Ginny & Georgia Season 2 Age Appropriate Parents Guide
CAUTION: The following section may contain spoilers. Skip to “Overall Thoughts” to avoid any sort of spoilery content.
Let’s take a look at what parents need to know before letting their kids watch Ginny & Georgia Season 2.
Language: Ginny & Georgia Season 2 contains strong language, with profanity used throughout. Lookout words include: b*tch, sh*t, d*mn, hell, sucks, and more.
Violence: The series contains themes of violence, such as domestic abuse, self-harm, and murder. Characters are shown wielding guns, with even a child getting ahold of a gun and shooting it. A character self-harms and is shown burning herself and even entering a bath tub with scolding hot water. There is also a scene where a character is being smothered with a pillow.
Sexual Content/Nudity: Ginny & Georgia Season 2 contains scenes where characters are discussing sex and use the phrase “blow job.” There are two scenes in which characters engage in oral sex, but the act occurs off-screen. A boyfriend and girlfriend are often shown sleeping together in the same bed after sneaking into each other’s bedroom windows.
Drugs/Alcohol: Characters are shown smoking weed and cigarettes. There is also consumption of alcohol and underage drinking, with characters being intoxicated.
Netflix’s Ginny & Georgia season 2 picks right up where season 1 left off, with Ginny (Antonia Gentry) and her brother Austin (Diesel La Torraca) packing up a bag and running away from home, after Ginny discovers the truth about her stepfather’s death. While many are left wondering where the siblings are headed, Gentry has previously shared her own theory, “When she’s packing her bag, she grabs the book that Zion gives her, and if you were paying attention when Zion arrives and is giving her the book, you know that he included an address,” she said. “I’m thinking it’s pretty reasonable to assume that Ginny might be headed toward Zion, but I don’t want to tell people what to think, even though the clues are all there.” As they say, the things that make the most sense are probably leading towards the truth.
As Ginny runs from the truths surrounding her mother’s dark past, she also leaves behind conflicts of her own, such as her strained relationship with her friend Maxine (Sara Waisglass), after Max finds out the truth about Ginny’s relationship with her brother Marcus (Felix Mallard). There is also the little fact that Ginny cheated on Hunter with Marcus, leaving their “MANG” group in total disarray. Ginny & Georgia season 2 has some relationships to repair, and this season fans will see a lot of growth with all characters as well as delving into more of their demons. In season 1, Marcus shared his “dark” period after the death of his best friend, and this season we see that dark passenger returning, with Marcus sinking back into the “room of depression” and how it effects his relationships around him. There is also Ginny’s self-harm, which she continues to struggle with this season, and more of those around her finding out about her “secret,” thus sending her to therapy.
Ginny & Georgia season 2 also has Georgia preparing for her upcoming nuptials to Mayor Paul (Scott Porter), which has him moving in with her this season and taking on a stepfather role. Audiences will also get more glimpses into Georgia’s past, and the events that led up to her leaving Austin’s dad, which just gets juicier and juicier as the season progresses. There is also the little fact that Georgia is still being trailed by Gabriel, who is trying to dig up some dirt on her and the death of her ex-husband Kevin. This season feels like a true continuation of season 1, and in true Ginny & Georgia fashion, we are left with one of the biggest cliffhangers in Netflix history that will have viewers screaming for season 3 ASAP! Out of all the Netfilx series in recent history, this one has fully survived the sophmore slump. In fact, it has only gotten better in all facets, which leaves a 3rd season with huge shoes to fill if it is to continue this level of excitement.
