Good Girls Season 5 Renewal
The Good Girls were originally going to come back for a shorter fifth season. It was also going to be the final season of the hit Netflix show. However, it has been canceled since then. The makers have given their official confirmation that the show won’t be coming back with the fifth season and that the fourth season was the end of the dramedy.
Good Girls Season 4 had 16 episodes. It got great reviews and left fans wanting more! Then why was Good Girls season 5 canceled?
Why Good Girls Season 5 Got Cancelled?
The NBC network and Universal Studios which produce the show wanted to end the show with a short and final fifth season originally. The plans were in place but eventually, the funding didn’t work out. The reason for this is unknown.
It could be because of the falling ratings and viewership of the show. Although season 4 of Good Girls did well, the viewership was a lot less in comparison to seasons 1,2, and 3. Good Girls season 4 averaged 1.5 million viewers approximately but was the least viewed out of all the shows airing on the network at that time.
The show now won’t be picked up by any network, including Netflix, and therefore has to come to a bittersweet end.
There was also some speculation of tension on the set between two of the lead actors- Christina Hendricks (Beth) and Manny Montana (Rio). None of them confirmed or denied this publicly so nobody knows what is true.
Apparently, Manny also refused to lower his salary while the rest of the cast agreed to do so. Due to budgetary concerns, this had to be done. However, since Manny didn’t agree, this didn’t work out either. Ultimately, it had to end.
It’s time to say goodbye to the Good Girls!
