Starz has set a date for the return of Sweetbitter. The network has set the summer return of the show for July 14th.
The show is based on the best selling book of the same name by Stephanie Danler’s. The series will premiere at 9 PM ET/PT on Starz in the U.S. and Canada, and on the StarzPlay platform in the UK, Germany and Spain.
If you aren’t familiar with Sweetbitter, it tells the story of Tess, a 22-year-old who arrives in New York City ready to pursue a new life. When she’s invited to train at one of the best restaurants in the city, she thinks she’s found a steady income and a safe place to wait. But Tess is quickly intoxicated by the chaotic, adrenalized world behind-the-scenes: tasting expensive wine, exploring dive bars, and learning who she can trust.
In the second season, Tess will learn that she won’t survive at the restaurant if she doesn’t play the game. It’s what New York is, after all – one big game.
Sweetbitter also stars Caitlin FitzGerald, Tom Sturridge, Paul Sparks, Evan Jonigkeit, Eden Epstein, Jasmine Mathews and Daniyar.
