Alton Brown took to Twitter to announce that Food Network is planning yet another Iron Chef America spin-off, this one called Iron Chef Showdown. It will be hosted by none other than Brown himself, which means Mark Dacascos will return as chairman.

 The new series will bring together all of our favorite Iron Chefs including Bobby Flay, Michael Symon, Alex Guarnaschelli, Jose Garces and Stephanie Izard. Former ESPN anchor Jaymee Sire will also join the cast and report on the action directly from the floor.

Die-hard fans can look forward to "more competitors, secret ingredients and over-the-top action," Brown says in his video. The series is expected to air later this year, and we can hardly contain our excitement.
