Netflix is set to be getting weekly episodes of one of Britain’s most-watched and believed reality competition series starting in September 2020 with weekly episodes of The Great British Baking Show coming to Netflix starting September 25th, 2020.
GBBO or Bake Off as it’s sometimes known is a baking competition series where a group of amateurs compete by creating cakes, biscuits and other confectionaries with an all-star guest panel.
The series notably moved from its UK home originally on BBC to Channel 4 from season eight onwards but despite this change, BBC Worldwide is still who licenses the show abroad.
Netflix has been licensing The Great British Baking Show for a number of years after it had aired on PBS in the States. These new episodes typically came a year after they aired in the United Kingdom. But, things will be different in 2020.
Announced on September 15th, 2020 Netflix US once again announced it’ll get new episodes weekly following the same release schedule as season 10 last year which is labelled as “Collection 7”. Season 11 will be almost certainly be labelled “collection 8” on Netflix US.
The tent is back open for business!
