Starz Greenlights Drama ‘Sweetbitter’ for Season 2

Six Episodes Aired in Season One

Starz has renewed half-hour drama “Sweetbitter” for a second season, with an unconfirmed number of new episodes. Debuting on May 6, 2018, “Sweetbitter” is based on the book of the same name by Stephanie Danler. The series follows a 22-year-old woman (Ella Purnell) who, shortly after arriving in New York, lands a job at a celebrated downtown restaurant.

“Season one gave audiences a taste of the characters and backstory of an upscale New York restaurant, leaving them wanting more – which we will deliver with a second helping of ‘Sweetbitter,’” said Starz president and CEO Chris Albrecht. “The immersion of the audience into the world in and around the restaurant will deepen as the series looks further into the complexities of Tess’ awakening and the lives of her new friends and colleagues in the second season.”

Six episodes of “Sweetbitter” aired in season one.
