The show achieved widespread acclaim, reaching the top of the Apple Podcasts charts and earned the 2024 Ambie Award for “Best True Crime Podcast.” Its popularity also caught the attention of A24 Studios, which has optioned the podcast for a television adaptation.

“After seeing how well-received the first season was, we realized that the story wasn’t over just yet and we’re eager to hear how fans enjoy the new season, ” says Max O’Brien, Chief Content Officer from Novel. “The stories from within The Girlfriends universe are precisely the kind we love to tell: compelling, rich and emotionally resonant. We’re honoured that iHeart, Carole and the team have trusted us with bringing season two of this phenomenal show to life.”

Will Pearson, President of iHeartPodcasts added: “We’re excited to have Carole Fisher and her team back for season two of The Girlfriends to delve deeper into the mystery surrounding Jane Doe.
