NBC released a six-episode companion digital series to “The Good Place” on Friday, previewing the fourth season’s big good-versus-evil experiment.
The last season of the NBC comedy left off with Eleanor (Kristen Bell) and Michael (Ted Danson) preparing for a contest against Shawn (Marc Evan Jackson) and the other demons to prove that humans can be made into better people in the afterlife.
The new web series, titled “The Selection,” reveals the how the demons chose the four humans who would serve as the experiments test subjects (after ruling out a few candidates including a frequent TikTok user, Adolf Hitler, the equally stinky Steve Hitlerand the first person to use the phrase “think outside the box,” Idi Amin).
The six episodes clock in at about two-minutes each and are available to stream on the NBC app.
From executive producer and showrunner Michael Schur, “The Good Place” stars Kristen Bell, Ted Danson, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, Manny Jacinto and D’Arcy Carden. Season 4 premieres on Thursday, Sept. 26.
