Netflix has acquired the international distribution rights to NBC’s comedy series, Good Girls. Season 1 has been added in full to Netflix in multiple regions and season 2 will also be coming to Netflix. 

Ten episodes of Good Girls have now dropped on Netflix just a couple months after season 1 wrapped up on NBC. The new comedy series starring Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Retta (Parks and Recreation) and Mae Whitman (The Duff). It’s about three women in financial dire straits who decided to rob a grocery store only to get into even more trouble.

The countries included for Good Girls Netflix international distribution includes the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Brazil, Spain, Thailand and Singapore. Other regions are included and to see if you’re a recipient, check your Netflix listings.

This is the third major NBC comedy pick up for Netflix in the past several years. The Good Place was the first series to be picked up internationally with weekly episodes and more recently Champions, although that’s since been cancelled.

Why Netflix picked up the show

NBC comedies do particularly well on Netflix. As we mentioned a second ago, The Good Place has been one of the best pickups that the service has made so far.

What about season 2?

Season 2 will also come to Netflix internationally. We may see episodes released weekly like ‘The Good Place’ but at the very least we’ll get all episodes dropped weeks after season 2 finale.

Will Good Girls come to Netflix in the US?

We are expecting Good Girls to come to the United States. Originally, we thought that Hulu had the license but they’re only acting as a catchup for the show.

At the time of writing only episodes six through to ten are available. That suggests that the United States will get Good Girls season 1 but probably won’t land on Netflix until September 2018 at the earliest.
