‘Good Girls’ is one of the funniest and poignant shows on NBC and it involves three everyday women going about their business during the day but engaging in criminal activities during the night. The suburban Michigan mothers first turn to robbing a grocery store – because they thought it would be an easy haul – and gets sucked further and further into a life of crime, after it turns out that the money is counterfeit and part of a large money laundering operation.
With the store manager recognizing one of them, an FBI officer who sees a bigger fish to fry here, and the mafia lord whose money they stole, the women’s lives are turned on its heads.
NBC renewed ‘Good Girls’ for a third season on April 12, 2019, in August, it was also announced that the NBC dramedy would get three additional episodes as compared to the previous seasons in season 3. In November 2019, it was announced on social media that the new season will premiere on February 16, 2020.

‘Good Girls’ narrates the story of three women – two sisters and their BFF – who are done letting life take a hit at them at every turn. While the elder sister, who also happens to be the de facto leader of the group, going to lose her home to her husband’s philandering and over-spending ways, the younger sister, who is the rebel of the trio, is constantly living paycheck to paycheck while co-parenting her daughter, and their best friend, is taking extra shifts, much like her husband, only for money to still fall short for her sick daughter’s treatment.
Robbing the supermarket that the younger sister works in seemed like a better option than to struggle for money daily, but things get way out of hand way too fast.
The role of the three main women on the show are done to perfection by Christina Hendricks who plays Beth Boland a housewife and mother of four who enters the world of crime out of desperation and develops a taste for it, Retta who plays Ruby Hill, Beth’s best friend and a waitress who will stand by her no matter what, and Mae Whitman who plays Annie Marks, Beth’s younger sister and a teen mom who works at the grocery store that the women rob.
Other prominent roles on the show is played by Reno Wilson, who plays Stan Hill, Ruby’s husband, Manny Montana, who plays Rio, the high-ranking criminal who has the women by the leashes, and Matthew Lillard as Dean Boland, Beth's cheating car salesman husband.
Good Girls’ is created by Jenna Bans, who is a producer and writer on the long-running medical drama ‘Grey's Anatomy.'
