Gordon Ramsay will soon bring his "Kitchen Nightmares" show to an end after 10 years on the air.

The celebrity chef made the announcement Monday on his blog.

"I'm currently filming four new episodes, Costa Del Nightmares, for Channel 4 which will be my last. I've had a phenomenal 10 years making 123 episodes, 12 seasons, shot across 2 continents, watched by tens of millions of people, and sold to over 150 countries. It’s been a blast but it's time to call it a day," he wrote.

The show premiered in the United Kingdom in 2004, and it arrived on U.S. shores in 2007 as part of the Fox lineup. Similar to his other Fox shows — "Hell's Kitchen," "MasterChef," and "Hotel Hell" — "Kitchen Nightmares" focused on teaching cooking techniques and sought out struggling restaurants to reinvigorate.

Ramsay thanked everyone who worked on the show, including the restaurant owners he encountered throughout the course of the show. He called out a few memorable restaurants, including Amy's Baking Company. After their unflattering episode aired, the owners of the restaurant got a stern lecture from television therapist Dr. Phil when they tried to use his daytime talkshow to slander Ramsay.

"I've visited over 100 restaurants, meeting and trying to help or in some cases failing to help, some of the most weird and wonderful people," the chef stated. "Of course Amy's Baking Company is a standout along with Bonaparte's but there were good times too; the lovely sisters at La Galleria and Momma Cherri's to name but two."

In bringing the program to a close, Ramsay noted a few fun facts about the long-running show, saying it brought in $37.3 million in ad revenue in 2012-13 — more than any other Friday Fox original series — and episodes sold in 150 countries globally.

He also noted that the show's swear count totaled 10,197 instances of profanity in total — a nod to his trademark temper, which is much beloved by his fans.
