If you're looking for a reality competition show that's entertaining, fast-paced, and unfailingly polite, then you'll want to tune in to The Great British Baking Show (or The Great British Bake Off, as it's known in the United Kingdom). Every season, a new crop of talented amateur bakers face off in a 10-week competition, taking on challenges and whipping up desserts until only one baker is left standing. While the show is based in the UK, it's gained a huge following in the US ever since past seasons hit Netflix, and we finally have an answer about season 11's premiere date! The show will premiere on Channel 4 in the UK on Sept. 25, with new episodes being posted to Netflix every Friday, HuffPost confirmed. So even if you're in the US, you can watch concurrently with the UK instead of binging the entire season at a later date.
The Channel 4 series was supposed to start filming in April, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Love Productions made the decision in March to delay production for the safety of the presenters, bakers, and crew, which pushed back the premiere date. "We continue to monitor the situation and follow the advice of Public Health England and we will delay filming on Bake Off until it is safe to proceed," a spokesperson for Love Productions said at the time.
In trying times like these, we could all use a few Paul Hollywood handshakes and soggy bottom jokes to lift our spirits, so we're counting down the days until the end of September!
