Season 2 ended on a huge cliffhanger where the prom night conflict ended in a huge car crash. On prom night, Maddie and Bill’s (Chris Klein) son Tyler “Ty,” gets into a heated conflict. But when his younger brother Kyle tries to defend him, Ty takes everything negatively. So a disturbed Kyle takes his brother’s brand new car and leaves the party. However, due to overspeeding, Kyle indulged in a severe car crash. Although Kyle got his treatment in time, yet it remains unclear who was in the passenger seat. 

Was Nellie In The Car?

Well, we know the avid viewers are desperate to know whether or not Kyle survived and who was with him in the car. Considering Kyle’s situation, it seems he survived the fatal accident as, within seconds, the rescue team reached for help. However, how long it will take for him to recover remains a mystery. Besides him, it seems the person sitting in the passenger seat wasn’t that lucky, though. A fan theorized that Nellie (Simone Lockhart) was in the car as the two teens were in the blossoming relation.

The pair also decided to hang out together after the prom night. Thus, it seems Nellie was in the car. However, the finale drops the hint that the passenger didn’t survive. So, it might bring a remorse period in Kyle’s life when he would learn about this news. Further, things will become daunting in Maddie’s life as well. Now how she could manage everything would be thrilling to see in Sweet Magnolias Season 2. 

Annie Could Be In The Car

There’s another speculation that Annie (Anneliese Judge) could be in the car. However, if this was the case, be ready for plenty of drama in the second run. Annie, the daughter of Dana Sue, had a crush on Tyler. Now when Dana discovers that Maddie’s son was behind her daughter’s death, then it could affect their friendship. Perhaps it could permanently destroy it. On the flip side, Kyle has feelings for Annie. Thus, when he learns about her demise, it could create a complicated condition in Kyle’s life. 

Maddie Life Will Worsen 

Well, there’re plenty of factors that would disturb Maddie’s peace of mind in the sophomore run. While she remorse over her son’s accident, things will turn upside-down when her ex-husband enters her life. If we recall, her ex-husband (Bill Townsend) had suggested living with him for the sake of their children. However, Maddie has yet to select which path she wants to go in Sweet Magnolias Season 2. 

Helen And Dana’s Life Will Take A 360 Degree Turn

While the last season ended in a fatal car accident, we can’t avoid the fact that Helen and Dana have recently stepped into a brutal chapter. Dana recently learned that she has an estranged son working in her kitchen. Now whether she’ll accept him as her son remains up in the air.

Further, what was his motive to enter Dana’s life remains uncertain? Perhaps he aimed for revenge, or he’s there just to learn why she left him all alone. On the o ther hand, Helen just separated from her on-and-off boyfriend. But how things will move in her life when she’s desperate for a child is a big question. So now, let’s see what will happen next in Sweet Magnolias Season 2? 

Sweet Magnolias Season 2: When Will It Return?

Currently, Netflix hasn’t dropped the official date announcement clip of the second run. Thus it remains unclear when season 2 will hit the streaming giant. However, production has already wrapped up. Therefore it wouldn’t take much time to conclude post-production work. Hence considering it would take 4-5 months, we expect Sweet Magnolias Season 2 to air sometime in mid-2022.
