The Sweet Magnolias are a series of books written by Sheryl Woods. The collection includes 11 novels, which were published between 2007-2014.
Every Sweet Magnolias novel focuses on one character. Maddie Townsend and Dana Sue Sullivan are the main characters in the first three Sweet Magnolias books. Helen Decatur is also featured. We could watch each season adapt one or more books, as the Original characters.
We’re not sure if the first season will cover the events of the first book, or if the story will take inspiration from each of the first three books in the series.
The principal photography was done in Covington, Georgia, and began on the 8th of July.
The first season of the series will feature ten episodes, as confirmed by us.
After their release, all ten episodes of the series will be streamable on Netflix.
Most definitely, it’s a requirement of new Originals to be available to stream in Ultra High Definition. Sweet Magnolia 4K viewing requires a premium subscription and a 4K-capable device.
