'Sweetbitter' season 2: Release date, plot, cast, trailer, and everything you need to know about Tess' upcoming journey
Good news, fans of 'Sweetbitter'. The Starz show, based on Stephanie Danler’s best-selling book, will premiere this mid-July with a brand new second season, meaning more of Tess's life and troubles are going to unfurl in the coming future. The first time we saw the character played by Ella Purnell, she was a 22-year-old who had recently arrived in New York City and landed a job at a popular downtown restaurant right away. Thus she stumbled upon a world of drugs, alcohol, love, lust, dive bars and fine dining, but that's not all as this new flashy, glamorous life is equally chaotic and beyond excruciating for all the attractions it reeks of. So without further ado, here's all you need to know about season two:
'Sweetbitter' season 2 comes out on Sunday, July 14, at 9 PM ET/PT, only on Starz.
According to Deadline, in season 2, "Tess soon realizes she won’t survive at the restaurant if she doesn’t play the game. She experiences a sexual awakening, a discovery of her voice, and, ultimately, a recognition of her own power. Her colleagues 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."
Based on the book by Danler, the series was brought to life by Stuart Zicherman ('The Americans') who is returning to reprise his role of showrunner and executive producer, with Danler serving as creator and executive producer.
Ella Purnell plays the lead role of Tess in the popular Starz drama. Tom Sturridge joins the cast as Jake, Caitlin FitzGerald as Simone, Evan Jonigkeit as Will, Eden Epstein as Ari, Jasmine Mathews as Heather, Daniyar as Sasha, and Paul Sparks as Howard rounds off the main cast of the show.
The trailer for 'Sweetbitter' season two has been out since January and takes us through the many glitzy and equally scandalous escapades of Tess in the upcoming season. She talks about wanting to explore more of the city and find her secret sports, but of course, trouble always lurks somewhere or the other, just around the corner.
