Bravo's Top Chef will wrap up its current season (big, shiny number 11!) on Wednesday, February 5 at 10pm (watch the sneak peek above if you simply must have a taste). Although I don't think anyone was particularly worried that the series wouldn't return to the network's menu, we can now confirm that Top Chef will return for Season 12 this fall, so put down the knives and back away slowly.
Bravo announced the renewal today alongside an open casting call for contestants in a handful of cities across the United States. If you think you can take the heat, plan on traveling to one of the following locales this spring to throw your chef's hat into the ring: Dallas (Tuesday, February 18), Atlanta (Tuesday, February 18), New York (Monday, February 24), Chicago (Monday, February 24), Los Angeles (Monday, March 3).
Details on Season 12's location, theme, judges, etc. are not yet available.
Are you excited for more Top Chef? And if you've been watching the current season, who do you think is going to win?
