Netflix has announced that their hit drama series Sweet Magnolias has been given a Season 3 renewal. The series stars JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Brooke Elliott, and Heather Headley as three best friends in the town of Serenity, South Carolina. Garcia Swisher plays Maddie Townsend, a divorced woman with three children. Brooke Elliott plays chef and restaurant owner Dana Sue Sullivan. Heather Headley plays attorney Helen Decatur. The three of them make up the Sweet Magnolias, who have opened up a spa for women in the town that they run while navigating the dramatic ins and outs of their own lives.
The three are set to return to the third season alongside showrunner and executive producer Sheryl J. Anderson (Ties That Bind). The series is based on the Sweet Magnolias series of novels by author Sherryl Woods, who is also an executive producer on the show, and comes from Harlequin imprint Mira Books.
Season 2 ended with Maddie, Helen and Dana Sue mourning the passing of Miss Frances (Cindy Karr). At the funeral, Ryan (Michael Shenefelt) asks Helen (who’s now in a relationship with Erik, played by Dion Johnstone) to marry him, while Maddie learns that ex-husband Bill (Chris Klein) is the biological father of Isaac (Chris Medlin). Then she also learns that her love interest Cal (Justin Bruening) has been arrested.
I love this show. I’m excited for the story to continue. Seasons 1 and 2 are available to watch now on Netflix.
