The couple are reported to have later separated in 2011, and their divorce was finalised in 2013.

Sweet Magnolias season 2 Netflix release date: Will there be another series?

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

Sweet Magnolias is a popular new romance drama series on Netflix, which is based on a series of novels by Sherryl Woods. The emotional series follows a group of friends who rely on each other to get through dark times in their lives. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about whether there will be a season 2 of Sweet Magnolias.

WARNING: This story contains spoilers for Sweet Magnolias 

When is Sweet Magnolias season 2 out?

The first season of Sweet Magnolias landed on Netflix on May 19, 2020, and fans of the novels were excited to see the friends on the small screen.

As the series has only been out for a short time, it is too early to say whether a second season will be given the green light.

Netflix will most likely wait a few more weeks to see how many people tuned in for the first series, before making a decision.

If a season two is given the go-ahead, fans can expect to see it in the summer of 2021, however, due to coronavirus restrictions it may be a little later in the year.

With plenty of novels to use for source material, there is definitely scope for more episodes.

Who will be in the cast of Sweet Magnolias season 2?

One of the main characters, Maddie Townsend, is played by JoAnna Garcia Swisher and she is likely to return for another season.

Her friend Dana Sue Sullivan, who owns a restaurant, is played by Brook Elliott and the third friend, Helen Decatur, is played by Heather Headley.

Other main characters include the sister of pop sensation Britney Spears – Jamie Lynn Spears – as Noreen Fitzgibbons, the fiancee of Maddie’s ex-husband Bill (Chris Klein).

The main cast members have all spoken out in favour of a second season, with Spears telling The Sun she had her “fingers crossed”.

Garcia Swisher posted on her Instagram account to say the series had been the number one top trending show on Netflix in the US.

She said: “Woke up this morning to this news! I’m blown away. This week has been so exciting for the whole @sweetmagnoliasnetflix family.

“To be able to open the doors to Serenity and share our little slice of life with all of you has been so wonderful. And as overwhelmingly ecstatic we are to be in this spot, it is all because of you.”

Is there a trailer for Sweet Magnolias season 2?

Sadly as an official release date has not yet been given for season two, there is no trailer at this moment in time.

Netflix usually drops trailers the month before a new season is due to air, so fans may have to wait until next year.

With the coronavirus outbreak grinding production on many Netflix series to a halt, it is difficult to say when a first glimpse of season two will be out.

Express.co.uk will update this series when a trailer becomes available, and Netflix may also issue a short teaser in the near future.

Fans who have already fallen in love with the inspirational series have called for a second season.

What will happen in Sweet Magnolias season 2?

The TV show is based on a series of novels of the same name by Sherryl Woods, and each novel has a different title.

Woods said on Twitter that the first season was made up of the first three books, which means there are eight more books to work with.

If fans want to know more about what to expect from the new seasons, their best bet is to start reading the novels.

The series ended on a huge cliffhanger with Maddie’s son Kyle (Logan Allen) having been in a car crash, and there is someone else in the back seat.

Fans were left wondering who was in the car with Kyle, who was dragged out from the wreckage, as the season ends before their identity is revealed.

Another fan said: “Sweet Magnolias is playing my life with this cliffhanger. Season 2 needs to come out tomorrow. The suspense is killing me. #SweetMagnolias.”

Hundreds of viewers shared and retweeted the official Sweet Magnolias Twitter post asking who had already watched all 10 episodes.

Judging by the popularity of the series, there is definitely a chance the friends will be back for more adventures in Serenity.

Selling Sunset: Who sold the $40 million house on Selling Sunset?

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

Selling Sunset is an addictive reality TV series on Netflix which looks into the everyday lives of agents at The Oppenheim Group. The agents are known for selling some of the most lavish and expensive homes in LA, and there is one house in particular fans are interested in. Express.co.uk has seen a teaser for who sold the more than $40million (£32.5m) house, which has been spoken about since season 1.

Who sold the $40 million house on Selling Sunset?

In the first episode fans got a glimpse inside the jaw-dropping house, worth more than $40m, which includes 20,000 square feet of space.

The home has five bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and a garage which can fit not one, but 15 cars. There are also four hot tubs, an infinity pool, and a huge rooftop deck.

Fans were left in awe of the indoor theatre, spa, wine cellar and plenty of other perks within the luxury pad.

The deal was a hot topic for the agents as whoever sold the property would get a commission worth $1.2m (£979,000).

Season two has just finished airing and in the final episode the Oppenheim brothers hint the house did actually sell.

The words “still to come” appear on the screen and one of the brothers says in front of the rest of the team: “I just closed on the $44million dollar house.”

Screams erupt from the gang and Chrishell Stause rings a huge gold bell which indicates a major sale has been completed.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the house sold in December 2019 and it closed at a final deal of $35.5m (£29m) – the most expensive sale since 2012.

There is no indication of what agent managed to sell the property, so hopefully this will be unveiled in season three.

A third season has already been given the green light, and fans have already expressed their excitement.

The article in the Los Angeles Times shows stunning photos of the house, which is in Hollywood Hills, on Hillside Avenue.

The story says: “The seller, real estate developer Jeff Thomas, first brought it to market for $43.9 million in August.

“He got plenty of publicity for the home, as it was featured heavily on listing agent Jason Oppenheim’s Netflix show Selling Sunset.”

Jason Oppenheim of The Oppenheim Group held the listing with James Harris and David Parnes of the Agency.

The article then goes on to list the main features of the three-story property, and an atrium garden.

According to CNBC Thomas spent an extra $2m (£1.6m) touching up the home ahead of the final sale – and the process included repaving the street.

Fans have taken to Twitter to express their love for the stunning property, with one fan saying: “The $40million house on Selling Sunset is incredible. Imagine living in that.”

Another fan said: “So after watching Selling Sunset I feel like I could confidently sell a $40 million house and close the deal.”

Producers of the series had hoped the house would be sold for the season one finale, but the agents did not have much luck.

Hopefully, a third season will clear up who made the gigantic sale, and that person will become a millionaire.

  • Episode 2. New Friends
  • Episode 3. Octopus Situation
  • Episode 4. International Break

  • Episode 6. Upheaval

The First Team has been written by The Inbetweeners creative duo Damon Beesley and Iain Morris.

This is the first project which sees the pair reuniting after The Inbetweeners.

Speaking about creating the series, Beesley said they had both wanted to do a comedy set around professional football.

The idea came about many years ago after they’d finished filming the second series of The Inbetweeners.

However, it was Morris’ chance encounter with a Queens Park Rangers player on Transatlantic flight which led to the crystallisation of the idea.

Morris said: “I was a huge football fan, but talking to him about his day to day existence was fascinating and revealed all sorts of things I never knew, and had never even considered.

“One of the main things was that often training can only last about an hour, so for most days they have an extraordinary amount of time on their hands during the day.”

He continued: “I came back and told Damon about it and we discussed making something about footballers, and what it would be like to work in what was an increasingly rare almost all-male environment.

“Then we made the third series of The Inbetweeners, and two films, and Damon made White Gold and we kind of forgot about it.”

Despite coming up with the concept a decade ago, it took them until now to get the idea to the small screen.

The pair cited other projects getting in the way of The First Team before they came back together.

White Lines season 2 theories: Major death ‘sealed’ in Calafat family revenge plot

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

From the creator of Money Heist, Alex Pina’s latest crime drama White Lines became one on Netflix’s most-streamed titles in May as fans witnessed the mystery of who killed DJ Axel Collins (played by Tom Rhys Harries) unfold. It wasn’t until the action-packed finale that his killer was finally unveiled but the big reveal hasn’t stopped theories emerging about the second season of the Ibiza-based drama.

WARNING: This article contains major spoilers from White Lines.

Over the course of 10 episodes, Axel’s sister Zoe (Laura Haddock) went to extreme lengths to try and find out once and for all what happened to her brother.

During her investigation, she reacquainted herself with Axel’s hometown pals Marcus (Daniel Mays) and Anna (Angela Griffin) as well as meeting nightclub bouncer Boxer (Nuno Lopes) and her brother’s ex Kika Califat (Marta Milans).

Little did Zoe know the web of lies and hectic lives Axel’s social circle had made for themselves over the years and quickly discovered secret after secret about them all.

The most shocking revelation of all came in the finale, however, as Zoe discovered the true part Anna and Marcus played in her brother’s demise.

READ MORE

  • White Lines season 2 theories: Marcus’ death ‘sealed’ in huge clue

Told through a flashback, Anna had drowned Axel in a swimming pool when he revealed he’d burnt of the gang’s money.

Anna enlisted Marcus’ help to take Axel’s body away only for the DJ to miraculous regain consciousness and burst out of the car.

Marcus tried to run Axel over with his car but it was to no avail, leading to Anna plunging a screwdriver into his back to finish the job.

While the discovery shook Zoe to her core, there was little that could be done as Spanish law dictates an arrest can’t be made 20 years after the crime.

As such, Anna and Marcus escaped the first season of White Lines as free citizens, the former marrying George (Paulo Pires) and the latter becoming a part of the Calafat’s business.

Marcus and the Calafat’s head honcho Andreu (Pedro Casablanc) had grown rather pally over the course of the series and with Boxer resigning from his security duties for the family, a vacancy close to them arose.

But could Marcus’ newfound involvement with the Calafat’s family business lead to a major death in season two? Here’s the theory.

Andreu had been at war with a rival family, the Martinez’, throughout the series with his son Oriol (Juan Diego Botto) deafening Cristobal Martinez (Agus Ruiz) and Andreu being crippled in a planned car crash as in retaliation.

The tensions between the two families were still sky-high in the final moments of the series as Marcus revealed there was a chance to take the opposing family out of the picture when it came to Ibiza’s drug scene.

Marcus asked him: “Do you want to deal with Pepe Martinez, once and for all?”

The DJ and drug dealer then explained that he and Andreu could work together to source drugs from elsewhere and overpower the Martinez family and the lingering Romanians.

Andreu tells Marcus he is “not a drug-dealer” in a moment of hesitation but Marcus assures him he is and could take care of this.

Due to his part in Axel’s death, Marcus is also not scared of killing in order to get his way.

If he and Andreu team up in season two and go against the Martinez family, Marcus could take drastic measures to ensure the Calfat business comes out on top.

Could he end up killing Pepe Martinez in order for Andreu to rule over Ibiza’s drug scene?

Or could he even take aim at his son Cristobal who’ll undoubtedly seek revenge on the Calafats for his eardrum-bursting ordeal?

White Lines is available to stream on Netflix now.

ABBA new music: Björn Ulvaeus on ‘EXTRAORDINARY’ reunion and release – ‘It was so strange’

Back in 2018, Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson announced that they had recorded new ABBA music with Agnetha Fältskog and Anni-Frid Lyngstad. The two new ABBA singles are called I Still Have Faith in You and Don’t Shut Me Down. And now Björn has confirmed fans should be able to hear the tracks later this year.

Speaking with CNBC, the 75-year-old said: “I think sometime this year. Yes, I think so.”

On recording with ABBA over three decades later, Björn said: “Oh, that was so great.

“It took half a minute and somehow we were back in time like we had been there yesterday as well.

“It was so strange. That feeling between us was extraordinary.”

“They’re coming this year. I’m guessing after the summer.

“But I can only guess because I’m not really sure. But I would think so.”

Asked if he could promise 2020, the ABBA star said: “One shouldn’t promise anything but if I were to decide myself, it would be September.

“I can’t make that decision alone.

“But that’s what we’re aiming for.”

Meanwhile, ABBA’s life-like avatar tour has been delayed by six months due to the pandemic.

Last year, a source told Express.co.uk that it’s not just two singles but a whole new ABBA album.

The insider said: “Benny has written eight new and totally original songs, so far. Five of which are completely recorded on which the girls have just finished their vocals. 

“The two Bs have been playing it coy with their official announcements, so far.

“But this and more is what is happening behind the scenes.”

They added: “Benny is a bit paranoid not wanting to besmirch their legacy. But, he has nothing to fear, they are all fabulous songs.

“Furthermore, a state of the art video, using new unseen technology, has been shot costing £15 million for an upcoming single release date, still to be decided.

“It’s going to be an album at some point. Benny is over-cautious as he doesn’t want to stain the band’s legacy with anything inferior so he is taking his time writing new songs.

“But they are coming together rather quickly, though, by the sounds of it. They all sound as though they have never been away with the state-of-the-art recording technology involved. Remember, all of Abba’s original recordings were analogue and these current recordings are digital!”

Hana Kimura dead: How did Hana Kimura die? Cause of death

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

Netflix fans will know Hana Kimura from the popular series, Terrace House, and the star was found dead aged 22. 

The cause of death has not yet been officially announced, but fans were concerned about her following a recent social media post. 

In one of her recent tweets, the professional wrestler said: “I love it. I’m weak, I’m sorry.”

Her death was first announced by her wrestling organisation, Stardom Wrestling, earlier on Saturday.

They said: “We are very sorry to report that our Hana Kimura has passed away. Please be respectful and allow some time for things to process, and keep your thoughts and prayers with her family and friends. We appreciate your support during this difficult time.” 

She was starring in the fifth season of Terrace House, which follows the relationships between men and women after they move in together.

Wrestling Travel paid tribute to the young star on Twitter, saying: “Hana Kimura was one of the first women to wrestle on a Wrestle Kingdom show, working in front of a packed Tokyo Dome this January.

“A whole, history-making career was ahead of her. 22-years-old. Heartbreaking doesn’t even begin to cover it #RIPHanaKimura.”

Vikings season 6B theories: Lagertha to return after Hvitserk hallucination

We will use your email address only for sending you newsletters. Please see our Privacy Notice for details of your data protection rights.

Vikings viewers are eagerly awaiting the show’s final ten episodes to arrive on History and Amazon Prime Video. However, they are still reeling from the first half of season six, as they witnessed some of the last remaining members of the Lothbrok household being killed off.

Never miss a royal update again by signing up to the Daily Express Royal Family newsletter

While it looks like Bjorn Ironside (played by Alexander Ludwig) was killed in the final episode of the show’s first half, the bigger shock involved Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick).

During the final season, Lagertha was struck down in error by Hvitserk (Marco Ilso).

The youngster was unfortunately suffering the effects of some hallucinogenics, leaving him to see Lagertha as a giant snake beast.

This vision prompted Hvitserk to stab the beast – really Lagertha – killing the queen of Kattegat.

  • Vikings theory: Did Aslaug plan her own death? Fans reveal clue

However, could Lagertha’s death have been a fake out?

Viewers are used to seeing members of the Vikings show come and go without explanation, and Lagertha could be the same.

While viewers certainly saw her being killed off by Hvitserk, it was during an odd hallucination.

Hvitserk later went on to be with Ivar the Boneless (Alexander Hogh Andersen) to take down Kattegat once and for all.

So then, could Lagertha have merely been severely injured, and instead faked her death so the opposition wouldn’t be aware of her existence?

It was beginning to become clear that Lagertha was eager to stop fighting, so she may have well faked her death to continue her life elsewhere.

Although this is a nice thought, viewers did also see her funeral take place – so could she have found some sort of body-double to take her place?

Meanwhile, it has been hinted series regular King Alfred (Ferdia Walsh Peelo) would be making a return in the upcoming second half of the season.

Alfred actor Ferdia recently posted an image of himself as the king with a brand new look.

He captioned the image: “Vikings 6B hitting your screens later this year. Be prepared for the wrath of Alfred 2.0! Photo brought to you by the legend @alexhoeghandersen face work by the divine @puffjockey.”

Fans instantly began speaking out about the photo, and suggested it spelled an upcoming team-up with Ivar.

One wrote: “Hail king Alfred! go kill ivar the boneless…”
