After what has felt like years of rumors, then subtle hints on social media, and finally an official announcement, Alton Brown debuted the reboot of his cult-favorite cooking show Good Eats last fall. Earlier today, he revealed the premiere date for the show’s second season.

Last September, Brown teased Good Eats: Reloaded with a trailer, which promised more of his signature cooking hacks, and deep dives into food science. But would Good Eats be back for the long haul, or was this just a limited run? On Sunday, we got an answer: In a Facebook post, Brown announced that the show, which he called Good Eats: The Return, would indeed be coming back for a new season.

His fans were jubilant, commenting on the post “Thank goodness,” and “Awesome news!” Another fan weighed in, writing that Brown inspired her husband to get his culinary degree, while another well-wisher said that Good Eats helped her learn how to cook after her divorce.

As promised, Brown posted a video to Facebook today dishing out all the pertinent details: The new season of Good Eats will premiere on the Cooking Channel on Sunday, August 25, at 10 p.m. EST. Brown made the announcement from the set of the show, and encouraged everyone watching to start planning their viewing parties, because he’ll be having one too. He’ll even be live on social media, presumably commenting on the premiere in real time, so you’ll be able to actually watch right alongside the man himself.

This is perfect timing, actually: As you’re mourning the last days of summer, sunshine, and beach days, a new run of Good Eats episodes will give you a good excuse to get in the kitchen and learn a few new cooking techniques. He hasn’t revealed what we can look forward to in the new episodes, but with basically infinite cooking hacks out there that he has to tackle, you can bet there’s still a lot to learn from Alton Brown.
