Netflix Just Renewed ‘Sweet Magnolias’ for Season 2—Here’s Everything We Know
*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
We have a million questions after watching Sweet Magnolias season one. For example, why did Kyle take Ty’s car? And who was sitting in the passenger seat? And lastly, will the Netflix series return for another installment?
Well, (good news!) the streaming service just renewed the popular series for season two, and yes, the main cast members will reprise their roles. Here’s everything we know about Sweet Magnolias season two.
1. When does 'Sweet Magnolias' season 2 premiere?
In July 2020, Netflix announced that Sweet Magnolias will return for season two. The streaming service didn’t reveal any further details about the premiere date or the new episodes, though we expect them to pick up right where we left off in the season one finale.
2. Who's in 'Sweet Magnolias' season 2?
Netflix confirmed that Joanna Garcia Swisher (Maddie), Heather Headley (Helen) and Brooke Elliott (Dana Sue) will return for Sweet Magnolias season two. Other potential cast members include Anneliese Judge (Annie), Carson Rowland (Ty) and Justin Bruening (Cal).
While season one ended on a cliffhanger, we hope to see Logan Allen (Kyle) reprise his role. However, the actor confessed that even he doesn’t know what happens next.
“Believe it or not, the writers didn’t tell us anything. I don’t know what’s happening,” he told PureWow. “I’m pretty much in the same boat as you guys, but the finale definitely left us all speechless. So, I’m as anxious as you guys are for hopefully a second season.”
3. What is 'Sweet Magnolias' season 2 about?
Since Sweet Magnolias season one is based on Sherryl Woods’s book series of the same name, season two will likely follow suit. Although the author previously revealed the ending wasn’t in the books, she admitted there’s still more story to tell.
“When I read the script for the tenth episode, I immediately emailed [series creator] Sheryl Anderson and said, ‘Netflix needs to renew this minute,’” she told People. “There’s a lot more to each of their stories.”
4. Will season 2 have more romance?
In addition to Maddie and Cal, season one also left us wondering about another relationship: Ty and Annie. Carson Rowland told PureWow he’s excited to see where their story line progresses, despite the rocky start.
“I would love to see what happens with Ty and Annie,” he said. “They are essentially ‘meant to be’ and the first season was a chaotic one for those two and their relationship.”
