Is Gordon Ramsay getting ready to end his TV empire? While it is too early to say that, we can at least confirm now that the celebrity chef will be ceasing one of his most-popular shows in “Kitchen Nightmares.”
In a statement on his official website, Ramsay confirmed that the end of the show both in the United Kingdom and in America is going to be coming up soon. He also went through what some of his favorites sights on the show were, including a few notorious spots that you may very well remember:
“I’m currently filming 4 new episodes, Costa Del Nightmares, for [the UK’s] Channel 4, which will be my last … I’ve had a phenomenal 10 years making 123 episodes, 12 seasons, shot across 2 continents, watched by tens of millions of people and sold to over 150 countries. It’s been a blast but it’s time to call it a day.
“During this time, I’ve visited over 100 restaurants, meeting and trying to help or in some cases failing to help, some of the most weird and wonderful people. Of course Amy’s Baking Company is a standout along with Bonaparte’s but there were good times too; the lovely sisters at La Galleria and Momma Cherri’s to name but two.”
In the end, it feels like this is the right time for this series to say goodbye … at least for now. It felt like too obvious a publicity ploy recently in order to ensure that restaurants could get on TV. This feels like something that should go away for around five years or so, and it should come back later when it could feel fresh again.
