All good things have to come to an end eventually. Should Good Girls end with Season 4, allowing the show to go out on a high and with a bang?

Before you even start screaming at me for asking this question, let me start by saying I love Good Girls. I watched it the minute the show came to Netflix Canada and since then have covered it as much as I can. But all good things come to an end.

I adore that Good Girls Season 4 is happening. We need it, especially considering the show ended with the 11th out of 16 episodes this season thanks to the coronavirus. There are still more stories to tell and the show’s writers need time to tell them. But I do think that maybe this is where the show should agree to come to an end. If not this season, then Good Girls Season 5 for sure.

More from NBC

The third season hasn’t been as strong as previous seasons, in my opinion. I’ve enjoyed it and I love that we finally got some sort of development for Annie, but the show just hasn’t captured my attention as much as previous seasons. It feels like some storylines are just being recycled despite there being so many ideas that will likely be circling in that writer’s room.

I like my shows to go out on a high. One thing I want is for this series to go out with a bang—and maybe even a literal one when it comes to the only way this show could end.

Most importantly, I want the show to definitely come to an end. I don’t want an abrupt cancellation that leaves us with major questions that we’ll never get answers to. This (like all shows that are renewed past one season) deserves the chance to wrap up storylines in full. So, being renewed for a “final season” is important for that.

Could Good Girls be canceled abruptly?

One thing that worries me about the future of the series is the low live ratings. NBC benefits from the Netflix licensing deal. Internationally, the show is a Netflix Original. In the U.S., episodes head to Netflix just before the next season airs. This deal helps to draw in more eyeballs to the show but it doesn’t seem to draw more eyeballs to the series live. This could be a worry for the network.

However, NBC is bringing its streaming service Peacock. While Good Girls Season 3 headed to Hulu, it won’t remain there. Instead of heading to Netflix, we could see NBC keep the streaming rights in the U.S. so the show heads to Peacock. This would mean more eyeballs on the show where it counts for the network, which could save it. But this is all an idealistic view.

I’m a realist at heart. Something tells me NBC isn’t going to keep giving the show a chance if it doesn’t bring in the money that’s needed to create it. I’d rather Good Girls Season 4 be the known end then an abrupt cancellation that leaves us all with big questions.
