‘The Good Place’ star Jameela Jamil says no one’s guessed what will happen in Season 3

We're trying to work it out ourselves

‘The Good Place’ star Jameela Jamil says no one’s guessed what will happen in Season 3

If you haven’t given The Good Place a watch yet, then you really need to make up for lost time.

The show gave us one of our favourite TV episodes of 2017 – if you don’t mind reading spoilers you can find our take on it here – and keeps getting better and better.

It is currently in the middle of its second season, having recently returned to UK Netflix after a brief hiatus, and is becoming even more quotable with each passing episode.

The manner in which the first season ended has led to fans relentlessly trying to predict what will come next, but one of its stars maintains no one has figured it out yet.

Jameela Jamil, who plays British socialite Tahani in the sitcom, has spoken to Vulture about the show so far, but also about what is set to happen in Season 3.

While a lot of the show’s immediate twists and turns are kept from its stars, Jamil knows what’s coming a little further down the line.

“I don’t have to [theorise about it] because I know what Season 3’s premise is already,” she explained.

“It’s bloody brilliant and so exciting, and nobody has guessed it so far.”

Jamil added that she regularly trawls internet messageboards to find out whether fans have been able to predict what’s on the way and, while rare, correct guesses aren’t entirely non-existent.

“Only one person online guessed what the ending of Season 1 was going to be, and we kept watching this Reddit person to see if anyone picked up on it,” she added.

“The commenters were like, ‘Nah, that’s not gonna happen.’”

Tahani is an extremely posh English person who lived in the shadow of her sister

The Good Place has already been officially renewed for a third season, even if its second is yet to reach a conclusion, so what Jamil knows is more than just idle speculation.

We’re obviously now going back and rewatching episode after episode to see if we can figure out what’s coming next.
