Good Girls Revolt - Won't Be Revived *Updated*


Won't Be Revived

In the #metoo era, the time seemed right for a new installment of feminist period drama Good Girls Revolt, hastily canceled by Amazon a year ago. There was enthusiasm by fans and the show’s cast online, and there was incoming interest by networks and streaming platforms, including Amazon, which led to a second-season pitch by series creator Dana Calvo, which was taken out by Sony Pictures TV’s TriStar Television. But in the end, no deal was reached, and I hear the effort to resurrect Good Girls Revolt is now over.


Revival Being Shopped by Sony TV

Almost a year after it was canceled by Amazon after one season, feminist period drama Good Girls Revolt may be coming back. I hear Sony Pictures TV Studios, whose TriStar Television division produced the series, is preparing a pitch for a new season that would go out shortly.

Good Girls Revolt had been canceled by discarded Amazon boss Roy Price. So when he was recently axed in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein exposes over accusations of sexual harassment toward a female producer, Good Girls Revolt started trending on social media. The series’ creator, Dana Calvo and stars were interviewed for stories, and a grassroots movement started to revive the show.

The buzz reached TV and streaming networks, and I hear Sony TV started fielding incoming calls, with multiple outlets interested in picking up Good Girls Revolt. I hear that Calvo and the rest of the series’ original producing team are on board, and a pitch was put together for a second season, which I hear won’t necessarily be a formal second season, picking up where Season 1 left off, but a series in the same setting with the same characters and the same subject matter that would be tailored to the individual network that picks up the show.

Because Good Girls Revolt was canceled so long time ago, the studio doesn’t have deals with the cast but they all have been active on social media, tweeting in support of the show and expressing desire to come back, so the actors are expected to rejoin if the show is resurrected.

I hear the networks that will be pitched on Good Girls Revolt will include Amazon, which was the show’s original home. The streaming service now has a new head of scripted series, Sharon Tal Yguado, who succeeded Price.

The cancellation of Good Girls Revolt was somewhat surprising as the series launched to solid reviews and ranked as one of Amazon’s biggest series ever among female viewers. In women 18-49, Good Girls Revolt delivered the second-biggest debut season for an Amazon original series, behind only flagship drama The Man in the High Castle, and its completion rate in the female demo was 80%.
