Revamped ‘Great British Bake Off’ Heads to Netflix in U.S.

Netflix announced Thursday that it will be the new home of first-run U.S. airings of the show, in the wake of its big U.K. switch from the BBC to Channel 4. That means the first season with new hosts Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding, alongside new judge Prue Leith, will arrive on the service Aug. 31, with their second season coming later this year and the yet-to-be-filmed third (and the U.K. version’s tenth) on deck for 2019. – Michael O’Connell, The Hollywood Reporter
