Sebastian Maniscalco has made quite a name for himself in the world of comedy, but he's also turning heads in the food scene thanks to his show, "Well Done with Sebastian Maniscalco," which has been renewed for a second season.

The first season of the show, which combines Maniscalco's passions for both comedy and food, has already proven to be a success. It was only released on August 12, 2021, yet, the Discovery+ show has already received favorable responses. On an Instagram post by Food Network showing a preview clip from the show, @carolinajasc wrote, "Wow, I didn't know Sebastian has a show now. That's awesome!!! Definitely going to watch!!!" Other fans also praised Maniscalco's work in the comments. "More content like this please," one fan wrote. "So enjoyable and relatable! Loved it! Going to tell everyone!" another commented on a gelato-themed clip posted to Maniscalco's Instagram.

Some highlights of the first season included the comic and television personality spending a day as a fisherman on the Pacific, learning about latte foam art, and making beignets with Chrissy Teigen (via Amazon).

Sounds like this show is action-packed, right? Well, now that the show has been announced for a round two, we're going to dive into what you can expect from the second season of "Well Done with Sebastian Maniscalco."

When is the release date for Well Done with Sebastian Maniscalco Season 2?

The release date for the first episode of "Well Done with Sebastian Maniscalco" Season 2 is November 16, 2021, according to The Wrap. The second season of the show will also be on the shorter side, with only six episodes — one less than the first season has — that are "hilarious half-hour journeys," according to a statement from Food Network president Courtney White.

The show's first season hasn't even finished rolling out yet — The Wrap notes that the second season was announced just four days after the first season premiered, which is certainly a promising sign for the show. Though the debut season of "Well Done" is seven episodes long, only the first three were available on the August 12 premiere date. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the remaining episodes are planned to be released every Thursday for a month.

That means you have nearly three months to binge all episodes of Season 1 before the first episodes of Season 2 premiere. As you might expect from a food show hosted by a comedian, "Well Done" is an easy and enjoyable watch, filled with appearances from the funny foodie's family and his comedic cohorts, including actors Gillian Jacobs and Oscar Nuñez (via Discovery+).

Who's in the cast?

The only main recurring cast member on "Well Done with Sebastian Maniscalco" is Sebastian Maniscalco himself, but there are several special guests slated for the second season that you should be excited about. Among them are starry names like Whitney Cummings, Vanessa and Nick Lachey, and comedian Bobby Lee, according to The Wrap.

In the show's inaugural season, guests included celebrities such as Russell Peters, Bert Kreischer, Anjelah Johnson, Rich Eisen, and Fortune Feimster (via NextTV). Most of these guests had specialities that tied into the themes of each episode. For example, in one episode, renowned pastry chef Sherry Yard (who has also appeared on shows like "MasterChef") assists the star of the show in creating gelato (via Amazon).

We can expect that the same will go for Season 2, with The Wrap noting that famed dog whisperer Cesar Milan has also been announced as a guest. We predict that he'll have something to do with Maniscalco investigating the eating habits of man's best friend in his episode. Needless to say, we're excited for the adventures Maniscalco will go on in his show's second season.

What's the plot?

"Well Done with Sebastian Maniscalco" is less a narrative-based show than it is a series of food-based adventures and explorations led by Maniscalco, but there will definitely be plenty of exciting surprises in store for the show's second season. According to The Wrap, Season 2 will touch on Maniscalco's previous career as a bartender, including a segment where the comedian will make a signature cocktail for fellow comic Whitney Cummings.

Additionally, Maniscalco will investigate the age-old question of why kids tend to be picky eaters, along with the food habits of dogs.

The show's second season will still incorporate lots of humor and clips of delicious food, just like it did in Season 1. Courtney White, president of Food Network and Cooking Channel, told The Wrap that fans can expect Maniscalco to find "inspiration in relatable questions about kids' menus, high end dog food and the proper way to shake a cocktail."

If you're still not convinced to give this show a watch before its second season is released, know that Decider put the show in their "stream it" category — as opposed to "skip it." So, what are you waiting for? Hop on your (or a friend's) Discovery+ account and have a "Well Done with Sebastian Maniscalco" marathon so that you're ready when Season 2 drops in November.
