Green Eggs & Ham season 2 release date
If the wait for Green Eggs & Ham season 2 is anything like the first, then subscribers will be a very long time.
From the announcement made in 2015, it took over four years for the series to arrive on Netflix. Production was supposed to take place for three years and was originally scheduled to arrive in Fall 2018.
Production of the second season already appears to be full steam ahead with the recordings of some cast members already complete.
With production in full swing for the next season, we’ll be hoping to see Green Eggs & Ham return sooner than later. We’re speculating that the next season will arrive in 2021.
Potential Release Date: 2021
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.
