THE GOOD PLACE’s D’Arcy Carden: ‘Nothing Could Prepare Us’ For the Final Episodes of Season 3

The wonderfully weird THE GOOD PLACE is going to a brave new world on Thursday: Janet’s (D’Arcy Carden) Void.

The Void, where Janet (and the other versions of her) lives when she’s not being summoned for information/items, has been mentioned on the NBC comedy before, but never previously seen. But with Janet bringing Eleanor (Kristen Bell), Chidi (William Jackson Harper), Tahani (Jameela Jamil), and Jason (Manny Jacinto) there at the end of the last episode—to save them from certain death on Earth—it’ll be front and center in “Janet(s).”

So what is The Void like? “We truly can’t say a thing,” Carden says with a laugh. “But the writers and [creator] Mike [Schur] [and] every inch of this crew got to have fun with it. The set…we really had a fun time with the next episode.”

Added Jacinto: “The next episode is the one I was looking forward to the whole season.”

Though there have been times the cast has been left in the dark about twists (there’s an adorable reaction video of Schur telling Carden, Jacinto, Harper, and Jamil about the season 1-ending twist), they were looped in about this year’s arc before season 3 started production. “Mike knows so far ahead and took us through [what was to come],” Carden says. “The last half of the season, he got really excited about…We’ve known for a while what it was going to look like. But nothing could prepare us for what these next few episodes look like.”

Oh, fork…

THE GOOD PLACE, Thursdays, 8:30/7:30c, NBC
