(VIDEO): Kristen Bell tears up at SDCC on the ending of ‘The Good Place’

Costars Kristen Bell and William Jackson Harper share a sweet embrace on the bittersweet ending.

Maybe “bittersweet” isn’t the right word to describe the last season of The Good Place. Kristen Bell (Eleanor) and William Jackson Harper (Chidi) both tried to find the words to describe the beloved NBC series as they did their last round of press for the show that’s brought them a devout fandom and forever friendships among the cast.

Watch the video of our exclusive interview with Bell and Harper as they discuss the series’ intricate philosophical themes (Bell discovered that in real life her belief system falls under moral particularism) and share a sweet embrace as they take in the last moments together as a cast.


  • Kristen Bell: “[Chidi and Eleanor] always ending up choosing each other [no matter what], and that’s the definition of love.”
  • William Jackson Harper: “The fact that things have an end gives it meaning.”
