Listen up, chefs: FOX has ordered another season of "MasterChef."

Ahead of the 12th season finale of Gordon Ramsay’s fan-favorite cooking competition, FOX has renewed the series for a 13th season. And perhaps the network recognizes that one shouldn’t fiddle with a perfect recipe, because acclaimed chef Aarón Sanchez and restauranteur extraordinaire Joe Bastianich will be returning alongside Ramsay as judges.

The renewal is served with a side of casting announcement: a new season means a new crop of chefs, and "MasterChef" is on the lookout for "talented amateur cooks from all types of backgrounds and with a range of cooking styles," per a press release. Visit for more information, but please note: this isn’t "MasterChef Junior," so all aspiring apron-owners must be 18 years old or older as of January 1, 2023.

Before a new crop of chefs shows up, the show’s buzzy "Back to Win" season must choose a winner. The season 12 finale airs Wednesday, Sept. 14 at 8 p.m. EST. Judging panel alumna Christina Tosi returns as "the three remaining chefs rush against the clock to complete their final three entrees and whip up a gourmet dessert with the help of Tosi."
