In this week’s TV catch up, we’re looking back at all the TV show news you may have missed!
“The Good Place” to End After Season 4
That’s it. We’ve finally arrived in the Bad Place and it’s worse than we could have ever imagined. NBC’s beloved and genius sitcom “The Good Place” will end after the fourth season which premieres this fall. Here’s what creator Mike Schur had to say about it:
“After The Good Place was picked up for season two, the writing staff and I began to map out, as best we could, the trajectory of the show. Given the ideas we wanted to explore, and the pace at which we wanted to present those ideas, I began to feel like four seasons—just over 50 episodes—was the right lifespan. At times over the past few years we’ve been tempted to go beyond four seasons, but mostly because making this show is a rare, creatively fulfilling joy, and at the end of the day, we don’t want to tread water just because the water is so warm and pleasant. As such, the upcoming fourth season will be our last.”

Billy Hargrove Deserved Better on ‘Stranger Things’ Season 3
This post contains spoilers. If you have not watched Stranger Things Season 3, do not continue reading.
Billy Hargrove made a splash on Stranger Things Season 2 as the resident bad boy, but it wasn’t until the third season where he became fully integrated and essential to the core storyline.
In the third season, Billy rose from being a supporting character to essentially carrying the series, yet he never got the recognition he deserved.
There have been a handful of characters who I could’ve demanded justice for in the Stranger Things realm from Barb to Bob to Alexei. Trust me, they all deserve it, but Billy’s storyline especially triggered me because he was cheated from the very beginning.
He was never set up to win, and when he finally did achieve his redemption arc, it was glossed over because of a bigger death; one that admittedly, carried more weight.
I’m obviously referring to Hopper’s death.
The emotional stock of Billy’s decision to fight through the evil coursing through his body in order to save Eleven didn’t have time to sink in or resonate before the writers ripped our hearts in half by killing the hot-headed-who-always-meant-well police chief and Eleven’s dad.
But here’s why Hopper’s death shouldn’t have overshadowed Billy: there’s a huge probability that Hopper isn’t dead.
The scene following the credits showed the Russian’s referring to an “American” prisoner.
The Russians referred to Hopper as the American multiple times throughout the season, so it’s likely that Stranger Things Season 4 will be a rescue mission to save Eleven’s beloved papa.
But Billy is gone for good, and still died a secondary death.
And in his final moments, the only person who mourned him was Max, who for most of the season was forced to turn against her brother because he became the Mind Flayer’s host.
At no point did any of Max’s friends show concern over Billy nor did they try to save him from the Mind Flayer’s control. From the getgo, they rode him off as the “bad guy” because he wasn’t liked around town and accepted his fate.
Billy may have been deemed the “classic bully” and boy, he did a good job at it, but Bily wasn’t a bad guy who deserved his death.
Billy was broken and tormented.
As we saw when El tapped into his subconscious, his father was abusive and his mother abandoned him.
Instead of dealing with the trauma, Billy acted out and became a womanizer.

Chemistry is that “thing” between two characters that is so electric, it cannot be ignored.
