Nordic trio put more MasterChef on menu

TV4 airs MasterChef in Sweden

Nordic broadcasters including Sweden’s TV4, TVNorge in Norway and Finland’s MTV3 have lined up new episodes of MasterChef and its spin-offs from Endemol Shine Nordics.

TV4 has commissioned an 11th seaon of MasterChef, set to broadcast in 2021, as well as Sweden’s first version of MasterChef All Stars and a seventh run of MasterChef Junior, which will air later this year.

The channel has also ordered the MasterChef spin-off After Hours, which gives eliminated contestants the opportunity to battle it out in front of one judge straight after the main competition.

In Norway, the culinary format has been picked up by Discovery’s TVNorge. Discovery has also ordered a new digital extension, MasterChef Leftovers (20×15’), for it’s VoD service D-Play, which will focus on cooking with the food left over from the challenges in the main series.

MTV3 in Finland has commissioned its first season of MasterChef: The Professionals, which is due to air later this year.

Karin Stjärne, CEO Endemol Shine Nordics, said: “There is a real passion for MasterChef in the Nordics which is demonstrated by such strong ratings across the region. The MasterChef brand continues to grow from strength to strength and it’s fantastic to see such a broad range of commissions of both the main series and the hugely popular spin-offs.”

Created by Franc Roddam, the MasterChef format and finished programmes are represented internationally by Endemol Shine Group.
