No more yelling in the kitchen! After a decade of rehabbing restaurants for U.S. and British television, the fiery celebrity chef announced on his blog on June 23 that his original show is coming to an end.

To all you struggling restaurants across America and the U.K. — you’re officially on your own. Gordon Ramsay took to his blog on June 23 to make the sad announcement that his long-running, multi-country reality drama, Kitchen Nightmares, will be wrapping up after a few more episodes.

‘Kitchen Nightmares’ Ending After 10 Years

“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,” Gordon wrote in a short but sweet post on his website.

Kitchen Nightmares, which showed Gordon going around to restaurants and rehabilitating them (and their owners), premiered in the U.K. in 2004. Three years later, Fox launched an American version of the show. Introducing Gordon’s one-of-a-kind rampant temper to the world, the show had a few high points, like when the chef visited Amy’s Baking Company in Scottsdale, Ariz. The bakery’s over-the-top owners — mixed with Gordon’s personality — came together to produce a slew of amazing internet memes.

“This was the show that really propelled my TV career,” Gordon wrote. “I’m glad I’ve been able to entertain and hopefully help a few people along the way.”

Fox has one more Kitchen Nightmares episode to air, and Gordon is filming four more episodes of the show for Channel 4 in the U.K.

But don’t worry, guys, he’s not really going anywhere. Fox still has Gordon’s franchises Hell’s KitchenHotel Hell, MasterChef, and MasterChef Junior on their docket.

Kitchen Nightmares is WAY better than HELL’S KITCHEN – which hasn’t done an innovative thing since it was launched. It’s the same dishes (scallops and risotto and Wellingtons), and same teams (Men vs Women) every season. We gave up 3 seasons ago. If Gordon would spice that show up a bit instead of just doing the EXACT SAME THING – it would be interesting. He needs to take a lesson from SURVIVOR, which constantly adds new wrinkles.

Good! Cause Gordon Ramsay Treats His Contestants Like Dogs In All Of His Shows But In His Other Show Hell’s Kitchen, He Kicked Two My Female Friends Amanda and Jessica Out Of The Show Without An Apology! Gordon Ramsay, You’re Mean!

I don’t think Gordon is mean in everyday life. He has to fine the right person for the jobs. Because the people who hires him pay a lot of money to help these people. He puts pressure on people cause that’s probably how the job will be and his reputation is on the line! Maybe he could be a little softer but that who he is and I don’tthink everybody has a problem with his behavior!
