“Good Ladies” canceled after 4 seasons on NBC after plans to modify to Netflix fell aside
I know they won’t let the fans down like that! The last five episodes of #NBC’s “Good Girls” will be the last.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that NBC canceled the dramedy after four seasons. The show is still in its fourth season and will end the final episodes this summer.
Efforts have been made to move the series to #Netflix, where the show has gained a fan base, but those plans imploded and the series will not move to streaming service as an original series for a fifth season.
Sources told THR that NBC and its in-house studio Universal Television wanted to bring the show back for a fifth – and final – season, but could not reach a financial settlement that would have allowed the show to continue another season.
It didn’t look too good for the show, which starred Christina Hendricks, Mae Whitman and Retta as friends involved in a criminal enterprise, as viewership numbers went downhill this current season.
Season four recorded an average of just 0.7 million viewers in the 18- to 49-year-old age group, more than 22 percent less than in the previous year, and 2.74 million total viewers if you include seven days late viewing.
The deal at Netflix seemed likely after former NBC co-president of scripted content Tracey Pakosta – who renewed the show several times during its run on the network – left NBC to take over comedy at Netflix. One factor that could have been an issue with the show’s move would have been that Universal TV asked Netflix to pay more production costs for the show.
