The Great British Baking Show returns to PBS this fall

The Great British Baking Show season 2 will air on PBS this fall, returning a terrific UK show to the US.

PBS will broadcast the fourth season of the competition, which is known as The Great British Bake-Off in the UK. It will air Sept. 6 through Nov. 8.

Earlier this year, PBS aired season five; the sixth season debuts in the UK later this month.

This is terrific news, because the show was one of my favorite shows so far this year. It’s a cooking competition with heart and warmth, but the contestants are also held to  exacting standards by series judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood. Hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins are an absolute delight.

There is no filler here, just delectable television, and I’m looking forward to seeing another season.

Here’s the BBC’s trailer from the fourth series, which aired in the UK in 2013.
