New episodes of ‘Restaurant: Impossible’ Thursdays, as Irvine continues mission helping struggling restaurant owners

World-class chef and host of the long-running hit series “Restaurant: Impossible,” Robert Irvine returns with new episodes of fan-favorite “Dinner: Impossible,” premiering Thursday, March 11 (10 p.m. ET/PT), on Food Network.

In each seemingly impossible mission, Irvine and his team of sous chefs are challenged to overcome extraordinary obstacles and conditions that push him to his physical and mental limits, as he must prepare and serve delicious meals to groups of hungry and expecting guests before his allotted time runs out.

Through four, hour-long episodes, Irvine battles the elements while using limited resources to cook against the clock. From the majestic and historic island of Oahu, Hawaii, to the streets of Sin City, and an abandoned mining town in Cerro Gordo, California, he will attempt to rise to the challenge and prove that dinner is possible.

Viewers can also stream the return of “Dinner: Impossible” on discovery+, with new episodes available weekly beginning March 11.

“We are so excited to bring ‘Dinner: Impossible’ to a new generation of fans, upping the ante with new missions that blend edge-of-your-seat action and compelling emotion that teeter on the impossible, as Robert is pushed to the limit and beyond,” said Courtney White, president of Food Network. “Robert Irvine has never met a challenge he won’t accept, and it’s his lunch pail work ethic and devotion to helping people in need that continue to make him a must-watch on Food Network.”

“ ‘Dinner: Impossible’ wasn’t just my first-ever television show and the way American audiences were introduced to me, it was where I met my wife, Gail. Naturally, the show has always held a special place in my heart,” Irvine said. “Over the years, it’s been incredibly gratifying to learn that it meant so much to the fans, too. I’m so proud to announce we are coming back, and it is going to be bigger and better than ever, with breathtaking locales, production that is cinematic, and challenges that are downright diabolical.”

In the premiere, Irvine is whisked away on a helicopter for his first mission in Oahu, Hawaii – to make a feast without a kitchen for local residents using only produce and proteins he can gather on the legendary Kualoa Ranch. Irvine and his team take on the weather as they harvest their ingredients to pull off the impossible.

In another episode in Hawaii, Irvine’s mission is to prepare a five-star dinner for soldiers of the historic 25th Infantry Division to celebrate their 79th anniversary. Using only a mobile army field kitchen and meal rations, he must create a high-end dinner in just seven hours; but in order to earn more ingredients, Irvine must conquer a series of demanding, military-style challenges.

While in Las Vegas, Irvine must cater three wedding receptions in only six hours – and don’t miss as he travels to an abandoned mining town in Cerro Gordo, California, to prepare a meal for a group of paranormal enthusiasts – including Amy Bruni and Adam Berry from Travel Channel’s “Kindred Spirits” – that would even please the local spirits that continue to haunt the property.

A culinary staple of Food Network, Irvine continues his quest to help failing restaurants across the country in “Restaurant: Impossible,” with new episodes beginning Thursday, March 11 (9 p.m. ET/PT), on Food Network. In each episode, Irvine visits struggling restaurant owners to help them turn around their fortunes in just two days.

Viewers can catch up on previous episodes on discovery+.
