NBC Picks Up Season Three of 'The Good Place'

NBC is extending the life of its comedy set in the afterlife, "The Good Place".

Be sure to tune into The Good Place on Thursdays on NBC! Like its first and second seasons, the third installment of the sitcom starring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson will consist of 13 episodes.

The comedy is averaging a 2.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 6.2 million viewers overall in "live plus seven day" averages, according to NBC, citing Nielsen Media Research. However, it quickly becomes apparent that Eleanor is in the wrong place, and she enlists some others from her neighborhood to help: Chidi Anagonye (William Jackson Harper), Tahani Al-Jamil (Jameela Jamil), and Jason Mendoza (Manny Jacinto). The series initially followed Bell's Eleanor, a awful person on earth who dies arrives in "The Good Place" of the afterlife on a clerical error. The show's been a critical hit, with a slowly growing and enthusiastic fan base, so I'm not super surprised it got picked up for next year. Undoubtedly, the twist in the season 1 finale piqued the interest of many who didn't originally watch the series' debut outing. When additional platform viewing is taken into account, the show's ratings grows to a 2.6 in the key demo, a bump up from its 2.57 rating compared with this time last season.
