Ginny & Georgia, a comedy-drama TV show, has become very popular with high school students. Recently, the second season was released on Netflix on Jan. 5 after two years of filming. Since 2021, watchers like myself have been eager and excited for the new season to drop. Season two consists of 10 episodes, each 50-60 minutes long.

Normally when I get hooked on a TV show, they start to get dull as more seasons are released, and eventually, I stop watching. However, this was not the case with Ginny & Georgia. Season 1 starts off with Georgia relocating her two children to Massachusetts following the death of her husband Kenny. Her daughter, Ginny, starts making genuine friendships while Georgia becomes involved in the local government. The season ends with Ginny and Georgia fighting over Georgia’s secretive murderous past. Lastly, the audience is left on a cliffhanger after Ginny decides to run away with her little brother, Austin, to get away from their mother. 

The producers did an excellent job at building up character development, context, drama, and a cliffhanger at the end of season 1. In season 2, they did a great job at building up the plot from there. 

A couple of major things that were different about season two was that there was much more depth into Ginny, Georgia, Ginny’s boyfriend Marcus, and even Ginny’s friends. Viewers learned of the personal battles and backgrounds that make them who they are, which included Marcus’s depression, Ginny’s self-harm, and Georgia’s difficult past. 

The backshadowing into Georgia’s past was a key part of keeping watchers interested and building on the plot. This assisted in her character development and kept me watching and trying to predict what would happen next. 

Another thing I really loved was the names of the episodes. In the beginning, they didn’t make total sense. However, at the end of each episode, I began to understand its relevance of it.  For example, episode 9 was named “Kill Gill” 

Towards the end of the season, Georgia decides that if she is going to marry her recently engaged fiance, Paul, she has to tell him about her secretive past. Shortly after telling him, he decides to still marry her. In a series of events, I wasn’t expecting, in the middle of the ceremony, the police barge in and arrest Georgia for one of her murders that they finally cracked down on. After that, the episode ends leaving the audience on yet another masterful cliffhanger.

Overall, I love and highly recommend this new season and would rate it a 10/10. It expressed lots of drama and realistic scenarios in high school students’ and even adults’ lives.
