Season two of Ginny & Georgia was released on Netflix this week and it is already trending on the streaming service. The show is about a charming mom and her beautiful daughter, who she had at a very young age, and their move to a new town. Romance and crime abound.
Fans are already wondering if there’s a season three on the way. Here’s everything we know so far. Warning: spoilers for season two ahead.
Has Ginny & Georgia been renewed for season 3?
The show’s opening weekend popularity looks good, but the TV landscape is certainly uncertain these days. One of the series’ showrunners, Sarah Lampert, told Deadline, “No, there’s been no talks with Netflix about Season 3. They’re very regimented about how they do things. So there’s very much a strategy in place where I think we’ll drop it, and then we have to wait to see how it does and if we’re going to see Season 3 but I certainly hope we do because it’s going to be a wild ride.”
The show’s creators have said in older interviews that they planned a story arc across four seasons, with a culmination at the end of the fourth. Let’s hope they get it.
What will season three of Ginny & Georgia be about?
Season two ends with Georgia being arrested moments after officially being wed to Paul at their wedding, charged with murdering Cynthia’s husband, Tom. Ginny and Marcus are split up once more, and there’s still a complicated relationship between Georgia and Austin. In the same interview with Deadline, Lampert said she thinks the writers did a good job of setting up the tensions of season three.
“I think we’ve set up a lot of really great possibilities in the sense that, just playing out hypotheticals, if Georgia is being charged with this crime, we have Zion, he’s Ginny’s dad, we have Gill in the picture now,” she said. “I think previous to this, he had no chance at custody because he was a convicted felon but who knows now, and we’ve got Paul, who’s the stepdad. We have so many golden possibilities for storytelling based on how rich these characters are, and based on how many surprises we want to throw into Season 3 that I’m being coy about but we do have it planned out.”
Lampert’s co-creator and showrunner Debra J. Fisher told The Wrap, “We know where Season 3 begins and ends and we know the end game.”
Season one ended with the mother-daughter duo and most other relationships getting broken apart, and Fisher says season two was about bringing them together again.
“This whole season we’ve been bringing Ginny and Georgia back together. And so Ginny, Georgia and Austin — the three of them — are now a unit,” she said. “They’ve gotten past the murdering. They’re together. Ginny’s so helpful in making this wedding happen, they’re united against Gil, and then again, at the very end we tear them apart. We love telling these layered stories and it’s the best part about doing a drama where you have all these balances. As soon as you get them together, here comes something else down the road that’s going to tear them apart, and that’s one of the dimensions and how our show is so layered. It just works in such a beautiful way. I love the way the season ends.”
Who will return to Ginny & Georgia season three?
The best guesses for that are the leads — Brianne Howey and Antonia Gentry. Also Scott Porter as Mayor Paul Randolph, Alex Mallari Jr. as Detective Gabriel Cordova, Sara Waisglass as Maxine, Nathan Miller as Zion, and Diesel La Torraca as Austin.
