The recently concluded season two followed the transformative journey of Carmen “Carmy” Berzatto (White), Sydney Adamu (Edebiri), and Richard “Richie” Jerimovich (Moss-Bachrach) as they endeavoured to elevate their sandwich joint to new heights. Struggling with the challenges of renovating and reopening, the team faced bureaucratic hurdles, menu planning dilemmas, and a renewed focus on hospitality. The season delved into the personal and professional growth of each character as they confronted their pasts and contemplated their futures.
