Bravo has announced that Top Chef is coming back for an 18th season next year. The veteran cooking competition continues to be a solid performer for the cable network, drawing a consistent audience that tunes in year after year.

The culinary series is heading to Portland, Oregon for the first time, where a new group of talented chefs will be challenged in different parts of the city including downtown, the scenic coast, and wine country.

Look for Season 18 of Top Chef in 2021, where host Padma Lakshmi will be joined by head judge Tom Colicchio and judge Gail Simmons to crown the next winner.
