Why Good Girls Should Return for a Concluding Season

Good Girls on

The fourth season of NBC’s Good Girls was finally released on Netflix in March to fan excitement leading it to trend in the top ten since its release. Unfortunately, it is also the final season since the network abruptly canceled the series last June while it was still airing. But the popularity of Good Girls among viewers is there. When Netflix first released the series, it became a trending topic on Facebook and Twitter, soaring its popularity and viewership not only for it being a binge-worthy show with episodes ending in cliffhangers but also for the cast and storylines that keep fans wanting more.

The dark comedy series stars Christina Hendricks, Retta, and Mae Whitman as Beth, Ruby, and Annie, with Beth and Annie being sisters. Described by some as the female version of Breaking Bad, Good Girls follows the three women who are mothers that struggle to make ends meet for their families. They decide that the best way to earn a large amount of cash quickly is to rob their local grocery store. After the successful heist, Beth, Ruby, and Annie do not realize what they get themselves involved with when the grocery store also serves as a front for a local gang. The three mothers then owe a debt to high-ranking gang member Rio, played by Manny Montana, who has a money-laundering business. A seemingly simple grocery store robbery for Beth, Ruby, and Annie becomes the three being involved in the criminal world filled with lies and secrets and the FBI that are difficult to escape from.

Since the release of the fourth season of Good Girls, fans have been begging Netflix for a fifth and final season to give the series a proper ending. There are a lot of loopholes that need to be closed and questions that need to be answered. Fans are also wondering what happens in the end for the trio, their families, and their criminal life.

While NBC was currently broadcasting the fourth season, the network decided to cancel the series making the fourth season of Good Girls its last. Many wondered if it was because of the low viewership and had hoped the network would have their streaming service Peacock pick up the fifth season. Ultimately it was passed with many fans and cast members disappointed.

It was also noted that viewership wasn’t the only reason for the cancellation. According to TV Line, the network did want to renew the series for a shortened fifth season with Hendricks, Retta, and Whitman agreeing to take pay cuts with production to tentatively begin in spring 2022. However, Montana was against the pay reduction as well as conflicts with scheduling giving the studio no choice but to ax a potential fifth season a month after initial negotiations. The network additionally decided not to shop the series around to other networks.

Ever since Netflix began releasing a new season of Good Girls a year after it broadcasts on NBC, it has consistently become the highest viewed television show without fail. Being one of the largest streaming services, Netflix gives Good Girls a chance to reach a wider audience who are exploring content. When a new season released on the streaming platform, viewers also discuss Good Girls on Facebook and Twitter, making the show a number one trending topic on social media. With all this in mind, the series continues to be in the top ten most viewed television shows on Netflix, not just for weeks but months, reviving the popularity of Good Girls. It makes viewers question why hasn’t Netflix picked up the series for a final season, knowing the fourth ended abruptly?

After the cancelation and the fourth season being released by Netflix, fans have been actively petitioning to get the series renewed. Seeing how Good Girls is consistently popular on Netflix, it would make sense for the streaming platform to pick up the series for a fifth and final season. And it wouldn’t be the first time Netflix revived a series for a concluding season.

Manifest, a drama series that also aired on NBC and was abruptly canceled, was added to Netflix in June 2021, with the show immediately topping the viewership ranks. Being on Netflix gave Manifest a wider viewer audience, with fans also petitioning the series to be renewed for a concluding season. Netflix decided to do a fourth and final season. Netflix has also been known to listen to subscribers by bringing back shows that were once thought to be ended on a disappointing cliffhanger to a satisfying conclusion.

With the Good Girls fandoms, social media interactions, and viewership continuing to grow, fans deserve to see the fifth season of Beth, Ruby, and Annie finally being able to live freely without Rio or the law on their backs. One can only hope that Netflix will be able to gift that to viewers.

Seasons 1-4 of Good Girls are available to stream now on Netflix.

The Stars Of First Blood Have Changed A Lot Since 1982

Another one of the Hope Deputies, Mitch (David Caruso) initially treats Rambo poorly, but changes his tune after seeing the scars all over the man’s body. He sees the danger in this stranger and points it out to the others, uttering the classic line, “We ain’t huntin’ him. He’s huntin’ us.” That turns out to be true, as Mitch becomes the first of the deputies to fall to Rambo after getting stabbed in the leg. He did not appear in the film after that, but we did blow the whistle on Galt’s brutal treatment of Rambo.

Caruso’s star did not take off immediately after “First Blood.” He scored a recurring role on “Hill Street Blues,” which was created by Steven Bochco. He went on to appear in “Twins,” “King of New York,” and “Mad Dog and Glory” before he scored the role of Detective John Kelly in the groundbreaking “NYPD Blue,” also produced by Bochco. Caruso decided to bail out after just one season, though, and tried becoming a movie star with projects like “Jade” and “Kiss Of Death.” It did not work.

After kicking around for a while, he returned to TV prominence as sunglasses maestro Horatio Caine in “CSI: Miami.” However, since that show went off the air in 2012, Caruso hasn’t done anything acting-wise.

Lucasfilm President Describes 'Road Map' for Upcoming Star Wars Films

Published

A new Star Wars film hasn’t hit theaters since 2019, which saw the Skywalker Saga come to an end with The Rise of Skywalker. Lucasfilm has been focused on building out its television properties over the last few years, finding success with such series as The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett on Disney+. Even though the studio is continuing to expand its streaming offerings, that doesn’t mean there aren’t plans in place for Star Wars to return to the big screen. In an extensive look at the state of the franchise in Vanity Fair, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said that there’s a “road map” for the future of Star Wars films.

Kennedy announced during the 2020 Disney Investor Day presentation that Thor: Ragnarok and Jojo Rabbit director Taika Waititi was going to be directing an upcoming Star Wars feature. While updates have been few and far between since then, it seems like that project will be the first of the new batch of Star Wars films to be released. Rogue Squadron from Patty Jenkins seems to be planned for further down the line, more than likely once the director’s schedule clears up following a third Wonder Woman installment. The Vanity Fair piece also mentions the rumored Star Wars film from MCU architect Kevin Feige, and while Michael Waldron recently confirmed that he’s actively writing the project, Kennedy was a little more noncommittal:

Then comes the long-awaited series of films from The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson. For years, there have been rumors and conflicting reports about whether Johnson’s trilogy was still going forward as planned. The mixed critical reception of The Last Jedi seemingly steered Lucasfilm away from the director, but Kennedy says the studio would still like to have Johnson return to the world of Star Wars…once his schedule opens up:

While there’s still a lot of uncertainty around the Star Wars films that are being developed, the fact that there are plans in place bodes well for the future of the franchise. It’s also not like there hasn’t been a long wait between Star Wars installments in the past, as The Phantom Menace came out 16 years after the original trilogy culminated with Return of the Jedi. Even after the prequel trilogy came to an end, it was another decade before The Force Awakens breathed new life into Star Wars. Now that Lucasfilm is no longer beholden to the events of the Skywalker Saga, the door is wide open to take the galaxy far, far away into whatever direction it would like.

In the meantime, Star Wars continues to thrive on Disney+ while Lucasfilm pieces together its plan for a return to theaters. The highly-anticipated Obi-Wan Kenobi series will be hitting the streamer with a two-episode premiere next week, and Andor is set to debut later this summer. Add in the upcoming third season of The Mandalorian and the Ahsoka spin-off that’s currently in production, and there’s going to be plenty of Star Wars content streaming directly into your living room in the near future.
