“Ginny & Georgia,” which first debuted on Netflix in 2021, follows the lives of the Miller family as they move to a fictional affluent town in Massachusetts. Howey plays a 30-year-old mother who embarks on this new adventure with her 15-year-old daughter, Ginny, and 9-year-old son, Austin.

Howey has previously spoken about motherhood and how her relationship with her own mom has informed her role as a TV mother.

“My mom had me at 21, she had my sister at 25, and my mom really had to hustle,” she said on “The View” in January. “So a lot of the scenes that I think would’ve felt jarring between Ginny and Georgia were a little bit more normalized.


“I already had so much respect for my Mom, but going through the motions of the show, working or dealing with teenage characters, there are plenty parts of Ginny that I recognize in myself as well.”

In May, “Ginny & Georgia” was renewed for a third and fourth season at Netflix.
