Some Good News About 'Ginny And Georgia' Season 3

January 19, 2023

Ginny and Georgia fans have been biting their nails, waiting for some good news about Netflix renewing the show for season 3. Well, I cannot share that today, as Netflix still has not announced anything. And yet, I have good news all the same.

Even with the cancel-happy Netflix here, at this point, fans should be effectively 100% confident that Ginny and Georgia is getting renewed for season 3.

Why? Simple, performance, which is really the only thing Netflix responds to.

Ginny and Georgia debuted on January 5, 2023. Here on January 19, two weeks later, it has been the #1 series on the service every day since, a full two weeks on top of the charts. It dethroned Kaleidoscope, and nothing else has come close to it since.

This is in addition to impressive metrics we already have out of the show, like 180 million hours watched in its first four days of release. Netflix’s last weekly chart has actually both seasons of Ginny and Georgia in the #1 and #2 spots, indicating either new interest or the series, or dedicated fans watching season 1 as a refresher, given that it took two years to get a second season.

What we’re seeing here also indicates a jump in interest from season 1, something Netflix always wants to see. While Ginny and Georgia was popular enough to get a season 2 in the first place, back in 2021 when season 1 debuted, it did not land itself on Netflix’s most popular shows of the year list back then. It was behind the likes of Lupin, Who Killed Sara?, Sex/Life and New Amsterdam. Now, interestingly, Ginny and Georgia has been planted at #1 for two weeks and actively holding off a new season of New Amsterdam as we speak.

And then, the final factor, cost. This is simply not an expensive show in the grand scheme of Netflix productions. There are no elaborately choreographed fight scenes, no sci-fi or fantasy landscapes to render. And there are no A-list actors on board here demanding huge salaries, albeit I hope the cast is able to negotiate some raises, given the show’s popularity.

So, this is a relatively cheap show performing extremely well in its second season and seemingly outpacing the first. If that’s not a recipe for an almost guaranteed renewal from Netflix, I don’t know what is, and the showrunners have already laid out big plans for season 3 in post-air interviews. Netflix does tend to keep fans waiting, even for shows that are obviously getting renewed like say, Wednesday, so two weeks is simply too early. Expect to hear something more in the 4-6 week range, but yes, it’s going to be good news.
