Sweet Magnolias season 3 streaming details

Sweet Magnolias season 3 is streaming now on Netflix.

Sweet Magnolias, based on books by Sherryl Woods, follows three South Carolina women who have been best friends since childhood: recently divorced Maddie (JoAnna Garcia Swisher), attorney Helen (Heather Headley) and chef Dana Sue (Brooke Elliott). Every week, they get together to share drinks and discuss the latest developments in their love lives, families and careers. 

In season 3, Maddie wrestles with the best way to help Cal (Justin Bruening) after the brawl at Sullivans, while Helen faces difficult decisions about the men in her life. Dana Sue searches for a way to use Miss Frances' check to help the community, without upending her family. Throughout all their ups and downs, the ladies lean on each other for support. And margaritas.
