Good Girls (Season Three)
‘Good Girls’ is back! The suburban mothers have come a long way since season one when, as disgruntled Michigan women they decided to rob a supermarket. The unlikely ‘criminals’ believe they are able to finally move on after the gun challenge in the season two finale with Rio, ended with Rio being out of the picture. As they attempt to move on and get jobs on the side, new characters are introduced and the women find themselves dealing with issues not wrapped up in season two after all. NBC/Netflix have announced a season four is in production so expect a big cliffhanger but lots of laughs and cringe in the meantime in the eleven-episode comedy crime drama.

The documentary that follows college league American footballers on and off-screen in their lives and their journeys returns with a trip to Laney.

The first two seasons of the show followed events at East Mississippi Community College before the action was shifted to Independence Community College in Kansas for seasons three and four.

This is likely to land sometime in 2021 so, watch this space.
