Marathon, anyone? Here are a few series to add to your watch list if you're hooked on the Netflix mother-daughter dramedy.

1. 'Gilmore Girls' (2000-2007, 2016)

  • Where to watch: Netflix

Before there was Ginny and Georgia Miller, there was Lorelai and Rory Gilmore. This mother-daughter duo might not have a murder to contend with, but they do provide ample helpings of lovable family dynamics and small-town charm like their successors. Truthfully, if Stars Hollow actually existed, we'd be dining at Luke's on the daily, dodging all of Taylor's crazy schemes and hanging out with Miss Patti. 

2. 'Euphoria' (2019-present)

  • Where to watch: HBO Max

Touching on similar themes to Ginny & Georgia—teenage growing pains, mental health struggles, turbulent high school life—this drama is a more extreme take on the Netflix series. It grapples with strong subject matter as young adults navigate their way through murky waters. Here's what you need to know about the forthcoming Euphoria season 3

3. 'Sweet Magnolias' (2020-present)

4. 'Teenage Bounty Hunters' (2020)

  • Where to watch: Netflix

Sure, Teenage Bounty Hunters only lasted one season, but its premise—"twin sisters Sterling and Blair balance teen life at an elite Southern high school with an unlikely new career as butt-kicking bounty hunters"—share the same "coming of age comedy meets crime thriller" mix that we've come to love from Ginny & Georgia

5. 'Good Girls' (2018-2021)

  • Where to watch: Netflix

A group of women (played by Christina Hendricks, Retta and Mae Whitman) gets tired of playing nice and getting the short end of the stick.

But since these criminal masterminds are new to the trade, there's a lot of drama along the way. 

6. 'Little Fires Everywhere' (2020)

  • Where to watch: Hulu

Anything Celeste Ng writes gets immediate real estate on our bookshelves. And anything Reese Witherspoon creates is a must-watch. With this combo, we knew this highly-anticipated miniseries would pull us in from the get-go. It explores a small town in the '90s when a picture-perfect housewife (Witherspoon) rents out a home to a mother (Kerry Washington) and daughter (Lexi Underwood), but there are secrets lurking everywhere, and that whole "picture-perfect" notion is shattered.

7. 'Big Little Lies' (2017-2019)

  • Where to watch: HBO Max, Hulu Premium 

Three Monterey moms (played by Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon and Shailene Woodley) from very different backgrounds form an unlikely friendship in this book-turned-series. There's a facade masking the perfection that everyone is working so hard to maintain. Will the real secrets of this beachside town be exposed?

8. 'Atypical' (2018-2021)

  • Where to watch: Netflix

If you're drawn to the family life in Ginny & Georgia, things take a turn for the complicated in the Gardner household. Between Elsa's overbearing nature, Sam's determination to work through his autism struggles and Casey's coming-of-age confusion, there's a lot to handle and a lot to love in this Netflix dramedy. 

9. 'Family Reunion' (2019-present)

When a family (led by Tia Mowry and Anthony Alabi) uproots itself from Seattle to Georgia, a few issues arise (naturally). For a comedic take on a cross-country transition, this sitcom has you covered.

  • Where to watch: Netflix

Jane Gloriana Villanueva (played by Gina Rodriguez) is the child of a teen mom and vows to get her life in order before getting physically intimate...but what happens when a routine visit to the clinic reveals some surprising pregnancy news? (Hint: chaos, just like in Jane's beloved telenovelas!)
