The main protagonists, Ella, Chico and Raymond are intertwined with each other to the point of oblivion. Yet, as the dynamics shift, they are unable to get their foot out. They get trapped in dramatic circumstances and are left drowning in self-introspection. Antoinette Jadaone’s directorial portrays Filipino cuisine ever so elegantly that it becomes the highlight of the series.

Naturally, fanatics are demanding a sequel for this romantic drama. If you, too, are wondering whether Netflix has greenlit the Replacing Chef Chico Season 2, here is your answer!

Replacing Chef Chico Season 2 Release Date

This Phillippine romantic drama was announced officially on September 18, 2023, during the See What’s Next event. However, rumours of the first Fillippino-produced Netflix Original were flourishing incessantly before the confirmation. It was speculated to be a true story about a high-ticket restaurant franchise and the inner dynamics of the team. However, Replacing Chef Chico turned out to be a fictional illustration of real-life restaurant connoisseurs. Jadaone and his team of writers went through an extensive process of interviewing several chefs to craft this poignant tale.

Due to the same, a second iteration seems to be in order. Of course, the cliffhangers left by the debut season would prove to be a pivotal factor in the approval of the sequel. Though it hasn’t been long since the debut season’s release on November 24, the audience’s patience seems to be wearing thin. And the demands are rising imminently. If Netflix commissions it soon, Replacing Chef Chico Season 2 is expected to be released in the last quarter of 2024 or early 2025.

Replacing Chef Chico Series Overview

Authentic to its title, Replacing Chef Chico chronicles the tale of Ella (Alessandra de Rossi), a sous chef at an exclusive restaurant, Hains, tasked with replacing her head chef, Chico (Sam Milby). After witnessing Chico, her love interest who happens to be engaged, fall into a coma, Ella embarks on a mission to salvage Hains. However, she isn’t alone in her mission. Raymond (Piolo Pascual), the “newly hired consultant”, is also tasked with protecting the downfall of Hains. Both, Raymond and Ella, naturally freaked out, began competing against the standards set by Chico, hoping to continue his legacy.

However, instead of just leading the kitchen, Ella introduces several new propositions to help Hains grow. The restaurant harbours a unique touch; it is renowned for preparing customized meals for its consumers. But now, under Ella’s supervision, the drama starts to brew alongside these meal plans. As Chico bounces back from a coma, nothing remains the same–especially not Ella’s feelings towards him.

Replacing Chef Chico Season 2 Plot

As the curtains close on Replacing Chef Chico, the head chef has pushed Ella to the point of no retreat. She hangs her chef coat, ready to bolt and join Raymond on his new adventure. However, before she can accept Raymond’s offer and manage his new restaurant, Chico’s mother turns the table on her. She offers her Chico’s position as well as a knife with her name inscribed on it to lure Ella back. Of course, her ploy works as Ella resumes her role, leaving Raymond alone on his way to Singapore.

With so many loose ends, Replacing Chef Chico Season 2 seems to have a plot set already. It will certainly document Ella’s tale of replacing Chico, this time literally. Moreover, it will unveil Raymond and Ella’s relationship dynamics as the duo struggle to manage their own careers. Overall, the sequel seems to be as dramatic as its predecessor.
