‘The Good Place’ Cast Just Wrapped Shooting on the Final Season & Things Got Emotional
All good things must come to an end. We just didn’t know how bummed we’d be to see NBC’s The Good Place go. Turns out we aren’t the only ones.
Over the weekend, the cast concluded filming on the show’s fourth and final season. Several of the stars opened up about the experience on social media and, as you might imagine, things got pretty forking emotional.
Jameela Jamil, for one, shared a photo on Instagram of herself weeping on her final day of filming. She paired the photo with a meaningful note to fans.
“I BAWLED MY F***ING EYES OUT as they called out, ‘That’s a series wrap on Tahani...’”she admitted.
The 33-year-old Good Place star went on to explain how her boyfriend, singer-songwriter James Blake, helped her through the heartbreaking goodbye. “Mike [Schur, series creator] walked towards me in what felt like slow motion, and my heart felt like it was going to burst because I love him so much, and I love this show, and I can’t believe how much it changed my life, and helped my activism and allowed me to do and see things I could never have imagined,” she wrote, adding, “Gah. What a mess I will be for a while. Big ups to my boyfriend for staying at work with me ’til 2 a.m. to be there for that moment.”
She wasn’t the only one who got a little sappy about the series ending. Marc Evan Jackson, who plays Shawn, said goodbye on Twitter.

Manny Jacinto, who plays Jason, kept it short and sweet and shared a cast selfie on Twitter.

He captioned the snap, “Four years goes by quick” with a heart emoji.
Star of the series Kristen Bell reacted to the closing of the season on Instagram last month with a photo of herself openly sobbing in a cast pic taken at San Diego Comic-Con.
“Smiling in a group shot is easy. Openly weeping in a group shot takes confidence, and juuuust sprinkle of crazy,” she wrote.
The Good Place kicks off its fourth and final season on Thursday, September 26, on NBC. We can all agree this goodbye is total bullshirt.
