Season two of Starz’s Sweetbitter, the half-hour series based on the bestselling book by Stephanie Danler, is set to premiere on July 14, 2019. With the new season just a little over a month away, Starz has just released the official full trailer for the drama starring Ella Purnell.
The minute and a half trailer begins with Jake (played by Tom Sturridge) telling Tess (Purnell) she’s different. He can’t describe what he means other than to say, “Than you were before.” The trailer reveals Tess may be different but she’s retained her curiosity about life and about her new city.
Season two also stars Caitlin FitzGerald (Masters of Sex), Paul Sparks (The Girlfriend Experience), Evan Jonigkeit (X Men: Days of Future Past), Eden Epstein (In Between Men), Jasmine Mathews (Blue Bloods), and Daniyar (Claws).
Season two will air on Sundays at 9pm ET/PT.
Author Stephanie Danler created the series and serves as an executive producer. Stuart Zicherman (The Americans) returned to guide the series as showrunner and also executive produces.
The Sweetbitter Plot:
“What comes after being new? Tess (Ella Purnell) has the job, and she’s ready to invest in it. She’s all in, but soon realizes she won’t survive at the restaurant if she doesn’t play the game. Tess finds her appetite awakened. She’s starving for knowledge but investing in this life means more than knowing the difference between wine from Bordeaux and Burgundy. Tess discovers that knowledge alone is not enough: she needs to be able to use it, to move from her head to her body. She needs experience.
Tess’s appetite carries her through a sexual awakening, a discovery of her voice, and, ultimately, a recognition of her own power. However, not everyone shares this hunger. 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.”
