Here’s everything we know so far about the upcoming season:
The Cook of Castamar Season 2 May or May Not Happen
Currently, the prospect of the show’s second season remains uncertain as to the fact that show still hasn’t been renewed by Netflix even though we’re already halfway through 2022.
The series debut season attained a lot of attention and it specifically gained huge popularity in Spain and some parts of the nation. But is this enough for Netflix to renew the series for another season run? We absolutely have no idea.
Also looking back at the first season’s ending, it was a satisfactory ending the two main characters had a grand wedding and lived happily ever after, and continuing the story further will only spoil the essence of the first season’s storyline but only if the makers are willing to divert the story and explore other interests then why not. But for now let’s wait for Netflix to make the decision.
The Cook of Castamar Season 2: Release Date— When is it arriving?
The showrunners have not yet announced about the renewal of the second season of The Cook of Castamar. The first season was released in February 2021 and till now, we haven’t got any update about a possible new season. Although the show is available on Netflix, the renewal decision solely lies on Atresplayer Premium as it’s the original streaming network for the series The Cook Castamar.
So it’s up to Netflix whether the series will have another season. Filming for the first season was completed in 2020 and it aired in February 2021. Should a third instalment get renewed by the end of the year, it will arrive in late 2022 or early 2023.

The Upcoming season will bring back the cast members as we saw in the first season of The Cook of Castamar although the producers have not revealed anything about the official cast lineup as the third season’s renewal status is still pending.

The plotline of The Cook of Castsmer is set in the 18th century and follows a romantic relationship between a cook who has agoraphobia and a widowed man of noble status.

Clara Belmonte, the cook looks after the pitches as she feels more comfortable being in the kitchen as she has agoraphobia.

However, both of them try to recover from their hardships whenever they are alone.
