When PBS brought The Great British Bake-Off to the United States, giving Americans the chance to watch this amazing show free and legally, it also renamed the series, renumbered its seasons, and aired those seasons out of order.
It’s wonderful that we now have The Great British Baking Show, but the result is definitely confusing: Great British Bake-Off season three airs on PBS this summer, but Netflix is already streaming a Great British Baking Show season three—because that’s actually Great British Bake-Off season six. See what I mean?
To try to clear up any confusion, and to facilitate easy watching of seasons you may have missed, I’ve created this chart. I’ll update it as new seasons become available in the UK and the US, on television and via streaming and other media.
