TVLine Items: Hell's Kitchen Double Renewal, CMT Awards Date and More

Hell's Kitchen Renewed

Fox is keeping Gordon Ramsay in Hell’s Kitchen, renewing the long-running culinary competition series for Seasons 21 and 22, TVLine has learned.

Hell’s Kitchen is a flagship series for us, and has been a fan-favorite since it first premiered,” Rob Wade, President of Alternative Entertainment & Specials for Fox Entertainment, said in a statement. “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.”

Hell’s Kitchen last aired in September 2021.
