Kristen Bell just teased a guest star for “The Good Place,” and it may be too cute to be real
Kristen Bell’s show, The Good Place, was one of the funniest comedies to debut last season. We were super thrilled to see it would be renewed after a MASSIVE cliffhanger ending. If this new costar is any indication, it might just be the cutest show airing right now, too. Kristen posted this adorable little snap to her Instagram earlier in the week, and now we can’t wait to see this pup make his television debut.
The Good Place is currently shooting its second season, and this little guy will appear when the episodes start airing in the fall. The look on Kristen’s face says it all. We can’t wait to get our eyes on him either.
If you need a refresher, The Good Place tells the tale of Kristen’s Bell’s Eleanor Shellstrop, a kind of awful woman who accidentally gets let into heaven. Upon arriving, Eleanor realizes she’s been mistaken for a charity worker who devoted her life to saving innocent people, and has to now fake her way through eternity.
In the season finale, we learned that Eleanor and her friends, Chidi, Tahani, and Jason, aren’t in heaven! They’re actually in an experimental version of The Bad Place, where evil overseer Michael is secretly tormenting them. When Eleanor figures this twist out, Michael throws them into a reset, leaving us going “WHAT THE FORK?”
We’re not sure how this cutest little guest star factors in. Maybe in the new version of the Bad/Good Place, adorable puppies are always just out of reach? That would be evil. Whatever it is, we can’t wait to find out.
