The official Twitter account for the live-action series of Yūgo Kobayashi‘s Fermat no Ryōri (Cuisson dans le Fermat or Fermat’s Cuisine) manga revealed a new cast member and the poster visual last Saturday.

The series will premiere on TBS in October.
The manga centers on Gaku Kitada, a talented mathematics scholar, and Kai Asakura, a young but similarly talented chef. After Gaku suffers setbacks on his dream of becoming a mathematician, he meets Kai as he is running his own food business, and joins Kai in an attempt at something new.
Kobayashi launched the manga in Kodansha‘s Monthly Shonen Magazine in September 2018. Kodansha published the manga’s third compiled book volume in May 2022, and it will publish the fourth volume on September 28.
Kobayashi launched the Aoashi manga in Shogakukan‘s Weekly Big Comic Spirits magazine in January 2015. The manga is based on an original story concept by Naohiko Ueno. The manga inspired a television anime that premiered in April 2022. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired.
