Bravo has announced it has renewed Top Chef for a fifteenth season, and casting calls for the reality culinary competition's new edition are already underway.
Top Chef's fifteenth-season casting calls kicked off Sunday, January 29 in Chicago, IL, and will continue through February 6 with additional stops in Portland, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Dallas, New York, and New Orleans.
These chef meet and greets take place by appointment at restaurants of show alumni and friends -- including Season 9 finalist Sarah Grueneberg, Season 12 finalist Gregory Gourdet, and Top Chef Masters finalist Traci Des Jardins.
Similar to previous seasons, Top Chef's upcoming season will continue to feature a group of "cheftestants" competing for a grand prize to help them open their own restaurant.
The current edition of Top Chef, filmed in Charleston, SC, airs Thursday nights at 9pm ET/PT on Bravo.
Top Chef is produced by Magical Elves and executive produced by Dan Cutforth, Jane Lipsitz, Doneen Arquines and Casey Kriley. About The Author:Elizabeth Kwiatkowski
