‘Sweetbitter’ is an American drama television series that airs on the Starz network. The show is based on a 2016 novel of the same name by Stephanie Danler, who is also the creator of the show. ‘Sweetbitter’, like its source material, follows a young woman who becomes a waitress at a prestigious restaurant and is introduced to a whole new world.
A year after the novel’s publication, Starz, in July 2017, announced that it was developing a television adaptation of Sweetbitter. Months after this news surfaces, the network, in October 2017 ordered a full season of the show consisting of six half-hour episodes. Subsequently, Season 1 premiered on May 6, 2018, but it received poor reviews from television critics and poor feedback from viewers. In spite of the poor reception, Starz renewed the show on July 13, 2018, and Season 2 of ‘Sweetbitter’ is slated to premiere sometime in 2019. Here’s everything you need to know about the upcoming season.
