The Great British Baking Show season 11 coming to Netflix?

The wait for The Great British Baking Show season 11 is nearly over! The newest season of the UK’s beloved baking competition is set to premiere on Netflix on Friday, Sept. 25.

Although there was some concern among fans whether the season would be able to film amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the production team managed to successfully shoot season 11 over a course of a few weeks. With filming over, the time has finally come for the new season to begin as 12 new bakers come out to compete for the title of Britain’s best amaturer baker.

Returning to judge the bakers’ tasty creations are Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith, who will once again serve as the season’s judges. Also returning is host Noel Fielding who is set to emcee the new season with help from his new co-host Matt Lucas.

While there might be new changes ahead this season, fans can look forward to yet another loveable crop of bakers and stunning desserts!

The Great British Baking Show season 11 release time on Netflix

While most shows do not come to Netflix until after their season has come to an end, The Great British Baking Show is slightly more unique in its release schedule.

Thanks to Netflix’s unique deal with the studio behind the series, new episodes arrive on Netflix three days after their UK broadcast. As a result, fans of the show are able to keep up with the current season as it unfolds with only a slight delay from those across the pond through the weekly release plans.

Although the release structure is unique from most Netflix originals and imports, the release time for the show is not. Like with most new arrivals, the first episode of The Great British Baking Show season 11 will be released on Netflix at 12:01 am PT / 3:01 am ET.

Netflix will then release new episodes weekly throughout the upcoming weeks, with each new episode dropping at the same time weekly. Of course, you can also stay up late each Thursday in order to catch the episodes shortly after they drop. Otherwise, the series will make for a perfect Friday treat for those non-night owls out there.
