The television show, adapted from a novel written by Sherryl Woods, debuted on Netflix in May 2020, and the network plans to release the second season of the show in 2022.
The feel-good series (compared to Firefly Lane, Virgin River, and Ginny & Georgia) is about three longtime friends named Maddie, Helen, and Dana Sue, who live in Serenity in the South. They support and encourage one another as they navigate love, family, and jobs in their community.
Did Netflix Renew Sweet Magnolias for season 3?
We are still awaiting an official announcement regarding the renewal or cancellation of the show two months after the second season’s release. Nevertheless, we received confirmation early in May that additional episodes would be produced.
Again, it has been announced that there will be ten episodes in Sweet Magnolias Season 3.
The following tweets were posted on the Sweet Magnolias Writers’ Twitter feed after the confirmation of renewal:
“Get ready, y’all, because we’re going home to Serenity!” We are overjoyed to let you know that Sweet Magnolias will return for a third season. Can’t wait to greet you all at the door when you return!”
When will Season 3 of Sweet Magnolias release on Netflix?
On July 20th, 2023, at 12:01 AM Pacific Standard Time, all 10 episodes of Season 3 will become available on Netflix worldwide.
When and where was the filming of the third season of Sweet Magnolias?
Covington and Atlanta in the state of Georgia in the United States are once again serving as the primary filming locations for the upcoming third season.
At the beginning of June 2022, the production crew for the show began searching for new filming locations. Sheryl Anderson wrote the following in an Instagram post:
“Thrilled to be plotting and planning Season 3 with old and new friends!!!”
On July 1st, the program star, Joanna Garcia Swisher, announced on Instagram that she had colored her hair again to reprise her part in the third season. This gives the impression that filming is about to begin.
Swisher stated the following in his post:
“‘Maddie’s’ lob is back 💇🏻♀️ Could only mean one thing… #sweetmagnoliasnetflix #season3”
The official Sweet Magnolias page posted that they had begun filming on July 18th, 2022, indicating that production had commenced in July 2022. The following was added as the caption for their post:
“Should we get started?'” Having everyone back at Serenity for the first day of filming Season 3 of Sweet Magnolias has been a pleasure!
Sheryl J. Anderson made the following statement in response to the news that production had begun on the third season:
“Returning to Serenity is not only a pleasure but also a privilege and a blessing.”
According to many tweets, Norman Buckley, who has previously directed many episodes of the show, is anticipated to resume his role as director. Buckley also continues to act in the capacity of co-executive producer for the show.
On September 3rd, 2022, Sheryl J. Anderson announced on Instagram that they had completed fifty percent of the filming, and the showrunner acknowledged a gelato vendor for their contribution, saying:
Many thanks to @dulceartisangelato for assisting us in commemorating the milestone halfway through the year!!! It is hard to realize that we have already filmed half of Season 3. When you’re surrounded by individuals you enjoy working with, time seems to fly by.
On October 21st, 2022, the production was officially confirmed to have been completed.
Sheryl J. Anderson tweeted the following to confirm that the wrap has been completed:
“Last night was the last night of filming for Season 3. Spending another season with the Serenity cast and crew has been a wonderful opportunity to learn from, have fun with, and grow professionally alongside some truly talented individuals. Our group came together to create something lovely for you. I owe a debt of gratitude to them, and I can’t wait for you to see it!!!”
Additionally, a post was made by the Sweet Magnolias Writers’ Room to clarify that filming has ended.
Anderson has shared many images from behind the scenes throughout filming, including one from August 27th that shows night shooting at a basketball court.
Given that it takes the show anywhere from six to nine months to conclude post-production, the third season of Sweet Magnolias will premiere somewhere in the spring of 2023. Nevertheless, it might be as far off as the summer or fall of 2023.
According to a press statement issued in October 2022, the show is scheduled to return in Spring 2023.
