Ginny and Georgia, Netflix’s dramedy series, will be returning for a second season.
The streaming giant announced the news on 19th April, with the entire cast reuniting virtually for the exciting development.
Brianne Howey, Antonia Gentry, Diesel La Torraca, Jennifer Robertson and Felix Mallard were among some of the Ginny and Georgia cast who discussed the second season.
The Netflix series became a runaway hit earlier in February, often finding its way into the top 10 on the service.
Fans have been left with plenty of questions following the conclusion of season one, so here’s everything we know so far about Ginny and Georgia season two.
Has Ginny and Georgia been renewed for season 2?
Fans will be pleased to hear that Ginny and Georgia is returning for a second series!
Netflix announced the news via Twitter on Monday 19th April with a video featuring the show’s stars.

“Honestly, we’re just so [stoked] and could not wait to share it with you all!” Felix Mallard, who plays Marcus, says in the video.
“This means more surprises, more living room dance parties and more climbing through windows,” Brianne Howey, Diesel La Torraca and Felix Mallard added.
The dramedy arrived on Netflix back in February and quickly shot into Netflix’s top ten thanks to the show’s viral popularity on social media.
Ginny and Georgia season 2 release date
Season one took four months to film and premiered in February 2021, so we could possibly expect the second season around a year later in February 2022 at the earliest – though continued COVID-19 protocols may well delay the release date by several months.
Ginny and Georgia season 2 cast
The show wouldn’t return without, of course, Antonia Gentry and Brianne Howey as title characters Ginny and Georgia respectively.
Other members of the main cast likely to return include Diesel La Torraca as Georgia’s son Austin, Jennifer Robertson as neighbour Ellen, Felix Mallard as Ginny’s love interest Marcus and Sara Waisglass as Ginny’s best friend Max.
Nikki Roumel will also likely return as a teen Georgia in flashbacks – and she may well be reunited with Kyle Barry as the teenage version of Ginny’s dad Zion, with Nathan Mitchell as the adult Zion.
Ginny and Georgia season 2 trailer
There’s no trailer for season two just yet – expect one nearer release in early 2022.
However, if you’re keen for more mother-daughter drama then aftershow Ginny and Georgia: The Afterparty is streaming on Netflix now and sees the cast unpack season one – see below for a clip:
Will Ginny and Marcus get together?
Despite sleeping together in the series premiere, Ginny and Marcus never officially started dating in season one – so all eyes are on season two to see if the couple finally go the distance. However, it may be some time before that happens given that their night of passion completely broke up MANG – Max still hasn’t forgiven Ginny for going behind her back with Marcus, and ex-boyfriend Hunter no longer wants anything to do with Ginny after finding out.
There’s also the small matter of Ginny and Austin fleeing Wellsbury on a motorcycle at the end of season one. It seems inevitable that the pair will return – but their destination may have pretty big ramifications for season two.
Series star Antonia Gentry told TVLine:”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.”
What will Ginny and Georgia season 2 be about?
As well as Ginny’s dad having a bigger role, the show also seemed to be subtly setting up the return of Austin’s father also. Austin’s absences from school never were explained, and the finale reveals that Ginny did post her brother’s letters to his dad – which really seemed to freak out Georgia for some reason…
The showrunners hinted to EW that even more of Georgia’s murky past will be unravelled – as well as her present, as we should see in season two whether her wedding to handsome mayor Paul Randolph (Scott Porter) actually goes ahead without one of her many secrets spilling out.
Of course, Georgia also has other potential suitors in the form of Ginny’s dad Zion and cafe owner Joe – with actress Brianne Howey telling People that: “I would like [Georgia] to tap into her heart and figure out what she really wants.”
What have the cast and crew said about season 2?
It seems the complicated mother-daughter relationship between Georgia and Ginny will remain the heart of the show – which could lead to some dark places for fifteen-year-old Ginny.
Showrunner Debra J. Fisher told Entertainment Weekly: “We can’t really talk about season 2, but what I will say is, where we always wanted season 1 to end was with Ginny protecting her mom, but by doing so, having blood on her hands.”
Gentry echoed the desire to explore the rougher side of her character Ginny, telling Elle: “I want to see Ginny get down and dirty. I want to see her turn into Georgia a little bit. I want to see her really dig in and show that mean streak I know she has.”
