Food Network has renewed and expanded Oklahoma country music star/best-selling cookbook author Trisha Yearwood’s cooking show.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the cable network has picked up a sophomore season of “Trisha’s Southern Kitchen.”
The series, which launched in April with six episodes, will expand in its second season to 13 installments and begin production this summer for a fall premiere.
“Our viewers loved seeing a different side of Trisha. Her impressive cooking skills and family recipes, coupled with her natural Southern charm, really resonated with our audience,” Food Network GM and Senior Vice President Bob Tuschman told the trade publication.
Each episode of the series featured the Owasso resident sharing food traditions and updating classic dishes, with each themed episode taking place inside Yearwood’s kitchen. The series will continue to be produced by Ellen Rakieten Entertainment and RelativityREAL, according to the trade publication.
The three-time Grammy winner has released two cookbooks, “Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen” (2008) and “Home Cooking With Trisha Yearwood” (2010), with both reaching the top of the New York Times best-seller section in the how-to and miscellaneous category.
“It was such a great experience, and the positive response from viewers was overwhelming and truly gratifying. I’ve always believed that food brings people together. I can’t wait to share more family memories and recipes with Food Network fans,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.
