The first season of Netflix’s Ginny & Georgia ends with a bunch of revelations and a rash decision. It’s a perfect set up for another season of the series, which plays like Gilmore Girls turned up to 11. Yes, the show follows former teen mom Georgia, who moves her now surly teenage daughter Ginny¬†to a precious New England town after the death of her rich yoga-mogul husband. Georgia has a lot of secrets in her past and Ginny has a lot of angst. But is there officially more of their story in the works? Here’s what we know.

Is Ginny & Georgia renewed for a Season 2? 

Not yet. But Netflix rarely doesn’t give their popular shows a chance to expand, so¬†a renewal is likely in the cards.

When is it debuting? 

Slow down! As I said, it hasn’t even been renewed. We’ll keep you updated when we know more.

What will Season 2 be about? 

OK,¬†here’s where we can start speculating. Season 1 ends with the revelation that, yup, Georgia (Brianne Howey) definitely murdered her ex-husband who was creepy to Ginny. (She also murdered an earlier husband who was also a piece of shit.) Ginny (Antonia Gentry), upon getting confirmation about all of her worst fears about her mother, decides to run away, taking her little brother (Diesel La Torraca) along with her. Presumably, Season 2 will open with all the fall out of Ginny’s actions.

Plus, there are a ton of dangling questions, among them: Will Georgia ever get together with cute restauranteur Joe (Raymond Ablack), who she actually met when she was a runaway teen herself? Will private investigator Gabriel Cordova (Alex Mallari Jr.) continue to try to out Georgia for her misdeeds? Will Georgia end up marrying the hunky mayor Paul (Scott Porter)? And what about Ginny’s love triangle? Will she get back together with next-door neighbor Marcus (Felix Mallard)? Will she ever make up with her friends, among them¬†Marcus’ twin sister Max (Sara Waisglass)? Seriously! There is so much left unanswered.

Any word from the creator on what’s in store?¬†

It all comes back to the fact that Ginny and Georgia are more alike than they are different, even though Ginny is really pissed off at her mom. Creator Sarah Lampert told O that the writers always wanted to build to that cliffhanger. “She’s doing exactly what her mother does: Always running,” Lampert said. It’s hard to imagine that Ginny will be gone from Wellsbury very long. Remember when Buffy left Sunnydale at the beginning of Season 3 to waitress in a diner, but was soon back at her old haunts? Yeah, it’ll probably be¬†something like that.

Will we ever get more details on the tap dance flash mob? 

I sure hope so. Ginny’s boyfriend Hunter (Mason Temple) busts out a happy birthday tap dance at school with little explanation and I still have so many questions.
