Watch: Kristen Bell Gushes Over Best Friend Ted Danson

Kristen Bell is bidding a fond farewell to The Good Place

Just months ago, it was announced that the Emmy-nominated NBC sitcom would come to an end after its fourth season. Kristen acknowledged fans' "shock" in an exclusive interview at the 2019 Emmys, but said the decision to end the show in the midst of ongoing success is coming from a good place... no pun intended. 

"Our creator made an ethical decision that this is where the story ends so it ends on purpose and for a reason that people will see," she teased to E! News. 

However, that's not to say Kristen won't miss tapping into her inner Eleanor Shellstrop. As she described, "I will miss playing someone who can be completely unhinged because that's quite fun... Ted Danson is one of my best friends in the world and I will miss going to work every day." 

All together now: Aww!
