Netflix's “Sweet Magnolias” has been renewed for a second season to the delight of fans. Here is all you need to know about the upcoming season of the romantic series.
After an eventful end of its first season, it has been confirmed that “Sweet Magnolias” has been renewed for a second season, leaving fans with excitement and curiosity about several things, including its release date.
According to Good Housekeeping, filming and production, which is supposed to take place in Georgia, wouldn’t kick off until the effect of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic wanes off.
Sherryl also expressed her satisfaction with the actors and actresses that got featured on “Sweet Magnolias” as they have executed their roles flawlessly.
However, the uncertainty didn't stop its cast from being excited about the great news. Actress JoAnna Garcia Swisher (who plays the character of Maddie Townsend), who was glad about the renewal took to Instagram to tease fans that season 2 was going to be filled with “hope, comfort, drama, and goodness.”
The show’s second season, which might enjoy the comeback of all its beloved main stars, would focus on Kyle (Logan Allen’s) condition following the car accident.
Deadline explained that the romantic drama is based on the famous sequence of books written by the former journalist and now-writer, Sherryl Woods.
The show focuses on the lives of Maddie (JoAnna), Helen (Heather Headley), and Dana Sue (Brooke Elliott) as they try to strike a balance between family, relationships, and careers in the town of Serenity, SC.
Showrunner Sheryl J. Anderson and Woods executively are set to produce this season together. The author recently spoke up about her expectations from season 2 when she told Elle Magazine:
“I think a lot of it is going to be further exploration of what's been started this season. We're going to see where Isaac fits in, in the community. And we're going to see other sides of people's personalities.”

Sherryl also expressed her satisfaction with the actors and actresses that got featured on “Sweet Magnolias” as they have executed their roles flawlessly. One of her favorite stars just happens to be JoAnna, who was on the verge of taking a break from acting when she got offered her role as Maddie.
According to Glamour, even though the 40-year-old told her agent to avoid calling her during her break, her agent reached out to her barely three days later.
After hearing her agent claim that “‘they’d love for you to do this show and move to Atlanta in a few days,’” and reading the script, JoAnna’s mind was made up. The first season of “Sweet Magnolias” is available for streaming on Netflix.
