Netflix Orders More 'Chef's Table'
Netflix is stacking up on more Chef's Table.
The streaming company has renewed the docuseries for three more seasons, it was announced Tuesday.
Season two, which will consist of six new installments, will premiere May 27, followed by four special episodes debuting later this year specifically focused on the world's most renowned French chefs. Season four, which will run for six episodes, is set to premiere sometime in 2017.
From creator David Gelb (Jiro Dreams of Sushi), Chef's Table marked Netflix's first original docuseries when it was ordered back in September 2014. Each episode of the series focuses on a different chef. The list of upcoming featured chefs include the U.S.'s Dominique Crenn of Atelier Crenn in season two, and Nancy Silverton of Mozza in season four.
Chef's Table is created, executive produced and directed by Gelb. Clay Jeter, Andrew Fried and Brian McGinn return as directors, with Abigail Fuller on board to direct as well. Fried and McGinn will exec produce with co-exec producer Dane Lillegard for Boardwalk Pictures, which produces the series.
"We are thrilled to continue our partnership with David Gelb and his team. We couldn’t think of a better way to follow such a visually stunning and engrossing first season than to profile 16 more exceptional chefs and to share their deeply personal stories with our members around the world. David’s unique vision takes viewers around the world experiencing the secret richness of street food to the most celebrated kitchens in the world,” Netflix vp original documentary programming Lisa Nishimura said in a statement.
Added Gelb: “With a wide range of disciplines and culinary talent, there was no way we could pack all of the incredible chef stories into one season. I’m particularly excited that we will have episodes dedicated to female chefs Ana Ros, Dominique Crenn, Jeong Kwan, Nancy Silverton, and Adeline Grattard — who will be one of four chefs we will highlight in our French season. I am beyond honored to be able to share a more personal look into each of these chefs’ lives with gastronomy experts and global households alike!”
Chef's Table joins other Netflix original docuseries, including Making a Murderer, Chelsea Does and Cooked.
