People are saying this Netflix show is the new 'Gilmore Girls'
One of the most beloved TV shows of all time is Gilmore Girls. However, it could have a rival (okay, reincarnation) in the form of Netflix's new show, Ginny & Georgia.
This the trailer for the last ever season of Gilmore Girls:
Ginny & Georgia is also a mother-and-daughter coming-of-age series and is set to hit our screens through the streaming platform next summer, although no official release date has been announced.
The synopsis of Ginny & Georgia was sent to Bustle in a press release that read:
"Angsty and awkward fifteen-year-old Ginny Miller (Gentry) often feels more mature than her thirty-year-old mother, the irresistible and dynamic Georgia Miller (Howey). After years on the run, Georgia desperately wants to put down roots in picturesque New England and give her family something they've never had... a normal life. For Ginny, that means navigating a prestigious school, rising popularity, and complicated love interests. But it's not all carpool and Kombucha as Georgia's past threatens her and her family's new way of life."
Netflix has ordered 10 episodes of the show so far, Glamour reports.
It wouldn't take an English teacher to work out the similarities between this synopsis and Gilmore Girls. Both shows have a mother-daughter duo who are close in age, and they're both set in New England. However, there are differences. Ginny, for example, has a younger brother.
Understandably, the announcement of the show prompted quite the response on Twitter:
"Soooo gilmore girls [sic] but with a twist?" one Twitter user wrote.
A second remarked, "Sounds like Gilmore girls but edgier."
Ginny & Georgia's cast will be made up of the following actors. Diesel La Torraca as Austin, Ginny's "sweet, innocent, perpetually unkempt younger son"; Schitt’s Creek’s Jennifer Robertson as Ellen, a working mom and the Miller's neighbor, Felix Mallard as Marcus, the "edgy, bad boy across the street", Sara Waisglass as Maxine, Marcus' popular twin sister, Scott Porter as Mayor Paul Randolph, and Raymond Ablack as Joe, the restaurateur who "can't help but notice when Georgia moves to town." Eek!
But as the show is currently in production, we won't really know if it's this generation's answer to Gilmore Girls until it airs.
