WATCH: Netflix show Ginny and Georgia is often compared to Gilmore Girls

Ginny and Georgia

A mother-daughter-duo is the front and centre of this new Netflix series, so it's no wonder that plenty of fans on social media have compared it to Gilmore Girls.

It introduces us to teenager Ginny Miller and her wayward mother, Georgia. The comedy follows their story as they navigate their new life after relocating. But things take a turn when Georgia's past starts to catch up with her, and threatens her family's new way of life.

Grace and Frankie

Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin have been friends and giants in the showbiz industry for a number of years, so having their own show was always going to be a success. The seven seasons focus on Grace Hanson and Frankie Bergstein, two unlikely friends who come together after their husbands announce that they are in love with each other and plan to marry.

The Marvelous Mrs Maisel

If you're a Gilmore Girls fan then you'll probably like The Marvelous Mrs Maisel on Amazon Prime, particularly as the creators behind it, Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino, were the writers for Gilmore Girls. It tells the story of Midge, a woman in 1950s New York wanting to pursue a career in stand-up comedy.

Parenthood

A familiar face pops up in this one. Lorelai actress Lauren Graham stars in Parenthood as another mum of teenagers navigating family life. The NBC show was a big hit from 2010 until 2015 and ran for six seasons, so there's plenty of content to enjoy.
