Sweet Magnolias season 2 is heading back to Netflix after a successful 10-episode run in the last season. Moreover, the trio of lifelong best friends will reprise their roles.
The series is an adaptation from Sherryl Woods’ novel of the same name that initially launched on Netflix this May. Fans were kept entertained because of the plot’s true to life portrayals. Furthermore, season 1 ended with a cliffhanger, and fans are now anticipating for more drama and romance in Sweet Magnolias season 2.
Showrunner Sheryl Anderson confirmed the renewal
Talking to Glamour, showrunner and executive producer, Sheryl Anderson shared her excitement on the series’ comeback. She said:
“I’m thrilled and excited to come back with a cast and a crew that I love so much. It’s such a valentine to everybody who worked so hard to make Serenity such a beautiful place. JoAnna, Brooke, and Heather and I were jumping up and down while texting each other, and we look forward to doing that over Zoom too.”
Sweet Magnolias season 2 plot details
There are so many stories from the last season to follow through in the next one. The ladies of Serenity, Maddie, Dana Sue, and Helen are yet to face bigger problems. Season 1 ended with a car crash accident with Kyle Townsend being carried on a stretcher. However, the identity of the passenger was a mystery. Showrunner Anderson has been quiet but promised to reveal the mysterious passenger “at the first table read”.

Another interesting turn to look forward to in the next season is whether Noreen will reprise her role or not. Her relationship with Maddie’s ex-husband, Bill appears to be on the verge of breaking. Bill, on the other hand, is seemingly seeing Maddie in a different light and wants to reconcile with her.
The biggest twist that could happen in season 2 is the possible rift between the trio. Actress Heather Headley who plays Helen opened up about the possibility. She said:
“I wouldn’t be surprised if something shakes the friendship a little bit, because something always does. A man? Money? I want to know what shakes their foundation a little bit because how they come back together will be a beautiful thing.”
