Sweet Magnolias Season 2 Has Wrapped, Here's When We Could Actually See It On Netflix

Friends, it's already been well over a year since we were able to enjoy the small town drama endured by best friends Dana Sue, Helen, and Maddie on Sweet Magnolias Season 1. Though the romantic series was renewed way back in July 2020, the world had other plans when it came to the cast and crew being able to get into production. Luckily, the hit was finally able to wrap filming on Season 2 recently, and we now know when we might actually be able to see it return to Netflix.

The wait for Season 2 of Sweet Magnolias has been a long and difficult one. However, fans can now break out the margarita night supplies (make mine a double), because not only has the new season wrapped, but author Sherryl Woods, who wrote the novels the show is based on, recently told Southern Living that we could see Sweet Magnolias Season 2 as soon as January or February 2022!

The show debuted on Netflix on May 19, 2020, and arrived at the perfect time for those of us who love small town romances with loads of drama to get our binge on. But, the worldwide health crisis that had already shuttered a number of productions led to the series not being able to get up and running on new episodes easily. This meant that we had to put our hopes on hold for a quick-to-come-by resolution to some massive cliffhangers for Season 1, but the wait to find out who else was in that dangerous car crash sounds like it will soon be at an end.

You didn't forget the car accident, did you? OK, as a refresher, Maddie's sons, Kyle and Tyler, got into a big ol' argument at a prom after party, which led to Kyle running off, jumping into Tyler's car angry and driving away. As you might imagine, in his not-so-great mental state, young Kyle crashed the car, and while we saw that he was alive but injured in the finale, there was also a mystery passenger who needed to be rescued. Viewers were left wondering both who this person was and how badly they'd been hurt.

Showrunner Sheryl J. Anderson has already promised that Season 2 will reveal even more prom night secrets than the passenger of that car, and that they'll answer our remaining Season 1 questions, as well. But, it also turns out that there's even more for fans to look forward to when Sweet Magnolias returns. As Woods added in her interview:

Season 2 picks up literally minutes after the end of Season 1. There are a lot of consequences to what you find out in that scene.

Minutes?! This means that the new season could start at the hospital, or even at the accident site as they pull the second person out of the car! Woods also said that Season 2 offers plenty of "twists and turns" for those who've read her books, so it sounds like Sweet Magnolias will be quite the treat for fans when it returns to Netflix.

As we wait for a firm premiere date on Sweet Magnolias Season 2, be sure to investigate all of the upcoming romantic TV shows and see what's coming to the small screen soon with our 2021 fall TV schedule!
