For nearly 250 episodes, Good Eats with Alton Brown was a staple of the Food Network and the Cooking Channel. In 2018, a spinoff was introduced called Good Eats: Reloaded, which combines footage from past episodes with new segments on the advances in cooking science and trends since the episode originally aired. Now, Season 2 premieres Monday, April 13, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

‘Good Eats: Reloaded’ Season 2 Preview
The Cooking Channel describes Good Eats: Reloaded as chef Alton Brown “revisiting the Good Eats library and renovating some classic episodes by adding new scenes, new science, and new recipes. The result: Good Eats: Reloaded is both a celebration and update of favorite Good Eats moments, complete with Alton’s signature humor and smart spin on food. And in true Good Eats fashion, fans can also expect cameras where they ought not be.”
The 13-episode first season aired in the fall of 2018 to much success and in August 2019, the Cooking Channel ordered a second season of “Reloaded.”
“I constantly look back and I constantly want to change things and I’m constantly reevaluating,” Brown told TheWrap at the time. “If I’ve learned something as a cook, it’s to constantly reevaluate and question everything you’ve done. Besides, other people are doing research and proving things and you’ve gotta be able to look back at what you’ve done and say, ‘That was wrong’ or ‘I could do it better now’ or ‘There’s a better way of doing that.’”
So a new season “Reloaded” season starts this week with an episode titled “The Egg Files: The Reload,” which “reaches way back to reload episode three of “Good Eats”; there are brand new recipes for fried, scrambled and boiled eggs, as well as a look at an old pan from a new angle.”
Then on April 20, episode two is titled “True Brew: The Reload,” which promises, “A lot has happened in the world of coffee since this episode first aired in 2000; since then, Alton Brown has brewed — and consumed — a lot of coffee; here’s his new look at roasting, grinding, brewing and the gear needed to do it.”
“Reloaded” season two comes on the heels of the Food Network revival of the original Good Eats. This revival series is titled Good Eats: The Return and it premiered on August 25, 2019. There is no word yet on if that revival will continue.
Good Eats: Reloaded airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on the Cooking Channel.
