The STARZ original series “Sweetbitter” is returning with all-new episodes this summer. The network announced this week that “Sweetbitter: Season 2” is scheduled to premiere on July 14th in the U.S. and Canada, and will also be available on the STARZPLAY platform in the U.K., Germany and Spain. The series stars Ella Purnell, Caitlin FitzGerald, Tom Sturridge, Paul Sparks, Evan Jonigkeit, Eden Epstein, Jasmine Mathews, and Daniyar.
Stuart Zicherman returns in the second season as showrunner and executive producer of the show, along with Stephanie Danler, author of the bestselling novel of the same name, as creator and executive producer. Plan B also executive produces the series.
The network teased the new season asking, “What comes after being new?” The network continued, “Tess has the job, and she’s ready to invest in it. She’s all in, but soon realizes she won’t survive at the restaurant if she doesn’t play the game. Tess finds her appetite awakened. She’s starving for knowledge but investing in this life means more than knowing the difference between wine from Bordeaux and Burgundy. Tess discovers that knowledge alone is not enough: she needs to be able to use it, to move from her head to her body. She needs experience.”
In the season two announcement Starz added, “Tess’s appetite carries her through a sexual awakening, a discovery of her voice, and, ultimately, a recognition of her own power. However, not everyone shares this hunger. Simone, Jake and Howard are all trapped, by both the restaurant and each other, leaving Tess to question what she wants from the restaurant, and what it wants from her.”
