On Friday, NBC confirmed that the network renewed the popular drama series “Good Girls;” the show will return to viewers for the third season.
“We’re so excited to continue following the friendship and adventures of these three incredible women while also exploring relatable issues in both funny and surprising ways,” said Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, Co-Presidents of Scripted Programming, NBC Entertainment. “Congratulations to Jenna Bans, and our amazing writers, cast and crew who give these stories depth and humanity.”
The show put up strong numbers in seasons one and in season two. In season two, “Good Girls” averaged a 1.1 rating in adults 18-49 and 4.1M viewers overall in “live plus seven day” ratings from Nielsen Media Research. The most recent telecast on April 7 delivered a four-week high in total viewers, according to “live plus same day” Nielsens, and equaled the show’s top 18-49 rating since its March 3 season premiere.
The series has done very well on digital platforms, breaking its series record for best seven-day non-linear viewership with each new episode so far this season. The streaming results allowed the show to double its digital delivery this season versus last.
The cast includes Christina Hendricks (“Mad Men,” “Another Period”), Retta (“Parks and Recreation,” “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce”), Mae Whitman (“Parenthood,” “Arrested Development”), Reno Wilson (“Mike & Molly”), Manny Montana (“Graceland”), Lidya Jewett (“Hidden Figures”), Isaiah Stannard (“Brad’s Status”) and Matthew Lillard (“Twin Peaks,” “Bosch”).
Season 2 of Good Girls is all about the women dealing with the consequences of their criminal behavior. When we last saw Beth, she had just returned home triumphant — her plan to have Rio and the gang arrested, a success, or so she thought — only to find Rio in her dining room, with a gun trained on her bloodied and beaten husband, Dean. As the season came to a close, a shaken Beth was left holding Rio’s gun as he taunted her to pull the trigger and shoot him: the only way out if she and Dean wanted to walk away alive.
“Good Girls” is produced by Universal Television; Jenna Bans writes and executive produces the show for the network. Michael Weaver directs and executive produces, with Jeannine Renshaw, Mark Wilding, and Bill Krebs also serving as executive producers.
