The Great British Baking Show has become a reality TV staple in the United States, and now it’s been announced that one of the show’s numerous spin-offs is coming to Netflix. Pastry program: the professional arrives on Netflix in the United States in February 2023.
I call Bake Off: The Pros in the UK, the spin-off series has been on the air since 2016 and is now in its seventh series on Channel 4 (although Channel 4 calls it series five because seasons 1-2 aired on BBC Two). Unlike the main series, The Great British Baking Show, this series does not compete with amateurs for the top prize, but professionals in the field of baking.
We understand that season 6 (or series four, as Channel 4 tags; Netflix will tag it as season 1) is scheduled to hit Netflix on February 1, 2023. All 10 episodes will arrive together and not on a weekly basis like the main show.
According to Channel 4, here’s what you can expect from the spin-off, “Liam Charles and Tom Allen present the toughest Bake Off on TV, as teams of pastry chefs from the best hotels, restaurants and small businesses compete to be crowned the best pastry team in Brittany.”
The season coming to Netflix aired starting May 25, 2021 and saw 12 teams of pastry chefs go head-to-head in the battle to be crowned the winner.
It’s important to put attention on Baking Show: The Professional’s In addition to Netflix, it only applies to the United States. Other regions have yet to receive the mothership series or its other spinoffs, and there is currently no indication that that is changing.
This isn’t the first spin-off Netflix has picked up in recent years. Last year, they picked up a season of Junior Baking Show which arrived on August 17, 2022 and went on to become one of the biggest children’s titles of the year.
The main show also received a new season in 2022, with Collection 9 releasing weekly episodes from September 16, 2022 until the end of the year. The holiday spin-off has also received a new season in November 2022.
The new series carries a TV-G with warnings for gore, language, suggestive dialogue, and violence.
