Get ready, you guys, because Selena Gomez is returning to your TV screens in a brand new show! That’s right, the former Disney actress just announced that she was getting her very own cooking series on HBO Max, and we have all the exciting deets.
According to a press release, the 27-year-old will team up with a different master chef during each episode — remotely, of course — and together, they’ll take on all different types of cuisine, share various tips and tricks and deal with all different problems people may face in the kitchen — from smoking ovens to missing ingredients. Each episode will highlight a food-related charity, and this “informative cookalong” will embrace both the struggle and the joy of learning to cook — while inviting audiences to follow along at home.
“I’ve always been very vocal about my love of food. I think I’ve been asked hundreds of times in interviews if I had another career, what would I do and I’ve answered that it would be fun to be a chef,” the Wizards of Waverly Place alum explained in a statement. “I definitely don’t have the formal training though! Like many of us while being home I find myself cooking more and experimenting in the kitchen.”
Sarah Aubrey, the Head of Original Content at HBO Max, added, “We are so excited to have Selena Gomez in our first wave of programming on HBO Max and watch her adventures in the kitchen as she, like many of us, tries to improve her cooking skills during quarantine. Blending her determination with top-tier culinary artists is sure to entertain and educate viewers about something we’re all trying to work through — how to make cooking at home exciting, fun and delicious.”
Wow, how awesome does that sound?! There’s unfortunately no release date for the show just yet, but we’ll be waiting with our aprons in hand!
