We started to think Ginny & Georgia season 2 would never hit screens.

Fortunately, Netflix restored our faith in the dramedy at long last by providing a sneak peek of the sophomore installment and a release date. You can let out that collective sigh of relief now. 

When the series premiered in February 2021, it immediately drew comparisons to Gilmore Girls (though in fact Lorelai and Rory's story is not terribly similar). Thirty-year-old Georgia (Brianne Howey) sets her sights on putting down roots in a New England suburb, something that her 15-year-old daughter, Ginny (Antonia Gentry), and young son, Austin (Diesel La Torraca), never had. 

As the debut season trudged on, and once we were left with that shocking Ginny & Georgia ending, it appeared that the quintessential family life Georgia had hoped for might not be a reality.

In October 2022 while at the GO Gala red carpet event, Brianne Howey reassured fans that all cliffhangers would be addressed

"Soon, it's coming," she told E! News about the second season. "I swear, it's coming."

What is the release date for 'Ginny & Georgia' Season 2?

Ginny & Georgia season 2 will drop on Netflix on January 5, 2023. Make sure to mark your calendars accordingly! (And yes, there are plenty new 2023 planners for you to choose from—gotta keep that screen time in check!)

How many episodes will there be in 'Ginny & Georgia' season 2?

According to the show's creator Sarah Lampert, fans will be treated to 10 episodes in the new season. Trust us when we say there's a lot to unpack. And undoubtedly there will be another killer Ginny & Georgia soundtrack to look forward to. (See what we did there?)

'Ginny & Georgia' season 2 sneak peek

Netflix graciously provided a look at what's to come for the crew thanks to a bundle of newly-released photos. By scanning the imagery, we can tell that Ginny and her brother do make their way home at some point—season 1 ended with their motorcycle exit after Georgia has poisoned their stepfather. (We told you it's not like Gilmore Girls!)

Additionally, we have Ginny reuniting with her love interest, Marcus, and other friends at school. Plus, we have a look at Georgia moving on with her newly betrothed.

Despite the sweet, fun-loving music and Georgia's Southern accent, there's a bit of a dark undertone to the Ginny & Georgia season 2 trailer. (Dare we say we almost got a Euphoria vibe.) We get a sneak peek at the ups and downs between a mother and daughter, as well as teens who are coming to terms with who they are. 

If that isn't overwhelming enough, we get an impeccable revelation from Georgia that pretty much sums up all of her woes: "I’m not normal. I’m a damaged, trailer-park, teen-mom murderer."

Even though the sophomore season took a little more time to return to screens than we would've liked, we are willing to bet it was all worth the wait. 

What will 'Ginny & Georgia' season 2 be about?

We are picking up right where we left off, according to Lampert

"We spent all of Season 1 breaking these characters down and putting them in certain places," she revealed to Netflix Tudum. "So, we wanted to honor that by picking up Season 2 just two weeks later. We jumped right back into where we emotionally left everyone at the end of Season 1."

We catch up with Ginny and her brother after leaving town to presumably meet with Zion. But now once they're back home, how will the fact that Ginny knows what her mother did affect their relationship? Will she be able to handle this information?

Plus, Ginny still has her own hurdles to tackle, such as her feelings for Marcus, where she stands with her friends and how she will deal with her mental health struggles. 

There's a lot to look forward to, peaches! We'll see you in Wellsbury.
