Netflix just announced the renewal of ‘The Goop Lab’ for a second season. While the release date and production details are not yet known, what we do know is that there will be another 6-episode season, thirty minutes per episode. We also know that Gwyneth Paltrow will return to host. The episodes similarly to last season will focus on lifestyle, female empowerment, and wellness.
This news is contentious due to controversy surrounding the first season. Many viewed the first season as perpetuating pseudoscience, polarizing women, and playing into negative wellness/diet culture. Despite the harsh feedback, the show had so many viewers that a second season was inevitable. The host and founder of ‘The Goop Lab’ Gwyneth Paltrow had this to say, “What I think is great is that we are a brand that people feel strongly about,” “one way or another”.
