WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Sweet Magnolias. 

Sweet Magnolias fans may watch the Netflix series for all of the small town drama that occurs, however, there is also the beautiful backdrop to entice subscribers.

The show, based on the book series of the same name by author Sherryl Woods, was revived for a third season which made its debut on Thursday, July 20.

With the events of this latest lot of episodes fresh in viewers’ minds, many are wondering about where the filming actually took place.

Where do they film Sweet Magnolias?

Sweet Magnolias is set in the fictional town of Serenity which is meant to be in South Carolina.

But in real life, the show is actually shot in Covington, Georgia, a town around 35 miles from Atlanta with a population of about 14,000.

Covington was used for most of scenes in Sweet Magnolias with Danna Sue Sullivan’s (played by Brooke Elliott) Sullivan’s Restaurant, a real-life eatery in the town called Mystic Grill.

Funnily enough, the restaurant was also featured in the supernatural teen drama The Vampire Diaries.

According to This is My South, the exterior shots of the Corner Spa were of a law office in Covington whereas the interior scenes were filmed on a soundstage.

Then there is the clock tower building that’s in the opening credits and features in the background of various scenes – this is the Newton County Courthouse in Covington.

The shots at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church were filmed at the Oakhurst Presbyterian Church in Decatur, Georgia, and Serenity High School is really Henry County Middle School in McDonough, Georgia.

Maddie Townsend (JoAnne Garcia Swisher) and Dana Sue’s homes are located in Covington as well, whereas Helen Decatur’s (Heather Headley) home is in Atlanta, Georgia.

In addition, the Forager Festival in season three episode three, according to Atlas of Wonders, was shot in Madison Town Park, Madison, Georgia.

So far, there has been no word on whether or not Sweet Magnolias will be back for a fourth season.

Given its international popularity though, it does seem more than likely it will be renewed, especially since there is plenty of material to work from with Woods’ 11-part book series.

But subscribers could be waiting a while for the official news due to the ongoing writers and actors’ strikes in America.

Sweet Magnolias is available on Netflix.
