Watch: Kristen Bell Filmed Her 'Good Place' Co-Stars Learning About the Big Plot Twist

Ever wonder how the cast of The Good Place found out about the huge plot twist that turned the pleasantly charming NBC comedy into a critical darling at the end of Season 1? Did they know from Day 1 what creator Mike Schur had in store for their characters—that they weren't actually in the "Good Place" at all, but had actually been torturing each other in the "Bad Place" all along?

Turns out, Schur managed to keep his big secret all the way up until the day the big reveal was filmed, filling in co-stars Jameela Jamil, D'Arcy Carden, Manny Jacinto and William Jackson Harper while Kristen Bell filmed their reactions. The resulting video dropped Wednesday, ahead of the second season premiere, and based on this alone, both Schur and Bell are for sure going to the real Good Place.
