During an appearance on Greatest Hits Radio before Christmas, May confirmed that the cooking show was currently being edited and should be out “in the New Year”.
He said to host Simon Mayo when asked what we will see the former Top Gear presenter in next:
“Well there is another Grand Tour which we have filmed that is currently in the edit, and I’m not quite sure when that is going to go out yet.
“Believe it or not, they’ve allowed me to make another series of my cooking show ‘Oh Cook!’ which is also now in the edit. We finished filming it and I think that will be probably be out early in the New Year.
“I hope so, that’s the best time to go out on the telly, because everybody’s broke and miserable and the weather’s terrible, and you know, you might as well watch some long-haired idiot attempt to cook a pie. Why not?
The first series of ‘Oh Cook!’ came out on Prime Video back in 2020 and showed May attempt to cook various different recipes with the help of home economist Nikki Morgan. Following the success of the show, May also released a cook called ‘Oh Cook!: 60 Easy Recipes That Any Idiot Can Make‘.
The Prime Video show became an instant hit, much like May’s travel series James May: Our Man In Japan, receiving a star rating of 4.5 stars out of 5.
No details have been released about the second series of the show yet, however it is expected to consist of seven episodes like the first series.
