While we don't yet know exactly what kind of plot will follow in new episodes of Sweet Magnolias, there have been a number of hints about what fans can expect from season two. Showrunner Sheryl J Anderson told Metro Online last year: "I don't think we'd ever run out of stories between the lovely paths that Sherryl Woods laid out in the books."

Sheryl also confirmed that a new series would answer plenty of fans' questions after the season finale saw a dramatic twist with Maddie's son, Kyle, and a mystery passenger involved in a car crash.

She told Entertainment Weekly: "I appreciate everyone's eagerness to learn who's in the car. All I can share is that the writers put a lot of thought into who's in the car, and we looked forward to the opportunity to let y'all know who it is."
