Good news, America – it’s time to start baking again! Another season of the highly popular cooking competition The Great British Baking Show will be airing on PBS stations nationwide this summer, beginning July 1.

PBS has aired two previous seasons of The Great British Baking Show, and will broadcast Britain’s Season 6 this summer, and call it Season 3. (The previously aired US seasons were actually Seasons 4 and 5 in British time. Confusing? A little bit. But let’s go with it.) PBS is also planning to air additional seasons of the show over the next two years, with more information on that to be announced later.

‘The Great British Baking Show’ Recap: The Final

The day has finally arrived; a culmination of the past nine weeks of baking triumphs and blunders. But before we tuck into the deliciously stress-filled finale of The Great British Baking Show, you can review last week’s semi-final recap here. In fact, if you want to go back and remember how the whole series unfolded, you can check out recaps of every episode this season right here and relive the sweet and savory, the joy and the tears (mostly Ruby’s).

And so the field of 13,000 applicants had finally been whittled down to the three amateur bakers deemed most talented by Paul and Mary. Ruby, Frances and Kimberly faced off for one last trio of challenges In hopes of earning the Baking Show championship title. They had to impress the judges with their technique, flavors and originality – not a walk in the park (or down the aisle) by any means.
