It was a four-year wait for the first season of Green Eggs and Ham, and it’s been almost two and a half years since the show first debuted on Netflix. Fans have waited patiently for a second season, which is confirmed to be coming to Netflix in April 2022.
Green Eggs & Ham is a Netflix Original animated series based on the 1960 children’s book of the same name by author Dr. Seuss. With an all-star ensemble, Green Eggs & Ham is one of the best Original animated series on Netflix to date. Not to mention it has a killer theme tune to boot.

Why does it take so long to produce Green Eggs & Ham?
Typically, any production that involves animation can take an incredibly long time to produce.
Anime, being the best example, can take up to three months for a production team to produce just one episode. Whereas films such as Toy Story 4 and Frozen 2 are in development for many years before their cinematic release dates. Green Eggs & Ham is subject to the same lengthy process as every other animated title
If the production of Green Eggs & Ham took three years to produce, that’s an astounding 2.7 months per episode, even at four years, that’s still an amazing 3.7 months to produce an episode each. Considering just how much work went into the creation of Green Eggs & Ham, the production studios behind the incredible Original had a rocket strapped to their back and smashed it out of the park.
Green Eggs & Ham is a beautifully crafted television series and everyone involved should be proud of what they achieved. We can’t wait to see what’s more in store for Guy and Sam.
