After an all-star cast propelled the first season of BEEF to the podium on Exclaim!'s top 10 series of 2023, creator Lee Sung Jin has reportedly assembled an even stronger ensemble for the show's second season. 

According to Deadline, Lee — who also served as executive producer — has tapped May December breakout Charles Melton, Priscilla herself Cailee Spaeny, and industry vets Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway to lead Season 2.

While relative newcomers Melton and Spaeny will come together for the first time on the project, it's set to mark Gyllenhaal and Hathaway's third time sharing the screen following acclaimed turns in Brokeback Mountain and Love & Other Drugs

Led by wins for Steven Yeun (Outstanding Lead Actor), Ali Wong (Outstanding Lead Actress) and Lee (Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series), BEEF cleaned up at the Emmys last month. Lee will look to do so again with his star-studded new cast in 2026, as production is reportedly slated to begin later this year.
