If you’ve been asking yourself, “Where can I watch Hell’s Kitchen?”, here’s everything you need to know.

However, for anyone relatively new to the Hell’s Kitchen experience, there’s a whole lot more to enjoy than series 19.
All other seasons of the hit cooking show are currently available to stream with an Amazon Prime subscription. This means that you can relieve all of the show’s classic moments, wherever you might be, at the touch of a button.
Fans can also enjoy the show on smaller streaming services such as Tubi. There are also DVD versions of the first 14 seasons available, dubbed “Hell’s Kitchen: Raw & Uncensored”.
Wherever and whenever you decide to catch up, rest assured that there are plenty of options on the table.

How can I watch Hell’s Kitchen in the UK
When it comes to TV, the United States is usually well ahead of the pack. However, where Hell’s Kitchen is concerned, the UK has a rare advantage.
Series 19 of the show has in fact already been broadcast in Britain, appearing on ITV back in October 2020.
The fact that the new series has actually been available on some platforms for some time may explain why viewing figures in the US have been comparatively low.
This year, the season premiere was watched by a fairly modest 2.78 million people. This represents a slight decline from 2.98 million in 2019, which was, in turn, down from 3.02 million the year before.
It’s difficult to say what effect, if any, this discrepancy in release dates may have had. Nonetheless, if the trend continues, it could mean bad news for Hell’s Kitchen’s future.

Will there be a Hell’s Kitchen series 20?
Despite the decline in viewing figures, fans can look forward to at least one more season of the iconic cooking show.
Although the broadcast date is yet to be determined, both series 19 and 20 were recorded back to back. This should mean that the new series will drop in the UK in October 2021.
Excitingly, filming for each series took place in the new Las Vegas location. This means that there will be plenty of exciting new scenery and challengers for audiences and competitors to sink their teeth into.
Whenever season 20 does drop, we’re certainly going to have a feast to look forward to.

Who are the series 19 contestants?
18 cooks took part in the Hell’s Kitchen competition for series 19.
At the start of the series, Amber Lancaster, Brittani Ratcliffe, Fabiola Fuentes, Jordan Savell, Kori Sutton, Lauren Lawless, Mary Lou Davis, Nicole Hanna and Syann Williams represented the Red Team.
Meanwhile, the Blue Team featured Adam Pawlak, Cody Candelario, Declan Horgan, Drew Tingley, Eliott Sanchez, Josh Oakley, Kenneth McDuffie, Marc Quinones and Peter Martinez.
Needless to say, it didn’t end well for everyone.
