FOX has ordered another season of the hit series “MasterChef,” the network ordered a tenth season of the hit cooking competition with new episodes planned for later this year. This will keep FOX‘s ongoing streak with Gordon Ramsay going into 2019, the Chef already stars on several popular series across the network. The announcement came from FOX, Endemol Shine, and celebrity Chef Gordon Ramsay. According to the announcement, Season 10 of the cooking competition will air during the 2018-2019 season.
Multi-award-winning television producer Natalka Znak has been added as executive producer for Season 10 of the show, which just wrapped its final episode of the season this week. Znak has created some of TV’s biggest hits, including “Hell’s Kitchen,” the international hit format “Love Island” and “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here,” currently in its 14th season in the U.K. Just recently, her production company was behind “Meghan Markle An American Princess,” a two-hour special for FOX; and “Revolution,” an eight-episode physical gameshow for SKY UK and FOX.
During Season 9, “MastereChef” was the top cooking show, averaging 6.4 million multi-platform viewers. During last night’s two-hour season finale, the three remaining home cooks faced their final challenge when they were each asked to prepare a three-course menu for the judges. The home cook with the best overall menu was crowned the winner (but we won’t spoil the fun for you if you haven’t seen it yet).
If you ever wanted to be on the show, now is your chance to try for Season 10. The series will be looking for the next batch of talented, passionate and skilled home cooks to compete for the coveted white apron. For the first time ever, Gordon Ramsay’s very own culinary team will be hitting the road with the casting team, so you can at least meet them if you don’t make it. The open casting calls will be in New York, NY on September 22nd; Chicago, IL on September 22nd; Los Angeles, CA on Saturday, September 29th; and Dallas, TX on September 29th.
