“Sweet Magnolias,” an American romantic drama streaming TV series, created by Sheryl J. Anderson and inspired by the books of Sweet Magnolias written by Sherryl Woods. It features JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Brooke Elliott, Heather Headley, Logan Allen, Anneliese Judge, Carson Rowland, Justin Bruening, Chris Klein, Jamie Lynn Spears, Dion Johnstone, and Brandon Quinn.
The series was released on May 19, 2020, on Netflix. The second season of Sweet Magnolias was renewed in July 2020. The ten-episode second season was launched on February 4, 2022.
The official premise revolves around “three South Carolina women, best friends since childhood, as they shepherd each other through the complexities of romance, career, and family.”
Although it has been that long since the last season aired, fans of this show are already eagerly looking forward to the next season as it ended on a suspense note and left an opening for the next chapter.
Here’s what you need to know about the third season of Sweet Magnolias.
Has Sweet Magnolias season 3 been renewed?
Currently, the series has not been renewed for a third season but there’s no need to panic as the second season left the door open for the next chapter and we’re certain that new episodes will arrive before you know it although the renewal announcement will probably take a while.
Moreover, the streaming giant will not discontinue shows that occupy their top 10 spot just as Sweet Magnolias had, with Netflix going all the way as to renew successful shows even if the tale doesn’t necessarily need another instalment.
When will Sweet Magnolias season 3 premiere?
As previously mentioned, Sweet Magnolias is yet to be renewed. If we look at the release timeline, the first season was released on May 19, 2020, with 10 episodes. The second season premiered on February 4, 2022, with 10 episodes. The series might likely take a gap of nearly two years which means that new episodes won’t arrive until sometime in 2024 or it could arrive at the end of 2023 although this seems quite impossible but we don’t know just yet since Netflix is full of surprises.
The Cast of Sweet Magnolias Season 3: Who’s in it?
If ever the third season of Sweet Magnolias is renewed, all the central characters that appeared in the first and second seasons are likely to return for the next season which includes–
- JoAnna Garcia Swisher (as Maddie Townsend)
- Heather Headley (as Helen Decatur)
- Logan Allen (as Kyle Townsend)
- Anneliese Judge (as Annie Sullivan)
- Carson Rowland (as Tyler “Ty” Townsend)
- Justin Bruening (as Cal Maddox)
- Chris Klein (as Bill Townsend)
- Jamie Lynn Spears (as Noreen Fitzgibbons)
- Dion Johnstone (as Erik Whitley)
- Brandon Quinn (as Ronnie Sullivan)
It’s not known if there will be new characters introduced in the third season but it would be interesting to see new faces to keep the viewers excited.
What would be the storyline of Sweet Magnolias Season 3?
In the second season of Sweet Magnolias, the story ended on a major cliffhanger keeping on the tradition from the first season.
The last season ended with a proposal and a predicament that took place at a restaurant leading to Cal Maddox (Justin Bruening) being arrested. We are also aware that someone has come back after the central trio witnessed footage of tires being cut on Ronnie Sullivan’s (Brandon Quinn) vehicle.
Helen Decatur (Heather Headley) has a tough time in the second season with several traumatic occurrences but it eventually ends with a proposal by Ryan Wingate (Michael Shenefelt). The third season will likely show us the decision she takes.
Speaking with TVLine, star Sheryl J. Anderson responded to several most asked questions that fans have after the ending of the second season. Anderson was asked about the culprit who sliced Dana’s tires, she explained “I will just say she has a past in common with our ladies and some other folks in town,” adding “She’s been away for a while, but she has come back with an agenda. She has come home to settle some scores.”
Anderson also disclosed that viewers might get to see Victoria return and indicated that there are more “troublemakers” returning in the upcoming season. Dana’s relationship was dealt with where Anderson explained that a three-way connection will possibly proceed to be a challenge.
In an interview with Glamour, Anderson confessed that there isn’t just one question leading into the third season as compared to the second season. “I hope the main question that everybody has at the end of season two is: Are they going to get a season three?”
With that said, the show’s future remains certain and we absolutely can’t wait to witness what the upcoming season has in store for us.
