Girls5eva fans can now breathe because its renewed for a second season!
This is a sign that Peacock as a great potential as a streaming service. People had been getting weary of Network Television and Netflix because they can shows. Low Ratings can be an understandable reason but there are shows that were doing well but they cancel it anyway. Most Peacock originals had been renewed and the one show that got cancelled is Brave New World. They also picked up some NBC shows that got cancelled. I had high expectations on this show because its produced by Tina Fey and it delivered.
Girls5eva is a Comedy that will give you Nostalgia about the late 90s and early 2000s. It is about a girl group that has broken up for 20 years after the failure of their follow up album. Each member of the group have a personal journey that evolves them as characters. They are also very relatable for people who miss their younger days. The band reunited after 20 years because their hit song resurface after a young rapper sampled it. This gave them an idea to try making a comeback after giving up on their musical dreams.
Girls5eva have an award winning ensemble cast.
Dawn Solano (Sara Bareilles ) is suppose to be the cool on the group. After the break up she ends up being a wife and a mother who works at her brother’s restaurant.
Summer Dutkowsky (Busy Philipps ) Is the sexy and the ditzy one of the group. Now she is a housewife to her former boyband member boyfriend.
Gloria McManus (Paula Pell and Erika Henningsen as the younger version) The youngest member of the group and she is suppose to be the boy crazy one but she ends up coming out as gay. She is currently an overweight divorced dentist.
Wickie Roy (Renée Elise Goldsberry) The most talented one of the group. Her ego is the reason the group broke up because she thought she will be a successful solo artist. She ends up as an airport employee that shoots geese for a living.
Ashley Gold (Ashley Park ) is the heart of the group who keeps them together. Sadly she died twenty years ago in an infinity pool accident.
This is deserving of it’s renewal and I am happy to see another season of it. I hope the second season will show more flashbacks about Ashley.
