NBC is renewing Electus’s Food Fighters for a second season, with new episodes returning in summer 2015.


Hosted by Adam Richman, the culinary battle – which pits amateur cooks against professional chefs – generated strong viewer interest in its first season last summer, delivering the biggest regularly scheduled week one to week-two gain in adults 18 to 49 rating for any new series on the Big 4 networks in more than two years.

During its summer 2014 run, Food Fighters delivered the biggest regularly scheduled week one to week two gain among adults 18 to 49 for any new series on the Big 4 networks in more than two years.

For the summer, NBC has also picked up the comedy Welcome to Sweden for a second season, as well as the unscripted Last Comic Standing, American Ninja Warrior and America's Got Talent.

Electus International will also handle the international rollout of the show.
