When Gordon Ramsay decided to shut down Kitchen Nightmares, we were saddened that the show that had cemented his legacy was ending. It turns out we weren’t the only ones, as Chef Ramsay just revealed he regrets ending Kitchen Nightmares as well. We also now know that it’ll be back in one way or another.
According to the New York Daily News, Gordon revealed that he had originally left the show because he kept getting fed up with the criticism. Several restaurants featured on Kitchen Nightmares fell back into trouble, something Ramsay attributes to owners returning to their old ways.
“I got fed up with Kitchen Nightmares because I was getting s–t,” Ramsay claimed. “So I woke up one morning and I thought ‘F–k it, I’m done.’ ”
That happened three years ago, and everyone misses the show so much that old clips still go viral today. While he regrets ending Kitchen Nightmares, Ramsay also hinted at a new project that channels the old show’s spirit.
“The biggest demand over the last four years is for Kitchen Nightmares (to come back) and what I am putting together is a return of something magical.”
Ramsay claims that the series is “along the lines” of Kitchen Nightmares but way better. Ramsay and Fox, the network that airs his shows, didn’t provide any more detail than that.
FOX Television Group did confirm to the NY Daily News that a new show will be on air in the near future. That means we’ll get more of the cursing, meltdowns, feel good endings, and drama that made Chef Ramsay so popular originally.
We can’t wait to watch it all unfold when this new show airs on TV soon. Hopefully, it’ll generate a flurry of new clips we can all obsess and enjoy.
