If you, too, have spent the latest phase of quarantine distracting yourself from the horrible weather and general terribleness of These Unprecedented Times by embarking on yet another rewatch of Gilmore Girls, have we got the show for you. Ginny and Georgia, which arrived on Netflix on February 24, starts with the same basic premise (and similarly alliterative title) as Gilmore Girls, then turns the craziness up to 11 (opens in new tab). The drama revolves around a young mother and her angsty teen daughter (opens in new tab)—and her young son, though he's sadly excluded from the show's title and most of its drama—who move to a small New England town. And that's pretty much where the similarities to Gilmore Girls end: In its 10 hourlong episodes, Ginny and Georgia proceeds to introduce a tangle of increasingly more intense plotlines that encompass everything from love triangles to childhood trauma to systemic racism to an ongoing murder investigation. The Lorelais could never!

Along the way to the show's cliffhanger-filled finale (opens in new tab), we're introduced to a wide range of characters across Wellsbury, Massachusetts, who are much nuttier and more diverse—and have way more skeletons in their closets—than anyone you'll meet in Stars Hollow. To help you keep track, here's your guide to the cast of Ginny and Georgia
