Here is everything you need to know about the current status of Sweet Magnolias Season 3.
Sweet Magnolias is a Sheryl J. Anderson-created American romantic drama streaming television series based on Sherryl Woods’ Sweet Magnolias novels. Since its launch in 2020, the series has amassed a considerable fan base and viewership.
The adaptation of the series from the novel has undoubtedly sparked the interest of both readers and television drama series fans in terms of how the characters and plotlines were translated onto the screen from the pages. As a result, the fans are eagerly anticipating the next part of the series.
We have some updates concerning Sweet Magnolias Season 3. As we looked over the list of new Netflix movies and episodes planned to launch in May 2022, we discovered that one of the fan-favorite feel-good series was absent, indicating that Sweet Magnolias will not be coming as soon as this May.
Here is everything you need to know about Sweet Magnolias Season 3.
Is Sweet Magnolias Season 3 coming to Netflix in May?
As of April 2022, there is no word on whether Sweet Magnolias will return for a third season. Netflix has not released any information on the series’ prospective renewal for a future installment. Hence. It is apparent that Sweet Magnolias will not be returning to your screens this May or in the following months.
We’d like to point out that Sweet Magnolias Season 2 premiered on February 4, 2022. Since then, it has only been two months, which is a rather short length of time for Netflix to disclose any confirmation about the series’ renewal.
As previously stated, the platform typically needs time between series to get such developments approved in order to begin production on time.
Fans of the series might still hold out hope, as the network may eventually decide to make the announcement in the near future if the demand of the fans is taken into consideration and the plot can be explored much further in favor of the characters and the show creators.
Sweet Magnolias Season 3 Potential Release Date
There have been no announcements of release dates. Sweet Magnolias, as previously stated, has not been renewed for the time being. As a result, if the series gets renewal updates ahead of time, Sweet Magnolia Season 3 will take some time to release on streaming services.
Initially, fans believed there was a significant chance Sweet Magnolias Season 3 would premiere in early or mid-2023. However, the longer it takes for the show to be renewed, the later the release date becomes. Right now, we’re predicting a spring 2023 release date at the most. Until then, we recommend that fans keep a close eye on such details when they are officially disclosed by Netflix.
Sweet Magnolias Season 3 Potential Plot
Season 2 ended with a major cliffhanger which is set up in a way that perfectly leads to the possibility of Sweet Magnolias Season 3, where at Miss Francis’ wake, Annie (Anneliese Judge) is accosted by a furious woman who accuses her mother, Dana Sue (Brooke Elliott) of being a “life ruiner,” while the same person is captured on camera puncturing the tyres of Dana Sue’s van shortly after.
When Annie, Maddie, and Helen saw the horrifying film, they exchanged glances before exclaiming, “She’s back…” This is a great indication that the series does have a chance and a story in development if it gets a chance to be explored further with these beloved characters.
Moreover, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Sheryl stated, “In a potential third season, it’s certainly something Cal needs to unpack and examine whether he has handled past events properly, why he lost it when not losing it is so important to him and what choices he can make going forward. Not just for himself, but also for the people he loves.”
She also added: ” If we have an opportunity to go forward [with season 3], there’s a certain amount of soul searching [Maddie] has to do to find out how she ended up in another relationship where she wasn’t getting the whole truth. Call is unintentionally triggering a lot of issues from her marriage with Bill.
Showrunner Sheryl J Anderson also spoke to TVLine, where she stated about the strange figure, “I will just say she has a past in common with our ladies and some other folks in town,”
She further added, “She’s been away for a while, but she has come back with an agenda. She has come home to settle some scores.”
There are other additional unsolved questions in the series that must be addressed. At the moment, fans can only hope that the series will be renewed and will not be canceled by Netflix, which has become increasingly common in recent months.
