The much-loved comedy series, which official synopsis reads: "Ginny Miller, an angsty fifteen-year-old, often feels more mature than her thirty-year-old mother, the irresistible and dynamic Georgia Miller," will drop on the streaming platform on January 5th. So what better time for a good old recap?
From unpacking the cliffhanger ending of the final episode to heading back to the very start when Georgia and her children, Ginny and Austin move to Wellsbury, Massachusetts, here's the ultimate crash course in everything that's happened up until now...
Ginny, Georgia and Austin move to Wellsbury, Massachusetts
Season one of Ginny & Georgia (which since its release in 2021 has been compared to the now-classic comedy-drama series Gilmore girls) starts with Georgia uprooting her family and moving them to a New England town following her husband's sudden death.
15-year-old Ginny isn't happy about the move, as she's already spent her life living in numerous cities across North America for the majority of her life.
However, soon after arriving in Wellsbury, Massachusetts, Georgia quickly befriends Maxine.
Ginny falls for Maxine's brother, Marcus while dating Hunter
Ginny swiftly settles into her new life, and even makes friends with her new pal Maxine's twin brother, Marcus. Things start to get a little complicated when she begins to develop feelings for him though, as Ginny ends up dating Hunter while simultaneously becoming close with Marcus.
In the Feelings are Hard episode, she hooks up with Marcus, cheating on Hunter, and the whole situation turns sour when everyone finds out.
Georgia gets engaged to the mayor
Season one also sees Georgia combining her personal life with her working life when she lands a job in the mayor's office. During her time there, she falls for Wellsbury’s mayor, Paul and the pair quickly become engaged. This is all despite the new relationship ruffling some feathers amongst their peers.
Georgia reconnects with an old 'friend'
Georgia becomes friends with Joe, the owner of the local Blue Farm cafe, where Ginny starts to work later in the series.
Unbeknownst to the two during their first encounters, they had actually met 15 years prior, when Joe had given Georgia a sandwich and some sunglasses when she was going through a rough patch.
By the end of the first season, Joe has fallen for Georgia but can't bring himself to admit his feelings for her.
Ginny finds out Georgia killed her step-dad
If you remember, the opening scenes of the first episode show the funeral of Georgia's most recent husband, Kenny Drexel. (And the catalyst for the family's move.)
From the little we know of the character, he was very wealthy and had a jealous family, but also took a liking to Ginny. The first ep sees Georgia catching Kenny getting a bit too close with her daughter during a yoga session, so she poisons him, causing him to crash his car and die.
While Georgia's actions were obviously not the best way of dealing with things, she believes she did what she did to keep Ginny safe. However, the young teen's relationship becomes more strained with her mother after a private investigator tells her how Kenny was killed. This causes Ginny to question her mother and her morals, and potentially push her away from her even further.
Austin finds out his dad's letters were fake
As Georgia enjoys Paul's mayoral re-election celebrations, Ginny and her younger brother decide to run away. This is after they discover that Georgia lied about Austin's dad sending him letters.
Instead, Georgia had been keeping Austin's letters from his father and forging replies to her son. While it's not known where the siblings were headed at the end of season one, it could be that they were on their way to Ginny's father's home in Boston.
If you want to catch up with every detail before the drop of the new episodes, Ginny & Georgia is now streaming on Netflix.
