Good Girls Revolt is officially cancelled. The sad news greets fans of the former Amazon series.
Last December, the network axed the period drama from its lineup. Released last October 28, season 1 consisted of 10 episodes.
Consequently, producer Sony Pictures Television took initiative, according to TVLine. It made plans to offer the Good Girls Revolt season 2 to another network. Hence, everyone felt hopeful.
Bad News for Good Girls Revolt
Alas, nothing came out of it. According to Deadline, a number of networks showed interest in the series. Ultimately, none of them made a commitment. This is in spite of the additional incentive Sony TV issued as it exhausted all efforts to market the series. Thus, the hope for more Good Girls Revolt episodes ended.
Showrunner Dana Calvo took to Instagram to say thank you for the Good Girls Revolt season 1. At the same time, her
message expressed sadness at the ending coming too soon for the series. Comments on Deadline’s report about the cancellation reveals fans’ disappointment as well. Interestingly, one comment wishes the series would at least get a nod during Awards season.
“Good Girls Revolt won’t be airing on another network. We made what felt like a 10-hour play, and I will miss the world and the characters that our cast brought to life,” Calvo wrote.
“Mostly, I will miss hearing from all of you who said it had an impact. Sending love and thanks today for the privilege of being able to tell stories that bring us closer and make us stronger,” Calvo added.
A look back at Good Girls Revolt season 1
The TV series took inspiration from Lynn Povich’s book of the same name. It chronicled a landmark sexual discrimination cases during the sixties. Hence, the retro setting in 1969.
The Good Girls Revolt cast include Pitch Perfect star Anna Camp, Backstrom regular Genevieve Angelson, and Silicon Valley’s Chris Diamantopoulos. In addition, Erin Darke from We Need to Talk About Kevin, Weeds’ Hunter Parish, and Parenthood’s Joy Bryant. Grace Gummer from Newsroom guest starred on the series as the young novelist/playwright Nora Ephron.
