Great news, Ginny and Georgia fans! The wait for season 3 hasn't ended, but we're getting closer and closer to new episodes become a reality in our watch lists. After delays and postponements due to the strikes, Netflix officially announced on April 29 that Ginny and Georgia season 3 began filming!

The steamer shared a number of pictures of the cast coming together for the first table read of the season, including a selfie of the title characters played by Brianne Howey and Antonia Gentry. It's all smiles before cameras start rolling, but now that they are, we know there's going to be some drama going down this season!

Even though the new season, a.k.a. what's sure to be the best season yet, has thankfully begun filming, don't get too excited for the season to be released soon. Production is expected to last through the fall, and Netflix has already confirmed that we will be waiting for season 3 to premiere in 2025. On the bright side, we'll be getting exciting updates from set!

The Netflix Life team will continue to share updates about Ginny and Georgia season 3. The latest update was made on Tuesday, May 7, 2024.

Ginny and Georgia season 3 is happening

Ginny and Georgia is hands down one of the best teen series streaming on Netflix, and there’s just no arguing that. The first season dropped in 2021, and it took over a year until we got to see the second season. We had hoped Ginny and Georgia season 2 would come out by the end of 2022, but Netflix opted to release it at the beginning of the new year.

But I must say, the second season was definitely worth the wait. It was more drama-filled than the first season and thoroughly entertaining. And don’t get me started on the season 2 finale.

Netflix finally renewed Ginny and Georgia for season 3 in May 2023. It was a terribly long wait for fans of the original series. The second season premiered in January 2023, but fans had to wait until May for the series to be renewed. That almost never happens for huge hits like Ginny and Georgia. 

So, why did the renewal take so long?

According to Deadline, the lengthy wait to renewal might have been due to behind-the-scenes friction between new showrunner Sarah Glinski (Degrassi: The Next Generation) and departing showrunner Debra J. Fisher. Fisher served as showrunner for the first two seasons, but will be replaced by Glinski moving forward.

Season 3 will be released in 2025

Unfortunately, we do not have a release date yet. However, the third season will be released sometime in 2025. According to Deadline, the Ginny and Georgia season 3 release was delayed until 2025 because of the writers and actors strikes. So, no, we won't be seeing a brand new season of the teen series in 2024 like we had hoped.

Reportedly, season 3 production will last through the summer into fall 2024, which brings us to months of post-production. There’s still so much we don’t know about what’s going to happen with Ginny and Georgia season 3, but at the very earliest, we could see the new season in early 2025. Who knows, maybe it'll receive a February or January release like the first and second seasons.

Netflix has been surprising us lately with early, multi-part release dates for Cobra Kai season 6 and Emily in Paris season 4. Perhaps Ginny and Georgia could follow suit with a two-part release, which would get fans half the season sooner rather than the entire season later. We'll have to wait and see, but we'll let you know the official release date once it's announced.

Release Prediction: Early 2025 (at the earliest)

Ginny and Georgia season 2 ending explained

The second season ends on a cliffhanger with Georgia being arrested for the murder of Tom Fuller at her wedding and then booked into jail. In a previous episode, Georgia murders Tom by smothering him with a pillow until he stops breathing. It’s unclear why exactly Georgia killed him, but our guess is that she wanted to repay Cynthia somehow since she helped block Gil’s apartment application. But now Georgia has to pay the consequences.

Here are some other things that happened in the season 2 finale:

  • Max and Sophie seem to break things off for good even though Sophie wants to remain friends.
  • It looked like Abby was about to tell Norah about her struggles with body image and having an eating disorder, but Norah was distracted by her boyfriend.
  • Georgia opens up to Paul about her criminal past but leaves out the murders.
  • Ginny and Marcus decide to be friends.
  • Paul tells Gil to stay away from Georgia and the kids, or he’ll make sure he ends up back in prison. This seems to scare Gil away.
  • PI Gabriel Cordova reveals his true identity to his boyfriend, Nick. Nick ultimately breaks up with him because he lied about who he was.

What could season 3 be about?

There are so many things that could be covered in the third season. Since Georgia was arrested, this will obviously affect Ginny and Austin. Who will watch over them now that their mother is in jail? Ginny and Georgia were on good terms before the arrest, but everything will probably go downhill once Ginny finds out that Georgia did actually kill Tom. Then, there’s Austin. He witnessed Georgia kill Tom and then watched her get taken away by police. This is a lot for a 10-year-old boy to handle. He’ll most likely need to be put in therapy like Ginny.

What about Paul? Georgia’s arrest can’t look good for his reputation since he’s the mayor. Will he decide that it’s too much and divorce her? We also didn’t get to see Cynthia’s reaction to finding out that Georgia killed her husband. I don’t think we saw the last of Gil, either. Now that Georgia has been arrested, he’ll probably return and use her arrest to try to win custody over Austin.

Although we don’t know for sure what Ginny and Georgia season 3 will be about, series creator Sarah Lampert reveals that the creative team already has the third season planned out. Lampert spoke with Deadline and mentioned some of the things she’d like to explore in the third season.

Here’s what Lampert said about Austin’s storyline in the third season:

"“Austin isn’t squeaky clean. He’s a kid, but he stabbed someone in the hand with a pencil, he — way more than Ginny, seems very okay with the fact that his mom’s done all this stuff, he doesn’t seem fazed whatsoever (laughs)… That’s not true. If we get to Season 3, we’ll have to dig deep into what he saw transpire in season two and the emotional ramifications of that.”"

Lampert also mentions how she would like to explore Cynthia’s reaction to Georgia’s arrest.

"Anything could happen. I think that Cynthia in no means wanted Georgia to do that. I think that it would shock her to find out, and obviously we weren’t with her, we don’t know what happened off camera in between that scene that led to the arrest. But that would definitely be something that I think we would want to explore in Season 3."

In an interview with TV Guide back in January 2023, Lampert doesn’t necessarily spoil how Georgia’s arrest will impact her relationship with Paul going forward, but she does tease that it could be the last straw for him. She tells TV Guide that it “would need to be explored in Season 3.”

Also, if you were wondering about Georgia and Joe’s romantic future, Lampert says you’ll have to watch the third season to find out.

Who could return in the third season?

There isn’t an official cast list yet. However, we have an idea of who could possibly return. Obviously, Antonia Gentry (Ginny), Brianne Howey (Georgia), and Diesel La Torraca (Austin) will reprise their roles as the Miller family.

Here’s who else we believe could return in the third season:

  • Jennifer Robertson as Ellen Baker
  • Felix Mallard as Marcus Baker
  • Sara Waisglass as Maxine “Max” Baker
  • Scott Porter as Mayor Paul Randolph
  • Raymond Ablack as Joe
  • Aaron Ashmore as Gil Timmins
  • Katie Douglas as Abby
  • Chelsea Clark as Norah
  • Mason Temple as Hunter Chen
  • Sabrina Grdevich as Cynthia Fuller
  • Colton Gobbo as Jordan
  • Nathan Mitchell as Zion Miller
  • Rebecca Ablack as Padma
  • Tyssen Smith as Brodie
  • Daniel Beirne as Nick
  • Alex Mallari Jr. as PI Gabriel Cordova
  • Damian Romeo as Matt Press
  • Chris Kenopic as Clint Baker
  • Romi Shraiter as Samantha
  • Tameka Griffiths as Bracia
  • Katelyn Wells as Silver
  • Zarrin Darnell-Martin as Dr. Lily
  • Vinessa Antoine as Simone
  • Nikki Roumel as teenage Georgia Miller
  • Kyle Bary as teenage Zion Miller

We can probably expect some new cast additions as well in the third season.

Unfortunately, the total episode count for Ginny and Georgia season 3 has not been revealed. However, seasons 1 and 2 were given 10 episodes each, so our guess is that there will be 10 episodes in the third season. There’s a possibility that Netflix could order more or fewer episodes, but 10 episodes seem more likely.

When it comes to the age rating for the third season, it’ll probably be rated TV-14 like the previous two seasons. It’s rare when Netflix changes the age rating for a show as the seasons go on, and we don’t foresee this happening with the third season. It’s possible but not likely.

Ginny and Georgia season 4 is officially happening at Netflix

Yes, you read that right! A fourth season will be coming to Netflix in the future. On May 17, Netflix announced the good news. The teen series was officially renewed for a third and fourth season on this date. It’s going to be a while before we learn any new information about the fourth season since the third season hasn’t even come out yet. But, of course, you can count on us to share everything that is revealed and announced.

Netflix has not announced that Ginny and Georgia season 4 will be the final season, so that’s great news for fans who want this show to run for a long time. However, there are a few reasons we’d expect Ginny and Georgia season 4 to be the final season.

For one, Netflix just doesn’t make many shows that last for longer than four seasons, especially not teen shows. There’s only a handful of recent shows that have surpassed three or four seasons on Netflix, so it would be normal for Ginny and Georgia season 4 to be the final season.

Additionally, Debra J. Fisher, who has since been replaced as showrunner with Sarah Glinski taking over, told TheWrap that they pitched Ginny and Georgia as four seasons to Netflix. She also said that they know where the show is going and what the “end game” will be.

"“We did always know where we wanted to end this season. When Sarah and I went in together to pitch to Netflix, we pitched four seasons, and knock on all the wood. We know where Season 3 begins and ends and we know the end game.”"

So, it’s starting to look like season 4 will be the final season of the series.
