JoAnna Garcia Swisher Teases an “Uncomfortable” Journey in “Sweet Magnolias” Season 3
JoAnna Garcia Swisher can’t wait for fans to see what “Sweet Magnolias” season three has in store. “I’m ready for it to come out. I know everyone else feels that same way,” she tells POPSUGAR, “and I actually know what happens, so I’m ready for everyone to enjoy it. It’s just a great season.”
Swisher plays Maddie Townsend on the show, which follows three best friends – Maddie, Helen Decatur (Heather Headley), and Dana Sue Sullivan (Brooke Elliott) – as they navigate relationships, teenage kids, and all of life’s ups and downs. Swisher says season three, which premieres on July 20, will focus even more closely on the characters’ friendships. “I think that the dust is settling in Serenity, but there’s still all of these incredible relationships and all this love,” she says, adding that the season will look “a little bit deeper into our friendships and the Magnolias’ friendships.”
For Maddie, season three will be about adjusting to a brand-new reality. “I think for my character, she’s starting to see the light after the divorce, and that journey is a little bit uncomfortable, but I think by the end of the season, you start to see that the future is bright for Maddie,” Swisher shares.

Season three will find the characters dealing with the fallout of the fight from the season two finale while trying to do the best they can for themselves and their community. “Following the brawl at Sullivan’s, Maddie wrestles with the best way to help Cal and works to clear her own emotional path,” the official synopsis says. “Helen faces difficult decisions about the men in her life. And Dana Sue searches for a way to use Miss Frances’ check to help the community, without upending her family. The identity of the tire slasher sends shockwaves through Serenity, the recall causes unexpected consequences, and there are romantic surprises in every generation.”
“Throughout the season, the ladies tackle these problems – and all the complications they cause – with their trademark warmth, humor, and devotion to each other and those they love,” it adds. “And margaritas.”
