Sweet Magnolias has proved to be one of the top quarantine shows in Netflix. As of late, fans have been loving themselves a good ol’ feel-good series like the adaptation of Sherryl Woods’ novels of the same name. With that much traction from the fans, you know they’ll be asking for more Sweet Magnolias, especially its second season.
However, according to various sources, the series has yet to be renewed for its second season––but that’s not new around here. As we all know, Netflix doesn’t usually go ahead and renew their just-released series and films––they get evidence of why the show should be renewed in the first place. This happens at a span of around 1 to 2 months, give or take, to give the streamer a chance to gauge if they should renew or cancel a certain film or series.
Didn't think #SweetMagnolias would be my thing, but it's been surprisingly good and a welcome mental getaway. Love the racial diversity, storyline and character development. And I stan the queen herself Helen Decatur. Shout out to Heather Headley.

On the bright side, though, Sweet Magnolias has already become a fan-favorite––and Netflix doesn’t cancel fan-favorites because they’d be getting flack on their social media pages. So, the question here is when––when is season 2 coming?
If Sweet Magnolias does get renewed for a second season, then we can expect it to come back to the streaming giant around 2021. However, for a show like this, it’s going to take around a year to have the next season ready––so we’re likely seeing the second season in the spring of 2021.
Because of the pandemic, though, uncertainty might come along with the releases of our beloved shows as the outbreak brought out the worst in TV and film productions. So for now, all we can really do is hope for the best––not just for the entertainment industry, but for the world.
If there are any more production delays, the second season of Sweet Magnolias will definitely get a good whiff of the hit. Hope for the best but expect the worst, people.
