Peacock Picks Up Girls5eva For Season 2
Peacock announced today that its comedy series Girls5eva had been renewed for another round. Season one of the series reached "Certified Fresh" status on Rotten Tomatoes, with the Top Critic rating remaining at 100%. All eight episodes of season one are streaming now on Peacock.
"We are so excited to continue 'Girls5eva' alongside this incredibly talented group of cast and producers," said Lisa Katz, President, Scripted Content, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming. "It was hard to miss the immediate fandom that was born after the launch of this series. This aspirational comeback story is filled with heart and friendship, perfectly blended with catchy-songs and humor, and delivered by an exceptionally versatile cast. We look forward to following this group's journey as they continue to hit just the right notes."
When a one-hit-wonder girl group from the 90's gets sampled by a young rapper, its members 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?
