The Tables are Turning on Final Table, Now Cancelled
In 2019, the show’s top contestant Hollingsworth sat down for an interview with Eater Los Angeles and talked about what he’d like to see happen in season 2. “I think I would make it more challenging to pick a wider mix of countries,” he said. He also believed the creativity side of things could be amplified, adding, “I think it would be good to let chefs get creative with dishes instead of having them recreate something specific.”
However, season 2 did not happen. On the other hand, Netflix also never shared a cancellation announcement for the show. Is there a chance that the popular cooking show comes back on Netflix one day?
We think the chances for a season 3 are extremely slim: it has now been almost 3 years now that The Final Table has released on Netflix. Netflix usually takes about 2-6 months to renew a popular show for a new season. We have seen a few exceptions during the pandemic, which caused many delays in show renewals. However, since 3 years have gone by, all signs point to a cancellation of The Final Table Season 2.

About this show:
The Final Table Season 2 is cancelled. The cooking competition and reality TV series started out great when it was first released on Netflix in August 2018. Top chefs dived into the contest whipping up sensational dishes from nine nations. Each episode was focused on one particular country and the teams had to create foods based on that country. The interesting part was that each episode also had a new panel of judges representing the chosen country.
Despite having a unique twist, exaggerated drama, and a large number of featured chefs, The Final Table couldn’t do great in the end. While a lot of people did enjoy it, thousands of others believed it didn’t live up to its potential. Some were not amused with the host Andrew Knowlton’s commentary while others accused it of racism. It earned only a 38% score on Rotten Tomatoes with the audience calling it a pro-white cooking show since all the people of color were eliminated quite early.
The Final Table is a global culinary competition show featuring the world's most talented chefs fighting for a spot at the elite, Final Table made up of the greatest chefs from around the globe. The series features 12 teams of two chefs from around the world cooking the national dishes of Mexico, Spain, England, Brazil, France, Japan, the U.S., India and Italy. Each episode focuses on a different country and its cuisine, with celebrity ambassadors, food critics and the country's greatest chef eliminating teams until the finale.
