Netflix’s Ginny & Georgia dropped into the streaming library just days ago and it’s being compared to Gilmore Girls. Is this new Netflix Original a modern day Gilmore Girls? Let’s take a closer look at these two shows and see what subscribers are saying.

What is Gilmore Girls?

As hard as it might be to believe, it’s been 21 years since the first episode of Gilmore Girls premiered. The series ran for seven seasons. It aired the final season in May of 2007. The series takes place in Connecticut. And, it fells the story of multigenerational drama that focuses largely on a mother and daughter.

A basic synopsis of the series reads on Google: “The show’s main focus is on the relationship between single mother Lorelai Gilmore and her daughter Rory, who live in Stars Hollow, Connecticut, a small fictional town filled with colorful characters.”

Nearly a decade after the series ended, Netflix did reboot it for a look at what the characters have been up to. The reboot is called Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life and it is available for streaming.

What is Ginny & Georgia?

Ginny & Georgia also tell the story of a mother and daughter bond. Georgia is the mother of two children whom she had with two different men. For some reason, Austin’s dad Gil is not in the picture. She claims he’s in jail. And, she jokingly tells her friend, Ellen, she put him there. Zion, Ginny’s dad, does seem to be involved in the story to some extent. Though, he seems to be kept at arm’s length from his daughter.

A basic synopsis of the series on Google reads: “Teenage Ginny and her family yearn to put down roots in a picturesque New England town after years on the run.”

Presently, we aren’t sure if Netflix will renew the series for a second season. But, subscribers are hopeful.

How are they similar?

Ginny & Georgia has that mother and daughter storyline that Gilmore fans crave. Georgia has some secrets from her past that she’d rather her daughter not know. Sound familiar?

How are they different?

On Twitter, some fans are saying Ginny & Georgia is like Gilmore Girls “with bigger boobs.” And, we think what they mean by that is Ginny & Georgia is a whole lot more mature. But, shows with a whole lot of adult scenes are becoming more and more common. So, the shows are different… But, it is more of a modern day Gilmore Girls with current issues woven into the storyline.

Do subscribers think Ginny & Georgia compares to Gilmore Girls?

Taking to Twitter, here’s what subscribers think about whether this series is a Gilmore Girls ripoff or not.

Not everyone thought the two shows were not comparable. Some considered it to be a modern day or Netflix themed Gilmore Girls with upgraded cast members.

Some Netflix subscribers really just aren’t sure how to feel.
