Fox has announced a 12th season renewal for veteran cooking competition series “MasterChef”, featuring chef Gordon Ramsay, chef Aarón Sánchez and restaurateur Joe Bastianich. The series is based on the British BBC series of the same name and takes place in the “MasterChef soundstage located in Los Angeles.

“Obviously, Gordon is a good friend and, given the recent launch of Studio Ramsay Global, an important part of Fox’s programming and growth strategy,” said Rob Wade, President of Alternative Entertainment and Specials, Fox Entertainment.  “’Masterchef’, Gordon, Aarón and Joe, and our fantastic partners at ESNA, have been vital to FOX’s DNA.  Even in its eleventh season, this show continues to impress by sustaining Fox’s success on Wednesdays this summer.  We anticipate this momentum to continue next year when MASTERCHEF returns for a much deserved Season 12.”

“Masterchef” is produced by Endemol Shine North America and One Potato Two Potato, and is based on a format created by Franc Roddam. Elisabeth Murdoch, Natalka Znak, Danny Schrader, Gordon Ramsay, Pat Llewellyn, Ben Adler, Sharon Levy, DJ Nurre and Shyam Balsé serve as executive producers.
