NBC has handed out an early renewal to drama series Good Girls. The series, which airs on this side of the pond on Netflix UK, will return for its third season.
The pick up comes after the show’s second season has been ab L7 audience of 4.1 million viewers and a 1.1 A18-49 rating. Per NBC, it has also broken its record for best seven-day non-linear viewership with each new episode so far this 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 for NBC Entertainment. “Congratulations to Jenna Bans, and our amazing writers, cast and crew who give these stories depth and humanity.”
Good Girls tells the story of three suburban moms who get tired of trying to make ends meet and decide it’s time to stick up for themselves by robbing the local grocery store. But when the manager catches a glimpse of one of them and the loot is far more than they expected, it doesn’t take long for the three best friends to realize the perfect getaway will be harder than they think.
The comedy drama, which was created by Jenna Bans, is produced by Universal Television and stars Christina Hendricks, Retta, Mae Whitman, Reno Wilson, Manny Montana, Lidya Jewett, Izzy Stannard and Matthew Lillard. Series creator Jenna Bans serves as an executive producer alongside Michael Weaver, Jeannine Renshaw, Mark Wilding and Bill Krebs. Netflix has yet to set a UK premiere date for season two.
