Netflix continues the journey of mother and daughter Ginny and Georgia, renewing the polarizing dramas for the 10-episode series. Watch the video announcements below.
After launching Season 1 on Feb. 24, the series found itself in the grip of a series of negative press coverage of what many consider a stupid race debate on the show, not to mention a certain Taylor Swift-skewering joke that drove a wedge between the pop star and streamer.
Ginny and Georgia follows the complicated dynamics between the thirty years of single mother Georgia (played by Batwomanare Brianne Howey) and her teenage daughter GinnyRaising DionAntonia Gentry) after their relocation to the picturesque New English town of Wellsbury. As they try to start all over again, Georgia’s dark past and secrets follow them to their new home. In the finale of Season 1, Ginny learns that her mom poisoned her stepfather after witnessing him, suggestively placing his hands on Ginny. Knowing the truth about Georgia’s dangerous actions, Ginny did exactly what her mom taught her: she ran away with her little brother.
Otherwise in season, the owner of the cafe Joe (Degrassi: The next generationRaymond Ablack) was about to tell Georgia he felt for her when he found out she was engaged to local mayor Paul (Hart of DixieScott Porter). Meanwhile, Ginny’s relationship with her boyfriend Hunter (Mason Temple) is officially over after he learns that she slept with their schoolmate Marcus (Locke & KeyFelix Mallard). For an insight into these romantic relationships and twists in the finale, check out TVLine’s post-mortem interviews with leading ladies Howey and Gentry.
“That’s how we appreciate the incredible response and love you all showed Ginny and Georgia, “Showrunner Debra J. Fisher and EP creator Sarah Lampert said in a statement. “We are especially grateful to Brianne and Toni, who set the highest ladder at every turn. We can’t wait to return to Wellsbury for season 2. ”
