Good Girls creator Jenna Bans confirms that Monday’s season finale (NBC, 10/9c) will leave fans wanting more — a risky creative choice considering there’s no guarantee the female-powered dramedy will get a Season 2.
“I always feel like I might as well leave everything on the field creatively speaking, and end a season the way it should be ended, regardless of scheduling decisions,” the EP tells TVLine of the “shocking cliffhanger” that closes out the show’s inaugural 10-episode run. “People will for sure want to know what happens next.” (Co-lead Retta previously warned TVLine that, given the extreme climax, viewers are “probably gonna be pissed” if Good Girls gets cancelled.)
NBC is not expected to make a decision about Good Girls‘ future until next week, although Bans says she’s feeling “really good” about the series’ prospects. “We just pitched Season 2 to [NBC’s] Powers That Be on Friday and everyone seemed really engaged and enthusiastic about it.
“We’re pretty excited about the places we’re taking these three women,” Bans continues. “It’s a darkly funny mix of the unexpected and also certain things our audience seems to be craving.”
