Sweet Magnolias Cast Weighs In on Biggest Season 2 Premiere Twists: Helen's News, the Accident and More

Sweet Magnolias Season 2

Nearly two years after being left to digest a series of devastating cliffhangers, Sweet Magnolias fans can finally rest easy — but not too easy.

The Netflix drama returned for its second season on Friday, picking up right where it left off back in May 2020, with Maddie & Co. breathlessly waiting for an update on that car accident. But before the hour was over, the aftermath of the crash became just one of many game-changing developments that will shape everyone’s journey this season.

Fortunately, the show’s leading ladies — JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Heather Headley and Brooke Elliott — were more than happy to break down those juicy twists in an interview with TVLine.

Grade the premiere below, then read on for the stars’ thoughts on what went down… and what comes next.
