Good Girls renewed for season 2 at NBC

It's good to be one of the Good Girls. According to Deadline, NBC has handed down a season two renewal to its crime drama series, which features Christina Hendricks, Mae Whitman, and Retta as three moms who get in over their heads after robbing a local grocery store.

Good Girls comes from Grey's Anatomy's Jenna Bans, who writes and executive produces the show for Universal Television. The series, which also stars Reno Wilson, Manny Montana, Lidya Jewett, Izzy Stannard, and Matthew Lillard, finished up its 10-episode first season in April. The series received moderate reviews from critics, sitting at a 62 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

The series had the benefit of The Voice as a lead-in, and it built on the reality show's performance for a solid average of 6.1 million viewers overall and a 1.5 rating in the key 18 to 49 demo. The show ranked number one or tied number one in its time slot for its final five airings, when it didn't have to face off against ABC's ratings juggernaut The Good Doctor. The series has also been boosted by a lucrative streaming deal with Netflix, who distributes the show outside of North America.

NBC has been stingy with drama series renewals this season, with This Is Us and Midnight, Texas the only other drama joining Good Girls as solid returns for next season. They have handed down renewals to some of their comedy series, though, including the Good Place, Superstore, and Will and Grace. The network recently handed down series orders to the medical drama New Amsterdam, the spy thriller The Enemy Within, and the apartment complex drama The Village.

Still waiting to hear back on renewals are The Blacklist, Blindspot, the Chicago series (Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, and Chicago PD), Law and Order: SVU, TimelessThe Brave, and Rise. On the comedy side, NBC has yet to hand down decisions to Champions, A.P. Bio, Trial and Error, Marlon, and Great News. The network has already pulled the plug on The Night Shift, Jennifer Lopez's Shades of Blue, and their Taken series. (via The Hollywood Reporter)
