Despite the fact that Season 2 has yet to begin filming, Fox has ordered an eight-episode third helping of MasterChef Junior. Production on both seasons will begin this spring.
“MasterChef Junior has proven itself to be the little show with a big bite – so big, we’ve picked it up for a third season,” said Simon Andreae, Fox’s reality TV boss, in a release. “It’s incredible to see how unbelievably creative and skilled kids can be in the kitchen — some before they’ve even learned how to spell what they’re cooking.”
The spinoff of the network’s MasterChef series focuses on children between the ages of eight and 13 tackling culinary challenges judged by host/executive producer Gordon Ramsay, along with Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot.
MasterChef Junior‘s first season aired last fall.
