It seems like just yesterday that Good Girls was making its debut on NBC. But it's already gone through three crazy seasons, and continues to amass a huge fan base. Today, the cast received word that the comedic drama has been renewed for a fourth season and will hopefully debut this fall, depending on how soon production is allowed to ramp up.
The entire cast got the news direct from NBC. And now the network is sharing the actors' response in a fun at-home video that sees the leads accepting the good news for the first time. You can watch their reactions in the video below.
In Good Girls, when sisters Beth and Annie and their best friend Ruby become fed up with playing by the rules and not getting the respect they deserve, they band together to take control of their lives, by holding up a local grocery store.
Beth's the perfect wife and mother, but her used-car-dealing, cheating husband has sent her family into financial ruin; Ruby is happily married to a policeman but can't afford the medical bills and experimental drugs to help her daughter; and Annie, a single mom, is caught in a nasty custody battle with her ex.
In desperate need of money, the women plan the heist expecting to ease their financial burdens. But new to the game of crime, they get pulled in deeper than they ever imagined -- and the only way out of this will be together.
Good Girls has been deriving 58% of its 35-day 18-49 rating from digital sources and has seen its digital 18-49 viewership grow strong in season 3 versus last season by 50%, making it NBC's #2 show on digital platforms. So you can thank streaming for keeping Good Girls alive.
Good Girls has averaged a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.4 million viewers overall in "live plus seven day" Nielsens, with the show's Feb. 16 season 3 premiere growing to a 3.3 rating in 18-49 and 7.8 million viewers with digital and linear viewing recorded to date.
The cast, all of whom are included in the reaction video, features Christina Hendricks, Retta, Mae Whitman, Reno Wilson, Manny Montana, Lidya Jewett, Isaiah Stannard and Matthew Lillard. The three main leads were all coming off huge series at the time they joined. Christina Hendricks had just finished up her run on Mad Men, which aired on AMC. Retta and Mae Whitman are NBC alums, with Retta having just come off of Parks and Recreation, and Whitman having starred in the underrated fan-favorite dramedy Parenthood, which had a longer than expected shelf life for the network.
Jenna Bans and Bill Krebs write and executive produce. Michael Weaver directs and executive produces. Mark Wilding also executive produces. Good Girls is produced by Universal Television.
