Is There ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ Season 19 Or Is It Cancelled?

Depending on who you are, when you hear the name, ‘Hell’s Kitchen’, you are either likely to think of the Marvel comic book show, Daredevil, or the Gordon Ramsay’s Fox reality competition TV series, where several chefs compete for a chance win the $250,000 prize money as well as work in a reputable restaurant. If you are the latter, then you are probably wondering if Hell’s Kitchen will be returning for season 19 after it completed its 18th season in February 2019.

Since Hell’s Kitchen began airing on American television, the American audience has gotten a chance to enjoy two of its favorite things, reality television, and Gordon Ramsay screaming at grown people. With questions raised over the possibility of a cancellation of the show, we answer everything you need to know about the 19th season of Hell’s Kitchen.

Is There a Hell’s Kitchen Season 19?

In a world where TV bosses make decisions on what shows stay on TV and which one gets canceled based on economic decisions, fans who emotionally invest in a show can be up for a rollercoaster ride wondering if their favorite show is coming back on television, and even after 18 seasons, that is still a legitimate fear for fans of Hell’s Kitchen.

Thankfully, the good news is there will be a season 19 of Hell’s Kitchen. The show was renewed for a 19th season in February 2019 as well as a 20th season, so fans can expect to see Gordon Ramsay in his element for at least two more seasons.

The show was renewed following the continued success of the show as one of the most followed shows on television, particularly in the cooking show category. According to season 18’s record, the season premiere was watched by 2.98 million people while the finale was seen by 3.17 million viewers. With an expected season average of 2.5 million viewers, Gordon Ramsay’s masterpiece continues to provide enough reason for TV bosses to keep it on air and for fans to keep showing up.

The just-concluded season, which was a Rookies vs Veterans season, was won by Ariel Contreras-Fox, who defeated 16 other contestants, including Mia Castro, who finished as runner up. She turned down her prize as an executive chef of Hell’s Kitchen Restaurant in Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, choosing to return to her role as a concept executive chef for Dos Caminos instead.

What We Know So Far

Hell's Kitchen season 19

Here is the not so good part of the good news. While Hell’s Kitchen is expected to return for season 19, it will not be showing up until 2020, so fans might have to wait a while before watching Gordon Ramsay cook on the show.

No official airdate has been announced by the network, but considering the last three seasons have premiered in September, season 19 of Hell’s Kitchen might return to the air in that time period. However, although it hasn’t been officially confirmed by the network, the 19th season of the show has been recorded.

The show won’t be returning to the air until 2020 because Fox, the network hosting the show, has taken on WWE Smackdown Live, which will begin airing on October 4, during Hell’s Kitchen’s regular time slot.

Also, we know that the 19th season of Hell’s Kitchen will be filmed in Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant, Hell’s Kitchen Restaurant in Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. Previous seasons have been filmed in Los Angeles, on studio lots in Hollywood.

Another noteworthy information to remember about season 19 of Hell’s Kitchen is the replacement of Sous Chef Jocky by Jay Santos, who finished as runner-up in the seventh season of the show, losing to Holli Ugalde. He will be replacing Jocky as the blue team’s sous chef for the 19th and 20th seasons.

A full list of expected celebrities and chefs as judges for season 19 is yet to be released but so far, we know that Laurent Tourondel, Justene Alpert, and Apolo Ohno will all be appearing as a judge on the show.

As for the number of contestants expected to appear in season 19 of Hell’s Kitchen, fans are likely to see a continuation of the total of 16 chefs that appeared in the 18th season, with a possible additional two contestants if the show departs from the tradition of the past two seasons.
