You may not be familiar with the NBC comedy series Good Girls, but it stars the Christina Hendricks-Retta-Mae Whitman combo as the three main characters. Since the first season, which aired in February 2018, Netflix has streamed the show worldwide, with new seasons arriving on Netflix US one year later.
It wasn’t until the middle of March 2022 that Season 4 finally made its way to Netflix in the United States. As a Netflix Original, the show can be found in the service’s international library.
This isn’t the first time an NBC sitcom has been turned into a Netflix Original outside of the United States; The Good Place was another example.
Netflix’s viewership figures for Good Girls are quite astounding. For four weeks after it was added to Netflix outside of the United States, it occupied the top spot in the global rankings. Between March 6th and March 13th, 24,500,000 hours were viewed on Netflix in the United States as a result of the show’s launch to the service.
While the show didn’t have the best ratings on TV, it was able to maintain a healthy global audience in part because of Netflix. Good Girls was one of several NBC sitcoms slated for cancellation in the upcoming 2020-21 season. Even though the contrary was true in June 2021, it was announced that the show would not be returning.
Good Girls Season 5 Release Date
Despite the fact that the fourth season of the Good Girls was released in March of 2021, there has been no information on the creation of the fifth season, much less the release date.
Regardless of whether Netflix or NBC gives the show the light, we can expect production to begin in 2019 with a release date of 2023.
“What’s in a name?”
Actress Christina Hendricks and actor Reno Wilson feature in NBC’s drama series “Good Girls,” which also stars Retta, Lidya Jewett, Isaiah Stannard, Manny Montana, and Matthew Lillard. In the TV series, a group of suburban moms is depicted who have had to make do and mend their relationships with their families.
However, when they rob the neighborhood’s Fine & Frugal grocery, they make significantly more money than they bargained for, and this gets them into serious difficulty with the neighborhood’s crime lord.
As the Secret Service zeroes in on the women’s counterfeit ring in season four, the stakes rise. She had been using her husband’s firm, Boland Bubbles Spas, to hide from Rio and pursue her own criminal career when we last saw her.
Her marriage seemed to be back on track, but only time will tell whether or not Ruby’s concealed secrets implode. With the goal of regaining her independence in mind, Annie is working on her own self-healing and inner love.

Season 4 of Good Girls Has Come to A Close.
It was still possible that the show would be renewed for a fifth season when the fourth season of Good Girls ended, therefore the season finale left some storylines unanswered. Beth Boland (Hendricks) gets elected to the municipal council at the conclusion of the fourth season.
Desperate to leave their illicit habits behind for a new life in Nevada with their families, Beth’s husband, sister Annie, as well as her best friends, Ruby and Stan, converge to Beth’s house and shoot her.
They have actually relocated to Nevada in a flashback. Even though their new lives are entangled, Beth encourages her friends to commit yet another crime, which results in her being shot once more.
On her return to Michigan, Beth finds that her time in Nevada had been a dream. Her wound is not life-threatening, and the incident was in fact faked. Lucy (Charlyne Yi) was killed with Mick’s revolver during the third season of the show.
Beth is well aware that her prints are on the weapon, putting her in jeopardy. Ruby suggests that they all go to Nevada to put their criminal pasts behind them, but Beth says she has no intention of doing so.
Because Annie is concerned about Beth’s safety, she confesses to the crime and accepts responsibility for it so that Beth won’t have to.
Ruby and Stan, on the other hand, must decide whether or not they want to relocate to Nevada at this time. She is given the choice between staying with Beth and Annie or joining us as our true family.
Ruby is seen packing in the show’s final scene. Is she going to stay? Unpacking could also be a possibility. We’ll never find out.
