It's been five years since Alton Brown's much-beloved Good Eats went off the air. It ran from 1999 through 2012, mostly on the Food Network. And despite providing more than a decade's worth of shows, his fans are rabid and are demanding more than the 250-plus episodes already available.
Over the long weekend, Brown made dreams come true. He announced the show is coming back during a panel dubbed "Good Eats ... the Panel" at Dragon Con in Atlanta. (All of Good Eats was shot in Atlanta.) The new half-hour show will be called Return of the Eats, and it will air on the Food Network starting in 2018. During the panel, Brown joked the channel will have to "cut Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives down to seven-and-a-half hours per block."
