Ginny and Georgia Season Two Review


Ayden Laughhunn, Staff Reporter

The Netflix series Ginny and Georgia is back for season two, which means more teen drama, questionable parenting moments, and of course, more hair-rising secrets to unravel. When we last left the dysfunctional Miller family, Ginny, played by Antonia Gentry, and her little brother, played by Austin Disel La Torraca, were hightailing it out of Wellsbury on a motorbike in hopes of getting as far away as possible. They tried to flee from mother dearest Georgia, played by Brianne Howey, and her glitter-coated web of lies and secrets. From lying about sending Austin’s letters to his dad in prison to taking out credit cards in her children’s names, Georgia has always done what it takes to survive to the detriment of her children. By the end of season one, Ginny and Austin have had enough of Georgia, whom we learned through the series of grim flashbacks has been something of Bonnieesque criminal since she was a teen as a means of survival.

Season two picks up shortly after the events of season one finale. Our titular mother-daughter duo is not exactly thriving. Ginny is still reeling from the discovery that her mom is a murderer, naturally, but she’s also trying to cope with her normal teen drama on top of it all.    “MANG,” her first ever real friends, cut her off completely after finding out about her and Marcus, played by Felix Mallard, and their secret romance. Meanwhile, Georgia, although newly engaged and the soon to be First Lady of Wellsbury, is not feeling too celebratory without her kids in the house. There has always been tension between Ginny and Georgia. Their complex dynamic is arguably the most compelling aspect of the series, but season two finds the mother-daughter duo more distant than ever before.
