What’s cooking over on Fox? Gordon Ramsay’s long-running cooking competition TV series, Hell’s Kitchen! According to a breaking report from Deadline, Hell’s Kitchen has been renewed by Fox for two more seasons. Despite having been around for over 15 years with 20 seasons, the series’ most recent season was the leading cooking show on TV for adults aged 18-49. It is also one of the most-streamed series on Hulu and Fox Now, so it should come as no surprise that Hell’s Kitchen has been renewed by the network.
On Hell’s Kitchen, aspiring chefs are metaphorically put through hell in Chef Gordon Ramsay’s kitchen, which serves as an intense culinary education for contestants. To prove they have what it takes, the chefs compete in several weekly competitions until one is crowned the victor by the end of the season. To the victor go the spoils, and in the case of Hell’s Kitchen, the winner receives a position at one of Ramsay’s many restaurants as well as the title of Hell’s Kitchen winner.
In speaking on Hell’s Kitchen being renewed for at least two more seasons, Rob Wade, the President of Alternative Entertainment and Specials at Fox, stated:
Hell’s Kitchen is a flagship series for us, and has been a fan-favorite since it first premiered. In fact, it’s the show that first brought Gordon Ramsay to Fox, essentially serving as the launchpad for our long-standing relationship with him. We’d like to thank Gordon, our producing partners ITV and A. Smith & Co. and the entire crew of this seminal series. We couldn’t be happier to have all of these cooks in the kitchen for its 21st and 22nd seasons.
