Kitchen Stadium die-hards, we have breaking news for you. Just this afternoon, Alton Brown sent this tweet, and with only one word and a single hashtag — "Finally. #IronChefGauntlet" — he announced an upcoming series. Here's what we know: Beginning in the spring of the new year, an all-new reboot of the beloved  Iron Chef America is set to roll out. The name of this reimagined competition is Iron Chef Gauntlet, and as Alton hinted with an accompanying photo, he's set to reprise his role as the host and master of ceremonies.
