Sweet Magnolias

The Netflix series Sweet Magnolias may follow the stories of three South Carolina women but it’s not even filmed in the Carolinas! It’s actually shot on location in Covington, Georgia.

You should recognize the setting because the town has been a stand in for many fictional towns, most notably Mystic Falls from The Vampire Diaries and Legacies.

Here are all the TV shows and movies that have filmed in Covington:

  • American Reunion
  • Cannonball Run
  • Career Opportunities
  • Doctor Sleep
  • Dukes of Hazzard
  • Flight
  • Footloose
  • Freaky
  • In the Heat of the Night
  • Legacies
  • My Cousin Vinny
  • Remember the Titans
  • Selma
  • Sweet Home Alabama
  • Sweet Magnolias
  • The Underground Railroad
  • Vacation
  • The Vampire Diaries

The Showtime series The First Lady was just filmed in Covington in the Fall of 2021. The anthology series details the lives of former first ladies Michelle Obama, Betty Ford and Eleanor Roosevelt during their time at the White House. Gillian Anderson, Michelle Pfeiffer and Viola Davis star. It is set to premiere sometime in the first quarter of 2022.

It sounds like we need to plan a trip to Covington some time this year!

Learn more about Covington here and stream season two of Sweet Magnolias on Netflix starting Friday, February 4.
