Although many shows of this genre are usually renewed for their next season before time, this was not the case with Sweet Magnolias. Hence, we are still unaware of the renewal status of Sweet Magnolias Season 3, even after 2 months after the release of Season 2.

What we believe is that the renewal depends on the viewership and the love for the series to decide whether or not it will be renewed for a Season 3. Seeing the initial solid viewership base, we are quite sure that the show will be returning for Sweet Magnolias Season 3, but we cannot be really sure after we have seen the rather trigger-happy phase of Netflix in 2022, so far.

What is the release date of Sweet Magnolias Season 3?

As we don’t even have some solid data on the renewal status of Sweet Magnolias Season 3, we don’t even have a release date. But if things go well for the show, we can expect Sweet Magnolias Season 3 to premiere sometime next year.

*Spoilers Ahead*

The season ended on a cliffhanger. Cal and Maddie’s relationship turned rocky, Isaac discovered that his mother is the newspaper reporter, Peggy, and a lot more happened in the season that led to the surprising finale. Without giving any more spoilers, all we could say is that not many fans were quite happy with the ending of Season 2, and that, obviously, made them ask for more in the face of Sweet Magnolias Season 3.

While many wanted more of the series, others were so disappointed with the Season 2 ending that Season 3 was a no-go for them. 

But whatever it is, fans’ bittersweet relationship with Season 2 ending and the loopholes in it definitely justifies the pouring demand for a Season 3.
