Created by Jenna Bans (‘Grey’s Anatomy’), the show first premiered on February 26, 2018. Upon its release, ‘Good Girls’ opened to decent reviews from the audiences and critics. The show has been lauded for the impeccable performances of its lead cast and thought-provoking story.
Fans of the show have been waiting for Good Girls season 3 to release for quite some time. Well, the wait is almost over. Here’s everything we know about the latest season of the show.
Good Girls Season 3 Release Date: When will it premiere?
‘Good Girls’ season 3 is all set to release on Feb 16, 2020, Sunday, at 10 pm ET, on NBC. It consists of 16-weekly episodes as opposed to the usual 13 episodes, with a runtime of 55-60 mins each. The show will end its run on May 31, 2020.
Good Girls season 3 will release in its entirety on Netflix, once all the weekly episodes are released on NBC. So we can expect a Netflix release in June 2020.
Good Girls Cast: Who is in it?
Christina Hendricks (‘Mad Men’) headlines the cast as Beth, the leader of the pack, who is hellbent on turning the business into an empire. Joining her as her sister/partner in crime is Mae Whitman (‘One Fine Day’) as Annie, a single mother who works at Fine & Frugal superstore. Retta (‘Parks and Recreation’) plays the character of Ruby, a sharp-witted and kind-hearted waitress who needs money for her daughter’s kidney treatment.
The other cast members are Izzy Stannard as Annie’s daughter Sadie, who comes out as transgender later. Lidya Jewett as Ruby and Stan’s daughter Sara, David Hornsby (‘Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet’)as Annie’s sleazy store manager, Leslie “Boomer” Peterson, Manny Montana as the criminal mastermind Rio, Matthew Lillard as Beth’s cheating husband Dean and Reno Wilson as Ruby’s responsible and proficient husband Stan, who is also a cop.
All the members from the main cast will reprise their roles in season 3, except for Rio’s character, whose future is a little dicey. Season 3 introduces new faces like ‘Orange is the New Black’ fame Jackie Cruz as Rio’s baby mother Rhea and Charlyne Yi (‘House MD’) as a graphic designer who helps the trio.
Good Girls Plot: What is it about?
‘Good Girls’ is a crime dramedy about three best friends/mothers, Annie, Beth (who are sisters) and Ruby. Inevitable expenses have drained them off all their resources, as a result of which they devise a plan to rob a superstore Fine & Frugal, where Annie works. Surprisingly, the trio is successful in pulling it off but their lives turn upside down as Annie’s dubious manager Leslie identifies Annie, causing them to resort to dangerous means to keep him from spilling the beans. One thing leads to another, and the three ladies find themselves dealing in illegally-obtained cash for a criminal Rio, who owns a money laundering business. No matter what they do, they can’t seem to find a way to get back to their normal lives.
The second season provides hooks the audience from the get go. Ruby reveals everything to her beloved husband Stan, who goes out on a limb to keep Ruby and the family out of trouble, even risking his job and reputation. Annie is reeling from the fact that her new boyfriend Noah is actually an undercover FBI agent, whose only aim at pursuing a relationship with her was to get more dirt on her. However, ringleader Beth is actually loving the thrill of being a criminal. With Agent Turner on her back, the season ends with Beth sealing the fate of her complicated relationship with Rio by taking him down. But is he really gone?
Season 3 might throw light on Beth’s life after Rio’s exit and her handling of guilt, and will further showcase Beth having a tough time convincing the girls to get back in business. Beth’s vision to take over the business and have women rule it has fared well, after Rio’s elimination. But what if he is alive? There won’t be much of Mary Pat in the season. Also, the return of Rio’s baby mama might create complications in the trio’s life when the truth comes out.
