Netflix’s Ginny & Georgia is the latest drama to land on the streaming platform, following on from the tremendous successes seen in previous months. With shows like Bridgerton, Firefly Lane, and Behind Her Eyes keeping us hooked throughout the winter, it’s no surprise that we’re ready for the next big series. And it seems like they may have just delivered it with Ginny & Georgia. Compared by some to everyone’s favorite 2000s show Gilmore Girls, there’s definitely a charming small-town aspect to it.
But whilst Ginny & Georgia focuses on a mother-daughter duo, it also has a lot of mystery, secrets, and steamy romances to make it stand out from the crowd. If you’re not sure whether to add this new show to your to-watch list, never fear!
We reveal all you need to know about the plot and the cast of Ginny & Georgia to help you make up your mind...
What is Netflix’s Ginny & Georgia about?
Netflix’s Ginny & Georgia focuses on Virginia ‘Ginny’ Miller and her mother Georgia. Despite being only 15 years old, Ginny often finds herself feeling a whole lot more mature than Georgia. The show follows the family as they move to a town in New England, hoping for a fresh start. Ginny isn’t quite so keen to make the move, though this soon changes after she meets attractive neighbor Marcus and becomes best friends with his twin Maxine.

But things never go quite as planned and soon Georgia’s dark past looks like it’s about to catch up with the Millers. Protective of Ginny and her brother Austin, devoted mother Georgia is prepared to do anything to keep her family safe.
This leads to a pretty shocking ending and if we’ve learned anything about cliffhanger endings since Netflix hits Firefly Lane and Behind Her Eyes, it’s that they really do keep us eager for more.
Who is in the cast of Ginny & Georgia?
When it comes to the cast of Ginny & Georgia, Netflix chose some pretty impressive talents. Ginny Miller is one of actor Antonia Gentry’s first major roles and she certainly plays her brilliantly.

Brianne Howey plays her on-screen mother Georgia and some viewers might recognize her from a variety of other shows, including 90210 and The Exorcist. Whilst Ginny’s love interest and neighbor Marcus is played by Australian actor Felix Mallard, who previously starred in Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist and Locke & Key.
Sara Waisglass is Maxine, who previously Frankie in Degrassi, and the twins’ mother Ellen is played by Jennifer Robertson, perhaps best known in recent years for her role as Jocelyn Schitt on Emmy-winning comedy Schitt’s Creek.
The cast of Ginny & Georgia has really brought this show to life on-screen as fans can't help but be drawn into the drama.
