What’s this?? Good things, two days in a row? Yesterday we got the long-awaited trailer for Season 2 of The Mandalorian, and today we were #blessed with the news that The Great British Baking Show is returning to save our sanity and sooth our cold, jaded souls.
The tent is back open for business!
On September 25, an all-new season of The Great British Baking Show will start rolling out on Netflix in The US — new episodes will be available every Friday (three days after they premiere in The UK) pic.twitter.com/CQdzQbTiJ6

This is the most excited I have felt in months. If we’re being completely honest, I’ve been In A Place™ for a while now, but particularly the last month or so. Thanks to *vaguely waves hand at the dozens of different dumpster fires, plus the literal fires that are slowly poisoning my lungs *, my mental health has been as a brittle as Paul Hollywood’s biscotti. I’ve been yearning for a heaping medicinal dose of GBBO since at least June, which was approximately three years ago.
Where is a new season of Great British Bake Off when you really, really, really need it #GBBO

And lo, salvation is nigh! And it cometh in the form of Victoria sponges, naughty baking innuendos, and precious British idiosyncrasies. Just take that warm, gooey, deliciously uplifting, calorie free goodness and inject it straight into my veins, please. Mama needs endorphins.
Meet the Bakers
Here they come, rolling up their sleeves. They bake the tastiest treats, for everyone they meet. Hey hey, it’s the bakers! And Series 11’s coming around! They’re so busy baking, and one winner will be crowned.#GBBO. Tuesday 22nd September. 8pm. @Channel4. pic.twitter.com/EYPa2YxYlT

Did the jaunty theme song bring a tear to your eye? Did your saliva glands kick into overdrive? Are you experiencing an overwhelming craving for cake? Is the oven preheating right now? Or is that just me?
This new season also introduces new host Matt Lucas, who replaces Sandi Toksvig. I can’t wait to get to know these lovely souls, and admire their artistic creations while simultaneously despairing at ever achieving that level of baking ability.
The US will be able to watch a new episode of Great British Baking Show every Friday beginning September 25th. Which is perfect, because Friday nights are date nights in my house, and nothing says romance like ordering in Korean and placing a friendly wager on who will win Star Baker. Winner gets…never mind.
On Your Marks…Get Set…Bake! The Great British Baking Show returns to Netflix September 25th.
