January 7, 2023

It’s a new year and you know what that means… another twelve months of endless potential on Netflix. The streamer is sure to release a wide range of exciting and surprising projects over the course of 2023, and they’ve certainly gotten off to a good start already. After all, Ginny And Georgia has finally returned to the screens.

Created by Sarah Lampert, the first series of the comedy-drama made a huge impression on viewers when it first premiered in February 2021.

After meeting 15-year-old Ginny and her mother Georgia, we were hooked.

We had to wait a long time for a sequel. Alas, Season 2 arrived on Thursday, January 5, 2023.

The first episode gave fans a lot to digest. However, some may find themselves pausing the installment to contemplate the Jack and Jill reference in Ginny And Georgia.

The Jack and Jill reference in Ginny And Georgia season 2 explained

In Season 2 Episode 1, Ginny and Austin run away to Zion’s house, where they have dinner with the rest of the family.

Although Zion’s parents are more than happy to receive them, it is soon established that they are in conflict over the fact that Ginny has a predominantly white upbringing, the argument being that she needs “roots”. .

Ginny is said to “don’t even know Jack and Jill”, and no, that’s not a reference to the nursery rhyme.

The reference is actually to Jack and Jill of America, a leadership organization formed during the Great Depression in 1938. It was started by African American mothers with the goal of bringing children together in a helpful, social and cultural environment.
