Netflix's 'Ginny & Georgia' Season 2 Plans - Show's Creators Talk What's to Come (Spoilers)

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!

Ginny & Georgia is already shaping up to be one of Netflix‘s next big shows, and already, fans are wondering about whether a second season is on the way for the mother-daughter dramedy.

The first season follows teenager Ginny (Antonia Gentry) and her mother, Georgia (Brianne Howey), as they settle in a new town, hoping for a fresh start – but the secrets in Georgia’s past may jeopardize their future.

The creators of the show chatted with O Magazine about what to expect with a potential Season 2.

“We always knew we wanted to build to that cliffhanger. Everything else in the middle was a fun discovery,” showrunner Debra J. Fisher explained, going on to say that, if renewed, a new season would explore the fallout of Ginny’s decision to run away from her mother, Georgia, with her little brother Austin (Diesel La Torraca) in tow.

“She’s doing exactly what her mother does: Always running,” the showrunner went on to explain.

“Season 1 really did feel like a season 1. We just started uncovering some of the layers for all characters, across the board, that we want to dive into. Deb and I are hoping we get the chance,” creator Sarah Lampert adds.

The creators also discussed casting for the show, explaining that Antonia was found quickly, but Brianne took longer.

“It was on our very last day. We were supposed to have all these decisions made. Then we received a very late tape one night from Brianne Howey who had just returned from Europe, getting engaged to her fiancé [Matt Ziering]. We watched it and we were like, we have to have this woman come in and read with Tony (Antonia) right away.”

Among the many things to explore in another season is the mother-daughter relationship itself and the many revelations about their family: Ginny has to grapple with the fact that her mother killed her last husband, Kenny, for instance.

“The relationship between Ginny and Georgia is the third character in the show. It lives on its own. It’s constantly changing and evolving. There are so many scenes where the two of them are communicating with each other over everyone’s head. They’re intrinsically wound,” said Sarah.

Ginny’s experience as a biracial woman also creates a divide between the two.

“Ginny is going through the world in a different way than Ginny is and Georgia can’t ever grasp that. In the same way, Ginny can’t understand the trauma and sacrifices Georgia went through to get Ginny to Wellsbury. There’s a lot of room for them to hurt each other’s feelings with what they can’t understand about each other,” she explained.

Although Season 2 has not yet been confirmed, it is likely that it wouldn’t come out until 2022.

The creators also addressed those Gilmore Girl comparisons.

Netflix Reveals Trailer for New Series 'Ginny & Georgia' - Watch!

The trailer for Ginny & Georgia is here!

The upcoming new series stars Brianne Howey and newcomer Antonia Gentry as the title characters, and premieres February 24 on Netflix.

Here’s a synopsis: Angsty and awkward fifteen year old Ginny Miller (Gentry) often feels she doesn’t measure up to her thirty year old mother, the irresistible and dynamic Georgia Miller (Howey). Growing up on the move, Georgia desperately wants to put down roots in picturesque New England and give her family something they’ve never had…a normal life. But it’s not all carpool and Kombucha as Georgia’s past follows them to threaten her and her family’s fresh start.

“As a young girl, I always wanted to watch a TV show that had a heroine who looked like me and Ginny was finally THAT GIRL!” director and producer Anya Adams shared.

“Her story was compelling and exciting and I wanted to be a part of bringing that to life. The opportunity to be part of creating a coming-of-age series with an all-female creative team that is centered on a mixed-race young woman was ultimately the draw for me.”

“We wanted Ginny & Georgia to be a fun, feel-good ride about women, by women, for everyone; one that depicted a nuanced and complicated mother-daughter relationship, and layered female friendships in a way that isn’t always seen in shows,” showrunner Debra J. Fisher added.

These Netflix shows also just got renewed.

Lupita Nyong'o Says Taylor Swift Helped Her Through a Hard Time

Taylor Swift holds a special place in Lupita Nyong’o‘s heart!

While promoting her new movie Little Monsters at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival, the 35-year-old Oscar-winning actress revealed how one of the 29-year-old singer’s helped her get through a difficult time in her career.

“I was going through a hard time professionally, and I was just in a funk,” Lupita said. “I was working abroad, and my best friend came to cheer me up. He played ‘Shake It Off’ on his phone, and we just had a dance party in my bedroom.”

In the film, Lupita plays a kindergarten teacher who needs to protect her students from a zombie apocalypse. Her character then sings “Shake It Off” while playing the ukulele to keep the kids calm.

“It meant a lot to me that this film had that [song],” Lupita added. “And so when I heard that they were having a hard time [getting the rights] I wrote Taylor Swift myself and asked her, and told her that story. And she said yes!”

Also pictured inside: Lupita and co-stars Josh Gad, Charlie Whitley, Diesel La Torraca, and Alexander England along with director Abe Forsythe attending the Little Monsters premiere after attending the IndieWire Studio Presented by Dropbox at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival earlier in the day on Tuesday (January 29) in Park City, Utah.
