Snoop And Martha's Very Tasty Halloween: Release Date, Challenges, And More - What We Know So Far

At first, it sounds like an AI script has devised a television show based on bits of information fed to it. Martha Stewart? Halloween? Competition? Snoop Dogg? In fact, it is the return of the cooking show duo Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart in the upcoming show "Snoop and Martha's Very Tasty Halloween."

For many, nothing more has to be said. As NME breathlessly wrote back in 2016, "Martha & Snoop's Potluck Dinner Party" was already set to be a hit. From Snoop Dogg constructing portraits of himself and Martha Stewart out of the mozzarella on pizza to Martha Stewart feeding Rick Ross lobster, the programming with these two set a level of uniqueness that the myriad of other food specials could not hope to match. Step aside "Halloween Baking Championship." Lament, "Worst Cooks in America: Halloween Redemption 2." The show to beat this spooky season has been announced.

When is 'Snoop and Martha's Very Tasty Halloween's' release date?

According to UPI, "Snoop and Martha's Very Tasty Halloween" is set to air on October 21. However, it is only a single hour-long special. 

While many may be disappointed by the single episode, many more will be disappointed to learn that you will only be able to watch the show on Peacock. The Futon Critic further reports that "Snoop and Martha's Very Tasty Halloween" is the first result of a deal between Peacock and Buzzfeed to produce "a slate of original unscripted programming that includes multiple projects in active development across celebrity, pop culture, games and pets." 

Currently, you can sign up for a free account, which allows you access to a large selection of films and programming (via Peacock). As the show seems to be a taster for what's to come, it might be released as a freely accessed special to whet the appetite of those leery about subscribing to yet another platform. Considering that Peacock also owns "The Office" as an exclusive program, this might be enough to push people into signing up.

Who's on 'Snoop and Martha's Very Tasty Halloween' special?

One star that will be joining the set of "Snoop and Martha's Very Tasty Halloween" is Alvin Zhou, a food content creator who The Futon Critic says will be the guest judge. You can watch his beautifully cinematic food videos on his YouTube channel

The show will also have Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart, obviously. An introduction for either of them isn't really necessary. However, some may wonder how such a pairing came to be. People charts their friendship from their first meeting when Snoop Dogg appeared on Martha Stewart's show to share his mashed potatoes recipe. Later they met again at the 2015 "Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber," and a chemistry developed that fed into a series of television shows. "She lets me do me and accepts me for who I am," Snoop Dogg shared with People in 2018. "She doesn't try to change me."

In addition to this trio, The Futon Critic explains that three other trios of celebrated bakers will compete before the judges.

What's the format of 'Snoop and Martha's Very Tasty Halloween'?

To perhaps the further disappointment of some, "Snoop and Martha's Very Tasty Halloween" will continue the changes made with the third season of "Martha and Snoop's Potluck Party."

Originally, "Martha and Snoop's Potluck Party" was billed as a cooking show. Except, as Vulture writes, the combination of Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg transformed it into mostly hanging out with various celebrity guests. There were competitions, but that wasn't the point. This changed with "Martha and Snoop's Potluck Party Challenge" and seems to have stayed changed.

People describes that in this special the bakers will be charged with constructing an immersive 12x12 Halloween world that draws inspiration from the concept of fear. Instead of a weird celebrity talkshow space, the special sounds similar to the Halloween specials of "Nailed It!" At least, though, having the now cemented duo of Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart might bring something different to the table.
