My Kitchen Rules was a huge hit for Channel Seven, and it dominated the ratings in the 10 years that it aired, particularly at the beginning.

Celebrity chefs Pete Evans and Manu Feildel were at the helm and became household names in Australia thanks to the success of show.

Colin Fassnidge was also involved as a recurring judge before he later became a permanent fixture.

However, as the show wore on, ratings began to slide, leading to Channel Seven to press the pause button on the reality favourite after its 2020 Fans vs Faves season.

However, the show is officially being revived, with the new My Kitchen Rules coming to screens in 2022.

The cooking show will feature all new judges who will be announced soon, a new batch of contestants, and “all the fun and food that made it a huge hit for so many years”.

“Australia’s favourite food show will go back to the original recipe and back into the contestants’ kitchens, with state competing against state,” Seven stated.

But that’s not all that’s coming, as SAS Australia is coming back for the new year and along with it are some fresh faces. And no we’re not talking about the cast.

Chief Instructor Ant Middleton and DS Ollie Ollerton will be returning, but they’ll be joined by two new DS.

Retired US Navy SEAL Clint Emerson and former British Special Forces soldier Dean Stott, who is also Prince Harry’s former military training partner, will star alongside them in the 2022 season.

The new format will certainly bring about a different dynamic for the show, and we’ll just have to stay tuned to learn more.
