BURBANK, Calif.–November 2, 2023–Nickelodeon is serving up seconds with the renewal of the Annie Award-winning The Tiny Chef Show, starring culinary social media sensation Tiny Chef. Produced in association with Imagine Television and Nickelodeon Animation, season two (22 half-hour episodes) will follow Chef as he embarks on all-new herbivorous adventures and cooks up a fresh assortment of plant-based recipes and bite-sized meals in his tree-stump home. From preparing tea for the Queen Bee, trying his hand at magic and facing his ultimate fear of chopping onions, Chef’s kitchen is the place to be. The new season will commence with two brand-new holiday-themed specials: “Fwendsgiving,” premiering Monday, Nov. 20 at 11:30 a.m. (ET/PT); and “Tiny Chef’s Marvelous Mish Mesh Special,” on Monday, Dec. 4 at 11:30 a.m. (ET/PT).
In “Fwendsgiving,” which features special guest Jackie Tohn (GLOW), Chef prepares a Friendsgiving feast to welcome his friends home, but when a snow storm blows in, he may have to eat alone. In “Tiny Chef’s Marvelous Mish Mesh Special,” Chef hosts a celebration of everyone’s favorite holiday traditions with his celebrity friends: Golden Globe® nominee Kristen Bell (The Good Place); Emmy® nominee Mayim Bialik (The Big Bang Theory); Kira Kosarin (The Thundermans); Young Dylan (Dylan Gilmer, Tyler Perry’s Young Dylan); and influencers April Moore (AprilAthena7) and Santa J. Claus. Chef makes his marvelous Mish Mesh cookies, saving one to give to Santa—except Chef forgot to send Santa his invitation. The episode also features Alan Cumming (The Good Wife) as the announcer. Season two of The Tiny Chef Show is set to debut on Nick's preschool platforms in the U.S., and Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. channels internationally.
Available to stream now on Paramount+, the first season of The Tiny Chef Show features RuPaul as the announcer, alongside a star-studded celebrity guest lineup, including: Bell, Sky & Ocean Brown, Tabitha Brown, Josh Dela Cruz, Josh Gad, Liza Koshy, RZA, That Girl Lay Lay and Keith L. Williams. With help from Chef’s famous friends and fellow tiny pals--Olly, Chef’s enthusiastic robot buddy; Ruby, Chef's fuzzy caterpillar pet; Henry, a loyal snail; and Stump Band, the show’s house musical group--season one follows Chef as he conquers new challenges and whips up delectable veggie-forward dishes in his very tiny kitchen.
