Bullshirt! NBC‘s The Good Place got increasingly better as its freshman season continued, but unfortunately that momentum is coming to a halt this week. That’s because the show is going on a winter break early as NBC airs two new episodes of Superstore tonight. The Good Place will not return until Thursday, January 5 at 8:30 p.m. ET.
For those considering catching up on the first nine episodes of The Good Place during the break, it is highly recommended. You can catch-up on NBC.com or through Video On Demand platforms.
The Good Place was created by Michael Schur, who’s best known for co-creating Parks and Recreation and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Kristen Bell stars as Eleanor, who dies at the beginning of the series and is taken to “The Good Place.” The only problem: She was supposed to go to “The Bad Place.” Initially, she kept this fact to herself, but she had to tell her “soul mate” Chidi (William Jackson Harper).
However, Michael (Ted Danson), the architect of their neighborhood, eventually had to find out because the mistake of accepting her was creating havoc. In the second half of the first season, Eleanor will have to prove that she’s worth keeping in The Good Place, while also dealing with the real Eleanor (Tiya Sicar) in the neighborhood.
Jameela Jamil, D’Arcy Carden and Manny Jacinto also star. Parks & Rec vet Adam Scott has also appeared in the latest episodes as the demon of The Bad Place neighborhood Eleanor was supposed to go to. He’s the forking worst.
NBC hasn’t released a synopsis for the next episode, but be sure that The Good Place will return. Schur’s show was granted a 13-episode first season.
