'The Great British Baking Show: Holidays' Is Back! Here's What You Need To Know

It was a tumultuous season for The Great British Baking Show. Fans have been quite open with their disappointment, and as much as we’d all like to forget about it, there was also that now-infamous "Mexican Week" episode. But the latest season of the baking competition has officially come to a close now that Netflix has made the The Great British Baking Show season finale available in the U.S.

Fortunately, on a more cheery note, The Great British Baking Show: Holidays, has just premiered on Netflix. Much more compact than the original series, The Great British Baking Show: Holidays is comprised of just two episodes: The Great Christmas Baking Show and The Great Festive Baking Show. The special series also typically includes appearances from British celebrities and past competitors.

The first episode, The Great Christmas Baking Show, features the cast of It's a Sin, a British drama miniseries that airs on HBO. Contestant are tasked with creating several quirky dishes, including boozy Yule logs, edible Christmas trees, and a leftovers pie.

For the second and final episode of the series, fans can expect appearances from a handful of past favorites, including Kim-Joy Hewlett, Jon Jenkins, Rowan Williams, and "patisserie queen" Hermine. It's a battle of the best-of-the-best as competitors take on New Year-inspired dishes.

"Bakers from seasons past scramble to make New Year breakfast buns, a vasilopita cake that's light on instructions and a biscuit-based winter diorama," according to a description of the episode.

Both of The Great British Baking Show: Holidays episodes are available now on Netflix.
