Netflix today announced a green light for Girls5eva Season 3 and that the streaming service will be the exclusive home for the third season. Netflix has also acquired co-exclusive global streaming rights to the first two seasons of the critically-acclaimed, Emmy Award-nominated comedy.
Girls5eva Season 3 comes from creator, showrunner, and executive producer Meredith Scardino, executive producer Tina Fey and Universal Television.
The series follows a one-hit-wonder girl group from the ’90s who reunite to give their pop star dreams one more shot.
They may be grown women balancing spouses, kids, jobs, debt, aging parents, and shoulder pain, but can‘t they also be Girls5eva?
“Our deepest thanks to Peacock for bringing Girls5eva to life and supporting us creatively at every turn since the first pitch. And we are endlessly grateful to our partners at NBCU for their boundless commitment,” said executive producers Meredith Scardino, Tina Fey, Jeff Richmond & Robert Carlock.
“Today, we are thrilled to announce that our reunited girl group will be re-reunited at Netflix. We are so thankful to everyone at the streamer who fell in love with our music-filled comedy.”
They added: “We cannot wait to introduce Dawn, Wickie, Summer, and Gloria to the global Netflix audience. Well, not fully introduce, if you look closely, Girls5eva can be seen in the background of the Woodstock ’99 documentary setting a porta potty on fire.”
“We are so happy to bring Girls5eva to Netflix,” added Tracey Pakosta, Netflix Vice President of Comedy Series. “Just like the show, we are so excited to reunite with this amazing team.”
Meredith Scardino was Emmy Award-nominated for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for season 1 of Girls5eva. Renée Elise Goldsberry’s celebrated performance garnered her nominations with Critics’ Choice Awards, HCA Television Awards, and TCA Awards.
Both seasons are certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Season two was named one of the best shows of 2022 by Vanity Fair, Vulture, Washington Post and Paste.
