Fox has decided to dole out super-sized Hell's Kitchen episodes this summer.
The network has announced that Hell's Kitchen's seventh season will premiere with a two-hour episode on Thursday, June 7 at 8PM ET/PT and will continue to air two-hour episodes throughout its broadcast run.
Hell's Kitchen's seventh season filmed back-to-back with the show's sixth season, which premiered in July 2009 was won by Dave Levey.
Fox ordered both of those installments as part of an agreement it struck with Gordon Ramsay in September 2008 that also Kitchen Nightmares' currently airing third season and the live holiday special Gordon Ramsay: Cookalong Live.
Fox subsequently renewedHell's Kitchen for an eighth season and also orderedMasterchef -- a new culinary competition series that will feature Ramsay overseeing a group of wannabe chefs with no food industry experience who are trying to take their kitchen hobby to a professional level.
