Selena Gomez’s cooking show Selena + Chef has been renewed for a fourth season that will premiere on HBO Max
Selena Gomez‘s cooking show, Selena + Chef, has been renewed for a fourth season.
The news about the 29-year-old singer’s program was initially reported on Wednesday, when it was revealed that the new run of episodes would premiere on HBO Max next year.
The show initially premiered last August and has been a hit with viewers ever since its inception.
Gomez released a statement about the upcoming season of her program, and expressed via Deadline that she was looking forward to learning more tips and tricks in the kitchen.
‘I am looking forward to another season of being in the kitchen with some of the world’s best chefs. Hopefully, my skills have improved,’ she wrote.
The Lose You to Love Me singer also made a point of expressing her excitement for the philanthropic aspects of her show.
‘More importantly, we’ve been able to raise money for incredible charitable organizations,’ she noted.
HBO Max’s Executive Vice President of Non-Fiction and Live-Action Family Programming, Jennifer O’Connell, also issued a statement about the show, which will take place at a beach house during the new set of episodes.
‘We are thrilled to continue this delicious series for season four and even more excited to take it to a new setting,’ she expressed.
She added: ‘The beach vibes will absolutely take it to the next level and we can’t wait to see what recipes Selena and the chefs cook up next!’
The program follows the Disney Channel alum as she meets with a professional chef and attempts to plan out a meal.
The singer also donates $10,000 to her guest’s charity of choice during each episode.
In addition to starring in the series, the performer serves as one of its executive producers.
Development on the show was initially announced last year when an order for ten episodes was given by the streaming platform.
Executive producer Aaron Saidman spoke about the initial idea for the program during an interview with Salon, where he noted that the singer’s period of quarantine saw her cooking for herself much more frequently.
‘Selena found herself at home more than ever and found herself in the kitchen, specifically, more than she ever thought and developed a desire to know how to be better in the kitchen,’ he said.
The producer also expressed that the show’s crew was dedicated to finding qualified professionals to guide the singer through each episode.
‘We wanted to make sure that we were getting great talent and great master chefs, something that was important for Selena and the viewer to get the best possible instruction,’ he said.
Saidman also noted that the performer was incredibly open about not being the most experienced cook, which served to strengthen the program.
‘Selena was very gracious in allowing her flaws in the kitchen to be on display. I do think it’s a really humanizing element of the series,’ he stated.
The new season of Selena + Chef is currently set to be made available to the public next year.
