LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) — “Hell’s Kitchen” has cooked up another couple of seasons.
Fox has renewed the series for an 11th and 12th season, the network said Thursday, ensuring that fans will be treated to the sight of Gordon Ramsay bellowing at terrified aspiring chefs for a long time to come.
The 10th season of “Hell’s Kitchen” premieres May 29 at 8 p.m.
The 9th season of “Hell’s Kitchen,” which aired from July to Sept. 2011, averaged a 3.4/10 in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and 7.5 million total viewers — identical in the demo to the season before that, and up three percent in total viewership from the season before.
The series, which is produced by ITV Studios America in association with A. Smith & Co. Productions, is executive-produced by Ramsay, Arthur Smith and Kent Weed.
Ramsay’s other Fox series, “Kitchen Nightmares,” was recently renewed for a sixth season by the network.
