‘Sweet Magnolias’ Season 3 arrives on July 20

Quick. Someone grab the pimento cheese and margaritas. Since Netflix announced a third season of its runaway series Sweet Magnolias last spring, we’ve been not-so-patiently waiting for a chance to “pour it out” with our favorite trio from Serenity, South Carolina. And now, finally, the streamer has released the Season 3 trailer. Sweet Magnolias Season 3 will drop on July 20—and all 10 episodes in the third season will be available that day for our binge-watching enjoyment.

We see Cal trying to figure out a way to move forward after the fight at Sullivan’s, Helen facing the difficult choice of trusting Ryan or moving on with Erik, Dana Sue deciding how to use the gift from Miss Francis, and Maddie juggling all the things, including her three kids, Cal’s journey and co-parenting with her ex-husband, Bill.  We also finally find out who exactly is “back,” and who slashed the tires on the Sullivan’s van.

Late last year, Netflix took to Instagram to share the news that filming had wrapped and let’s just say fans were excited.

Almost as excited as they were when Netflix announced the series would be back.

The Netflix romance-drama is led by JoAnna Garcia Swisher, and its second season dropped at the beginning of February. Fans were finally able to exhale after the first episode of the second season revealed that the car wreck cliffhanger that ended season one was—for all intents and purposes—benign. No one was killed, and no characters left the show, but it laid the groundwork for plot twists that continue to ripple.

Maddie, Helen, and Dana Sue are expected to continue to walk life’s paths with one another in season 3, after facing infertility, break-ups, jealous partners, anger management issues, and more. The tumultuous ending left fans with some expectations. Namely, who the heck is the mystery woman who showed up at the end of season 2? And who does she think she is, calling Dana Sue a “homewrecker?” Y’all, we’re about to find out.

Lots of butterfly, hand-clapping, and heart emojis could be found among replies that ranged from “OMG YEEEEEEES” to “IT WAS TAKING YALL LONG ENOUGH.” Now one thing’s for sure: there’s about to be a run on the premixed margaritas at the grocery store.
