After it was announced that Good Girls was canceled, Mae Whitman took to her personal Instagram to post a meme about the news. The meme in question features a headline announcing the cancellation of the series, followed by a screenshot from “Good Girls” of Christina Hendricks shielding Whitman’s eyes with her hands. The implication, of course, is that Whitman wishes someone had stopped her from finding out about the show’s cancellation.
Whitman captioned the image with a few emojis, including one of a woman shrugging and one of a broken heart. Together, the Instagram post offers a humorous but bittersweet response to the news. The show’s cancellation came a little over a month after Whitman tried to save it by urging fans on social media to share their support for the series (via Twitter). Unfortunately, these efforts were in vain.
Following the show’s cancellation, Whitman also wrote in an Instagram Story (via TVLine), “Feeling too sad and confused to look at the phone.” In the same post, Whitman added, “[I] I love my buddies in this cast so much and I love you guys who loved the show. It was such a pleasure to be Annie and I am forever grateful to you for supporting us.” Whitman, in particular, wasn’t the only Good Girls star to share his disappointment with the show’s ultimate fate. In fact, even Hendricks used the same “good girls” meme Whitman used in an Instagram post of her own, in which she wrote, “Well we went all out. We really did it.”
If it wasn’t already obvious enough, Whitman and Hendricks’ social media posts make it undeniable that they not only loved “Good Girls,” but how disappointed they were with the way it ended.
