Sweet Magnolias season 4 release date speculation, cast, and more news

With season 3 just arrived, fans are already wanting to know when the Sweet Magnolias season 4 release date will drop, so we've found out all you need to know.

Sweet Magnolias season 4 release date: JoAnna Garcia Swisher as Maddie Townsend

When is the Sweet Magnolias season 4 release date? Although season 3 is still fresh in our minds, we’re already looking ahead to when we can return to Southern Carolina to revisit some of our favorite ladies.

Sweet Magnolias, the Netflix series based on the novel of the same name, follows a trio of friends, Maddie, Dana Sue, and Helen, who go through the bumpy motions of life with the support of one another. Taking a page out of some of the best rom-coms, Sweet Magnolias shines a light on how difficult it can be to juggle romance, careers, and family.

Fans of the show have been lucky to be on the receiving end of three seasons so far, but it’s not enough. When can we expect the Sweet Magnolias ladies to return, and what will happen when they do? Well, we’ve done some digging and have everything you need to know about the Sweet Magnolias season 4 release date. Read on!

Sweet Magnolias season 4 release date speculation

There’s no Sweet Magnolias season 4 release date just yet because Netflix hasn’t confirmed another season for the time being, but all signs point to mid or late 2024.

But don’t panic because the third season has only just aired, having dropped on the streaming service on Thursday, July 20, 2023. Since Netflix waited two months after the first season to announce the second and three months after season 2 aired to announce season 3, we may just need to be a little patient.

Since the seasons have been pretty spread out until now, with two years between seasons 1 and 2, and roughly a year between seasons 2 and 3, we’d be willing to bet on the summer of 2024 for the continuation. (This, of course, all depends on how the 2023 Writers Strike and actors strike progresses.)

Who’ll be in the Sweet Magnolias season 4 cast?

Since season 4 hasn’t been confirmed, the cast list is yet to be announced. That said, we think it’s safe to say that the main cast, including JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Brooke Elliott, and Heather Headley, will return as the usual trio.

Since the series has always focused intently on the tight-knit group of friends, it would make sense to see the main three return, along with their families.

Here’s the expected Sweet Magnolias season 4 cast list:

  • JoAnna Garcia Swisher as Maddie Townsend
  • Brooke Elliott as Dana Sue Sullivan
  • Heather Headley as Helen Decatur
  • Logan Allen as Kyle Townsend
  • Anneliese Judge as Annie Sullivan
  • Carson Rowland as Tyler “Ty” Townsend
  • Justin Bruening as Cal Maddox
  • Chris Klein as Bill Townsend
  • Jamie Lynn Spears as Noreen Fitzgibbons
  • Dion Johnstone as Erik Whitley
  • Brandon Quinn as Ronnie Sullivan
  • Ella Grace Helton as Katie Townsend

What will Sweet Magnolias season 4 be about?

Sweet Magnolias season 4 will likely continue where season 3 left us, leaving the three friends in a much easier stead than the finale of season 2 did.

There were a lot of relationship developments during season 3, including weddings and break-ups, so we imagine these would be a central focus of the continuation. On Helen’s end, she was rattled after Ryan left because he couldn’t commit to staying in Serenity, even though he had just proposed to her. She left to be with her mother for a while but ultimately returned to continue her “pour it out” sessions with the girls.

Also, there’s always the lingering question mark of her relationship with Erik, so whether they remain friends or spark up a romantic connection is something that we could expect to see.

Meanwhile, Maddie had been going through the ups and downs of her relationship with Cal. It wasn’t easy since the two established a ‘no touching’ rule for the first few weeks of their relationship. That said, they got through, and Maddie is now working on a book with her daughter Katie and mother Paula, so we may well see what happens with that once they return.

Dana Sue and Robbie had a bit of a bumpy road for a while with the arrival of his crazy sister Kathy, but the end of the season saw them having their vow renewal with the whole town in tow, marking both a happy ending and a new beginning for the couple.
