I think most of us who watched the show, unfortunately saw it coming. The cancellation was just announced on Instagram by creator/executive producer Chad Hodge.“With a heavy heart I have to let you know that Good Behavior will not return for a third season on TNT,” he wrote.
According to Deadline despite solid reviews, 'Good Behavior' never found a wide audience. Its Live+same day ratings were low, a fraction of the second lowest-rated original drama series on the network. Still, the show did strong in delayed viewing and on digital platforms, drawing younger viewers, and became a cult favorite. “It has a passionate audience,” TNT and TBS president Kevin Reilly said in May.
“I don’t see multiple more seasons of it but there could be a way to cap that off for the audience that really loved it,” Reilly said back then. “Right now it’s not in the planning stages, but we have talked to the producers. If I can get the real estate and the cash flow going to cap it off properly we’d figure it out.”
Indeed, talks continued over the past few months over ways “to properly bring it to a conclusion,” as Reilly put it in May but there were unsuccessful.
'Good Behavior' was based on a series of books by Blake Crouch. It also stars Juan Diego Botto, Terry Kinney and Lusia Strus. It tells the story of Letty Raines (Dockery), a thief and con artist who becomes involved with a hitman, Javier Pereira (Juan Diego Botto).
“I’ve always said I could write about Letty and Javier for 500 episodes,” Hodge wrote. “Their relationship and place in the world live on the edge of something unique and beautiful and I’m more proud of creating their story than anything in my TV career thus far.”
