The return of the idiot sandwich is imminent.
After a decade away from America’s grimiest walk-in fridges, Gordon Ramsay is bringing back his Kitchen Nightmares series.
Deadline confirmed the news of the reboot, which will air on Fox in the US and be produced by Studio Ramsay. The show was originally produced by ITV Studios America (now ITV America) in association with Optomen and A Smith & Co.
Kitchen Nightmares is a reality series which sees Gordon visit failing restaurants across America and spend a week trying to improve them.
The celebrity chef rewrites menus, updates decor and remains inalterably shocked by cooked and raw chicken being stored together despite seeing it in every kitchen he encounters. The series ran for seven seasons and nearly 100 episodes between 2007 and 2014.
After the show wrapped, Ramsay continued his tv career with Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours To Hell and Back, which ran for three seasons on Fox.
A release date for the new series is yet to be confirmed but in the meantime, we recommend a deep dive through clips of the old episodes on YouTube.
Kitchen Nightmares walked so The Bear could run.
