Despite solid reviews and a popular star, Michelle Dockery in her follow-up to hit Downton Abbey, TNT’s drama series Good Behavior never found a wide audience. Its Live+same day ratings have been low, a fraction of the second lowest-rated original drama series on the network.
Still, the show has done some solid business in delayed viewing and on digital platforms, drawing younger viewers, and has become a cult favorite. “It has a passionate audience,” TNT and TBS president Kevin Reilly told Deadline following the Turner upfront presentation Wednesday.
But five months after Season 2 of Good Behavior ended its run on TNT, “we haven’t made a final decision” about the series’ future, Reilly said.
“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. 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.”
Asked by Deadline whether that capping off the series means a movie or a final season, Reilly said, “unclear,” adding that, while there are no immediate plans, the idea is “to properly bring it to a conclusion.”
Good Behavior, from writer/showrunner Chad Hodge and Tomorrow Studios, is 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 whose life is always one wrong turn or one bad decision from implosion.
Good Behavior is executive-produced by Hodge, Crouch, along with Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements of Tomorrow Studios, a partnership between ITV Studios and Adelstein.
