Fans of the Netflix docuseries High on the Hog will be excited to know that it’s coming back for season two.
The series, whose full title is, High on the Hog: How African American Cuisine Transformed America, received critical acclaim following its initial release in May. The show is based on the book of the same name written by food historian Jessica B. Harris.
Wine expert Stephen Satterfield hosts the first season of the series which led viewers on a journey to Benin, West Africa, Texas, South Carolina, New York and Philadelphia, telling the incredible story of how food has connected Black people around the globe and changed America forever.
“I’m so thrilled to announce the second season of High on the Hog with Netflix and to be able to continue this incredible journey through Black food and culture. It has been wonderful to see the powerful reaction audiences had to our first season and we hope to further amplify and empower the Black culinary story and experience,” director and executive producer Roger Ross Williams said, according to Variety.
Satterfield spoke with the outlet earlier this year about the first season of the show, stating, “It’s our agricultural knowledge tied to our culinary knowledge, with this historical and cultural context, which I feel just hasn’t been seen and presented as part of a cohesive story. Until now.”
For those wondering where the series will go next, executive producers Fabienne Toback and Karis Jagger said in a joint statement that “the best is yet to come.”
