How Netflix saved Good Girls

Yes, Netflix declined to literally save Good Girls when NBC canceled the series after four seasons. It’s a blow to the fans of the adored crime dramedy, especially since the series didn’t get to end on its own terms and there were no plans for any streamer to swoop in as savior.

Good Girls has been one of the few NBC series to stream on Netflix, along with the likes of The Good Place, Chicago Med, and (of course) Manifest. The Good Place ended after four seasons, Chicago Med is still going strong, and Netflix nabbed Manifest as an original.

Unfortunately, lightning didn’t strike twice for Good Girls, which has been a steady performer on the streamer with each drop of new episodes. (As of March 15, 2022, the fourth and final season of Good Girls bolstered the series to No. 3 on the overall top 10.)

Regardless if Netflix ever reconsiders its decision to pass on a fifth season (it’s unlikely), Good Girls probably wouldn’t have even lasted to its fourth season without the support from Netflix viewers. Its big numbers on Netflix helped save the series for as long as it could.
