We all need a happiness booster more than ever right now and Netflix has answered our prayers with the new series Sweet Magnolias.

Fans of Gilmore Girls are bound to love this charming, feel-good series. Sweet Magnolias follows three South Carolina women, best friends since childhood, as they juggle relationships, family and careers in the charming small town of Serenity.

Sweet Magnolias stars Joanna Garcia Swisher as Maddie, Heather Headley as Helen and Brooke Elliot as Dana Sue.

Jamie Lynn Spears stars as Noreen, American Pie’s Chris Klein stars as Bill Townsend and Grey’s Anatomy actor Justin Bruening as Cal Maddox.

The Netflix show is based on the books by American writer Sherryl Woods.

I binge-watched all ten episodes of the series in one day and it was everything I needed during these dull and overwhelming days. It is such an easy show to watch and you get completely wrapped up in the small town charm, the everyday drama and the complex relationships. It helps you switch off from the world we're living in right now and I think we could all benefit from doing that at the moment.

Sweet Magnolias is the ultimate source of comfort we need during the lockdown. All ten episodes are available on Netflix now.

Netflix has yet to renew the show for a second season, but given the overwhelmingly positive response, there’s no doubt that Sweet Magnolias will be back for a second instalment.

Jamie-Lynn spears is rumoured to be in talks to reprise her role in the Nickelodeon hit show Zoey 101, which was cancelled back in 2008.

The 28-year-old actress will be making her return to acting in Netflix's Sweet Magnolias, but whispers are circulating that she's hoping to make her way back to the hit teen show.

TMZ allege that Spears, who is the younger sister of pop icon Britney, has been talking to TV executives about a potential comeback. The publication say that it's not a "done deal" yet, however.

It's also apparent that if Jamie-Lynn was going to take on the role of Zoey again, there would be some "major changes". 

The iconic character reportedly would be "Zoey with an edge" (lol) and we're fascinated to hear more. The show was cancelled after the Nickelodeon star announced that she was pregnant with her first baby.

Spears welcomed her now 11-year-old daughter Maddie into the world with then-partner Casey Aldridge, but Jamie-Lynn still insists that her pregnancy wasn't the reason for the show's cancellation.

The star also shares one-year-old Ivey Joan with her husband Jamie Watson. The mum-of-two will be making waves on Netflix as Noreen Fitzgibbons on Sweet Magnolias.

Spears hasn't acted since her role on ABC sitcom Miss Guided in 2008. "Mama’s going back to work y’all," Jamie wrote on Twitter.

"Can’t wait for y’all to meet Noreen. I fell in love with this story, and 'm so excited I get to be a part of telling it #SweetMagnolias." The new series is based on the book series by Sherryl Woods.

Netflix announced that; "Spears will play Noreen Fitzgibbons, a young woman who is determined to build a new life for herself after a series of bad choices."

Will she become Zoey as a mum-of-two on the reboot, or will her 11-year-old daughter play Zoey and Spears will play her mum? We have so many questions.

One thing's for sure; She'd better still wear that key around her neck as jewellery. It was the accessory of the noughties thanks to her…
