The second season of the acclaimed tv series Ginny & Georgia is on its way. Fans of the show are excited after the nail bitter cliffhanger of an ending the first season had. The series creator and producer Sarah Lampert said for the coming season ‘’We wanted to pick up the story right where we left off. We left it off on such a juicy cliffhanger… We spent all of Season 1 breaking these characters down and putting them in certain places. So, we wanted to honor that by picking up Season 2 just two weeks later. We jumped right back into where we emotionally left everyone at the end of Season 1.”
Netflix had many successes the last year, with the first season of Ginny & Georgia being a success from a few years ago. So far the series has been nothing but joy, and finally, we will have some answers (and probably many more questions) by the end of the second season.
Ginny & Georgia Season 2: the Plot
After all the revelations, Ginny has abandoned her mother along with her younger brother, in the finale of the first season, betraying her and her trust, though not unreasonably. Her mother, Georgia just had the most beautiful night, after the re-election of her fiance as a mayor.
”How do you live with the knowledge that your mother is a murderer?” teased the series logline. “That’s what Ginny is going to have to figure out. Burdened with the new understanding that Kenny — her step-dad — didn’t die of natural causes, now Ginny must deal with the fact that Georgia not only killed, she killed to protect Ginny. Georgia on the other hand would much prefer that the past be left in the past, after all, she’s got a wedding to plan! But the funny thing about Georgia’s past is that it never stays buried for long.”

Ginny & Georgia Season 2 Release Date
The second season of the show is going to be released on January 5, 2023, on Netflix. Ginny & Georgia was renewed for a second season in April 2021 and the first trailer dropped in December 2022.
While a small town setting, generational trauma, single-parent families’ struggles, and mother/daughter relations are not really original, Ginny & Georgia handles them expertly. The humor and the drama are combined in a beautiful way, making it look simple. We can not wait to see the way the show will resolve the friction between the characters, and how they will handle the revelations of the past.
