17 TV Shows About the Afterlife That’ll Have You Pondering Life & Death
The Good Place
On The Good Place, the afterlife is complicated, to say the least. But there are a few things we know for sure. There is a “Good Place” and a “Bad Place” (the vague ideas of heaven and hell) that people can find themselves in when they die. We learn on season one that our protagonists, who think they’re in the Good Place, are actually in the Bad Place. Eleanor (Kristen Bell) and her friends raise an oft-unasked question: what if we could change where we belong in the afterlife? What if she and her friends can somehow convince the powers that be that they deserve a reprieve from the Bad Place and belong on the brighter side of things? The autonomy of life after death is an interesting concept that none of the other TV shows about the afterlife have ever explored!
