Another drama series to binge on? Oh, go on then


Netflix has just released a new drama series for us all to get our teeth sunk into. And what happens when there’s a new binge watchable show? You aggressively Google the cast members and learn everything you could possibly know about them – so here, make a start on the stars of Ginny and Georgia.

The series is a mother-daughter drama which tells the story of a 30-year-old mom (Georgia) and her 15-year-old daughter (Ginny), who finally settle down in a wholesome New England town for a fresh start after years on the road and the death of Ginny’s step dad.

And you’ll definitely recognise a few of the faces in the cast of Ginny of Georgia on Netflix. So, meet them all here.
