Netflix's 'Ginny & Georgia' Season 2 Plans - Show's Creators Talk What's to Come (Spoilers)

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD!

Ginny & Georgia is already shaping up to be one of Netflix‘s next big shows, and already, fans are wondering about whether a second season is on the way for the mother-daughter dramedy.

The first season follows teenager Ginny (Antonia Gentry) and her mother, Georgia (Brianne Howey), as they settle in a new town, hoping for a fresh start – but the secrets in Georgia’s past may jeopardize their future.

The creators of the show chatted with O Magazine about what to expect with a potential Season 2.

“We always knew we wanted to build to that cliffhanger. Everything else in the middle was a fun discovery,” showrunner Debra J. Fisher explained, going on to say that, if renewed, a new season would explore the fallout of Ginny’s decision to run away from her mother, Georgia, with her little brother Austin (Diesel La Torraca) in tow.

“She’s doing exactly what her mother does: Always running,” the showrunner went on to explain.

“Season 1 really did feel like a season 1. We just started uncovering some of the layers for all characters, across the board, that we want to dive into. Deb and I are hoping we get the chance,” creator Sarah Lampert adds.

The creators also discussed casting for the show, explaining that Antonia was found quickly, but Brianne took longer.

“It was on our very last day. We were supposed to have all these decisions made. Then we received a very late tape one night from Brianne Howey who had just returned from Europe, getting engaged to her fiancé [Matt Ziering]. We watched it and we were like, we have to have this woman come in and read with Tony (Antonia) right away.”

Among the many things to explore in another season is the mother-daughter relationship itself and the many revelations about their family: Ginny has to grapple with the fact that her mother killed her last husband, Kenny, for instance.

“The relationship between Ginny and Georgia is the third character in the show. It lives on its own. It’s constantly changing and evolving. There are so many scenes where the two of them are communicating with each other over everyone’s head. They’re intrinsically wound,” said Sarah.

Ginny’s experience as a biracial woman also creates a divide between the two.

“Ginny is going through the world in a different way than Ginny is and Georgia can’t ever grasp that. In the same way, Ginny can’t understand the trauma and sacrifices Georgia went through to get Ginny to Wellsbury. There’s a lot of room for them to hurt each other’s feelings with what they can’t understand about each other,” she explained.

Although Season 2 has not yet been confirmed, it is likely that it wouldn’t come out until 2022.

The creators also addressed those Gilmore Girl comparisons.

Joshua Bassett Explains Why He Removed Sabrina Carpenter Collab from Upcoming EP

Joshua Bassett Explains Why He Removed Sabrina Carpenter Collab from Upcoming EP

Joshua Bassett is opening up about his decision to remove his collaboration with girlfriend Sabrina Carpenter from his upcoming EP.

The 20-year-old singer and High School Musical: The Musical: The Series actor shared the track list for the EP last week and his fans noticed that the collab, titled “We Both Know,” was removed from the list.

Joshua told Billboard that he and Sabrina are “super excited about” the song and “it was a very much a mutual conversation about what is best right now for everybody and this whole situation.”

He added, “I didn’t want my EP to be overshadowed by some other narrative that people were trying to make. I really want the focus to be on the art instead of some of the talk and the chatter. You shouldn’t live to please everybody, but at the same time, there are ways to be sensitive to situations where maybe [‘We Both Know’] has a better chance at a different time.”

Joshua and Sabrina are the alleged subjects of his co-star Olivia Rodrigo‘s hit song “Driver’s License,” which has been on top of the Hot 100 for six weeks now. Sabrina‘s song “Skin” was seemingly a response to that track.

All three of them were mentioned in an SNL skit about the song this past weekend.

“First, I was in disbelief — [I was] mostly proud of Olivia,” Joshua said about the sketch. “The fact that they were using her song in a sketch, I was like, ‘This is great. This is incredible!’”

When he heard his name get called out, he said, “I was like, ‘I think I’m honored?’ They poke fun at everyone and everything. That’s the point of the show. I thought it was hilarious.”

Golden Globes 2021: First-Time Nominees Gather for Zoom Party - See Photos!

The 2021 Golden Globes show is just days away and a bunch of this year’s first-time nominees gathered for a Zoom party to celebrate their accomplishments!

Mank‘s Amanda Seyfried, Hamilton and One Night in Miami star Leslie Odom Jr, and The Great‘s Nicholas Hoult were among the 18 stars who called in for the Zoom party this week.

Amanda talked about getting to experience her first Golden Globes as a nominee from the comfort of her own home. She said, What an amazing way to experience this moment with everybody in my life, even my dog. It’s a once in a lifetime thing and I’m going to get to be with all of them…. I’m not putting my four-year-old to bed early that night. She can stay up as late as she wants!”

Nicholas talked about his plans for what he’ll wear. He said, “Since it’s in the middle of the night I’ll probably be in bed with the top half of a tuxedo on and my PJs on the bottom.”

Leslie opened up about learning of his double nominations. He said, “I was also asleep! It was a really exciting morning because so much of my life was represented. I did my final performance of Hamilton four years ago… and then One Night in Miami is the most recent thing so it was this weird, wonderful confluence mashup of all the hard work and dedication over all these years.”

Make sure to watch the Golden Globes on Sunday night (February 28) at 8pm EST on NBC. The show is airing live coast-to-coast!

House Passes Equality Act for LGBTQ Protections

House Passes Equality Act for LGBTQ Protections

The Equality Act just passed in the House of Representatives, and it’s a major trending topic on Twitter.

The House passed sweeping legislation prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex, sexual orientation and gender identity on Thursday (February 25), moving forward on a 224-206 vote, mostly down party lines, USA Today reported.

Three Republicans voted with all Democrats.

The bill is one of President Joe Biden‘s top legislative priorities that he wants passed in his first 100 days in office.

“The legislation amends civil rights laws including the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964, which had banned discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion and national origin, to include protections on the basis of sex, sexual orientation and gender identity. It also would prohibit such discrimination in public places, on transportation and in government-funded programs,” USA Today reports.

Rep. David Cicilline, who introduced the House measure, said “every American deserves respect and dignity,” and the act would “ensure that LGBTQ Americans can live lives free of discrimination.”

A similar version of the bill passed in 2019, but did not make it through Senate. It is not clear yet if this bill will pass through the 50-50 split Senate.

Some conservatives and Republicans are concerned that the legislation could infringe upon religious liberty or lead to inequality in athletic competitions if transgender women compete against cisgender women.

Cicilline responded to the religious objections by saying “religious organizations would still enjoy the rights they have” under existing law.

Sen. Chuck Schumer said he would use his power as majority leader to put the bill on the floor, but did not specify when it would be brought into consideration in the Senate.

There is also news regarding the former President’s tax returns.
