Sweet Magnolias season 2 has not been confirmed by Netflix yet but fans are already looking into the possibilities. And one theory suggests that Noreen might be returning to the series.
Noreen is played by Jamie Lynn Spears and she was seen exiting the show after dumping Bill Townsend (Chris Klein). And while it seemed like she was gone for good, that may not be the case after all.
There’s still a possibility that her storyline is not yet finished and she’s coming back for more. The question now is how?
How might Noreen return?
One theory suggests that the cliffhanger ending in Sweet Magnolias season 1 appeared to set up her comeback.
Fans may recall that Noreen is the number one reason why Bill leaves his wife Maddie (JoAnna Garcia Swisher). She was basically the “other woman” and in Ty’s (Carson Rowland) eyes, the villain.
But to young Kyle (Logan Allen), she was like a mentor to him, always ready to reach out to him in times of need.
Before the season finale, Kyle’s insecurities became a central plot. He got grounded on prom night and was just hanging out with Nellie Lewis (Simone Lockhart).
But things got complicated when some Serenity teenagers started organizing a house party. It ended up Kyle trying to defend his brother Ty during a rumpus with a classmate.
Then he took off and drove away with Ty’s vehicle, which led into a car crash. It’s then later found that Kyle was with someone else in the car.
As he was pulled out from the car wreck, it was revealed that an unidentified passenger was still trapped inside. There’s no definite clue as to who it was but Noreen can’t be ruled out.
If Noreen was the passenger, what will it mean for the show?
Obviously, there is no certainty yet but if Noreen was indeed the one in the car with Kyle, then it’s bound to be messy.
There are two possible directions if it really turns out to be Spears’ character. One is that Noreen survived the crash and the other is she will die as Kyle’s angelic figure.
If she survives, then it’s going to cause some tension between Maddie and Bill. It may also affect Ty in a way and may even boost his hatred towards Noreen.
On the other hand, she could be used as a protective figure and her bond with Kyle may just be even stronger.
Fans should stay tuned for more Sweet Magnolias season 2 updates.
