The wait is almost over! We share what time Ginny & Georgia season 2 is coming out on Netflix. Plus details of plot and cast members.

The show follows a 30-year-old single mother Georgia Miller and her two children, 15-year-old Ginny and nine-year-old Austin. After a series of dramatic events that kept the family on the move for over a decade, Georgia resolves to settle down in New England with her children. The first season mainly explored the cracks in Ginny’s relationship with her secretive mother, but the show also tackled issues such as race, self-harm, sexual consent and body image.

Along with hit Netflix shows such as Wednesday (opens in new tab), Dead to Me (opens in new tab) and it's spin-off Firefly Lane (opens in new tab), the first season proved a hit with viewers. More than 52 million households viewed the series in its first 28 days. But with the release date almost here, people want to know what time is Ginny & Georgia season 2 coming out and will there be a season 3 (opens in new tab)?

What time is Ginny and Georgia season 2 coming out?

Ginny & Georgia season 2 will be released at 8am on Netflix, on January 5 2023. Netflix confirmed the official release date on December 1 last year, marking just over a month to go before it hits screens.

Viewers didn't have to wait long after series one to learn that the show had been renewed. Netflix confirmed that the show would be back for a second season on April 19 2021, though filming didn't begin much later - in November 2021.

Fast forward to this year and September 2022, when executive producer and writer Debra J Fisher confirmed that filming had finished via TikTok (opens in new tab)

She said: "Here's what I know and what I can tell you: we just wrapped. So what does that mean? It will take Netflix 14 weeks to dub Ginny and Georgia into all the non-English speaking languages."

Fisher added: "Without getting an official word from Netflix, that takes us to the end of the year."

And it looks like her prediction was pretty accurate, matching up with the January release date.

A new addition to the cast for Ginny & Georgia season 2 will be Aaron Ashmore, who will play Gil Timmins - Georgia’s ex and Austin’s father.

In an interview with ELLE, (opens in new tab) Ginny actress Toni Gentry said of season 2: "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. That would be really fun to explore."

She added to Seventeen (opens in new tab) last year: "For season 2, the stakes are much higher now - obviously - than we left off with season 1. So, I think fans will be in for a lot of wonderful tension, a lot of building up to climax, and a couple of interesting characters will be revealed. I can't say a lot about it right now, but I can't wait for us to go back filming, which is very, very soon. I'm just really ready. I miss all my castmates."

And when Georgia actress Brianne Howey was asked if a mother-daughter reunion was on the cards for season 2, she said: "Of course they can. I need them to, yes."

Scott Porter, who plays Mayor Paul, teased that there might be more to his character than meets the eye, telling Hollywood Life: (opens in new tab) "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."

What will Ginny and Georgia season 2 be about?

Season one left viewers with a lot of loose ends, but judging by the trailer, we can make a few guesses as to what can be expected from Ginny & Georgia season 2. It looks like Ginny is spending time with her dad, Zion, while Austin's dad makes an appearance for the first time too. 

And it seems Ginny and Marcus are going strong, despite the fact that their will-they-won't-they relationship was on the rocks at the end of season one. There's also the issue of Ginny’s friend Max, who was furious with Ginny for sleeping with her twin, Marcus, and lying about it. This led to Ginny's friendship group, 'MANG' splitting - something else we’re sure to see develop in season two. 

The previous season ended with Ginny and Austin fleeing Wellsbury on a motorbike after the PI hired by Kenny's ex-wife ambushed Ginny at the Blue Farm Café and told her that her mum was a killer. 

Toni Gentry has all but confirmed that Ginny is following her dad, Zion. She said: "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."

Meanwhile, Austin still hadn't forgiven Georgia for not sending the letters he had written to his dad. So his relationship with his Georgia was also on rocky ground, setting up the return of his dad in season 2. 

At the end of season 1, Georgia had no idea that her kids had left because she was busy celebrating the re-election of her fiancé, Mayor Paul - will she go and find them? Or will they come back on their own?

And it seems like the mother-daughter relationship will be at the heart of Ginny & Georgia season 2, as Netflix's description for the show reads: "How do you live with the knowledge that your mother is a murderer? That's what Ginny is going to have to figure out. 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…"

Georgia actress Brianne Howey has shared her thoughts on the new season. She said: “Ginny is very savvy. She has learned a lot from Georgia and Ginny has her own plan too.

“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. Especially even pre-Austin, it really was just Ginny and Georgia and they were so young. They didn’t have anything. Georgia didn’t have any money, she didn’t have any resources or tools.”

Hinting at what's in store in the next series, 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.

“[But it’s also] very charming and funny. And then there’s some really sweet moments.”

It’s expected season 2 will pick up where it left off, with Ginny and Austin on the road. 

How many episodes of Ginny and Georgia season 2?

Ginny and Georgia season 2 will consist of ten episodes, and each will run for around 60 minutes. As is typical of Netflix, all the episodes will be available to watch from the release date.

Meanwhile, you can watch the first season (opens in new tab) - which landed on Netflix on February 2021 - to make sure you're all caught up with the lives of Ginny & Georgia in time for the season 2 release.

Where is Ginny and Georgia filmed?

The show is set in the fictional city of Wellsbury, Massachusetts, but Ginny & Georgia was actually filmed in Toronto and Cobourg, Ontario in Canada
