Georgia Miller arrives at Wellsbury with her teenage daughter Ginny and 9-year-old son Austin after her husband dies. On her first day at her new school, Ginny faces off with her English teacher and is befriended by Maxine, through whom she meets Maxine's bad-boy twin brother Marcus and another guy, Hunter. She later kisses Marcus but also agrees to go on a date with Hunter. Meanwhile, Georgia meets cafe' owner Joe; Wellsbury's mayor, Paul; and her next-door neighbor Ellen, the mother of Marcus and Maxine. On their date, both Ginny and Hunter smoke marijuana; when Ginny gets home from the date she has sex with Marcus, losing her virginity. Georgia attends a board meeting held by the Mayor and blackmails Joe to give organic food to the school at a low price; this gets her a job at the mayor's office. Flashbacks throughout the episode reveal how Georgia was abused as a teenager, how she became pregnant with Ginny, and that her husband's crash was caused by her poisoning his smoothie with wolfsbane which caused him to crash.

Ginny turns 16. Paul debates Cynthia and later plays with Austin and advises him about his conflict with Zack. Georgia is embezzling at the office, and calls to hire someone called Marty for a secret job. Georgia's family quarrels over dinner; after dinner Paul visits Georgia and stays overnight. Georgia arranges a party and sleepover with Ginny's friends Max, Norah, and Abby, to keep Ginny's birthday weekend celebration under her protection; the party is crashed by Nick, with Gabriel in tow, and Georgia calls Gabriel by his real name. Gabriel gets a phone call about medical tests that showed Georgia's husband to be in excellent health shortly before his death. Ginny's friends, having raided Georgia's liquor cabinet, sneak with Ginny over to Maxine's home and are joined by others, mainly their boyfriends and girlfriend, for a drinking party while Maxine's parents are away. Georgia finds out and reports them, and they're raided by police. Paul goes to bail Ginny out while Georgia flashes back to a time when she was arrested and nearly lost custody of Ginny. Georgia tells Ginny about how her stepfather abused her, causing her to run away from home, and later adds that she hasn't gotten her inheritance and is broke. Austin goes back to school but loses his nerve and runs off.

Production

Development

On August 13, 2019, it was announced that Netflix had given the production a series order for a first season consisting of ten episodes. The series was created by Sarah Lampert who was also expected to executive-produce alongside Debra J. Fisher, Anya Adams, Jeff Tahler, Jenny Daly, Holly Hines, and Dan March.[5] Adams also directed the first two episodes of the series. Production companies involved with the series were slated to consist of Madica, Critical Content, and Dynamic Television.[1]

Casting

Alongside the initial series announcement, it was reported that Brianne Howey, Antonia Gentry, Diesel La Torraca, Jennifer Robertson, Felix Mallard, Sara Waisglass, Scott Porter, and Raymond Ablack were cast as series regulars.[5] On January 20, 2021, it was announced that Mason Temple was cast in a recurring role.[6]

Filming

Principal photography for the series began on August 14, 2019 and ended on December 10, 2019. Filming took place in Toronto and Cobourg, Ontario, Canada.[7][8]

Release

Ginny & Georgia premiered on February 24, 2021.[2]

Reception

Critical response

Reviewing the series for Rolling Stone, Alan Sepinwall gave a rating of 3/5. When comparing the series to Gilmore Girls, he said: "There's also one area where Ginny & Georgia has a clear leg up on its predecessor: It understands from the jump that it's not especially healthy to have a mom who wants to be your best friend and is reluctant to fully grow up herself."[9] Kristen Baldwin of Entertainment Weekly gave the series a B- and wrote a review saying, "Ginny & Georgia wants us to love the way that Georgia always manages to stay one step ahead... Instead, I kept hoping that Child Protective Services would finally catch up."[10]

For the series, review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes reported an approval rating of 65% based on 26 critic reviews, with an average rating of 6.22/10. The website's critics consensus reads, "If Ginny & Georgia can't quite pull off its tonally ambitious first season, it's at least entertaining to watch it try."[11] Metacritic gave the series a weighted average score of 63 out of 100 based on 14 critic reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".[12]

Controversies

On February 25, 2021, the term "Oppression Olympics" went viral on Twitter in response to a scene where the characters Hunter and Ginny use the term. The scene was received negatively by viewers, who criticized its usage of stereotypes, calling the entire exchange "embarrassing".[13]

On March 1, 2021, the show fell into another controversy regarding a line from the final episode, spoken by Ginny to Georgia: "You go through men faster than Taylor Swift."[14] The line drew backlash from fans, who perceived it as misogynistic and an example of slut-shaming the artist; the phrase "Respect Taylor Swift" trended worldwide on Twitter.[15][16] Swift herself acknowledged the situation by tweeting, "Hey Ginny & Georgia, 2010 called and it wants its lazy, deeply sexist joke back. How about we stop degrading hard working women by defining this horse shit as FuNnY." She also criticized Netflix, writing, "After Miss Americana, this outfit doesn't look cute on you".[17][18] Subsequently, the show was review bombed on multiple platforms, including Rotten Tomatoes, IMDb, and Metacritic; as well as Google reviews.[18] The series was also criticized for its unflattering lines referring to Lady Gaga and Lana Del Rey.[19]
