It was reported back in July 2020 that the Netflix Original series Sweet Magnolias was renewed for Season 2. It has been a while since then, but now we are able to report that filming is complete on the second season of the popular show. Read on to find out what we know about Season 2 so far.
Sweet Magnolias Season 2 on Netflix
Season 1 of the Netflix Original series Sweet Magnolias came at the perfect time. In May 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic had been raging for a few months. What better time to binge a sweet and cheesy series like this one? The series is an adaptation of the Sweet Magnolias books by author Sherryl Woods. Meanwhile, it was brought to the screen by Sheryl J. Andersen, best known for her work on Ties that Bind and Charmed.
Sweet Magnolias tells the story of the bond between three women living in the small Southern town of Serenity. All three friends are facing their own unique challenges. The series stars JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Brooke Elliott, Heather Headley and Jamie Lynn Spears.
Since the news came in July 2020 of the renewal for a second season, producers and cast have been busy filming in Georgia and finally, it is complete.
What can we expect from Season 2?
After the dramatic way Season 1 of the Netflix series ended, fans have plenty of questions going into the second season. The biggest cliffhanger at the end of the first season was the outcome of the fight at the after-prom party. This led to a car crash, with Kyle lying unconscious. However, at the time, the passenger in the car was not revealed, leaving one major question for the new season.
Meanwhile, Maddie is under pressure by the fact that her ex-partner has suggested they give their relationship another go. He used her children as a good excuse for them to give it a go. As for Helen, she had just split from her on-again-off-again boyfriend, so fans are waiting to see what happens, particularly as she is desperate for a child. Meanwhile, Dana also has her problems, trying to keep her business going, while finding out she may have an estranged son working in her kitchen.

As per IMDb, the cast includes Brooke Elliott as Dana Sue Sullivan, JoAnna Garcia Swisher as Maddie Townsend and Heather Headley as Helen Decatur. Carson Rowland plays Tyler “Ty” Townsend. Anneliese Judge plays the role of Annie Sullivan with Brooke Elliott as Dana Sue Sullivan.
