FOX announced today that it has ordered up a second season of the summer sizzler HELL’S KITCHEN, a culinary boot camp that features a group of aspiring restaurateurs overseen by world-renowned but terrifying chef Gordon Ramsay. Last Monday’s season finale, in which contestant Michael Wray was crowned Head Chef, delivered the show’s highest ratings ever among key demos, as well as Total Viewers.
Throughout its run, HELL’S KITCHEN ranked No. 1 in its time period among Adults 18-49, Adults 18-34 and Teens and experienced gains at the half-hour among key demos, including +12% among Adults 18-49 and +10% among Total Viewers. Casting information for Season 2 will be available at fox.com.
HELL’S KITCHEN is produced by Granada America and A. Smith & Co. Paul Jackson, Arthur Smith and Kent Weed serve as executive producers.
