The Spanish show Cook of Castamar has quite successfully amassed an enthusiastic fandom. The series was not only a hit on Netflix Espanol but it was also trending worldwide.
Shortly after the first season’s release fans have been questioning its renewal. So will there be a sequel to The Cook of Castamar?
For more questions like this one continue reading the article. Because after doing deep research from credible resources we have gathered all the information in one place.
Will there be a second season of The Cook of Castamar?
Up till now, Netflix has not disclosed any official information about the show’s renewal. This might sound disappointing but in reality, it is not. Why?
This is because Netflix usually takes 3 to 4 weeks to announce the renewal of shows. They take this decision after analyzing the first month’s rating and viewership. But as we all know the streaming site does not shy away from canceling shows, so if Cook of Castamar fans want the show to get a sequel then they have to increase its rating somehow.
The series is adapted from Fernando J. Múñez’s novel of the same name, despite this, the episodes did not follow all the events exactly. The book readers noticed that there were slight changes in the show. But this is good news because now writers are not confined to the novel’s plot.
They can add any plot twists or introduce new characters to create a second season of the show. Moreover, series creator Tatiana Rodríguez passed some positive comments about the show’s renewal in an interview.
Is there any release date for The Cook of Castamar’s second installment?
No, the show was released recently in July so there are no official release dates for its second season yet.
But if writers have a good script in mind for the second season, then Netflix won’t take more than 4 weeks to announce the renewal news. But again it will not give a specific release date for the show.
However, we can always predict the release date after looking at previous seasons’ production time. The first season took 4 months to be filmed and the post-production phase and editing took 5 months. So if the trend is followed, then the second season will come out in mid or late 2022.
And Netflix usually announces official release dates 3 to 4 months before the release, so one thing is for sure that we are not getting a release date any time before 2022. Rest assured, we will keep you updated on the matter!
Will there be any cast changes for the sequel of the show?
We don’t have any official news about the cast of season 2 yet. But hopefully, we will get to see the same faces in the new installment.
There might be some new actors joining the cast but that depends mainly on the story development which we will only find out after the trailer for the second season comes out.
But looking at Netflix’s past, whenever there are new cast members they are usually introduced to the viewers in short YouTube teasers. These teasers come approximately 6 months before the official release of the show.
So that is a long wait, but for now only expect Roberto Enríquez, Michelle Jenner, María Hervás, Fiorella Faltoyano, and Jean Cruz to make a comeback in the second season of The Cook of Castamar.
What will the second season’s plot explore?
As the show is based on a novel, the story will be similar to it. For those who haven’t watched the series here is a synopsis for you.
The Cook of Castamar is set in Madrid in the 18th century when the place was under the rule of Philip V. Clara. The main character Clara Belmonte finds solace in the royal kitchen after her father’s death. She cooks food for the recently widowed Duke.
It’s a story about the forbidden romance between Diego (Duke) and Belmonte, it explores the hardships the unusual couple faces in their love story. The finale of the first season gave them a happy ending (spoiler alert), the Duke abandons his title to live with the woman he loves.
The first season covered everything in the novel, but Tatiana is adamant about continuing their story. If season 2 is to be released, then the story will revolve around the couple and how Duke copes up with the loss of his prestigious title. That will indeed provide an interesting plot for the second installment.
Where can I watch The Cook of Castamor’s second season trailer?
The answer is nowhere!
Because Netflix hasn’t confirmed the second season yet so that cancels out all the possibilities for official trailers or even teasers for the sequel.
But if things go in favor of fans, then Netflix won’t take a long time in teasing the second season (a teaser might drop a month from now). The trailer is expected to come out 4 to 5 months before the official release of the show.
