Season 1 left us hanging with so many questions, we need season 2 ASAP!
'Ginny & Georgia' is Netflix's newest viral sensation! The show has managed to steal the number one spot in Netflix's top 10 in numerous territories, including the US, Australia, and Germany as of March 17, 2021.
The series follows the unconventional mother and daughter relationship between a 15-year-old Ginny, who is more mature than her 30-year-old mother Georgia.
The show's enormous success is impressive despite swirling in controversy after Taylor Swift called it out for including a "lazy, deeply sexist joke" about her.
With this amazing record, can we expect season 2 to happen? Let's find out.
Renewal Status: pending
There's no renewal announcement as of the moment, but our radar is telling us it's coming.
Netflix often takes at least a month before renewing a show, even in the case of big hits like 'Bridgerton'.
We are expecting to get a renewal announcement in the upcoming weeks. We will immediately update this article once we get the renewal announcement, so make sure to check back from time to time.
By the end of season 1, it seemed like Georgia managed to get away with the murder of her ex-husband after using fireworks to dispose of his ashes. However, Cordova isn't giving up.
On the other hand, Ginny took Marcus' bike to run away from home together with Austin.
The first season left us with so many questions that need to get answered for season 2. Did Ginny and Austin run away? To where? And what's going to happen with Ginny and Marcus' relationship? Will they be able to make it work?
If that's not enough love struggles, will Georgia's wedding with the mayor happen?
Thank heavens, star Antonia Gentry gave us some much-needed clarification to some of our questions.
In an interview with TV Line, Gentry revealed where Ginny is going.
"When she’s packing her bag, she grabs the book that Zion gives her, and if you were paying attention when Zion arrives and is giving her the book, you know that he included an address. He has that secret coded message in it, and she finds out that it’s his address to his Boston apartment. So I’m thinking it’s pretty reasonable to assume that Ginny might be headed toward Zion."
The finale could also be teasing the introduction of Austin's dad in the second season. We never figured out what Austin is doing when he skips school, and there are theories that his dad has shown up. We already know that Ginny mailed Austin's letters to his dad, making Georgia freak out, asking, "Did you put our return address on?"
One thing is certain, the second season will continue to dig on serious conversations about identity, race, sexuality, and ability. Ginny has been having a hard time trying to fit in a town with mostly white people.
Gentry has been very happy with the series' commitment to inclusion. She tells W Magazine:
“When I was growing up, I never saw a biracial lead. I didn’t see interracial couples or narratives often displayed in television or movies, and that was something I didn’t realize I wish I had until later on.”
In a separate interview with Elle, she revealed that "It wasn’t until I got to college that I understood some of the things my friends may have said to me—not really knowing they were actually hurting me. A lot of time, it’s a retroactive understanding of and processing of these kinds of microaggressions or tokenizing. And I think the show includes it that way."
Meanwhile, lesbian BFF Maxine has some serious dating struggles at the beginning of the series. Hopefully, she'll catch up on her romantic frustrations in season 2.
The show is not renewed yet so the official casting list is still not available. However, the season 1 main cast is likely to return should the show get renewed for another season.
The season 1 cast included:
Brianne Howey as Georgia Miller, 30-year-old single mom of Ginny and Austin. Nikki Roumel plays the teenage version of the character.
Antonia Gentry as Ginny Miller, Georgia's more matured teenage daughter
Diesel La Torraca as Austin Miller, Ginny's half-brother and Georgia's 9-year-old son and
Jennifer Robertson as Ellen Baker, the mother of twins Marcus and Max
Felix Mallard as Marcus Baker, Ginny's love interest
Sara Waisglass as Maxine "Max" Baker, Ellen's openly lesbian teenage daughter and Ginny's new best friend
Scott Porter as Mayor Paul Randolph, Georgia's love interest
Raymond Ablack as Joe, owner of Blue Farm Cafe'
While we continue to wait for further season 2 announcements for 'Ginny & Georgia', let's take a look at the first season's official trailer. 'Ginny & Georgia' is available for streaming on Netflix.
