NBC has just announced the end of the adventures of Beth, Annie and Ruby after season 4. After four seasons of Good Girls, NBC officially canceled the hit series starring Christina Hendricks, Mae Whitman and Retta. So there will be no Good Girls season 5.
Created by Jenna Bans, Good Girls follows Beth (Christina Hendricks), Annie (Mae Whitman) and Ruby (Retta), three suburban housewives who find themselves caught up in the shady world of money laundering, murder, and criminal activity while trying to balance their family lives.
Good Girls Season 5: The series cancelled by NBC
The series premiered in February 2018 and, while it was a critical success and had a dedicated fan base, Good Girls’ low ratings meant it was on the verge of cancellation for several seasons.
After many negotiations and deliberations, NBC finally canceled Good Girls. Season 4, which currently airs on NBC (‘This Is Us, The Blacklist, & The InBetween‘), will serve as the final season, with the final episode set to air on July 22, 2021.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, sources claim that NBC and Universal Television wanted to bring the show back for a final season in order to conclude, but could not agree on a financial deal.
Good Girls is one of many NBC series to have been canceled, after Zoey and her incredible playlist and Manifest. Both Manifest and Good Girls performed well on Netflix, so it was hoped that the streaming service would take over these series, but Netflix (Elite Season 5, Money Heist Season 5 & Sex Education Season 3) decided not to take over the sequel.
If we combine the loss of these three series with the fact that This Is Us and Brooklyn Nine-Nine will soon end, NBC is a network in full transition. This transition now means that those who have remained loyal to Good Girls will not have the conclusion they had hoped for.
