LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Good news for Gordon Ramsay fans: Fox has ordered another season of "Kitchen Nightmares" in which the internationally known chef gives tough-love makeovers to restaurants.

The Brit remake wrapped its second season in January.

The network also is expected to announce shortly that Ramsay's other series, "Hell's Kitchen," will return for a new season this summer. "Kitchen" recently shot back-to-back fifth and sixth seasons. Rather than continuing to parcel out the show one season per year, Fox will take the unprecedented step of airing two seasons back to back.

Combined with the new order of "Nightmares," there's a good chance fresh episodes of Ramsay's reality fare will continue airing regularly on the network through the end of next year.

"Hell's Kitchen" is currently airing on Thursday night and holding up well under the pressure of the most competitive time period on television.
