Netflix just released the first images of its new family dramedy, Ginny & Georgia, the show fans have been comparing to Gilmore Girls since it was first announced in 2019.
Coming to Netflix on January 24, here is the official description for the 10-episode series:
“Angsty and awkward 15-year-old Ginny Miller (Antonia Gentry) often feels more mature than her 30-year-old mother, the irresistible and dynamic Georgia Miller (Brianna Howey). After years on the run, Georgia desperately wants to put down roots in picturesque New England and give her family something they’ve never had… a normal life. But it’s not all carpool and Kombucha as Georgia’s past threatens her and her family’s new way of life… and Georgia will do anything to protect her family.”
Hmmm…a mother-daughter duo with switched dynamics living in a quaint New England town? It’s really no wonder comparisons to Gilmore Girls keep rolling in. (Reader, I was going to shorten Gilmore Girls to GG in this sentence, but Ginny & Georgia share the same initials. Interesting!) Still, it does sound like there are some more mysterious elements at work here than in the iconic Amy Sherman-Palladino series.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at Stars Hollow—I mean, whatever town Ginny and Georgia live.
Here’s your first difference: There’s a third Miller! Does he also have G-name? Nope. Austin (Diesel La Torraca) was not only left out of the title and description, but he doesn’t even get to share an initial with his mom and sister. Awkward.
Okay, but Marcus (Felix Mallard, above) is kind of serving Jesse vibes, no? And if we have Jesse, we def need a Dean…or maybe a Deanna?
Meanwhile, which of these fine fellows seem like Georgia’s Luke?
I’d say the guy at the bar/cafe/whatever this place is, right? He and his plaid shirt have my vote.
You’ll have to wait until January 24 to see if this series will fill the hole that Lorelei and Rory Gilmore have left behind. Mark your calendars!
