Happy early Mother’s Day.
Netflix has handed out a speedy season two renewal for mother-daughter coming-of-age series Ginny & Georgia after the streamer says more than 52 million member households watched at least two minutes of the show starring Brianne Howey and Antonia Gentry. (Netflix, like other streamers, does not release traditional viewership data.)
The second-season order, which will again consist of 10 hourlong episodes, comes less than two months after the dramedy debuted on the streamer. The company notes that Ginny & Georgia made its top 10 lists in 87 countries around the world and was No. 1 in 46, including the U.S.
“We are so appreciative of the incredible response and love you all have shown Ginny & Georgia. We’re especially grateful to Brianne and Toni, who set the highest bar every step of the way. We can’t wait to return to Wellsbury for season two,” said showrunner Debra J. Fisher and creator Sarah Lampert, who both also exec produce.
The series, which also opened atop the Nielsen streaming charts following its first week of release, currently hovers in the high 60s on Rotten Tomatoes with both critics and audience members. (THR TV critic Inkoo Kang called Ginny & Georgia “[w]insome but uneven” in her February review.)
The series found itself trending on social media for all the wrong reasons shortly after its Netflix debut after drawing backlash from viewers who took issue with multiple scenes that were deemed misogynistic and sexist, including one targeting Taylor Swift. The superstar also called out Netflix over the “lazy, deeply sexist” namecheck in the Ginny & Georgia episode. The show was, it’s worth noting, review-bombed on multiple websites, including Rotten Tomatoes.
