprises here. The star cast of The Good Place is all returning back for season 3. Kristen Bell, Ted Danson, Jameela Jamil, William Jackson Harper, Manny Jacinto and D’Arcy Carden are ready to hit screens with the next season. Fans are also hoping that Marc Evan Jackson will be back as Michael’s boss Shawn. And maybe, if we are lucky, Maribeth Monroe, Jason Mantzoukas and Maya Rudolph will all take their roles in season 3 too. Two new faces will also be added to the cast. And they will be Mike O’Malley, as The Guard that is protecting the door connecting the afterlife to Earth, and Kirby Howell-Baptiste who takes the role of Simone.
As the second season wrapped up, Jameela Jamil promised that the premise of the next season would be super exciting. Season 3 is picking up almost where the last season left it. Without spoiling the show for you, Michael will return to Earth to save the lives of Tahani, Jason, Eleanor and Chidi. But whether these characters would become better people back on the planet or not is still a question. A lot is still left to our imagination. Will Eleanor improve? Have they all done enough to land in the Good Place. And will these people all die again?
While discussing the story for season 3, creator Michael Shur said that normally she does not give away the plots. But here is there is no point of keeping the ambiguity. And she revealed that all four of them will be back on Earth. But, in a whole new timeline where they did not die. The lead actress Kristen Bell also dropped a few hints saying that metaphorically put, the new season is all about playing chess with people who do not know that you are playing with them. And doing that in a manner that it does not affect the universe. She even said that their characters learnt that their strengths come when they are all together.
It seems like The Good Place is all set to become more thrilling than ever!
