Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - The Ghost

Set after the events of Captain America: Civil War, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. begins its Fourth Season with the Sokovia Accords firmly in place requiring all super-powered beings to be registered with the government.

Eleanor Shellstrop (Kristen Bell) wakes up in the afterlife to learn she’s died and made it into an exclusive community in heaven simply called “the Good Place” where her soulmate Chidi (William Jackson Harper) is waiting and she can look forward to a blissful eternity.
