‘Sweet Magnolias’ Season 3: When Will It Be Released & What Happened Last Season
Sweet Magnolias has become one of Netflix’s most popular shows in the last two years, which is why it has been renewed for a third season! The cast and crew have been working hard all summer to film new episodes, which are expected to be completed soon. The show, based on Sherryl Woods’ novel series, stars JoAnna Garcia Swisher (Maddie), Brooke Elliott (Dana Sue), Heather Headley (Helen), and Jamie Lynn Spears (Noreen) and just finished its second season in February 2022.
Several memorable moments occurred during the most recent season, leaving fans of the show eager to learn what will happen next in the lives of the characters. Back in February, the show left fans with a cliffhanger when Maddie, Helen, and Dana Sue mourned the death of Miss Frances (Cindy Karr). Following the funeral, Ryan unexpectedly proposed to Helen and there was a fight at a restaurant, which resulted in Cal being taken away in handcuffs. It was also clear that someone had returned after the main girls saw footage of Dana Sue’s delivery van’s tires being slashed.
Allison Gabriel’s Mary Vaughn went to extensive lengths in season 2 of ‘Sweet Magnolias’ to ensure no one has a happy ending. “I felt like Frankenstein’s Monster after reading the script for that episode,” Allison revealed in an EXCLUSIVE interview with HollywoodLife. “I called my husband, a little teary.” I told him I was leaving this job because he was such a horrible person. When I finally spoke with one of the writer’s assistants, they said, ‘No, no. That isn’t going to happen!”
“The second season was such a surprise to me,” she continued. I wasn’t sure if I was still playing her well because I didn’t feel like I had a handle on it. It felt really chaotic,” she said, adding that the storyline about “blackmailing the coach” came as a “complete surprise” to her. “I couldn’t even imagine what that would look like or how it could possibly work,” Allison recalled. “I had to make sense of it and make it real for myself as an actor.” So, I believe the character’s motivation is to help the public see her as this all-powerful, all-involved woman. The Serenity “Queen.”
Mary Vaughn’s behavior, according to the Baby Driver actress, stems from a sense of being “left out.” “Humans are social animals, even though we love our quiet time alone,” she said, “and feeling left out of a group, even if it’s just three girls — more like the most beloved girls — I think can drive you to do crazy things.”
Of course, it appears that another mean girl is on her way to Serenity, as we saw a blonde slashing Dana Sue’s catering truck tires in the season 2 finale. We’ll have to wait and see if she can compete with Mary Vaughn!
