NBC's The Good Place is coming to an end, and while fans may have wanted the series to continue indefinitely with great twist after great twist, they've been assured it's for the best. Even so, it's still okay to feel a little disappointed about it all coming to an end, especially for those who are a part of the cast and crew.
With that said, how did Kristen Bell and Ted Danson find out The Good Place is ending? Both shared their experiences during the TCA summer press tour, and CinemaBlend was on hand at the Good Place panel to hear about Kristen Bell's phone call, ultimatum, and acceptance when speaking to creator Mike Schur.
One of the most stressful things about a show ending for an actor can be finding another job, so good on Kristen Bell for trapping Mike Schur into writing another television series for her ahead of him delivering that news! Jokes aside, Bell sounds like she was ultimately fine that the ride was coming to an end, mainly because she has yet to be burned for putting her faith in The Good Place creator.
Much like Bell, Ted Danson ultimately took the news about The Good Place ending well. Danson explained his acceptance over the news was largely tied to his experience on the show, and a feeling that the status quo would continue into the final episodes.
Danson didn't need to hold out for another series as he's already got something going with Tina Fey, but even if he didn't, he's happy because he knows the show is going out on its own terms. Not every show gets that kind of luxury, so few can blame him for being so grateful even if there might've (the ratings weren't that great) been more life in The Good Place yet.
The Good Place's final season airs on NBC this fall, so be sure to stick with CinemaBlend for all the latest on what's happening in the world of television and movies.
