The show The Good Girls Revolt was determined to move on with a bang but although the series which was strongly viewed by many female viewers will not be renewed for a second season, The Amazon’s Good Girls Revolt does not have a permanent home. The premise of the show wasn’t great. It is about female researchers who sued Newsweek for sex discrimination in the early 1970s and eventually won. The show had received a greenlight to go on with multiple seasons by many critics but there weren’t enough takers to show the show. Sadly, Amazon agreed. They wanted the Mad Men-esque show to take its last bow. Nevertheless, many people felt that the positive reviews and the tremendous popularity of the show slammed all those that voted for the show to be cancelled.
A year ago, based on the subscriber response to the pilot episode. They released all 10 episodes in late October. Making the announcement of the cancellation a surprise. As stated by many “We had twice Transparent’s audience,” Good Girls Revolt creator Dana Calvo told Buzzfeed, citing data from the Symphony Advanced Media service that estimates ratings for shows on streaming services. “We were stunned by Amazon’s decision, but heartened and encouraged by Sony’s devotion to the project.” Amazon does not provide viewership data to the production companies that make its original shows, and producers often use Symphony in renewal negotiations to bolster claims of a show’s popularity. “We had high hopes for Good Girls Revolt,” Amazon Studios development chief Joe Lewis told The Hollywood Reporter, “and have tremendous respect for the creators, cast and Sony, but I can tell you that the Symphony numbers being reported are wrong and that the show wasn’t performing at the levels we had hoped for — either in total viewership or completion rates.”
Who knows if the serious undertones of the show caused friction but the obvious coverage of this storyline did not ring in the minds of viewers. With so many shows gaining life somewhere else, it is not likely that Good Girl Revolt will possibly be seen on Hulu or Netflex. All ends have a resolution. Though the continuation of the series is bombed. With the inclusion of many streaming services and devices like tablets via mobile devices, there are other shows worth watching. Reminding those that not all the good ratings in the world can save one show.
