While the first two seasons of Hell’s Kitchen aired in the summer, FOX is moving the third season up to the spring.
The show will debut this March, The Futon Critic reports, and “will take over for the departing ‘The O.C.’”
Perhaps more surprising is that FOX plans to air the show on Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET. There, it will air opposite Grey’s Anatomy, CSI, and 30 Rock.
The show cast for chefs last fall. Production, according to the application, could take as much as six weeks, but there’s no word yet on when filming will start, or if it already has begun.
