Fox announced today that cooking competition MasterChef has been renewed for a third season. The summer series crowned its second winner this past August, awarding $250,000 to Jennifer Behm, who beat out 37 other competitors who made it past the audition rounds.

No return date has been announced for Season 3, but casting calls are scheduled to start later this month in Los Angeles.
