‘Restaurant: Impossible’ returns to Food Network after two year break

Food Network is once again airing new episodes of “Restaurant: Impossible.”

The reality show follows Robert Irvine as he and a team redo a failing restaurant — including an interior redesign and overhaul of the menu.

The show hasn’t had new episodes produced in two years, mainly due to Irvine’s deal to do talk show on The CW that was canceled after two seasons.

Irvine once again returned for new episodes in 2020 produced as the restaurant industry began to be hit by coronavirus restrictions and shutdowns. 

Restaurants affected by the coronavirus pandemic can use contactless menus as a way to reduce touchpoints and help avoid the spread of COVID-19.
