MasterChef season 12 premiere date confirmed over at Fox

MasterChef season 8 episode 17Have you been wondering when MasterChef season 12 would be premiering over at Fox? Well, wonder no more! Today, the network confirmed premiere dates for a number of their different summer shows, and the cooking competition is going to be coming back in just a month and a half.

For now, the Gordon Ramsay series is going to be premiering on Wednesday, May 25 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern. If you’ve seen the show at any other point over the past few years, you probably know a good bit of what’s coming already. We’re sure that there are a few different twists and turns you’re going to see this go-around, but we don’t get the sense that MasterChef is out to totally reinvent itself at this point. This is a series that knows what it is at this point; because of that, it doesn’t need to fundamentally change much of anything.

As for some other shows on the network’s roster, we’ve got a few different dates for you below. As is the case with MasterChef, all the times below are Eastern.

Sunday, May 1

7:30 – Duncanville season 3

Wednesday, May 18

8:00 – So You Think You Can Dance

For those who missed the news this week, former show star tWitch is going to be a part of a judging panel that also includes JoJo Siwa and Glee alum Matthew Morrison.

Monday, May 23

8:00 – Don’t Forget the Lyrics!

9:00 – Beat Shazam season 5

Tuesday, May 31

8:00 – Lego Masters season 3

9:00 – Fantasy Island season 2

We just hope that some of these shows do incorporate an element of surprise — or, that the ratings for Fantasy Island somehow improve. Want to see a few more scripted shows pop up at some point down the road in the summer. Why not?
