Top Chef Family Style Season 2: Release Date, Contestants, And New Details

Earlier this month, Peacock released the first episode of "Top Chef Family Style," a spinoff series of Bravo's popular and long-running "Top Chef" show. Similar to "Top Chef," the spinoff series features talented chefs from all around the United States who compete in a series of challenges, though, this time, children (AKA cooking prodigies) are paired with an adult family member to complete in a series of Quickfire and Elimination Challenges, according to Bravo TV. The brand new series is hosted by Meghan Trainor, with Marcus Samuelsson as the head judge, and features thirteen duos competing for the coveted "Top Chef" title.

Those who are fans of "Top Chef" will find the same dramatic tension, humor, and amazing culinary delights in the new spinoff series, though, admittedly, many of the laughs will come from the show's youngest contestants who hilariously attempt to navigate some of the show's most serious challenges. Ahead, we provide just a few details about the second season of "Top Chef Family Style."

When will the second season of Top Chef Family Style premiere?

Bravo TV has yet to announce any plans for a second season of "Top Chef Family Style." This lack of an announcement makes sense, as only four episodes of the first season of the show have premiered on the Peacock streaming service. Each week, a new episode of the show will premiere on Peacock.

The show is hosted by pop music star Meghan Trainor, who brings a bit of light to the rather intense cooking show. "In addition to being a phenomenally talented performer, Meghan is a vibrant and hilarious ray of light who is the perfect fit for NBC's brand," Susan Rovner, chairman of entertainment content at NBCUniversal Television & Streaming, told Variety. Marcus Samuelsson, host of the PBS show, "No Passport Required" and winner of the second season of "Top Chef Masters," according to his website, will be supplying his expertise as the head judge on "Top Chef Family Style." Throughout the season, JoJo Siwa, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Elizabeth Berkley will also appear as guest judges on the show, per Food and Wine.

Who will appear in the second season of the show?

While it is not known who will join the show if it is renewed for a second season, it is highly likely that the contestants will be just as talented as those competing in the first season of "Top Chef Family Style." The 13 duos competing in the first season of the show bring a varied set of skills and charming personalities. According to Food and Wine, these contestants include Jack Cruickshank and his mother, Bobbie Lopez; Kaj Friis-Hecht and his aunt, Liz Thorpe; Khalil Blue and his father, Willie Blue; Milan Bhayana and his mother, Chandrani Ghosh; Ocean Kanekoa and his sister, Jaydene Kanekoa; Taylor Ellison and his mother, Elizabeth Frame Ellison; Ainsley Crouse and her mother, Hayley Crouse; Anika Kumar and her mother, Anupama Kumar; Brooke Nathanson and her grandmother, Carol Weiss; Delilah Flores and her uncle, Daniel Flores; Eva Kopelman and her mother, Jenn Kopelman; Kennedy Torres and her mother, Rosie Torres; and Kiran Alwy and her father, Moid Alwy.

The young contestants on the show are quite literally the definition of prodigies, with many picking up cooking skills as young children and honing these skills to open businesses and other successful side ventures with their family members accompanying them on this particular journey.

Here's what we know about season 19 of Top Chef

Earlier this month, Bravo announced that the 19th season of "Top Chef" would be debuting on the network at some point in the coming months, though no specific date was set for its premiere. Bravo did say that the newest season will be filming in Houston, Texas. "The racial and ethnic diversity of Houston's population is represented in the city's vibrant culinary scene, making it a perfect backdrop to inspire our next wave of cheftestants," Bravo said in a press release, according to Town & Country. "We hope to showcase the rich heritage of Houstonians through the food that defines them."

Padma Lakshmi will be returning as the host, while Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons will be returning as judges. Aside from these details, Bravo has yet to reveal what viewers might be able to expect during the 19th season of "Top Chef."
