Shaw Media has ordered a third serving of Chopped Canada for Food Network Canada.

The latest cycle of 26 new episodes will once again be produced by Paperny Enteratinment, for a 2016 debut.

The Chopped franchise was originated by Bunim/Murray Productions for Food Network U.S.

Paperny acquired the Chopped cooking competition format from Scripps Network, and Food Network Canada picked up the local version.

Season three will include a first-time Chopped Canada teen competition, where 16 young chefs will battle over five episodes to win $20,000.

The Chopped Canada series pits four chefs against one another to earn $10,000 in a series of knock-out rounds before one chef is left standing in front of their chopping board and crowned champion.
