2. End of The Good Place
The final episode of The Good Place was broadcast on January 30. Eleanor, its protagonist, dies in the first season and is surprised when she realizes that by an error she was sent to the Good Place, that is, to the good place after death.
The series, then, tracks this error in short 30-minute chapters. The series was praised by the audience and critics for its dramatic turn at the end of the first season and for its tragicomic tone, which is sustained throughout the series.
The end has not been the exception, which has made it become a topic of the moment and that social network users from around the world tell how they cried during the last chapter. It is an unmissable ending.
