Before launching into a brand new version of his hit Food Network show Good Eats, food-science guru Alton Brown has been quietly remixing 13 episodes of the series that made him a star two decades ago. Brown first announced this new project, dubbed Good Eats: Reloaded, back in July. And now, the TV host has finally revealed some details about the series through his preferred method of communicating with fans: a Twitter Q & A.
I’m revisiting the Good Eats library and renovating some classic episodes by adding new scenes, new science and new recipes. The result: Good Eats: Reloaded. Premieres October 15 at 9pm ET on @cookingchannel. #GoodEatsReloaded pic.twitter.com/v13YaH0pkn— Alton Brown (@altonbrown) September 17, 2018
The big news is that Good Eats: Reloaded actually won’t be landing on the Food Network, but rather its sister station the Cooking Channel, on October 15 at 9 p.m. On Twitter, Brown explains that he’s “taking care of some unfinished business first by renovating classic episodes,” because he “couldn’t write new shows without making a few repairs to some classic (old) episodes.” The TV host also hints that his popular yeast puppets will make a return, and that the pilot is one of the episodes that’s getting reworked. And Brown promises that he won’t be the only familiar face participating in the redux version of the show:
The new series will also, apparently, feature a brand new fondue recipe, and, according to a Cooking Channel statement about the show, “fans can also expect cameras where they ought not be.”
Alton has yet to announce a release date or any major details about the proper Good Eats reboot — officially dubbed Return of the Eats — but it sounds like the Food Network show won’t see the light of day till 2019. Stay tuned for updates on all things Good Eats as more intel becomes available.
