The show follows the trials and tribulations of three moms, fed up with being broke for various reasons, who team up to rob a bank. There's a problem, though- they end up stealing from a money laundering ring, and things go down hill from there.

Good Girls stars Christina Hendricks, Retta, and Mae Whitman, with a supporting cast featuring Manny Montana, Lidya Jewett, Isaiah Stannard and Matthew Lillard.

"We're so excited to continue following the friendship and adventures of these three incredible women while also exploring relatable issues in both funny and surprising ways. Congratulations to Jenna Bans, and our amazing writers, cast and crew who give these stories depth and humanity."

-Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, co-presidents of scripted programming at NBC Entertainment.

Good Girls pulls in a live audience of 2.4 million viewers, which comes in just over 4 million once DVR and streaming numbers for the week come in, which is respectable- but almost half of what the series saw in its first season.

Where Good Girls shines, though, is in streaming. Netflix owns distribution rights for the series, which developed a robust streaming base. Netflix pays a pretty substantial fee to NBC for exclusive distribution rights for the show outside of the United States, which helps offset the cost of the program for the network.

Good Girls was brought to life by show runner Jenna Bans, and is produced by Universal Television.

NBC has already renewed an impressive line up of shows for the 2019-2020 season, including  Superstore, The Blacklist, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Chicago Med, New Amsterdam,  Law & Order: SVU,  The Good Place, and Will & Grace.
