The best thing to happen to “The Good Place” was when Rachel’s mom finally got the news she’d been waiting for, and that was when she realized how important the next season of the show would be.
It was a rare moment of comfort, and Rachel’s parents, Josh and Julie, and her brother Josh’s wife Rachel, were all over it.
That night, Julie and Josh told her that the show had been renewed for a second season, and Julie and Rachel had to rush to the office.
When they arrived, they were met by producers and showrunners Joe and Dan Cohen, who had the following to say: We’re very proud of you guys for having the courage to go in with that.
That was the hardest part.
They said, Well, we know you love it, and we know it’s your dream job, and you’re excited to get back to work.
We thought, Oh, great, we can help you get back into that.
And we did, and the next day we got the call that it was the end of the season, Julie’s mother, Marjorie, called the producers.
The showrunners asked Julie to come in and work, and Marjoree asked if she could bring her baby, Daphne.
They called her the new babysitter.
She came in and sat next to her.
And she was like, “Mom, I want you to come with me to the premiere.”
That was it.
The day after, she called and said, “I need to come and see the finale, I just need to go home.”
Julie and Marvielle had been a big part of the series from the start.
They were in the middle of filming the last season when the showrunner came to her with a message: They needed a new lead and they needed to find someone new.
They couldn’t get anyone who was likable.
Marviell said, No, we need someone that was relatable.
Julie said, I’m not going to let it get to me.
They made an appointment and Marlena got to meet with Josh and Marc.
And Josh said, They have to come.
Marlen said, Oh my God.
He said, It’s going to be great.
Josh said it was a little nerve-wracking.
Marjiell was thrilled.
Josh asked, Why did they hire you to be the new baby?
Marvile said, So we can tell that I can be the surrogate mother.
I’m a good mother.
They told her, We’re going to have to take the baby out of here.
Marc said, You have to go.
Marmaine said, But they can’t tell the producers what you’ve been doing.
And they had to go back to the show’s headquarters to find a new baby.
They needed to be able to tell everyone what they were doing.
They started working on it and realized it was all going to work out in the end.
Josh and Dan had been doing the first three seasons of the program as the babysitters.
They’d been friends with the showrunners for years, but they’d never done it on television before.
But this was something they’d done, and they knew they could do it.
And when they saw how much it meant to Rachel, they felt like, This is a real family, this is really what we’re doing.
The other day, I had a call from Josh.
He was like the one that said he wanted to do something for me, and he wanted me to come to the studio.
I said, Yeah, sure.
We had a little talk and he said, Let’s do it this week.
So he showed me around and I got on the set and he put me in his office, and I told him I wanted to come up here.
Josh was like I’ve never seen anything like it.
I had never seen something like it before.
He told me he’d call me when it was done.
I told Josh I had to leave.
We went upstairs and the producer came up to me and he was like Hey, we had to have this.
And he started crying.
He had to take off the headphones because he didn’t want the producers to hear him crying.
I was so excited.
He came back and said I had some good news.
I just said, What’s that?
And he told me it was like what I wanted, and Josh said that was it and it was, “The end.”
That’s when the whole thing started to click.
Josh had been telling everyone, It was like we were getting a second chance, and now we could tell people we’re not just sitting here in the same room, but we’re having this moment with these people.
And it made me feel like it was something special, and it felt like I was going to do this forever.
