NBC has announced that well-reviewed crime drama Good Girls has been renewed for a second season.
Good Girls had solid ratings during its recently completed debut season, averaging a 1.5 in L+7 demo and remaining competitive in its time slot throughout. The show’s steadiness, even in the face of The Voice softening, combined with its strong reviews and Netflix deal ensured that it will be back for at least one more season. It remains to be seen whether NBC wants to try and use it during the fall or if they think the show has an engaged enough audience to withstand another midseason premiere.
From Jenna Bans (The Family), Good Girls follows suburban mothers Beth (Christina Hendricks), whose car salesman husband cheated on her; Ruby (Retta), a waitress struggling to pay for her daughter’s kidney disease treatments; and supermarket cashier Annie (Mae Whitman) as they band together to rob the local grocery store. The thought is that the robbery would ease their financial woes, but they soon realize that things have only gotten more complicated.
In addition to Hendricks, Retta, and Whitman, Good Girls stars Matthew Lillard (The Bridge), Reno Wilson (Mike & Molly), and Manny Montana (Graceland).
The first season of Good Girls wrapped Monday, April 30th on NBC.
