As networks announce the cancellations of current shows such as Nashville and Difficult People, it鈥檚 nice to hear some good news about聽renewals too: NBC鈥檚聽The Good Place聽will officially return for a third season, according to Deadline. (Spoilers ahead for seasons one and two.)

Kristen Bell stars in the 鈥渁fterlife comedy鈥 as Eleanor, a woman who has accidentally been sent to heaven instead of hell and is trying hard to stay there. Or that鈥檚 what we thought 鈥斅爏eason one pulled off a pretty good twist ending聽that turned聽everything we thought we knew about the show, and Ted Danson鈥檚 character, an 鈥渁ngel鈥 named聽Michael, upside down.

The聽series has been a critics鈥 fave and a ratings success since its debut, and has also managed to garner聽strong word-of-mouth praise and, with it, loyal new fans. It鈥檚 currently just over聽halfway through its second season, having aired the fall finale earlier this month, with a plan to return聽for the season鈥檚 final five episodes on January 4.

While Bell has previously聽stated聽that she鈥檚 committed to聽The Good Place聽for the time being, she also said that she鈥檚 determined to make a new Veronica Mars miniseries happen in the future too 鈥 no matter what it takes.

鈥淚f I have to do it as聽Murder, She Wrote聽at 80, we鈥檙e going to do it,鈥 she recently told IndieWire. 鈥淚t鈥檚 going to happen.鈥 We鈥檙e obviously excited for more Mars to come to fruition, but we鈥檙e more than happy to be glued to The Good Place in the meantime.

Are you happy that The Good Place has been renewed? Let us know @BritandCo!
