Netflix’s mother-daughter dramedy Ginny & Georgia officially returns for a second season! In April 2021, the cast — including Brianne Howey, Antonia Gentry, Felix Mallard and Sara Waisglass — announced the renewal of the show’s second season in a sweet video on YouTube. “We are so grateful for the incredible response and love that you all featured ‘Ginny & Georgia,'” showrunner/executive producer Debra J. Fisher and creator/executive producer Sarah Lampert said in a joint statement. “We are particularly grateful to Brianne and Toni, who set the highest standards at every step. We can’t wait to return to Wellsbury for Season 2.”
The show made some big waves — some not so well — with its first season in February 2021. While viewers initially drew some comparisons to Gilmore Girls, the show eventually takes a very different direction from this classic drama. In its first week on Netflix, it climbed the ranks quickly, topping the streamer’s daily leaderboard. The new season will feature 10 new 60-minute episodes and will likely pick up after the big cliffhanger of season one. At the end of season one, teenage girl Ginny decides to run away with her little brother Austin, while Georgia’s shady past threatens to derail her new beginning and her relationship with Mayor Paul Randolph.
On December 1, Netflix released some new stills from the second season, along with a teaser showing Georgia’s reaction when she realizes her daughter knows what she’s done. “This moment is one of the strongest moments for Georgia,” Fisher said, per Tudum. “She usually exudes all that southern charm and warmth on the outside and hides her true, darker self from everyone, especially Ginny. Georgia discovers Wolfsweed in the fireplace and reveals one of her darkest secrets. Ginny now knows the truth – that she is a murderess. “One thing is for sure, it sounds like we’re in for another wild ride.
