The popular and above all critical success of The Bear, which takes us behind the scenes of a restaurant at 200 an hour, seems to have made the world of series envious. Indeed, the BBC will offer a serial sequel to the film The Chef by Philip Barantini, released in 2021, which we strongly advise you to watch if you have not already done so. In addition to the particularity of establishing itself as a punchy thriller in the kitchen world, the feature film was entirely shot in a sequence shot. However, the series, made up of five sixty-minute episodes, will leave aside this staging prowess while respecting its DNA, with a nervous production punctuated by long shots. According to Screen Daily, the series The Chef will be more of a sequel than an adaptation of the film. The plot will take place six months after the events of the latter, when Sous Chef Carly (Vinette Robinson) is now at the head of her own establishment. Incidentally, we learn that part of the cast will be back, including Stephen Graham and Hannah Walters, who respectively played the chef Andy and Emily. Philip Barantini will also direct the first two episodes of the series, while the screenplay has been entrusted to James Cummings, co-writer of The Chef. In short, the BBC has managed to reunite the little family to ensure perfect continuity with the original work. The filming of the series will begin next year and we hope to see it land with us soon after its broadcast in England . As a reminder, The Chef is partly inspired by the real career of Philip Barantini behind the stove. The film immerses us with realism, intensity and immersion in the kitchens of Jones & Sons, a trendy restaurant in London, during a dinner service. Hailed by critics and in particular the New York Times, The Chef nevertheless left empty-handed the BAFTA Awards ceremony last year, despite his eleven nominations. With the series, the team will have a second chance to prove its worth.
