Who would have thought that Paradise does exist? So the main character Eleanor did not know about this until she died and got into this place. Here you can’t get drunk, you can’t swear, and everyone around is completely angelic creatures. That's just the heroine herself got here by mistake, but no one knows about it ...
All his life, sales manager Eleanor was not the best person. However, as a result of a real accident, the girl dies and ends up in the Best Place, built by Michael, the immortal architect. Here Eleanor meets his "soul mate" Chide, who is trying to make the girl even better. But Eleanor herself doesn’t think she should be here ...
In the third season, Michael tried to convince Gene that since good deeds have more and more unintended bad consequences, it is impossible to earn enough points to get into the Good (Best) Place. Heroes decide to test Chidi’s theory that people can improve if external factors do not interfere with this. Such an improvement will serve to build a new Middle Place where everyone will live.

The showrunner and screenwriter of the project, Michael Schur, explained why the series will be completed in 4 seasons:
“After“ In a better world ”was extended for the second season, the scriptwriters and I immediately began to outline the further trajectory of the show. Given the ideas that we wanted to explore and the speed with which we wanted to present these ideas to the audience, I suggested that four season (and that's just over 50 episodes) would be the right project life span. "
Schur said that he had a desire to go beyond 4 seasons, but he abandoned this idea. The writer also thanked the NBC channel and the team for working on the comedy:
“I will always be grateful to NBC and Universal TV for allowing us to do“ In a better world, ”and also for letting us finish it on our own schedule. I will always be grateful to the creative team, both on screen and and beyond, for their hard work and dedication to a very strange idea. On this show we often ask the question: what do we owe each other? The answer for me is this: I owe you all. We look forward to a great final season to be released this fall, "he concluded.
