by Katie Mae Yetter, Staff Writer

After almost two years of leaving fans waiting for more, “Ginny & Georgia” one of Netflix’s hit shows, finally released season 2 on Jan. 5, 2023. The first season came out on Feb. 24, 2021. There was an instant fan reaction to the show. “Ginny & Georgia” became a top hit, climbing the Netflix top ten list as it gained more and more popularity. Although it had cringe moments while trying to depict Gen Z culture, the premise was done well. The show covers heavy issues that teenagers in this day and age struggle with every day, such as depression, eating disorders, and self-harm. The actors definitely portray it well. Each actor takes such seriousness in their roles of portraying the mental illness that has been given to their characters. There are no superficial or quirky traits to their characters because of their mental illness. Their performances are sob worthy.

There was a major build-up to the new season due to the anticipation of many adoring fans, including me, as the first season ended with a major cliffhanger. At the announcement of the release date, a released scene teased fans, who were gearing up for the new season.

Season 2 was honestly much better. The characters seemed to develop since the first season to make them more likable. However, some of fan favorite characters such as Max Baker, main character Ginny’s best friend, became one of the most hated characters. The showrunners also gave the finally fans the relationships that have been built up since the first episode of season 1.

Love interest Marcus and main character Ginny’s relationship has been burning since the first episode and to see them finally together made me personally really excited. Watching Georgia’s relationship with Paul, her fiance, as she learned to trust him more was an interesting dynamic.

The depth of the plotlines was superior this season compared to last. Everything felt less shallow and childish. There were certainly fewer cringe moments this season. The cliffhanger this season left my jaw on the floor. You’ll either love it, hate it, or just not want to watch but check out “Ginny & Georgia” season 2, now streaming on Netflix.
