The magnolias are almost back in bloom. After the rollercoaster ride of Season 1's drama, Sweet Magnolias ended with a ton of cliffhangers, which will finally be cleared up in the follow-up season. If you just can't wait to return to Serenity, South Carolina, to catch up with Maddie, Dana Sue, and Helen, then check out all the exciting details about Sweet Magnolias Season 2, including Netflix's release date, casting updates, and more:
Spoiler alert: This post contains spoilers from throughout Sweet Magnolias Season 1. The Netflix show, which is adapted from author Sherryl Woods' novel series of the same name, is all about three lifelong friends helping each other through some messy drama in the small town of Serenity. The first season left fans with a ton of questions, as each of the three women faces a romantic shocker. Maddie (JoAnna Garcia Swisher) is unsure of her future with her new boyfriend Cal, and things only got more confusing when her ex-husband Bill tried to reconcile with her. As for Helen (Heather Headley), she finally ended things with Ryan after realizing he wouldn't change his mind about having kids. But the real surprise was Dana Sue's (Brooke Elliott) estranged husband Ronnie suddenly returning to town.
The biggest cliffhanger of all, though, involved a mysterious car crash in the final moments of Season 1. The crash left Maddie's son Kyle unconscious, but there was also an unseen passenger in the car with him.
The mystery of who else was with Kyle in the car is major as fans prepare for Season 2.
