LOL: Watch ‘The Good Place’ Bloopers from the Fourth and Final Emmy-Nominated Season

But even though the fourth and final season was full of hilarious and touching moments, it took many, many mistakes to deliver those excellent episodes, as you can see in nearly 10 minutes of The Good Place bloopers below.
