Kris­ten’s FEEL­ING GOOD!

It’s back to earth for Kris­ten’s bad gal char­ac­ter

NW - - Nw Puzzles -

Kris­ten Bell is back for her third round as Eleanor Shell­strop – the bad girl who ac­ci­den­tally landed in heaven (aka The Good Place) after be­ing mis­taken for an­other more kindly Eleanor.

“She’s ac­tu­ally, well, kind of a d**k,” laughs Kris­ten of her char­ac­ter.

When The Good Place re­turns, Eleanor’s been given a sec­ond chance by a judge. She’s alive again, and back on Earth try­ing to do over her life so she can right­fully earn her po­si­tion in heaven – of course with Michael ( Ted Dan­son), the ec­cen­tric ar­chi­tect of The Good Place, watch­ing over her.

“Eleanor’s try­ing... She’s re­ally good at try­ing,” says Kris­ten. “Metaphor­i­cally, this next sea­son is about how you can play chess with peo­ple who don’t know you’re play­ing with them and do­ing so in a way that doesn’t af­fect the greater uni­verse.”

Uh-huh, this sea­son – which has been de­scribed as “fun­nier and filth­ier” than those be­fore – sees Eleanor and her three pals Ta­hani ( Jameela Jamil), Chidi ( Wil­liam Jack­son Harper) and Ja­son ( Manny Jac­into) be­come pawns in the game of life.

“I have the rul­ing from the judge to head down to earth and re­verse the deaths of these four peo­ple,” says Ted, ex­plain­ing that the rul­ing may “cause rip­ple ef­fects in the time­line”. Eek! The Good Place premieres Fri­day Sep­tem­ber 28 on Net­flix

Mas­ters of The Good Place Michael and Janet (D’arcy Car­den) are back to guide Eleanor and her pals
