NBC has renewed THE GOOD PLACE for a third season, the broadcast network announced Tuesday.
The Kristen Bell comedy will return for another 13-episode season, likely in fall 2018. Season 2 of the comedy, also starring Ted Danson, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, Manny Jacinto and D’Arcy Carden, is currently airing and will return in January with new episodes.
The series was originally ordered straight to series for the 2015 season and has become one of the few breakout comedies on broadcast networks in recent years.
Mike Schur is the creator and showrunner, with David Miner, Morgan Sackett and Drew Goddard also serving as executive producers.
This year, it joins Will & Grace in getting an early renewal, and This Is Us also has a guaranteed third season since it was renewed for 2 years following the smashing success of its first year.
