Girls5eva makes its long-awaited return for Season 3 in 2024 as the series' beloved cast of actors and their characters continue the story on Netflix.

Initially running on Peacock for its first two seasons, Girls5eva highlighted a one-hit-wonder female band from the 1990s who surprisingly saw a revival after one of their songs was sampled by a new artist.

The series was canceled in June 2022 after its second season premiered, but Deadline confirmed its return on Netflix in October 2022.

Six new episodes premiered on the new network with Season 3's arrival on March 14.

Grammy-winning recording artist and actress Sara Bareilles, who portrays Dawn Solano, is front and center for Girls5eva (both the series and the band).

Describing herself as the "chill one" in the band, she also has experience working at her brother's Italian restaurant. She raises her son alongside her husband while bringing her band back to the forefront. She's also sold her music to other singers to keep an income, although Season 2 sees the group go on a new tour in the final episode while Dawn is pregnant with another child.

Outside of her award-winning career as a popstar and a guest appearance on Community, Bareilles also has several stage credits. This includes the leading role of Jenna Hunterson in The Waitress on Broadway and the West End and roles in The Little Mermaid and Into the Woods

Summer proclaims herself to be the "hot one" in the group, although she felt neglected by her husband before their divorce. She raises her daughter, Stevia, who is an online influencer. She's previously worked as a stripper and even took a job doing shapewear ads on TV before going on tour at the end of Season 2.

Phillips was recently part of the cast of 2024's Mean Girls remake as Regina George's mother, and she also has roles in He's Just Not That Into You, Made of Honor, and CougarTown.

Known as the "fierce one" of the group, she sometimes puts on a front of living a glamorous life while taking jobs such as working at an airport after separating from her wife. Season 3 sees Wickie push the group to new heights, even suggesting they act as their own promoters to gain more demand for their music.

Goldsberry had five episodes of work as Mallory Book in Marvel Studios' She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, and she's also recognizable for her roles in Hamilton, Tick, Tick...BOOM!, and The Good Wife.

After the group initially broke up in 2000, Gloria took on work as a dentist and looks forward to going on tour again as the self-proclaimed "always working one." However, this comes with concerns that her girlfriend, Caroline, will cheat on her if she leaves for this new endeavor, which follows a divorce from her first wife.

Pell spent 25 years as a writer on Saturday Night Live, and her other credits include Inside Out, 30 Rock, and Birdman.

John Lutz - Percy
