Renewed: Zumbo’s Just Desserts
Seven strikes a deal with Netflix for a surprise second season of reality cooking show.
Seven reality show Zumbo’s Just Desserts may have been a fail on Australian television but an international screening through Netflix has led to a second season commission.
The Australian Financial Review reports Seven Studios has inked a co-production deal with Netflix for another season.
The 2016 series, which also featured Rachel Khoo Brazilian-born pastry chef Gigi Falanga, was on occasions fourth in its timeslot.
But Zumbo already appears on another Netflix series, Sugar Rush.
Seven has previously made Beat Bugs with Netflix, despite CEO Tim Worner complaining that Netflix, Facebook and Google were eating into the local advertising market. The show went on to score Emmy Award nominations.
Zumbo’s company has gone into voluntary administration.
