It’s time to break out the fancy but not too fancy champagne, because we’ve got good news for fans of NBC’s Good Girls: the freshman comedy starring Christina Hendricks, Mae Whitman and Retta has been renewed for a second season, TV Guide has learned.
We’d like to pretend NBC heard our desperate pleas for renewal last month and made the right call, but it probably also helped that the series did fairly well for NBC. According to the network, the Jenna Bans-created series, which follows three suburban mothers who decide to turn to crime as a means of securing the best futures for their families, averaged 6.1 million viewers and a 1.5 rating among adults ages 18 to 49 during its first season. Although Good Girls struggled initially as it tried to pin down its tone, it eventually found its groove and became a surprisingly complex series that wasn’t afraid to blur the lines between good and bad as the women continued to find an array of excuses to justify their actions.
Good Girls, which wrapped its 10-episode season in April, joins the previously renewed This Is Us, Will & Grace, The Good Place, and Superstore on NBC’s 2018-19 schedule.
The network will unveil its fall lineup on Monday, May 14.
