The jury is still out whether DIGGSTOWN — the Canadian legal drama starring GENERAL HOSPITAL alum Vinessa Antoine (ex-Jordan) — will be renewed by the CBC network for a fourth season. But the star has another gig lined up to fill her time until then: Antoine has been tapped for a role in the second season of the hit Netflix family drama GINNY & GEORGIA!
The former GH star announced her good news on social media, sharing a carousel of photos on Instagram. The pictures included the cover page of a script for the series watermarked with her name, a shadow and sunlight reflected on a door, sunlight coming in through a window as two people (presumably her sons) sit at a table, one of her kids snoozing in bed with the family’s pet, and a lit candle and mug on a windowsill. “The light finds me even in the darkest of spaces,” Antoine captioned the photo dump. “Happy to join this show.”
GINNY & GEORGIA debuted on the streaming service in February 2021 and was a popular hit for Netflix. Something of a modern-day GILMORE GIRLS, the series follows 30-something single mom Ginny and her kids, Georgia and Austin, after the family relocates to New England looking for a fresh start. In addition to exploring the typical themes of marriage, friendship, and family drama, GINNY & GEORGIA also tackles some heavier topics like bullying, racial issues, body image, domestic violence, and self-harm.
The 10-episode second season is currently filming in Toronto with production reportedly scheduled to run through early April. As of press time, Antoine’s casting had not been announced by Netflix, and the actress did not divulge any details regarding what character she’ll be playing. However, according to the cover page of the script that Antoine shared, it seems that she’ll be appearing in the sixth episode, titled “A Very Merry Ginny & Georgia Christmas Special.” And based on Antoine’s word choice — that she is joining the show, not just appearing on it — there’s a good chance that the actress will be seen in more than just the one holiday episode!
