Season 1 told the story of single mother Georgia (Brianne Howey) who moves to the fictional affluent town of Wellsbury, Massachusetts to give her kids Ginny (Antonia Gentry) and Austin (Diesel La Torraca) a better life. As well as having funny moments, the series touches on plenty of serious themes including race, self-harm, body image and consent.
The 10-part second season picked up where season 1 left off, following the mother and daughter duo as they try to live new lives and look to the future whilst keeping their secrets hidden deeply in the past.
With fans quickly binging the new season, many have been left wondering when season 3 will be released. Here’s everything we know so far.

Will there be a Ginny & Georgia season 3?
First things first, will there be a Ginny & Georgia season 3? Well fans of the show can finally breathe a sigh of release as Netflix has confirmed not only a third season but also a fourth.
Speaking to Tudum when season 2 premiered in January, Antonia Gentry, who plays Ginny, said: "It feels surreal still. The show's success has meant so much to me. More so, just because it's touched so many people globally."
Creator Sarah Lampart also told Tudum that she had the story "all planned out", with the season 2 finale which saw Georgia arrested at her very own wedding setting up season 3.
She said: "When we had to develop the storyline for season 2, we knew exactly what we wanted season 3 to be. Georgia needed to kill someone and she needed to kill someone in Wellsbury, Massachusetts."
Lampart added that season 3 will throw "new hurdles, new relationships and new challenges" at Ginny and Georgia in "a way we haven't seen before on the show".
When could Ginny & Georgia season 3 come out?
While seasons 3 and 4 have been confirmed, there hasn't been much said about when the next instalment of the Netflix series could be released. There was a wait of nearly two years in between seasons 1 and 2 due to delays caused by the Covid pandemic. Fans are hoping that they could be getting the next season as early as 2024.
What can we expect from Ginny & Georgia season 3?
It seems like the plot for season 3 is already decided, with showrunner Debra J Fisher telling the The Wrap: “We did always know where we wanted to end this season. When Sarah [Lampert] and I went in together to pitch to Netflix, we pitched four seasons, and knock on all the wood”. Adding: “We know where Season 3 begins and ends and we know the end game.”
Speaking about the season 2 finale and how season will play out, Fisher said: “I think we’ve set up a lot of really great possibilities in the sense that, just playing out hypotheticals, if Georgia is being charged with this crime, we have Zion, he’s Ginny’s dad, we have Gill in the picture now.
“I think previous to this, he had no chance at custody because he was a convicted felon but who knows now, and we’ve got Paul, who’s the stepdad. We have so many golden possibilities for storytelling based on how rich these characters are, and based on how many surprises we want to throw into Season 3 that I’m being coy about but we do have it planned out.”
Whilst Nathan Mitchell (The Boys) who plays Zion Miller, told DigitalSpy: “I’d love to see where things go with Simone. I think it’s always fun when you throw Georgia in the mix there, where you have those three together, and have them navigate this new dynamic that they exist in.”
Who will star in Ginny & Georgia season 3?
Ginny & Georgia has a big cast and it’s expected that many of the lead characters including Brianne Howey (Scream Queens) and Antonia Gentry (Candy Jar) will reprise their roles as Georgia and Ginny Miller in season 3.
Other characters we can look forward to seeing again could include Scott Porter (Hart of Dixie) as Mayor Paul Randolph, Sara Waisglass (Degrassi) as Maxine “Max” Baker and Mitchell as Zion Miller.
