Netflix has officially announced the renewal of Sweet Magnolias for a fourth season, solidifying its position as a fan-favorite.
The show’s prior season was in the global top 10 for over 10 weeks in more than 60 countries, per the streaming service. Sheryl J. Anderson will continue as the showrunner and executive producer, with Dan Paulson returning as an executive producer. The series stars JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Brooke Elliott and Heather Headley.
Based on the beloved novel series by New York Times best-selling author Sherryl Woods, Sweet Magnolias captures the lives of lifelong best friends Maddie, Dana Sue and Helen as they navigate the complexities of relationships, family and careers in the idyllic town of Serenity, S.C.
Here’s the official description of the past season:
Following the brawl at Sullivan’s, Maddie wrestles with the best way to help Cal and works to clear her own emotional path. Helen faces difficult decisions about the men in her life. And Dana Sue searches for a way to use Miss Frances’ check to help the community, without upending her family. The identity of the tire slasher sends shockwaves through Serenity, the recall causes unexpected consequences, and there are romantic surprises in every generation. Throughout the season, the ladies tackle these problems — and all the complications they cause — with their trademark warmth, humor, and devotion to each other and those they love. And margaritas.
Season 3 also starred Chris Klein (Bill Townsend), Jamie Lynn Spears (Noreen Fitzgibbons), Justin Bruening (Cal Maddox), Carson Rowland (Tyler Townsend), Logan Allen (Kyle Townsend), Chris Medlin (Isaac Downey), Anneliese Judge (Annie Sullivan), Brandon Quinn (Ronnie Sullivan) and Dion Johnstone (Erik Whitley).
