Fox announced today that Hell's Kitchen has been renewed for Seasons 17 and 18. The competitive culinary series is currently gearing up for its Season 16 premiere, which takes place later this month on Friday, September 23, marking only the third time the show has premiered in September as part of the network's fall lineup.

On the air for over a decade, Hell's Kitchen follows aspiring restaurateurs competing in a fervent culinary academy where they must demonstrate endurance and skill in order to make it to the end and receive a potentially-life-changing grand prize. The series has remained a reliable performer for the network over the years, managing to draw consistent viewership whether airing in-season, mid-season, or during the summer.
