Tom and Padma of "Top Chef"
With its ninth installment, mostly set Deep in the Heart of Texas, coming to an end, "Top Chef
" has been renewed for a 10th season.
formally announced the "Top Chef" renewal
on Thursday (Feb. 2), while also opening casting calls for the upcoming season, starting later this month in New York City.
Although this current season hasn't been warmly received, "Top Chef" has been one of the most acclaimed shows within its genre, even winning the Outstanding Reality - Competition Program Emmy in 2010, temporarily halting the "Amazing Race" dominance over that category.
"Top Chef" and Bravo have yet to announce the location for the 10th season and whether or not that location will be pimped as heavily as Texas has been promoted this season.
