When will 'Good Girls' Season 4 return? Here's what to expect from the NBC dramedy after Covid-19 break
If all goes well, and considering most productions have already kicked off filming, the show could manage to return sometime around the Winter premiere season in January-February of 2021
The final moments of NBC's Christina Hendricks dramedy 'Good Girls' were nothing short of spectacular. After an almost full season (that was cut short by the pandemic) Beth Boland (Christina Hendricks), her sister Annie Marks (Mae Whitman), and her childhood best friend Ruby Hill (Retta) really thought they had made it. Unbeknownst to them, Rio (Manny Montana) wasn't the biggest horror on the horizon. Danger lurked in the form of detective Phobe Donnegan (Lauren Lapkus) who might have just cracked the code on the ladies' money laundering business. Thanks to the pandemic, we now have to wait until the next season to find out the aftermath of it all. But before we reveal when Season 4 is finally arriving, here's a little brush-up.
Where we left off?
Fake pregnancies, bullet wounds to the leg, and a lot of deep dives into self-acceptance later, as they finally triumphed over Rio and outdid his smarts by paying him in cash, the titular trio sat comfortably in the local sunny park, drinking out of a paper bag talking about life and its misadventures. Their conversation was however soon interrupted by a female jogger who was enchanted by Ruby's freshly manicured nails and paused to compliment. The trio engaged in her small talk not knowing this is the same Phoebe who's hunting them down and now has them on a closer watch under her radar. Rio might threaten their family, but jail time is a whole other business!
What we'd like to see?
Beth, Ruby, and Annie facing some consequences, more than anything else. As much as we love them and don't even want a scratch inflicted on their imperfect selves, it's about time they stop getting away with all that they do, or it would be too unrealistic even for fiction. It's almost as if Ruby is the only one suffering consequences while the two White women get away with mafia bosses, and destructive behavior, which is grossly unfair. We need Dean Boland (Matthew Lillard) kicked out for good; not because he cheated on Beth with his boss, but because this is definitely not the first, or the last time he'll be doing that. He doesn't quite serve a purpose in her life anyway. And more importantly, Annie should grow up. We get it, she's a dysfunctional single alcoholic mother trying to do the best she can, but when your kid has to parent you more than the other way round that should really be an eye-opening reminder that you, missy, do not have things in order.
When is it returning?
While the third season was in full swing, NBC renewed 'Good Girls' for a Season 4 on May 15. Also, the remaining episodes of Season 3 that weren't filmed due to pandemic restrictions are expected to come out in the next season. So if all goes well, and considering most productions have already kicked off filming, 'Good Girls' could manage to return sometime around the Winter premiere season in January-February of 2021. Here's keeping our fingers crossed!
