Are you ready for another helping of Julia? The moreish biopic starring Sarah Lancashire as Julia Child has been renewed by HBO Max for a second season. 
HBO Max's Sarah Aubrey said in a press release: "Through her masterful performance, Sarah Lancashire welcomed us into the life of Julia Child, a trailblazer who, among her many accomplishments, redefined the possibilities of public television and, in turn, brought French cuisine and culture into American living rooms."
"We are grateful to our creative team, led by Chris Keyser and Daniel Goldfarb, and talented cast who entranced us all with an endless helping of warmth and charm. Julia is the perfect show for this moment and we look forward to serving more in season two."
Julia, which premiered in March, follows Lancashire's Julia Child as she battles to make her innovative cookery show The French Chef a success in the early 1960s. Though the series eventually won a Peabody Award and is now regarded as a seminal moment in public television, Child was initially dismissed by male executives as unsuitable for TV because of her distinctive voice and statuesque appearance.
The first series, which co-stars David Hyde-Pierce and Bebe Neuwirth, concludes with its eighth episode today (May 8).
