The Great British Baking Show will be back in the U.S. this summer, when PBS will air GBBO’s seventh season, which aired in the UK this fall and is the last season ever with Mary Berry, Paul Hollywood, and Mel and Sue. Season four of the PBS rebroadcasts will air Friday nights at 9, starting June 16.
PBS announced this morning that “it has committed to a fifth season of the series that has previously aired on the BBC.” After this summer’s broadcast, GBBO series four through seven will have aired on PBS, so that means we’ll get seasons one, two, or three.
In a press release, PBS’ chief programming executive, Beth Hoppe, said the show “has emerged as one of PBS’ most popular programs, with the third season, debuting last July, ranking as the most-streamed program on PBS this past summer. We’re thrilled to continue airing this warm and charming competition for at least two more seasons, and continuing to build its popularity on these shores.”
The show will continue to stream on pbs.org the morning after it airs and on other PBS apps, including iOS, Apple TV, and Roku. The three seasons PBS already aired can be streamed via PBS’ Passport service, available to those who donate to some local stations.
