A dozen charming amateur bakers offer trays of edible treats and a tent full of doughy drama this summer when PBS brings back the U.K.’s unstoppable competition series, THE GREAT BRITISH BAKING SHOW, for a brand new season, airing Fridays, starting July 1 at 9:00 p.m. ET (check local listings).
Returning judges Mary Berry, a best-selling cookbook author and the U.K.’s “doyenne of baking,” and Paul Hollywood, an artisan bread-making expert whose personal appearances rival those of rock stars, join hosts Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc in search of the best all-around baker among the contestants.
“In response to the enthusiastic fan support for this sweet and savory series, we are thrilled to confirm that PBS will be bringing the latest BBC season of THE GREAT BRITISH BAKING SHOW to our viewers on Fridays this summer,” said Beth Hoppe, PBS Chief Programming Executive and General Manager, General Audience Programming. “And we are happy to be airing additional seasons of the hit series over the next couple of years for fans who just can’t get enough.”
