EXCLUSIVE: Anna Camp Speaks Out About 'Shocking' 'Good Girls Revolt' Cancellation
By Philiana Ng
Anna Camp is speaking out about the cancellation of Amazon’s Good Girls Revolt, just weeks after it debuted on the streaming service.
“It was super shocking,” Camp, 34, told ET's Lauren Zima about the surprising decision. “Good Girls Revolt -- it's a hit! It actually is still a hit. It was canceled, surprisingly, 35 days after its release, and we don't really know why.”
In Good Girls Revolt, Camp plays Jane Hollander, a female researcher at News of the Week at the beginning of the women’s rights movement in 1969, who -- along with her young female colleagues -- asks to be treated and paid fairly in the workplace.
“There's no clear answer,” she said of why the show got the axe, adding that there’s still hope for the series to live on.
“Other networks are sniffing around and are very interested, so we're hoping it will have a second season,” Camp added. “It was a great show and still is -- and keep watching it, because who knows? We might get a second season!”
In August, Camp spoke to reporters at the summer Television Critics Association press tour about the differences between her real life and her on-screen character.
“It’s fascinating because my character is going towards her career, where I’m going more towards the family of it all, so it’s kind of a juxtaposition,” Camp said of Jane’s arc. “It’s been interesting to play that, definitely.”
Good Girls Revolt, which launched Oct. 28, also starred Erin Darke, Chris Diamantopoulos, Hunter Parrish, Joy Bryant, Grace Gummer and Jim Belushi. Good Girls Revolt is currently streaming on Amazon Prime.
