NBC wants to stay in "The Good Place" a little longer: The network has renewed the hilarious afterlife sitcom for a fourth season.

Though an exact episode count for season four has "yet to be determined," the network had nothing but praise for the series. In announcing the renewal, execs touted the show's unparalleled creativity and amazingly talented ensemble, led by Kristen Bell, Ted Danson, William Jackson Harper, Jameela Jamil, Manny Jacinto, and D'Arcy Carden.

"Congratulations to [creator] Mike Schur and an exceptional cast and crew, all of whom collaborate to create a thoughtful, mind-bending and hysterical series unlike anything else on television," said Tracey Pakosta and Lisa Katz, co-presidents of scripted programming at NBC Entertainment, in a statement. "We can't wait to see what unexpected stories the new season will bring."

We can't wait, either, especially considering how many different twists the show has cycled through (and absolutely nailed, we might add) already. This season has focused on Eleanor (Bell), Chidi (Harper), Tahani (Jamil), and Jason (Jacinto) getting a re-do of their lives on Earth, with some light -- then pretty direct -- nudging from Michael (Danson) and Janet (Carden).

The season three midseason finale is slated to air this coming Thursday, November 6 on NBC. "The Good Place" will return sometime in January.
