Welcome back to Kitchen Stadium! The original cooking competition show is coming back after a short break. Iron Chef America — in all its dramatically cheesy, nail-biting glory — is being rebooted by Food Network after a short hiatus on the Cooking Channel.The show will still be hosted by nerdy food icon Alton Brown, but will now be called Iron Chef Gauntlet.

Iron Chef Gauntlet will begin production early next year to be premiered in the second quarter of 2017, according to Variety. The new show will offer some twists on the old competition format, but details are scarce.

Previous Iron Chefs include Bobby Flay, Michael Symon, Alex Guarnaschelli, Geoffrey Zakarian, and Masaharu Morimoto. These experienced chefs traditionally face off against challengers to battle for the title of Iron Chef America in different rounds using mystery ingredients or themes. The show usually follows the overly dramatized format of the original Japanese series.
