Fox has ordered an eight-episode third season of MasterChef Junior.
"MasterChef Junior has proven itself to be the little show with a big bite — so big, we've picked it up for a third season," Simon Andreae, Fox's EVP of Alternative Entertainment, said in a statement. "It's incredible to see how unbelievably creative and skilled kids can be in the kitchen — some before they've even learned how to SPELL what they're cooking! We can't wait to meet the talent that our judges discover in the next two cycles."

Gordon Ramsay will return as host and executive producer, along with judges Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot to challenge kids between the ages of 8 and 13 who have extraordinary culinary talent.
Production on Seasons 2 and 3 of MasterChef Junior will begin this spring.
