“I’m holding it together by duct tape and happy thoughts, and I’m near out of both.”
The well-known American soft romantic television series Sweet Magnolias is one of our go-to shows. The renowned novel converted into a series, for which we can say that they did a good job! As cleared above the series is based on Sherryl Woods’s famous novel, Sweet Magnolias. Thanks to Sheryl J. Andreson for bringing life to the series, while we should also appreciate Netflix for giving us such a huge platform.
Throughout both seasons, the show follows the lives of three best friends, Maddie, Helen, and Dana Sue, as they navigate the ups and downs of life in the small town of Serenity, South Carolina. The strong female leads and their friendship have won the hearts of countless. Ever since the second season aired on February 4, 2022, we have been waiting for another season. Another disappointing news is Sweet Magnolias Season 3 is not coming to Netflix in May 2023. If not this month, then when?
Why is Sweet Magnolias Season 3 not coming to Netflix in May 2023?
Well, before putting our research in the direction of the predicted release date, let’s know why Sweet Magnolias Season 3 is not coming to Netflix in May 2023. As we are all familiar with the first season of this marvelous series aired on May 19, 2020, after Netflix announced the production on September 27, 2018. Noting down the time gap between them, let’s move on to the release date of the second season which is February 4, 2022. However, the series got renewed on July 23, 2020. If we notice intensely, both seasons have almost two years gap between them.

So what it has to do with Sweet Magnolias Season 3 not coming to Netflix in May 2023? Well, the third installment renewal announcement got made on May 4, 2022, & according to the pattern, the series takes almost two years before releasing another season. It has been only 11 months since the renewal, if our estimation is correct next season won’t be released anytime soon.
When will Sweet Magnolias Season 3 release?
We understand that fans are dying to see more of the heartwarming series. After the renewal announcement, made by the executive producer Dan Paulson expressed how thrilled they are for the third season. The filming for the upcoming season began on July 18, when the team shared a picture of their directors’ chairbacks with the caption,” Shall we begin? So happy to be welcoming everyone home to Serenity for day one of filming season 3 of Sweet Magnolias!”

The production for the third season wrapped in October 2022 when Sheryl J Andreson tweeted,” We finished filming Season 3 last night. It’s been a Joy to spend another season in Serenity, working with, laughing with, and learning from amazing artists in the cast and crew. Our community made something beautiful for you. I’m grateful to them and excited for you to see it!!!”

Since the filming is done all that is left is post-production which hopefully won’t take long considering it doesn’t require that much work. If we are positive, the Third season might air in Monsoon 2023. We got whole summers in our hands to wait for another season.
The themes of Sweet Magnolias are centered around love, support, and the power of community to help us overcome life’s obstacles as the show explores the idea of second chances and the possibility of finding happiness and fulfillment after experiencing loss or setback. Hopefully, the next season will contain the same element, until then, we are happy to clear the rumor. Sweet Magnolias Season 3 is not coming to Netflix in April 2023, but that doesn’t mean it won’t release in 2023! Stay tuned for more news!
