Waffles + Mochi Season 2 Release Date
‘Waffles + Mochi’ season 1 premiered in its entirety on March 16, 2021, on Netflix. It consists of ten episodes with a runtime of 26-32 minutes each.
As far as season 2 is concerned, here’s what we know. Unfortunately, there has been no official confirmation regarding its renewal or cancellation as of now. Since the show is an educational kids series, there are obviously no cliffhangers at the end of its first season. Therefore, the show’s renewal depends entirely on the success of the first season of ‘Waffles + Mochi.’ As it has received a lot of praise from the viewers and the fact that it has not been promoted as a limited series, we can expect the show to be renewed in the next few months.
After establishing their production company in 2018, Higher Ground, former President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle Obama officially signed a multi-year contract with Netflix to produce series and films. The following year, it was announced that they would soon start working on a kids’ food show, originally titled ‘Listen to Your Vegetables & Eat Your Parents’, before being renamed as ‘Waffles + Mochi.’ It was first officially announced in 2019 but wasn’t released until March 2021. Therefore, if it is renewed in the next few months, we can expect ‘Waffles + Mochi’ season 2 to premiere sometime in 2022.
