Gordon Ramsay is ready to endure more Kitchen Nightmares.
As part of its fall schedule non-release on Monday morning, Fox announced that the 2023-24 TV season would feature an all-new season of Kitchen Nightmares, which abruptly ended nine years ago when Ramsay decided it was time to “time to call it a day.”
Ramsay announced back in June 2014 that he would stop making new episodes of Kitchen Nightmares, which had become an international hit since debuting in the UK in 2004. After airing for five seasons across the pond, an American version was brought to Fox in 2007. It aired for seven seasons.
“I’m currently filming 4 new episodes for [the UK’s] Channel 4, which will be my last,” Ramsay explained at the time, in a letter posted to his official website. “I’ve had a phenomenal 10 years making 123 episodes, 12 seasons, shot across 2 continents, watched by tens of millions of people and sold to over 150 countries. It’s been a blast but it’s time to call it a day.
“During this time, I’ve visited over 100 restaurants, meeting and trying to help or in some cases failing to help, some of the most weird and wonderful people,” he added. “Of course Amy’s Baking Company is a standout along with Bonaparte’s but there were good times too; the lovely sisters at La Galleria and Momma Cherri’s to name but two.”
Interestingly, four years after Ramsay put a fork in Kitchen Nightmares, a restaurant makeover show, he and Fox debuted Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back, another restaurant makeover show, which ran for three seasons.
Are you looking forward to having new Nightmares?
I will admit I did like this show. Even if it was overly dramatic.
Will Fox present programming other than cloned animation and Gordon Ramsay?
Yes, William Shatner is taking celebs into “space!” 😄
I read “cloned animation of Gordon Ramsay” and 10/10 would watch that! :)
This is my favorite Ramsey show so I’m excited. 24 hours wasn’t as good.
I love this show! loved Hotel Hell even more though and wish that could come back.
Well if I have to lose Fantasy Island, I’ll take a reboot of Kitchen Nightmares as a consolation.
We’ve been watching Tabatha’s Salon Takeover on Twist in the mornings and as much as I loathe reboots of everything under the sun, Tabatha coming back would be fun.
Bit of a Ramsay latecomer, working my way through his catalog on Hulu lately so I’ll check out this revival. Still hoping for a couple necros from the NBC Universal family, namely NBC’s Songland and SyFy’s Face Off.
No doubt that this is a result of the writer’s strike. Wonder what they are paying Ramsey to do this again.
I expect more reality shows and game shows to appear due to the strike. Wonder what else can be resurrected.
YES! This is the best TV news I’ve heard in YEARS!
