After five long years and much speculation, Alton Brown is finally giving the people what they want once more with Return of the Eats, a revival of the beloved Food Network segment Good Eats—the mash-up of both education and epicurean adventures that gave birth to the modern-day Brown obsession.
After months of teasing (and years of wishing), Brown confirmed the show will return (with a TBD premiere date) with an announcement this weekend, joking, “We’re getting the band back together!” Brown also reported that the show will run for a half hour on the Food Network but a little longer on the online streaming version.
The original show, which ended in 2012, ran for 252 episodes over 13 years and received much praise and recognition, including a Peabody Award in 2007.
The only downside to the return of Brown’s empire? The half hour Return of the Eats segment will demote Guy Fieri’s glutinous Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives to a mere seven and a half hours a day of programming, Brown joked in his announcement.
