World 'Ginny & Georgia': What the Cast and Crew Have Said About Season 2
The order of merit: Gold Coast Suns 2021 season
Who are the Suns players that should play to their optimum level in season 2021? To be eligible for selection, a player must have played at least five games in season 2020, so there can be a reference point as far as those players who apply their talent the best at AFL level. It appears as if all the Suns’ key players have a clean bill of health. It was tough to leave out players like David Swallow, Sam Day and Izak Rankine, but the reality is good players are going to miss out, because there are only ten players to choose from (plus an honourable mention).
Ginny & Georgia was released, and has shot to the top of the charts around the world. This bodes well for the comedy-drama getting a Season 2, though Netflix has not officially confirmed one is coming. Despite this, the show's cast and crew have been fielding questions about Season 2.
What the Ginny & Georgia have said about Season 2
Showrunner Debra J. Fisher was among the first to drop hints about what viewers should expect from Season 2. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, she said: "We want to keep talking about Ginny and Georgia for a very long time."
Georgia: calls to demonstrate after the arrest of an opposition leader
© Supplied by Le Point The opposition called on Tuesday to demonstrate in Georgia after the muscular arrest of a political figure of foreground, a measure that risks aggravating the political crisis underway in this Caucasian country since the legislative elections in October. Nika Melia, leader of the main Georgian opposition party, the United National Movement (MNU), was extirpated Tuesday morning from the premises of his political party in Tbilisi to be placed in pre-trial detention.
Asked by the interviewer: "What are your hopes there? We see Ginny ride off into the sunset, but is she going to copy her mom's life without even meaning to? Will we learn more of Georgia's past if you get a second season?" The showrunner replied: "Yes to all of your questions."
However, show creator Sarah Lampert seemed to confirm that no decision has made about Season 2 (though Netflix has been known in recent months to.)
She told Oprah Magazine: "Season 1 really did feel like a season one. We just started uncovering some of the layers for all characters, across the board, that we want to dive into. Deb and I are hoping we get the chance."
The pair, however, may be sworn to secrecy. Lampert told Entertainment Weekly: "Ee can't really talk about Season 2, but what I will say is, where we always wanted Season 1 to end was with Ginny protecting her mom, but by doing so, having blood on her hands."
Georgia GOP Declared 'Open Season' On Black Voting Rights, Rep. Hank Johnson Says
"If left to their own devices, Republicans will try to limit the ability of minority voters to exercise their fundamental right to vote," said Johnson, a Georgia Democrat who co-sponsored a federal election standards bill which Republicans have labeled "overreach."Representative Hank Johnson of Atlanta is among several House Democrats who are accusing Georgia Republicans of introducing new "voter integrity" bills which aim to end traditional get-out-the-vote campaigns in Black communities.
The stars of Ginny & Georgia on Netflix, meanwhile, were asked about Season 2 in a Collider interview. Brianne Howey, who plays Georgia, said: "Right now, we're really excited to share Season 1 and we're taking it all in, and there's nothing more that we can hope for than everyone enjoying this ride."
This was mirrored by Ginny star Antonia Gentry, who added: "Yeah, exactly. I'm just in the moment right now. And I hope everyone, by the end of it, feel a heartwarming or a heartbreak and we'll see what the future looks like. But right now it's just a blast."
The pair also reacted to the finale, which saw the pair separated. Asked whether Season 2 would see them back together, Howey said: "Of course they can. I need them to, yes." With Gentry adding, "knowing the two of them... I think, if anything, that would be the most interesting element of their relationship, that they both know, that they know, that they know."
Powerful Georgian oligarch looms over political crisis
A simmering political crisis in Georgia came to a head this week, with the surprise resignation of the prime minister and the dramatic arrest of an opposition leader in a police raid. The standoff took on dangerous dimensions on Monday when police used tear gas to raid the UMN's headquarters and arrest party leader Nika Melia. Melia, 41, a charismatic politician who united Georgia's traditionally divided opposition against Georgian Dream, has said his prosecution on "spurious" charges of "organising mass violence" during anti-government protests in 2019 was "Ivanishvili's whim".

Georgia Republicans look to roll back no-excuse absentee voting after Trump’s loss .
Georgia Republicans passed no-excuse absentee voting in 2005. Now they want to end it.The new bill would require voters to be absent from their precinct, have a physical disability or care for someone with one, observe a religious holiday, be unable to go to the polls because of their job, be at least 65 years old, or be covered by military absentee voting protections in order to get an absentee ballot. It also establishes ID requirements for requesting an absentee ballot, further complicating the requirements to receive one.
