FOX’s love of all things Gordon Ramsay continues. The network has renewed the outspoken chef’s reality series, Hell’s Kitchen, for two years — seasons 11 and 12. Season 10 is scheduled to kick off on May 29th and will run twice a week starting in June. A double renewal for the FOX show isn’t new. The network ordered seasons nine and 10 back in February 2011.
MasterChef will also return on May 29th, for the start of that show’s third season. Ramsay’s newest show, Hotel Hell, is set to premiere on June 4th. Kitchen Nightmares was renewed for a fifth season in February but the network hasn’t decided when that will air. Could it be that FOX is planning to start a Chef Ramsay channel someday soon?
Here’s the press release regarding the Hell’s Kitchen renewals:
FOX GOES BACK FOR TWO MORE HELPINGS OF “HELL’S KITCHEN”
Season 10 Starts Cooking Tuesday, May 29 on FOX
FOX has ordered an 11th and 12th season of the Gordon Ramsay culinary competition series HELL’S KITCHEN. In the hit cooking series, aspiring restaurateurs are put through an intense culinary academy to prove they possess the right combination of ingredients to win a life-changing grand prize.
On Tuesday, May 29 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), Chef Ramsay returns for the Season 10 premiere of HELL’S KITCHEN. Each week on HELL’S KITCHEN, as the teams are whittled down, the chefs get one step closer to earning the coveted black chef jacket. Eventually two finalists will compete head-to-head to impress Ramsay with their skills, and only one lucky chef will walk away with the ultimate prize.
Beginning Monday, June 4 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), HELL’S KITCHEN expands to twice per week with all-new episodes Mondays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and Tuesdays (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).
HELL’S KITCHEN is produced by ITV Studios America in association with A. Smith & Co. Productions. Arthur Smith, Kent Weed and Gordon Ramsay serve as executive producers. “Like” HELL’S KITCHEN on Facebook at www.facebook.com/hellskitchen.
