Germany German (Deutsch)

Eleanor stellt fest, dass sie in ihrem irdischen Leben alles andere als nett war, kein "guter Mensch". Nun ist sie an den Folgen eines Verkehrsunfalls gestorben und in einem angenehmen "Leben nach dem Tod" gelandet, dem "Good Place". Fälschlich, denn jemand hat sie mit einer Namensvetterin verwechselt. Michael wird durch die Verkettung unwahrscheinlicher Zufälle zum Mentor von Eleanor auf ihrem Weg zum besseren Ich.

France French (Français)

Italy Italian (Italiano)

Dopo essere stata investita da un camion che trasportava prodotti per la disfunzione erettile, Eleanor (Kristen Bell) si sveglia nell’Aldilà (il Good Place). Ma quando Michael (Ted Danson) le dice che è nel “bel posto” in quanto ha scagionato persone innocenti dal braccio della morte, si rende conto che c’è stato un errore in quanto loro credono che sia un’altra persona. Imprigionata in un mondo dove nessuno impreca, non ci si può ubriacare e tutti sono sempre gentili, Eleanor deve affrontare una scelta: rimanere nell’Aldilà o cercare di trovare un modo per ritornare alla vita mondana che svolgeva sulla Terra.

Season 1What happens when we die? It’s a question everyone has asked, since the beginning of time. But when Eleanor Shellstrop dies tragically, she finds out that the afterlife is amazing; full of frozen yogurt, soulmates, and wonderful people who have done incredible things with their lives. It is absolutely perfect. The only problem is Eleanor isn’t supposed to be in The Good Place. In fact, her life decisions wouldn’t have even gotten her close. But due to a clerical error, she’s been given someone else’s reward and now has to struggle with being good in order to make sure her secret isn’t discovered.13
Season 2Everything Is Still Fine. Just Fine. After Michael’s disastrous attempt to torture Eleanor, Chidi, Tahani and Jason for eternity goes belly-up, Eleanor and the gang are rebooted and Michael has revised his plan to keep his torture subjects separate. Only now, Michael’s soul is on the line, as his boss, Shawn, won’t allow another attempt!12
Season 3At the end of Season 2, Michael appeared in front of the Judge, also to argue that the humans may have been judged unfairly, and deserve a second chance. With a snap of her fingers, the Judge sent the humans back to Earth, in a new timeline where they never died. Also seeking redemption, along with Eleanor, are Senegalese philosopher Chidi Anagonye, who is tortured by decision-making; elegant Pakistani-British socialite Tahani Al-Jamil, and dance-obsessed Floridian Jason Mendoza. Michael is aided by Janet, a human-esque repository for all of the knowledge in the universe. However, when Michael and Janet begin interfering with the humans' lives, to make sure they wind up in The Good Place, they're going against the Judge's orders and on borrowed time. When The Bad Place gets involved, Michael and Janet must ask themselves, just how far they'll go to keep the humans out of The Bad Place.12
Season 4The experiment on self-improvement in the afterlife begins. Shawn repeatedly tries to sabotage the experiment, first by sending a demon to impersonate one of the test subjects, and then by having a Bad Janet impersonate Janet. Once these deceptions have been uncovered, the four human test subjects are Chidi himself, Simone, gossip columnist John, and entitled chauvinist Brent. Eleanor and the rest of the team encourage the four to become friends, study ethics together, and improve as people. By the conclusion of the year-long experiment, all but Brent have shown moral improvement, and even Brent shows potential for change at the last minute. The Judge decides that the afterlife system is indeed flawed—but to mend it, all of humanity must be erased from existence.13
