Netflix’s mother-daughter dramedy “Ginny & Georgia” is officially returning for a second season! In April 2021, the cast — including Brianne Howey, Antonia Gentry, Felix Mallard, and Sara Waisglass — announced the show’s season two renewal in a sweet video on YouTube. “We are so appreciative of the incredible response and love you all have shown ‘Ginny & Georgia,'” showrunner/executive producer Debra J. Fisher and creator/executive producer Sarah Lampert said in a joint statement. “We’re especially grateful to Brianne and Toni, who set the highest bar every step of the way. We can’t wait to return to Wellsbury for Season 2.”
The show made some big waves — some not so good — with its first season in February 2021. While viewers initially drew some comparisons to “Gilmore Girls,” the show eventually takes off in a very different direction from that classic drama. In its first week on Netflix, it quickly rose to nab the top spot on the streamer’s daily rankings. The new season will feature 10 new 60-minute episodes and will likely pick up after season one’s big cliffhanger. At the end of season one, teenage Ginny decides to run away, along with her little brother, Austin, while Georgia’s shady past threatens to derail her fresh start and her relationship with Mayor Paul Randolph.
On Dec. 1, Netflix released some new stills from the second season, as well as a teaser that showcases Georgia’s reaction as she realizes her daughter knows what she’s done. “That moment is one of the most powerful moments for Georgia,” Fisher said, per Tudum. “Typically, she’s all that Southern charm and warmth on the outside and hiding her true darker self from everyone, especially Ginny. Georgia discovering the wolfsbane in the fireplace reveals one of her darkest secrets. Ginny now knows the truth — that she’s a murderer.” One thing is for sure: it sounds like we’re in for another wild ride.
