NBC is sticking with Good Girls.

The network has renewed the drama for a fourth season. The renewal comes after season three of the series was forced to end early due to the coronavirus pandemic. Eleven of a planned 16 episodes were finished before production stopped, with the season finale airing May 3.

The Universal Television series, created by Jenna Bans, stars Christina Hendricks, Mae Whitman and Retta as friends who become involved in a criminal enterprise. The cast also includes Reno Wilson, Manny Montana, Lidya Jewett, Isaiah Stannard and Matthew Lillard.

Good Girls draws modest on-air ratings, averaging under 2 million viewers and a 0.4 rating in the key ad demographic of adults 18-49 for initial airings. It's an outsize performer in delayed and multiplatform ratings, however, rising to 3.4 million viewers and a 0.9 in the demo with a week of delayed viewing. 

The show also gets more than half of its 35-day 18-49 rating from digital platforms. Its digital viewership in the demo has grown by 50 percent over last season, making it NBC's second-ranked show this season on digital platforms. Stretching out further, the Feb. 16 season premiere has amassed 7.8 million viewers and a 3.3 rating among adults 18-49 to date.

Bans and Bill Krebs write and executive produce Good Girls. Director Michael Weaver and Mark Wilding also exec produce.

Good Girls joins fellow veterans The Blacklist, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Dick Wolf's three Chicago dramas and Law & Order: SVU, New Amsterdam, Superstore and This Is Us on NBC's scripted slate for 2020-21. The network has also picked up a Law & Order series starring Christopher Meloni, reprising his Elliot Stabler character from SVU, and the comedies Mr. Mayor and Young Rock. The Kenan Show is also being rolled from this season to next.
