It’s no secret why people are obsessed with the Netflix original docu-series ‘Chef’s Table,’ created by Jiro Dreams of Sushi filmmaker David Gelb. The series is visually stunning, for one, but it also succeeds in capturing the imagination, dedication, and philosophy that drives the world’s greatest chefs.

Eater brings word that Netflix will release the second season on Friday, May 27, and a mini-season of four episodes focused on French chefs will be released later this year. To cap it all off, season four will be released on Netflix in early 2017.

The chef lineup for the show is enough to make you dizzy (in a good way): season two will kick off with Alex Atala, chef at D.O.M. in São Paulo. Gelb talks with Eater about shooting the episode: “We went into the jungle with Alex Atala, who I believe is actually the most interesting man in the world, but it was really intense, humid, there were insects… and then Atala catches a snake in the middle of the jungle, and cooks it… eating indigenous foods in the middle of the Amazon is not the same as sitting at a table in the dining room of L’Arpege.”
