MasterChef Junior is one of the few shows on television that the entire family can truly enjoy together,” said Fox Chairman Kevin Reilly. “I can’t wait to see what Gordon, Joe, Graham and the next round of rambunctious, ridiculously talented junior chefs cook up in Season 2.”

  • Yay!!! It was better than the original. They acted more civilized than the adults and supported one another. With the exception of one.

  • Great news, I really liked the show. Hopefully this time, they can cast the kids from other states than California and New York. Maybe do the taping in the summer so it’s better for the kids that way.
