Hell’s Kitchen Season 21 Release Date: When Is It?
Fox Hell’s Kitchen currently has twenty seasons in total and an overall 314 list of episodes published. The twentieth season was launched on May 31, 2021, and concluded on September 13, 2021.
The last season scored a 0.62 rating based on the 18-49 demographic and accumulated 2.49 million spectators which saw a decline by 16 per cent and decreased by 7 per cent viewership as compared to the nineteenth season. However, these ratings didn’t affect the show’s renewal for the next instalment and henceforth, Fox has already renewed Hell’s Kitchen for season 20.
The casting application began last year for the new batch of contestants and it asserted that shooting is scheduled to commence from January 2022 or March 2022. As of now, it’s not known if filming is taking place since there are no updates.
Coming back to the release date, if shooting begins in March, production will end by May which means new episodes will arrive by the summer of 2022 at the earliest.
The Cast of Hell’s Kitchen Season 21: Who Will Be In It?
The winner of Hell’s Kitchen season 20 was won by 23-year-old Trenton Garvey and the runner up was bagged by Megan Gill, also 23 years old. In the last season, all the contestants were aged twenty-four years of age or younger.
The competition cooking show will be back with 18 aspiring chefs from across the nation. Each contestant will be fighting for the title to be the next Hell’s Kitchen victor. The ultimate winner also gets a hefty amount of $250,000 and many other career opportunities.
Chef Gordon Ramsay will return as a host, head chef and mentor in the next season to torture the new batch of contestants.
