'Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution' Renewed

Jamie OliverCouldn't get enough of 'Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution' the first time around? You'll be able to join British chef Jamie Oliver for a second season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

ABC has ordered six more episodes of the the Emmy-winning show, but with a slight format change. While the first season focused on Oliver's efforts to completely overhaul the lunch program at a school in West Virginia, season 2 will see him hit up schools, offices, homes and restaurants in Los Angeles.

'Revolution' is an American version of Oliver's U.K. hit, and debuted to critical praise earlier this year. Season 2 will most likely premiere either at midseason or next summer.

Oliver's goal is to educate people in the most unhealthy areas of the country about healthy eating.

It's going to be interesting to see how Jamie's show in Los Angeles can match the high drama in his first season show in the fattest town in the USA, which had so many fascinating characters attacking him left and right:

Damn. I was sort of hoping this was news about The Gates. :-(

I'm delighted that Jamie will be back! Too bad they aren't going to focus on the more problematic regions of our country -- areas that are primarily low-income, overweight and/or obese, like Mississippi/Kentucky/Arkansas (yes, I looked it up). I watched his series last year, and saw the initial reluctance (Hey, Alice!) and eventual acceptance of his suggested changes to the everyday diet of WV school kids. There were MEASURABLE, POSITIVE results. I'd like to see a follow-up report on that effort.
Perhaps doing the new series in LA will garner better ratings? Pfft. As long as more people watch it, and more people recognize and adopt his message of eating foods that are fresh and nutritious? I'm good.

EXCELLENT choice! Finally, some viewing that will teach people instead of just waste our time! Thank you Jamie Oliver.

Not every show has to be low life and dirt.
We need good shows like this.

I agree with Susan...enough of these jerks who insert their ads in what is meant to be a subject-focused discussion.

Jamies great! I am so happy they are bringing this back. Its hilarious to hear peoples remarkes about bad eating habits.
Besides we need good shows that promote changing the way Schools and America think, when it comes to their care of our children.
I'm in health care and its sad to help people when they let their health go but its worse to see people not care about the children in a country that has choices.

I knew there had to be people out there in the world like you...I just hadn't met anyone who thought learning to eat better was idiotic.
