Although the first season of the Good Girls TV show on NBC didn’t exactly set the Nielsen ratings afire, it did run in the middle of the pack of the Peacock Network’s scripted TV series. Since it also got picked up by Netflix for international distribution, it did well enough to earn a second season renewal. Now that it’s back for its sophomore installment just how good can these girls be? Will Good Girls be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A dark NBC comedy-drama, Good Girls stars Christina Hendricks, Retta, Mae Whitman, Matthew Lillard, Reno Wilson, Manny Montana, Lidya Jewett, and Izzy Stannard. The TV series centers on three suburban mothers who have been struggling to get by. After a series of setbacks, they hold up the local Fine & Frugal supermarket, but their take far exceeds their expectations. Soon, they’re in deep with the local crime boss, and these “good girls” find themselves with an array of bad choices. In season two, the women have to deal with the fallout of their criminality.
