Premiered on February 24, 2021, Ginny & Georgia is an American comedy-drama television series created by Sarah Lambert and run by Debra Fisher. In the span of 10 episodes, the first of this comedy televised the demise of Georgia’s husband and the pair leaving Texas to move into a new town for a new chapter. The series broached upon a slew of themes ranging from crime, race, marriage, friendships, and self-harm, through the apt depiction of the mother-and-daughter duo.
A coming-of-age teen drama, Ginny & Georgia is about an “angsty, awkward 15-year-old Ginny Miller (who) often feels more mature than her 30-year-old mother, the irresistible, dynamic Georgia Miller. After years on the run, Georgia desperately wants to put down roots in picturesque New England and give her family something they’ve never had: a normal life.”
Ever since its premiere on Netflix, the second season of this comedy-drama has rightfully made its place in the Netflix top 10s. This leads to the brewing question in the minds of the fans: will there be a third season of Ginny & Georgia? There’s no information regarding the renewal of the third season as of yet. However, there’s no reason to be down in the dumps right now, because we have compiled all the latest information that we could gather on Ginny & Georgia season 3. So continue reading to expand your knowledge pool.
Is Ginny and Georgia officially renewed for a third season?
Dethroning Netflix’s smash hit crime thriller, Kaleidoscope, Ginny & Georgia season 2 has ascended to the top of the streaming giant’s charts. Although the show has gained massive popularity with the promising second season, the show has not been renewed for a third season as of yet. However, What’s on Netflix contends that “Ginny & Georgia will likely be getting a third season, given its early performance.”
When it comes to the renewal of any season, Netflix takes into consideration a variety of factors that determine the fate of the show, including viewing hours, number of people watching, completion rates, and more. However, the streaming giant continues to maintain discretion regarding the determining factors that are at play for renewing the season.
In a conversation with Deadline, one of the showrunners for the series, Sarah Lampert revealed that a renewal decision hadn’t been made. She said:
“… 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.”
What is the overall performance of Ginny & Georgia season 2 on Netflix?
In the first week of season 2’s release, the show was 200M hours away from beating season 1; once that happens, all the ambiguity of the renewal will be washed away and the fans will get one more treat from the creators of the show. Not only that, but the reports also point to the increased viewership of season one ever since season 2 premiered.
As reported by What’s on Netflix, “Season 1 picked up 44.37 million additional hours in the week that season 2 was released.” What’s more, the Top 10 report for the week ending January 8th, Ginny & Georgia was touted to be “the best launch for a returning English-speaking series released on a Thursday.”
The reason why this coming-of-age drama has harnessed its own devoted audience is its proclivity to fuse the mother-daughter dynamics on-screen with a murder mystery, suspense, moral ambiguity, friendship, and its related themes. According to RadioTimes, more than 52 million member households watched the first season in its first 28 days of premiere. Moreover, it ascended to make the top 10 list in 87 countries across the globe.
What to expect from Ginny & Georgia Season 3?
The second season of the coming-of-age teen drama explored Georgia’s past including her disturbing history with Austin’s father Gil (Aaron Ashmore) with his reentry into the frame from his prison. Running parallel to Georgia’s story, we find Ginny struggling to accept her mother’s identity as a murderer with the MANG, her group of high school girlfriends, falling out. Amidst all of this chaos, Ginny battles to maintain her mental health.
According to showrunner and executive producer Debra J. Fisher, the scene is powerful enough to reveal the vulnerable side of Georgia that is seldom featured. She said, “That moment is one of the most powerful moments for Georgia…Typically, she’s all that Southern charm and warmth on the outside and hiding her true darker self from everyone, especially Ginny. Georgia discovering the wolfsbane in the fireplace reveals one of her darkest secrets. Ginny now knows the truth – that she’s a murderer. But for Georgia, for better or worse, at her core, she will do anything for her kids. So, we felt it was one of the most powerful ways we could see that reaction we were craving.”
Fisher says, “Georgia is such a mama bear and so protective of her children, [but] also simultaneously [has] this indignation of, ‘Look what I would do for you. These are the lengths I will go to protect you, and now, once you see the inner me, you leave?!’…Georgia is pissed for better or worse.”
Season two ends on a cliffhanger with the wedding being cut short as Gabriel and the police crash into the venue and Georgia is arrested. Under what charge? She allegedly murdered Cynthia’s husband, Tom. What?! I mean, who in the world would have thought that season 2 would end on such a flabbergasting note?
In an interview with DigitalSpy, Nathan Mitchell, who reprised the role of Zion Miller, said:
“I’d love to see where things go with Simone. I think it’s always fun when you throw Georgia in the mix there, where you have those three together, and have them navigate this new dynamic that they exist in.”
On a more romantic front of the series, this is what Antonia Gentry and Felix Mallard had to say about their characters’ relationship, with E! Online, “I think they’ll always be in each other’s lives… They have something extremely special: They have an understanding between each other, and that no one else really has.”
In conversation with The Wrap, Debra Fisher teased, “We know where Season 3 begins and ends and we know the end game.”

But that will only happen if we’re lucky.
