Netflix's mother-daughter dramedy 'Ginny & Georgia' Season 1 leaves us with more questions than answers. Where have Ginny and Austin run away to? Will Georgia ever see her children again? Will Georgia's embezzlement from the mayor's office finally come to light? So many questions that we need answers to right now!
Let's have a quick recap of the season to understand how we got here. A private investigator tells 16-year-old Ginny that he believes that her mother Georgia, killed Ginny's stepfather, a yoga tycoon. Ginny, who is already tired of the skeletons in the closet, figurative in this case and not literal, then discovers ashes hidden in her mother's cupboard. This prompts her to quickly leave town with her nine-year-old brother Austin.
Ginny and Austin have also found out that Georgia has not been sending the letters Austin has written to his father who is in jail. This will be another interesting development in Season 2. Will Austin's father be able to find Georgia since Ginny has written to him? So what can we expect more of in Season 2 of 'Ginny and Georgia'? Let's find out.
'Ginny & Georgia' premiered on February 24, 2021 on Netflix. There has been no announcement about Season 2 yet. Nonetheless, we're hoping it'll be soon as we have questions to be answered. If the makers give a greenlight in 2021, it might be available for streaming in 2022. Watch this space for more developments.
'Ginny & Georgia' is a mother-daughter dramedy that follows the rather complicated life of Georgia and her two kids. They move to a posh new town called Wellsbury, after the death of Georgia's yoga tycoon husband. But while it initially seems like they are settling in well, secrets from Georgia's past continue to tumble out, creating a distance between Georgia and daughter Ginny and nine-year-old son Austin.
The series ends with Ginny being warned by a private investigator that he believes that Georgia killed Ginny's stepfather. Ginny and her brother then run away from home and their newly engaged mother has no clue. What does this mean for Georgia's future with fiance Paul? Will Georgia's chequered past finally catch up with her? Have Ginny and Austin run to Ginny's father Zion? Well in the midst of any clear answers till next season your guess is as good as ours.
Brianne Howey is positively brilliant in her role as the sweet-talking but steely Georgia. Howey truly comes into her own with this role which requires comic expertise as well as a certain gravitas for the tougher topics that 'Ginny and Georgia' handles. Prior to 'Ginny and Georgia', Brianne Howey is best known for her roles as Reagan in The CW's Batwoman', Kat Rance in 'The Exorcist', and as Candy in the film 'Horrible Bosses 2'.
Debra J Fisher the executive producer of 'Ginny and Georgia' on casting Brianne says, "Brianne was the last to be cast because we had to find someone with just the right balance of beauty that kills you with a smile and stabs you in the chest without seeing it coming. We read and met with so many actresses in the US, Canada, and England. On one of our final casting days, Brianne had just returned from a European vacation and put herself on tape. We watched late Friday evening/early Saturday morning and we immediately had her in the office on Monday to read with Antonia. Once they read together, we knew right away Brianne was our Georgia."
Antonia Gentry certainly had several challenging topics to deal with as she played Ginny. From self-harm to racism, young Ginny has to handle several truly challenging issues. According to director Anya Adams, Antonia also really helped to flesh out Ginny's character. Adams says, "Antonia brought an unbelievable depth of personal experience and was incredibly adept at expressing it through Ginny. She is an amazingly talented actor. Her willingness to jump in and do what was needed for her character was inspiring, and her hard work ethic and unfailing commitment to the project and the character of Ginny inspired those around her and elevated the work we all did."
Prior to 'Ginny and Georgia', 24-year old Antonia was known for her roles on ‘Raising Dion’ and ‘Candy Ja’. Her first ever play performed was an original work written by her mother, so talent clearly runs in this family.
The writers of ‘Ginny and Georgia’ are Debra J Fisher and Sarah Lampert. Debra J Fisher is also one of the executive producers of the show along with Anya Adams, Jen Daly and Dan March. Anya Adams is also the director of 'Ginny And Georgia'.
