Unfortunately, no. NBC confirmed that the series will not be renewing anytime soon. ‘The Good Place’ bade adieu to its fans with a double episode on January 30th, 2020. In an interview with “TVLine”, Schur said, “Every time that we thought of maybe extending, we came back to the guiding principle that it was better to cut something off before it runs out of juice”.
He also said in the same interview that he wanted to keep the series running but decided against it as he felt it is the right way to end it.
Will there be a spin-off series?
There have been some rumours about a potential spin-off series milling around. It stemmed from a mini-series based in the bad place (hell) called ‘The Selection’. The six-episode series can be watched on the NBC app. However, the news about a proper spin-off series has yet to be confirmed by the network.
