More sushi is served on Roku. The streamer ordered a second season of Sushi Master from Morimoto.
The series, the first competitive series focused on the art of sushi making, will return for six more episodes. It was released in June.
The series is from Ample Entertainment, which is behind Netflix’s Kangaroo Valley and HBO’s The Invisible Pilot.
It features legendary chef Masaharu Morimoto as the head judge and executive producer, who puts the chefs to the test as they participate in challenges that not only honor the skills, ingredients, delicacies, and talents required to perfect the art of sushi making, but also break the rules along the way.
Lyrica Okano also returns as a hostess in addition to Morimoto.
Morimoto’s Sushi Master is produced by Ari Mark, Phil Lott and Kathryn Vaughn.
“We are proud to continue working with our incredible Ample Entertainment staff and with the icon himself, Chef Masaharu Morimoto, to deliver another season of this brand new competitive series For viewers,” said Brian Tannenbaum, head of originals at Roku Media. Morimoto’s Sushi Master offers viewers an addictive competition that honors a rich food culture while promoting culinary innovations worthy of being crowned Sushi Master.
Ari Mark, executive producer and co-founder of Ample Entertainment, said: We are grateful that the audience reacted so positively to the show and can’t wait to bring the fans the experience and fun of Chef Morimoto for another season!
“I am honored and excited to be part of Morimoto’s Sushi master for another season,” Morimoto added. The show celebrates not only the art of sushi, but also creativity and innovation. I’m curious to see what the talented chefs will bring to the sushi table this time.
