This post contains spoilers for the series finale of The Good Place.
Fans of The Good Place were given an incredibly emotional ending to the show last week after four unforgettable seasons. While most of the human members of the Soul Squad walked through the door to leave the Good Place forever, fan-favorite Tahani chose a different fate: becoming the first human architect. But no job can last forever, and one would assume that Tahani would eventually retire and make her way through the door. But Jameela Jamil, the talented actress behind Tahani, tells Woman's Day that her character would be there "forever and ever on end."
"There’s so much to learn it would take her millions of years to even begin to learn," Jamil said.
Sounds like a good idea for a spinoff, right? Well, it seems like Jamil does as well, as she shared a tweet this week that planted the idea in fans' heads.
Tahani survives. Spin off you say...? 🤪 https://t.co/SqgEVVQiko— Jameela Jamil 🌈 (@jameelajamil) February 3, 2020
But when asked about the actual possibility of a spin-off happening, Jameel said there's pretty much no chance that the show's creator, Michael Schur, would want to reopen the story.
"Oh, I’d totally consider it, but it’s definitely a joke," Jameel said. "That’s not a possibility. There’s no way Mike's continuing on with the story. It’s just my wishful thinking, that’s all."
But just in case Schur ever changed his mind, fans began posting their own ideas for what they imagine Tahani could be getting up to in her spinoff.

Tahani & Janet in a workplace comedy set in the Good Place.— Amanda Holland (@AwkwardHolland) February 3, 2020
I’d watch it.
Or help write it.
There's no doubt that a spinoff with Tahani and Janet teaming up to run the entire multi-verse would be forking amazing.
But thankfully for fans who are still reeling from the loss of their favorite show, there already is a Good Place spinoff that they can watch — it just sadly doesn't feature Tahani. Late last year, NBC dropped a six episode mini series called The Selection, which is basically a workplace comedy about the demons in the Bad Place. It follows Sean and his fellow demons shortly after the Judge agrees to let Michael build a new neighborhood to prove that humans can change. Fans get to watch the demons go through the process of picking what humans will live in the neighborhood. The entire mini-series can be watched on the NBC website.
