Everything is not fine, as much as The Good Place keeps repeating the phrase.
Show creator Michael Schur announced Friday night the show’s upcoming 4th season on NBC will be its last. Schur broke the news with a long statement on the show’s twitter account.
Schur said that four seasons, and just over 50 episodes, is “the right lifespan.”
“I will be forever grateful to NBC and Universal TV for letting us make ‘The Good Place,’ and for letting us end it on our own schedule,” wrote Schur.
The show’s final season is set to air this fall.
Schur said the idea to only go four seasons started when the show was picked up for season two. He did admit he’s been tempted to go beyond four seasons in the past.
Schur closed the statement with a message to fans.
“We ask the questions very frequently, on this show, what do we owe to each other? The answer, for me, is: I owe all of you a whole lot,” wrote Schur. “We look forward to a great final season airing this fall.”
