Fans of Iron Chef America will be stoked to hear that the show is coming back. According to Variety, Food Network announced a brand new retooling of the show with culinary mad genius and funny man Alton Brown returning as the host.

The new series will be called Iron Chef Gauntlet and viewers can expect some new twists on the series’ classic format. While the original series featured notable chefs like Bobby Flay, Masaharu Morimoto, and Michael Symon, there’s still no word on who will appear in Gauntlet. Though with Food Network’s extensive talent pool of chefs, it’s safe to say we’ll get some pretty big fish from the culinary waters.

Iron Chef aired for 12 seasons and concluded in 2015. Iron Chef Gauntlet begins production in early 2017.

Here’s hoping Mark Dacascos returns as well. Dude’s a national treasure.
