Good Girls has been cancelled by NBC after four seasons. Good Girls is a television series created by Jenna Bans that follows Beth (Christina Hendricks), Annie (Mae Whitman), and Ruby (Retta), three suburban housewives who become involved in the shady world of money laundering, murder, and criminal activity while attempting to balance their personal lives.
The show launched in February 2018, and while it was well-received by reviewers and has a devoted following, the Good Girls’ poor numbers have kept it on the brink of cancellation for several seasons.
NBC has officially cancelled Good Girls after months of negotiations and debate. The current season, Season 4, will be the final season, with the final episode planned to premiere on July 22, 2021. According to THR, NBC and Universal Television wanted to bring the show back for one final season to wrap things off, but couldn’t come to an agreement on a budget.
Cancelled By NBC
Following Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist and Manifest, Good Girls is the latest NBC comedy to be cancelled. Both Manifest and Good Girls did well on Netflix, so there was hope that they might be picked up by the streaming service, but both were turned down.
When you consider the loss of those three series, as well as the reality that This Is Us and Brooklyn Nine-Nine will be ending soon, NBC is in the midst of a massive transformation. Those who remained with Good Girls will now miss out on the satisfying conclusion they had hoped for.
