Iron Chef: Quest for an Iron Legend Season 2 Release Date: When is it?
Currently, Iron Chef: Quest for an Iron Legend has yet to be renewed for season 2. However, we are optimistic that the show will return with the second installment, and although it is difficult to predict a specific release date, the new season is expected to arrive sometime in 2023.
The Cast of Iron Chef: Quest for an Iron Legend Season 2
The first season introduced us to several casts distributed into two categories of Iron Chef and Challenger Chefs. The first one consists of experienced chefs while the latter are just regular chefs fighting to earn a professional name in the cooking show.
Alton Brown and Kristen Krish serve as the show’s hosts while Andrew Zimmern and Nilou Motamed are the core judges.
The guest judges of the first season include Francis Lam, Nancy Silverton, Justin Willman, Loni Love, Keyshawn Johnson, Vernon Davis, Wolfgang Puck, Lorena Garcia, and Masaharu Morimoto.
Here are the names of the first season’s competitors–
- Gabriela Cámara
- Dominique Crenn
- Marcus Samuelsson
- Curtis Stone
- Ming Tsai
- Mason Hereford
- Curtis Duffy
- Claudette Zepeda
- Esther Choi
- Gregory Gourdet
- Yia Vang
- Mei Lin
In the first season, Claudette Zepeda of the Challengers Chef was declared the winner. For season 2 contestants, it is expected that the viewers will be introduced to a whole new batch of contestants.
What can we expect from Season 2 of Iron Chef: Quest for an Iron Legend?
The official synopsis of Netflix reads: “The legendary Iron Chef series is reborn with a supersized approach to the ground-breaking culinary competition that started it all. It’s been called the toughest culinary challenge a chef will ever experience.
“This is where world-class cuisine meets high-octane sports. Five new trailblazing Iron Chefs will welcome brave Challenger Chefs to the reimagined Kitchen Stadium, where they’ll face off and be pushed to the limits of endurance and creativity, as they cook up extraordinary culinary creations. The competition’s most successful Challenger will return to battle in a grand finale for the chance to be named the first ever Iron Legend.”
It is expected that the concept will remain the same in season 2 and just like the first season, it will focus on the competition between the Challenger Chefs and Iron Chefs. It’s not if the cast of the Iron Chefs will remain the same but the new contestants better prepare themselves for some new twists as they will be facing one of the fiercest cook-offs.
