Is there going to be a season 4 of Sweet Magnolias?

Presently, Netflix hasn’t given word about renewing Sweet Magnolias season 4. But should the series get greenlit, it may be a while before a new round of episodes gets released.

The Writer’s Guild of America (WGA) and SAG-AFTRA are both on strike as of July 2023, which means a large sector of actors and writers in Hollywood are not working on new projects, potentially leading to a delay if Sweet Magnolias comes back for season 4.

Are there any spoilers for Sweet Magnolias season 4?

While Netflix hasn’t dropped any details about renewing season 4, JoAnna Garcia Swisher spoke with Good Housekeeping ahead of the SAG-AFTRA strike to share her thoughts about potential new episodes. As she explained to the outlet, she felt there was a lot more to explore with the Sweet Magnolias after their rift in season 3.

“I think [the rift] adds a lot of depth to their friendship,” she said. “The show literally celebrates this friendship between these three women. That is what this show is at the heart of it, and all that happens in between it … They’ve gone to hell and back with each other, and that type of relationship is very real and very relatable. I think that there’s still so much storytelling in that way.”

And I love the growth that they go through.”

She added: “I love to see those little pieces of nuance and intricacies that come out about her personality that round her out. You get to know who Dana Sue is, where she came from, how she became the way she is, and all the pieces of how she is.”
