The newest season of MasterChef is back in production. The tenth season of Fox’s popular cooking show had finished airing in September 2019 and fans were eagerly waiting for the next season. Filming for the eleventh season began in March but had to be shut down due to the COVID-19 lockdown. Ten of the eighteen episodes had already been filmed when the lockdown started. Producers of Masterchef reported that filming had begun again on October 26th.
The producers have also revealed that the cast and crew of the show are strictly following COVID-19 safety measures and optimizing the situation.
The behind-the-scenes team responsible for the culinary procedures is taking additional precautions by wearing gloves, goggles and face shields. The viewers might see some changes in the production and style of the challenges in the show because of these precautions.
Masterchef USA is based on the British series MasterChef which aired on BBC. The contestants are tested based on their cooking skills, team effort, under-pressure performance and ability to work with mystery elements.
Of course, the main attraction of the show, Gordon Ramsay, will be back in the eleventh season. Ramsay, Joe Bastianich and Aaron Sanchez are returning as the judges of season eleven.
Fox has not yet announced the date of release of the MasterChef Season Eleven.
Meanwhile, catch up on the previous seasons of MasterChef – all ten of them are available to stream on Hulu.
