Starring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson, the Golden Globe-nominated show about life, death and the afterlife has been running since 2016 on NBC and airs on Netflix in the UK.

Series creator Michael Schur revealed in a statement to fans that the upcoming season of the comedy will be the last, saying that just over 50 episodes felt like “the right lifespan” for the series.

He added: “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, at the end of the day, we don’t want to tread water just because the water is so warm and pleasant.”
