Ginny and Georgia fans prepare yourselves: season 2 has officially started filming.
Howey will be returning as single mother Georgia Miller for season 2, while Gentry will also be back as her teenage daughter Ginny.
Also joining the season 2 cast will be Aaron Ashmore (Locke and Key, Smallville), who will reportedly play Gil Timmins (via Deadline), Georgia’s ex and Austin’s father.
Ginny and Georgia season 1 left fans with a number of burning questions as the final credits rolled as things got increasingly complicated for the mother/daughter duo.
After very little news following the show’s renewal in 2021, the series began filming for season 2 in February 2022, as well as giving fans a first look at what’s in store.
According to photos taken from the set, it looks like the second instalment will feature a major wedding.
Images from the set show Georgia (Brianne Howey), the mother in the mother-daughter-duo, wearing all-white wedding outfit and clutching a bouquet of flowers as she sits next to Ginny (Antonia Gentry) as they ride off in a white carriage (via Digital Spy).
This would indicate that Georgia and Ginny have made up after Ginny and younger brother Austin (Diesel La Torraca) stole a motorbike and made off with it, leaving Wellsbury behind them.
However, there’s still no word on the big question: who has Georgia ended up with? She had been showing her support for ex-fiance fiancé and town mayor Paul Randolph (Scott Porter) following the success of his reelection, but there was also chemistry between her and Joe (Raymond Ablack), who had known each other as teens. We'll have to wait for season two to arrive to find out.
Ginny actress Gentry previously teased what fans can expect from season 2.
"It's a roller coaster ride. Even I don't know the full details, but I am on the edge of my seat. I know it's going to be a full package of just excitement and plot, and craziness," she said at the 2021 MTV Awards.
Talking about the show’s large fanbase, she added: "It's been pretty overwhelming to just know that some of the people that you admire have seen the show and like the show. I know Hailey Bieber has seen our show, and that just makes me sweat. It makes me sweat a little bit."
She continued: "But it's very exciting and the support has been really fantastic."

Ginny and Georgia season 2 release date speculation
Ginny and Georgia season 2 does not currently have a confirmed release date.
Season 1 took four months to film and premiered in February 2021, however, it seems filming for the show is still ongoing despite beginning in November 2021.
In March 2022, the show’s Instagram shared: “season two is being filmed right now because of all you who watched.”
We will be sure to update you as soon as we know more, but it seems like we are looking at a release in late 2022 at the very earliest.
When was Ginny and Georgia renewed for season 2?
Fans will be pleased to hear that Ginny and Georgia is returning for a second season.
Netflix announced the news via Twitter on Monday 19th April 2021 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 2021 and quickly shot into Netflix's top 10 thanks to the show's viral popularity on social media.
Forbes reported that in the US Ginny and Georgia broke a record by holding the number one position on Netflix's top 10 chart for 28 days straight - making it even more popular than 2020 smash hit Tiger King.
Ginny and Georgia season 2 cast
The following main cast members of Ginny and Georgia will be back for the second season.
- Brianne Howey as Georgia Miller
- Antonia Gentry as Ginny Miller
- Diesel La Torraca as Austin Miller
- Jennifer Robertson as Ellen Baker
- Felix Mallard as Marcus Baker
- Sara Waisglass as Maxine "Max" Baker
- Scott Porter as Mayor Paul Randolph
- Raymond Ablack as Joe
- Aaron Ashmore as Gil Timmins
Joining the cast for this new season will be Aaron Ashmore, who according to Deadline will play Gil Timmins, Georgia’s ex and Austin’s father.
Meanwhile, 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 Miller, with Nathan Mitchell as the adult Zion.
Ginny and Georgia season 2 plot
It seems Georgia's love life will be a major focal point of the second season.
As well as Ginny's dad having a bigger role, the show also seemed to be setting up the return of Austin's father, who we now know will join the show played by Aaron Ashmore.
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: "I would like [Georgia] to tap into her heart and figure out what she really wants."
Who will Georgia end up with? She has a few options in the form of Paul, Joe, Zion, and Paul!
Talking about where season 2 might take Georgia and Ginny, Howey told UsMagazine.com in November 2021: “Ginny is very savvy. She has learned a lot from Georgia and Ginny has her own plan too."
She continued: “They’re not in the best place, but they have been through so much together. And we see a little bit of that in the flashbacks, nothing can take that foundation away from them."
Speaking about all scripts she had read so far, she added: “Everyone is resonating where you want them to. Everyone is super on-brand and it’s hitting and landing in all the same places. It gets dark."
She did, however, add: “[But it’s also] very charming and funny. And then there’s some really sweet moments.”
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 goes 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 1.
It seems inevitable that the pair will return - but their destination may have pretty big ramifications for season 2.
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."
Gentry added when speaking to Us Weekly: “I think they both need to be protected at all costs because I have to see them get back together."
She added: "I hope to see them really encourage each other. They’re so cute. That means I get to work with Felix even more. He’s fantastic.”
Will Ginny and Marcus go the distance?
What else can we expect from 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."
Is there a Ginny and Georgia season 2 trailer?
Sadly, there's no trailer for season two just yet - expect one nearer release in early 2022.
However, if you're keen on more mother-daughter drama then you can catch up on the aftershow, Ginny and Georgia: The Afterparty, which is available on Netflix and sees the cast unpack season one - see below for a clip:
