No Season 5 for the crime dramedy.
June 25, 2021
It is being reported that NBC has cancelled Good Girls. The sad news comes a month before the crime dramedy wraps its fourth season, meaning its finale on July 22 will now serve as its series ender.
The hour-long show premiered in early 2018, performing reasonably well in its mid-season time slot. Since then it has gone on to be a reliable spring entry for the network, and has also found its share of viewers in its second run on Netflix.
Good Girls follows three suburban mothers fed up with barely making ends meet. Wanting to change their fortunes, they rob a local grocery store together. But when they get identified and the stolen loot ends up being more than they expected, the three friends soon realize that they are in too deep and their lives may never be the same.
Five episodes remain before the series finale, but unfortunately it sounds as if the ongoing storyline will not have a proper conclusion. Producer Universal Television will also not be looking to find it a new home.

This was a good show. I am still going to try to binge watch the rest of it. I wish them all the best.

Apparently it was cancelled due to cast issues.
These ladies probably didn't get along on set

Exactly. Not everything is a conspiracy to make things more or less of something to fit an agenda. There is no "agenda" except telling a story. Sometimes it's also all about timing and how the show is promoted/the platform it is on. I also agree about the plotlines becoming more and more ridiculous. Sometimes, I think they should've stuck to the masked robbers part and left all the rest out.

Not sure what's with all the "woke", this show was not affected by it or played any part in its cancellation. Show did poor live but great in streaming. It was too expensive to move to Netflix, otherwise show would still have continued in streaming world. It was just on the wrong platform to begin with.

Exactly what was said! The show wasn't pushy on those subjects. Yes, there was a character that is a transgender played by an actual trans actor BUT they weren't shoving it down our throats...ERGO cancelation because they weren't pushy enough.

OMG finally! It started out alright Season 1 and then spiraled into a miasma of one step ahead ten steps back.I mean no criminal enterprise runs absolutely perfect all the time but I never seen one as constantly plagued with outside problems as these three. One thing is an occasional blackmailer taking a cut but every episode takes us deeper and deeper into these implausible impossible scenarios that any other garden variety hoodlum would’ve been buried under the jail by now. If you thought Breaking Bads” Walt & Jesse endless missions and plot line were tedious, try watching Episode 12 and then you’ll understand why it was chopped.

I find it hilarious that yet another person is complaining that the show wasn't woke enough when one of the characters has a transgender son played by an actual trans actor. But he's a character and a typical teenager, so there's no deep message there. It's just inclusion and representation. Which most shows engage in, so don't shake too much in your red baseball cap.

Netflix deal fell through because of budget and legal issues. Gotta love america, you have something that would be great for streaming on netflix but can't transfer from NBC to netflix, too much work and money.

the premise was flawed. it was a movie of the week. or a limited series.
Not sure why nbc likes juggling us around?

42 comments and no one has said "release the... acting."
She has stated on record her assets are for her and hubby. And i know! the duff, and the other also make a great show.
