Girls5Eva is a musical comedy that tells the story of four women who were part of a girl group that was popular in the year 2000. After achieving one-hit-wonder status, they are all dissatisfied with their lives, which prompts them to reunite to try to recreate their brief success.

The first season of the show had all of the episodes released at once. For Season 2, the first three episodes will be released at once, followed by a weekly episode release.
Said showrunner Meredith Scardino said in a statement, “We are so excited to share the next chapter in Dawn, Wickie, Gloria, and Summer’s journey as they enter ‘Album Mode’ and embark on making their first studio album on their own terms.”
