Bobby Flay and Discovery’s Food Network have reached an agreement on a new three-year contract, a deal that comes about six weeks after negotiations stalled because the sides were too far apart on financial terms.

The celebrity chef, restaurateur and author has set an exclusive pact that will keep him in the Discovery family through the middle of the decade and up to his 30th on-air anniversary with the cabler.

The new contract also expands the scope of content opportunities available to Flay’s Rock Shrimp Productions, which produces most of his shows for Food Network. And the wide-ranging deal comes just as Discovery is poised to grow significantly through its pending merger with WarnerMedia.

Legendary chef Bobby Flay and the Food Network are set to part ways after 27 years, Variety’s Cynthia Littleton reported on Thursday.

Flay and the network were reportedly in the middle of contract negotiations, ahead of the expiration of his current three-year deal later this year, and sources told the publication the network ended the talks. Variety reported that a source close to the network cited disagreements over financial terms as reasoning behind the TV giant wanting to cut ties. Food Network didn’t immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

When reached for comment by Variety, Flay’s representatives at WME reportedly declined and cited a “policy of not commenting on active negotiations.” WME did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

Chef and TV superstar Bobby Flay surprised everyone by opening Bobby’s Burgers, his twist on a fast-casual, American eatery, inside the Forum Food Hall at Caesars Palace. The restaurant takes over the former Smashburger space at the food court with burgers inspired by his travels around the country, fries, and shakes.

The burgers feature traditional ingredients such as bacon and cheese on the Palace Classic Burger and the Bobby Blue + Bacon Burger. A Crunchburger comes topped with cheese and chips; the Nacho Burger is made with queso, tomato salsa and pickled jalapeños; and the BBQ Smokehouse Burger comes with bacon, crispy onion, chipotle barbecue sauce, and American cheese. The outlet also has Bobby’s Veggie Burger with barbecue mushrooms, chickpeas, quinoa, lettuce, and tomato, or a fried chicken sandwich.
