If you haven’t been rooting for Max and Silver, you’re a fake fan


Ginny and Georgia season two has been out for under a week and every hardcore fan has finished it and is strapping themselves in for a rewatch. In the second season, fans see Ginny navigate going to therapy, new relationships and keeping Georgia’s many, many secrets. It isn’t just Ginny who is navigating new relationships as Max is dealing with the breakup between her and Sophie as well as a budding romance between her and new character Silver. Amongst the new additions to the cast, Katelyn Wells joined the Peaches family as Silver, the costume designer at the school play.
