Ginny & Georgia‘s complicated mother-daughter duo is getting not one but two more seasons to work out their issues.
Netflix has renewed the dramedy for Seasons 3 and 4, it was announced on Wednesday during the streamer’s Upfront presentation. Additionally, Sarah Glinski (Degrassi: Next Class) will take over as showrunner, replacing Debra J. Fisher.
Ginny & Georgia returned for Season 2 on Jan. 5 after a nearly two-year break. In the season finale, Georgia opened up to Paul about her abusive ex Gil, her shady deeds and more of her troubled past — but she left out the truth about how she killed her two ex-husbands. Despite everything she’d told him, Paul still wanted to marry Georgia, because she’s already ruined him, he said. The couple got hitched in a beautiful ceremony, but their first dance was interrupted by the police. The authorities arrested Georgia for the murder of Cynthia’s dying husband Tom, leaving Paul, Georgia, Austin (who’d witnessed his mom suffocating Tom with a pillow) and the rest of the guests to look on in shock as she was taken away in handcuffs.
Asked if Paul will start to see his wife in a new light and suspect that there’s more that she’s not telling him, creator/executive producer Sarah Lampert replied with a laugh, “I think once you’re arrested for murder, stuff’s going to come to the surface.”
Elsewhere in the finale, Ginny showed up as a friend for her ex Marcus, who was struggling with depression, while Georgia and Joe (who had an affair with Cynthia) also came to a place of friendship in their relationship while denying their feelings for each other.
“What happens in Episodes 8, 9 and 10 between Joe, Cynthia and Georgia plays a huge role in Season 3,” Lampert teased in a post mortem interview, adding that it’s not necessarily romantic. “Plot-wise, we are laying seeds that you won’t realize were laid until we get a Season 3, and if we’re able to tell the story we want to tell, it will all make sense. And everything will come back around in a way that you were not expecting.”

Finally! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I’d be curious to know why the show runner is leaving
Me too, but I hope the new one reins in Brianne Howey’s overacting. She chews the scenery almost every time she’s on screen.
I was getting REAL nervous about this show’s future so I’m thankful for this news. I hope the showrunner swap won’t hurt, because while this show isn’t perfect, it uses its ingredients in a very unique way and I don’t want the taste to be different!
But glad this show will get to wrap on its own terms, and shooting back to back makes so much more sense then only 10 episodes at a time.
BTW, on a plane recently someone in the seat in front of me was watching S2 and I was reminded of how dumb it was that Georgia never had her biker gang back tattoo altered into something else so as not to associate herself with criminals/her past. This woman thinks of everything but not that, and wears clothes that don’t hide it? Didn’t buy that for a second.
That’s a nice surprise! Waiting for cancellation announcement only to receive two more seasons!!
Hopefully we won’t have to wait two years before the next season, but this is good news!
So excited about two more seasons for my show! Thank you, Netflix!
