The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell will not return to Netflix for a second season.
The cooking show, produced by Jim Henson’s Alternative arm and Wilshire Studios, was certainly a unique offering from the streaming giant. A wickedly talented baker and artist, Instagram star McConnell welcomed audiences into her terrifyingly delicious home to create delectable confections and hauntingly disturbing decor – all the whole interacting with a parade of grotesque and gothic puppet creatures. The series premiered on Friday 12th October last year, just in time for Halloween.
The recipe, though, was perhaps too niche for Netflix: McConnell tweeted this week to confirm that it would not be renewed by the streamer.
“I’m very sad to say, I’ve been told there won’t be another season of The Curious Creations. Thank you to everyone who watched and has supported the series. Thank you to Henson, Wilshire, Netflix and the amazing people who made the show with me. I’m so grateful.”

9th October 2018
“On the top of a dark and distance mountain…” That’s now how cooking shows normally start, but The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell isn’t your normal cooking show – and a new trailer confirms it.
A wickedly talented baker and artist, Christine McConnell welcomes you into her terrifyingly delicious home to create delectable confections and hauntingly disturbing decor – so far, so typical, until you take into account the parade of puppet creatures that populate her abode. The series is produced by Henson Alternative and Wilshire Studios, with all episodes arriving on Netflix on Friday 12th October – just in time for Halloween.
Here’s the trailer:
The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell is available on Netflix UK, as part of an £8.99 monthly subscription.
Netflix heats up two new cooking series
31st July 2018
Netflix’s kitchen is heating up, as it orders two new cooking series to join its growing culinary menu.
The first course is Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat. Based on Samin Nosrat’s best-selling, James Beard Award-winning book, the show is described by Netflix as the essential guide to the basic elements of good cooking.
Directed by Caroline Suh, each episode of the four-part series joins spirited guide Samin as she travels to home kitchens of Italy, the southern islands of Japan, the heat of the Yucatán and back to Berkeley’s Chez Panisse – where she started her culinary career – to demystify and explore the central principles of what makes food delicious and how each of us can easily incorporate those elements into every dish.
Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat is produced by Jigsaw Productions, the creators of Cooked.
The second item on its menu is The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell.
The show promises a way to “experience the art of darkness in ways you’ve never imagine” with baker and artist Christine McConnell.
As she welcomes viewers into her terrifyingly delicious home, she bakes, sculpts and sews every episode to create delectable confections and hauntingly disturbing decor, with the help of her colorful collection of creatures.
The series is produced by Henson Alternative and Wilshire Studios
Both projects were announced at Netflix’s TCA press tour event at the weekend, and join a feast of cooking programmes they range from Nailed It! to Chef’s Table.
