What will be Ginny & Georgia Season 2 about?

Ginny must figure out how to live with the knowledge that her mother is a murderer. 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.

Synopsis

In an interview with TV Line, Antonia Gentry, who plays Georgia, cleared up the confusion about where Ginny is going.

“When she’s packing her bag, she grabs the book that Zion gives her, and if you were paying attention when Zion arrives and is giving her the book, you know that he included an address. He has that secret coded message in it, and she finds out that it’s his address to his Boston apartment. So I’m thinking it’s pretty reasonable to assume that Ginny might be headed toward Zion.”

The finale also set up the return of Austin’s dad, Gil Timmins, who will be played by new cast member Aaron Ashtone in season 2.

There’s so much going on in the finale, you might have missed it—but we never actually find out what Austin is doing when he misses school, and my guess is that his dad has shown up. Plus, we know that Ginny mailed Austin’s letters to his dad, which seems to really freak out Georgia. “Did you put our return address on?” she demands of Ginny—but then the storyline gets subsumed by, well, everything else that happens in the final episode.

Scott Porter, who plays Mayor Paul, teased that there might be more to his straight-laced character than meets the eye, telling HollywoodLife

“As far as Mayor Paul goes, I have had questions since day one about where he came from because of the things that he says in the show. He went to Brown. He has an Ivy League education, and then he abandoned all of it to travel overseas, backpack, teach English, and get a sense of the world that is much different than a lot of people who try and fast track their way into politics. But then, upon his return to the States, he magically did that. What drives a person like that? He’s multifaceted, yet very direct and focused. So what made him that way? I’m really excited to discover more about his family and where he came from.”

One thing we do know is that the show will not shy away from portraying diverse characters and (some) relatable situations.

One of the best parts about Ginny & Georgia is its refusal to shy away from serious conversations about race, identity, sexuality, and ability. Because Ginny is multiracial in a mostly all-white town, her frustration and inability to fit in is palpable. And her lesbian best friend, Maxine (Sara Waisglass), is shown struggling to date early on in the series as one of the only students at school who’s out. On the other hand, the show also features Maxine’s dad–a deaf character–who spends the entirety of the series just vibing.

Meanwhile, Rebecca Ablack, who plays Padma, told Brown Girl Magazine

“The show does a really great job at writing these young characters that are trying to figure out race and sexuality. I resonated with the discussions between these characters that I had at that age…It’s impossible not to resonate with these characters because I am a woman of color living in a world that is built for whiteness.”

The cast has also opened up about the show’s inclusion of ASL. Waisglass, who plays precocious teenager Maxine, learned the language for the show.

“The inclusion of ASL was like a magical experience, just on a personal note…We literally got to learn a new language for this role,” she said. “It’s absolutely unbelievable and it is inclusive. I just love that aspect of the show. I thought that was such a great thing.”

Ginny & Georgia Stars Tease What You Should Remember Heading Into Season 2

We know it’s been a minute—678 days, to be exact—since season one of Ginny & Georgia was released on Netflix. So, we asked the show’s stars Brianne HoweyAntonia GentrySara Waisglass and Felix Mallard to give us a refresh on what to remember heading into season two, which premieres Jan. 5.

Antonia, who plays mature teenager Ginny Miller, exclusively reminded E! News that when it comes to the show, “two weeks, not two years have passed.”

“That means we pick up right where we left off right with the cliffhanger at the end of season one,” she continued. “So just remember, it feels like a long time, but to them, it isn’t.”

Brianne, who plays the titular Georgia, offered up a similar tease, noting, “We are in the throes of it. I would also say don’t forget Georgia’s real birth name: Mary.”

Season one wrapped with Ginny running away with little brother Austin (Diesel La Torraca) after learning the truth about her stepfather’s death: her mother, Georgia, killed him. And, as season one also revealed, this isn’t the first husband that Georgia has taken out

Of course, there isn’t just turmoil between the mother-daughter duo to recall. Sara, who plays Ginny’s outgoing BFF Max, told E!, “I think the most important thing to remember is that everyone at the end of season one went through some kind of betrayal. And I think that’s very important to take into season two, because everyone’s kind of on their own and figuring out their next steps and how to grow from what just happened.”

Ginny & Georgia’ Boss Teases High Stakes & Relationship Drama in Season 2

TV Insider spoke with showrunner, writer, and executive producer, Debra J. Fisher about what fans can expect from the drama. For those who may need a brief refresher, Ginny & Georgia follows the story of daughter Ginny (Antonia Gentry) and mom Georgia (Brianne Howey), who move from Texas to the wealthy fictional suburb known as Wellsbury, Massachusetts after the sudden death of Ginny’s step-dad and Georgia’s new husband, Kenny Drexel (Darryl Scheelar).

Along with Georgia’s other child, younger son Austin (Diesel La Torraca), the trio begins to plant roots that were being threatened by Season 1’s end when Ginny was informed by a private investigator that it’s believed her mother poisoned Kenny to death, inducing a heart attack. Needless to say, the shock hit her hard, and Ginny bolted with brother Austin in tow.

So, where exactly will Season 2 begin? Fisher says it “picks up two weeks after Season 1 ended when we saw Austin and Ginny drive away on Marcus’s [Felix Mallard] motorcycle after Ginny had learned her mom committed murder.” In other words, according to the showrunner, “they are not in a good place. Ginny and Georgia have not spoken.”

As for where Ginny and Austin end up, Fisher reveals, “they have been at Zion’s [Nathan Mitchell] in Boston.” Zion is Ginny’s biological father, who recently decided to settle in the area to spend more time with her and the family.

But in a show where the mother-daughter relationship is crucial, you can’t keep Ginny and Georgia apart for too long.

We spent all of Season 1 really breaking these two characters down,” Fisher notes, “and then for Season 2, we really spend the whole season building them back up and bringing them back together.”

Still, “the stakes could not be higher because obviously, Georgia is worried,” Fisher points out. “She’s kept that part of her life a secret… she’ll do anything for her kids, but you don’t talk about murder.” But she may not have a choice considering how much Ginny’s been clued into her behavior.

And while the mother-daughter relationship may be in shambles, there are other kinds of relationships to look out for, particularly romantic ones.

This season we really get deeper into those layered romantic relationships,” Fisher confirms. “For Georgia, she and Paul [Scott Porter] are engaged and they’re planning to be married, and Paul is going to be moving in with them. So that brings up a lot of tense moments when there’s a new man in the house.”

Meanwhile, when it comes to Ginny and Marcus, who left their relationship a little up in the air in Season 1, Fisher teases that when Ginny returns home, “she and Marcus get back together and form their bond.” She goes on to add, “this season’s so beautiful in terms of their relationship. It’s one of my favorite things because it just feels so realistic and grounded where they are.”

But just because these bonds are solidifying doesn’t mean it’s all smooth sailing.

Ginny & Georgia’s Brianne Howey Recalls “Intimidating” First Acting Job on 90210

Brianne Howey didn’t have to wait long for a taste of Hollywood success.

After all, the Ginny & Georgia star booked the first ever gig she auditioned for when she nabbed a part on The CW’s 90210 in 2010. But while Brianne was thrilled to make a guest appearance during the show’s third season, it didn’t exactly get off to a smooth start.

“I was so nervous, so intimidated,” Brianne told E! News’ Justin Sylvester and Adrienne Bailon-Houghton. “I remember not knowing where to stand. They were like, ‘Brianne, the actors are standing over here, you can go over there.’ I think I was standing near the crew.”

Brianne eventually figured out where to stand, but she admitted that the experience gave her a false concept of being a working actress in Hollywood.

Because it was my first audition ever, it creates a very misleading idea of what the industry is going to be like,” she explained. “It just seems so easy. What do people complain about?”

Brianne would go on to make guest appearances on shows like The Middle, Revenge and Scream Queens before booking her first series regular role on Fox’s The Exorcist in 2016.

Now, on Netflix’s Ginny & Georgia, Brianne plays Georgia Miller, the 30-year-old mother of 15-year-old daughter Ginny (Antonia Gentry). As it turns out, Brianne didn’t have to look very far for inspiration.

My mom had me at 21,” she revealed. “Super young single mom. As soon as I read the script, it was still shocking and jarring because Georgia is crazy, but it was slightly less jarring because I’ve had conversations like that with my mom when I was younger.”

When Is Ginny & Georgia Season 2 Coming Out?

Netflix has set January 5 for the Season 2 premiere of Ginny & Georgia, starring Brianne Howey and Antonia Gentry.

In spite of being renewed back in April, season two didn’t begin filming until November of 2021, per What’s On Netflix. In mid-October, the show’s Instagram page shared, “Gearing up to film season two let’s take a peek back at filming season one episode one.”

So when can we expect to see it on Netflix? What’s on Netflix reported that its “best estimate right now is that Ginny & Georgia season 2 will squeeze onto Netflix in mid-to-late 2022.”
