If you liked the 1st season of comedy-drama Ginny and Georgia and want to watch more shows like Ginny and Georgia, you are in the right place. We are here to give suggestions on Netflix shows that will appease your hunger while you wait for Ginny and Georgia Season 2.
The series almost promised a Gilmore Girls kinda plot, with its mother-daughter drama and life lessons. However, the series was a disappointment for some because it tried to do too much, incorporating too many subjects and messages. There were, of course, also those who loved the show because of the relationship between the mother and the daughter. Critics could not agree on a single opinion as well, as can be seen from the rating the show received on Rotten Tomatoes: 68%.
No matter the flaws and the mistakes the show may have had, we know many fans really enjoyed it and there are those who cannot wait for Ginny and Georgia Season 2. It would be only fair to provide them with 5 alternative shows to watch until the new season of Ginny and Georgia arrives.
The first Netflix show on our list of 5 shows like Ginny and Georgia is Insatiable (2018-2019). Insatiable is a show released in 2018 that received a lot of backlash and controversy while also getting a rating of 11% on Rotten Tomatoes, even deemed by certain sources as “Netflix’s worst original series.” On the contrary, though, the show has a very high audience score; so, it seems the opinions of critics and the public do not meet for this series.
Push aside the criticism and the opinions, Insatiable is a fun show that has both comedic and dramatic elements which are perfect for Ginny and Georgia lovers. The show only has 2 seasons since it was canceled after the 2nd one and it’s available on Netflix for all viewers.
2. Spinning Out
Another show on our list is Spinning Out (2020) which only has 1 season with 10 episodes that render it quite easy to binge-watch. The show is about a young skater who had an injury that prevented her from entering competitions. However, we see her getting another chance to prove her talents while also dealing with mental health issues. The series is just right for people who loved Ginny and Georgia’s drama as Spinning Out will provide the right amount of drama for them.
3. Grand Army
Grandy Army (2020) is another show that was canceled by Netflix after 1 season of air time. The show is a drama about 5 high school students who struggle with issues about race, sex, and economics. The show will remind you of Ginny’s struggles on the same issues so we recommend you watch it to get another fun and insightful perspective on these significant matters.

4. Tiny Pretty Things
Tiny Pretty Things (2020) is the 4th show on our list of shows you need to watch before Ginny and Georgia Season 2. The show follows an elite ballet academy and the young women within it, who try to make it in a world far away from their homes. This show was also canceled after its 1st season and received mixed reviews. We believe, it has many points of resemblance to Ginny and Georgia in terms of examining what it means to be a young person who has to deal with the hardships of the world.
The last show to watch before Ginny and Georgia Season 2 is Trinkets (2019-2020). The comedy-drama show follows 3 teenagers who end up forming an unexpected friendship after they meet in an unconventional support group: Shoplifters Anonymous. The series will definitely remind you of Ginny and Georgia with its comedic elements and its teenage characters who try to deal with family drama.
The show has 2 seasons and a total of 20 episodes, all available on Netflix.
