Time to burn your brassieres, ladies. Prime Video has cancelled the Good Girls Revolt TV show after one season. Genevieve Angelson, Anna Camp, Erin Darke, Chris Diamantopoulos, Hunter Parrish, Jim Belushi, Joy Bryant, and Grace Gummer star in the historical feminism drama. Writer Dana Calvo executive produces the series with Lynda Obst, Darlene Hunt, Don Kurt, and Jeff Okin.
Inspired by real-life events, Good Girls Revolt is based on Lynn Povich’s book, The Good Girls Revolt. Set in 1969, the newsroom drama follows female researchers at News of the Week, who request fair treatment in the workplace. The ten episode first season just dropped to Amazon on October 28, 2016. THR reports Sony Pictures Television has big plans for season two and will shop the show elsewhere. In other words, there is still hope for more.
Good Girls Revolt Cancelled After One Season on Amazon
Here is more from THR:
Sources say streaming monitor Symphony Advanced Media metrics had Good Girls Revolt collecting more viewers than many of Amazon’s other originals. Sources say Amazon Studios head Roy Price was not a fan of the series and didn’t deem it to be an awards season player in opting to pass on ordering a second season after hearing Sony’s season two pitch this week. The studio had hoped to file on time for a California tax credit.
What do you think? Have you watched the first season of the Good Girls Revolt TV series? Should Amazon have cancelled or renewed it for season two?
As a woman in her late 70’s, I’m the same age as the women in this series. While they were raising awareness, I was raising my children having married young and gone down the expected path. I was only peripherally aware of the events portrayed and it took me almost a decade to get the message which gave me insight into why I was looking out of windows a lot and wondering what else was out there. Thanks so much for doing this excellent series which I hope to share with my daughter so she will have some insight into… Read more »
I’m only half way through, but I am EXTREMELY disappointed that this story, thus far presented excellently, was abandoned. Our society still has immense work to be done in eradicating these injustices. Especially considering how recent events have exposed and illuminated yet another time how the entrenched, systematic, and brutal (physically, intellectually, spiritually, and emotionally) intolerance and subjugation of any identifiable group that with ignorance, complacency, and smug righteousness we (includes me – male, white, nominally christian, educated, and economically secure) differentiate on some basis that such group(s) are ‘them’ and NOT ‘us’. My Christ says that if if I… Read more »
It was well-written, well-acted, intellectually interesting and dramatically engaging, to say nothing of being prescient. Feminism is not finished and media is still gender-biased. This was a great series, trashed , ironically by the same, ignorant, bullying patriarchy that it exposes.
Just finished binge watching. So sad there is not a second season
Being Amazon canceled it after season 1, they need to remove the series from their line up. It’s 2019, I just watched season one and searched for season 2. This is the best show I have seen on Amazon Prime, considering canceling my subscription if this is their practice.
Don’t cancel this in the midst of the #metoo movement! The strides women have made in the workplace needs to be front and center right now. This show portrayed women’s’ struggles in the 60’s in a beautiful and inspiring way.
I just found this on Amazon
Soooo disappointed no second season
Honestly you find something like this that is done so well and is such a pleasure to watch
Really ticks me off. Reconsider please !!
It is a Fantastic series!! How ironic a single minded man cancelled this series!
Perhaps he’s from the 60’s.. BRING IT BACK
Considering some of the “garbage” on Amazon Prime a second season of GGR would have made a lot of sense when deciding on programming. Could have done without the immorality but the story was award winning quality.
Shame on Roy Price.
