The New Great British Baking Show Is Coming to Netflix

Three new seasons of the Great British Baking Show will be available in the U.S., only on Netflix.

Grab your British-to-English baking dictionary. Starting on August 31, Netflix is serving up new episodes of the Great British Baking Show!

Expect to see a dozen amateur bakers compete to be crowned by a panel of distinguished judges—but in the upcoming seasons, we’ll have some changes too.

Two new hosts and one new judge

Yes, the bakers will compete in 10 increasingly difficult challenges and seek to impress the judges with beautifully crafted cakes, breads and other lovely bakes. But hosting duties will be performed by Sandi Tolksvig, a British-Danish comedian and game-show host, along with comedian Noel Fielding, whose patter with Tolksvig should prove amusing and fresh.

Paul Hollywood, who you already know and love, resumes his judging duties, but he’ll be joined by Prue Leith. Leith replaces Mary Berry (she’s busy working on her iconic TV show, Classic Mary Berry).

New seasons, new special episodes

You already know the new season is kicking off on August 31, but 10 more new episodes will show up on Netflix in both 2018 and 2019. You’ll also be able to catch special holiday-themed episodes during the holiday season in 2018, 2019 and 2020.

If you miss Mary Berry

Mary’s not in the new lineup, but there’s plenty of opportunity to catch her in earlier seasons. Netflix is streaming the Great British Bake-Off‘s U.K. seasons 4 through 7 (in the U.S., this would be collections 1 through 4). You can also catch U.K. season 3, which Netflix is repackaging and streaming as The Great British Baking Show: The Beginnings.

Netflix’s “serving suggestion”

Stateside, the Great British Baking Show is “best enjoyed cozied up on the couch with butter, jam, and clotted cream,” Netflix recommends. But feel free to enjoy your freshly streaming treat with any of these Great British Baking Show copycat recipes!
