Eleanor Shellstrop, an amoral pharmaceutical saleswoman dies and goes to a place known as “The Good Place” which is a heaven-like utopia run by Michael. The people who enter The Good Place are the ones who are rewarded for their righteousness, but in the case of Eleanor (who is mistaken for a good lawyer) and Jason- who is a small-time drug dealer and criminal, they believe to be wrongly sent here. In this system, humans are given scores for their morality and the ones with high morality scores to The Good Place and the ones with low score go to the Bad Place where they are tortured. The Good Place neighborhood is going through the chaos as Jason and Eleanor have arrived due to their bad deeds. Eleanor asks help from her philosopher soul mate Chidi to teach her about righteousness and earn a position in the neighborhood.
In Season 4, an experiment shows that humans improve in their afterlife as well and they have to give a test be for claiming their position in The Good Place. Furthermore, human souls can exist in The Good Place and end their afterlife peacefully. Eleanor, Jason and Chidi decide on doing the same and Michael is sent to Earth to live his life as a human.
