Julia stars Sarah Lancashire as the acclaimed chef and David Hyde Pierce as her husband, Paul. In the second season — whose first three episodes will be set in Paris and the French Riviera — “Julia grapples with her rising fame and celebrity,” per the official synopsis. “After spending some much needed time in France while preparing for her second season [of The French Chef], Julia visits a wide variety of renowned restaurants and chefs across both the South of France and the U.S in Washington D.C. and of course, Boston. Social issues prevalent in today’s social landscape are mirrored in Julia’s journey as she and her team spearhead female-driven public television.”
Rounding out the cast are Pierce’s onetime Frasier co-star Bebe Neuwirth, Brittany Bradford, Fran Kranz, Fiona Glascott and Robert Joy.
As previously reported, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star/creator Rachel Bloom will join the series in Season 2 in the recurring role of Elaine Levitch, “a dynamo who comes to WGBH by way of CBS to work with Julia on The French Chef.” Stockard Channing (The West Wing) and Craig Bierko (UnREAL) will also appear early in the season, Glamour reports, while returning guest stars include Judith Light, Isabella Rossellini, Tosin Morohunfola and Christian Clemenson.
