1. Teenage Bounty Hunters
There have been other shows that have combined the high school drama of Ginny with the dangers of a secret double life, but Ginny & Georgia is one of the most original. Georgia’s storyline often felt separate from Ginny’s high school jinx; twin sisters Sterling and Blair get into bounty hunting while also worrying about losing their virginities to the right people at their Christian academy. Teenage Bounty Hunters, which debuted half a year before Ginny and Georgia, did a better job of combining teenage life with the side gig of nabbing wanted fugitives. Netflix canceled the show despite the fact that it had a great mix of action, mystery, and comedy, with a satisfying finale reveal that begged for a second season. Boo! Even so, if you liked Ginny & Georgia, you’ll enjoy this. in the words of Timothy Surette
2. Gilmore Girls
The Gilmore Girls, but with bigger boobs” is something Georgia and Ginny constantly refer to themselves as. Amy Sherman-WB Palladino’s show about a young mom and her teenage daughter trying to find their way in a quirky small town in the northeast is the definitive mother-daughter story for the millennial period, for better or worse. After an absence of a decade and a half, the show hasn’t aged well, but fans will still tune in to hear Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Luke (Scott Patterson) exchange one-liners at breakneck speed and see if they can stay together.
3. Jane the Virgin
In case you’re looking for something similar to Ginny & Georgia with your mother-daughter connection, look no further than Jane the Virgin. When the Villanueva women stick together in this show, there’s a lot of dead bodies and lots of supervillains and face swapping and evil twins and amnesia to keep them grounded. You’ll fall in love with Jane (Gina Rodriguez) and her family and forget about the chaos going on around them because Jane the Virgin is one of the most heartwarming shows you’ll ever see on television.
4. Good Girls
You can watch NBC’s Good Girls if you want to see more examples of good people doing bad things for good reasons, but you don’t mind the mother-daughter dynamic. When three women are each financially stretched to their limit for different but equally compelling reasons, they decide to rob a grocery store, the dramedy revolves around Beth (Christina Hendricks), Annie (Mae Whitman), and Ruby (Retta). Everything changes, however, when the grocery store turns out to be a sham, and the more the women struggle to escape their criminal pasts, the deeper they fall into the rabbit hole. The show’s high-stakes drama and comedic elements are perfectly balanced, and the cast never fails to deliver. It just keeps getting crazier and crazier as the story progresses!
5. Love, Victor
When it comes to Ginny’s story and the politics of her high school clique, you should watch Love, Victor on Hulu if you haven’t already. Love, Simon follows Michael Cimino’s Victor Salazar as he becomes the new kid at Simon’s high school, where Nick Robinson plays Simon. When Victor begins to doubt his own sexuality, he turns to Simon for support, but Victor has a much harder time accepting the truth than Simon did in the film. With its first dances and first loves, the show evokes the awkwardness of high school. It’s heartbreaking to see Victor fight to be true to himself despite the pressure from his conservative Catholic family and his peers at school, but we have a feeling his story has a happy ending.
6. The Wilds
If you enjoyed Ginny & Georgia and are looking for more high-octane teen drama, check out Amazon’s The Wilds. This is Lost, but with all of the characters being teenage girls who get trapped on a mysterious island. Despite the absence of small-town politics, The Wilds has the same addictive quality as Ginny & Georgia: I can’t stop watching it. For a more engaging watch as you try to figure out how they got into this mess, The Wilds seamlessly weaves together the central story of each of the girls trapped on the island after their plane crashes. You may have been frustrated by Ginny & Georgia’s attempt to deal with a plethora of issues without adequate resources; however, The Wilds will not leave you feeling the same way.
7. Dear White People
Ginny and Georgia deal with a variety of issues, such as racism and prejudice, and if you’d like to see more of Ginny confronting racist teachers at her school or spending time with other students of color, Dear White People will satisfy your desires. Simien, who directed the first film, is back to direct Netflix’s follow-up to his 2014 feature, also titled Justin. They don’t hold back when it comes to calling out the ways in which modern society still tokenizes and exploits minorities, and there is no subject too taboo for Winchester University students. The Black Student Union show-within-the-show the students are obsessed with each season still provides plenty of laughs, so don’t worry.
8. Killing Eve
There has been a lot of discussion about Georgia, but if you were hooked on Ginny & Georgia because of Georgia and her mysterious past, I recommend you check out Killing Eve. An MI6 agent, Eve (Sandra Oh), becomes pathologically obsessed with Villanelle after learning of her whereabouts through a rumor (Jodie Comer). It turns out that the twisted bond that forms between Eve and Villanelle as a result of their cat-and-mouse game is one that neither of them wants to break. The characters’ complexities deepen as we learn more about them and the reasons behind their inability to let each other go. Killing Eve’s three seasons are available for immediate viewing, so you won’t have to wait long to find out what makes Georgia tick in Ginny & Georgia Season 2, which is currently in development.
