Just like foodies around the world, at Guilty Eats we went through a pretty serious case of Great British Pastry Fair Withdrawal. You can’t go that long without hearing Paul Hollywood talk about soggy butt and watching him hand shakes without going a little bit crazy.
Collection 8 (what we Americans would call Season 8) wrapped up in November of last year with Peter Sawkins taking the jackpot. It was the first season with Matt Lucas taking over the co-hosting duties of Sandi Toksvig and the reaction from fans was a bit mixed.
Fans of The Great British Pastry Fair, or The Great British Cake as it is called in England, can be very possessive of the series. The show was criticized for not being as “warm and fuzzy” as the previous seasons, too many innuendo and because one of the pastry chefs (Laura) really did not deserve to be in the final.
Regardless, fans have been eagerly awaiting any news from Collection 9 and when we can expect to see it hit Netflix. ‘Cause with the world as it is, we could all use some freshness Great British Pastry Fair In our lifes.
The Great British Baking Show Collection 9 is coming to Netflix this fall.
Well, we have some great news to share. Variety reports that it has been confirmed that Collection 9 will begin streaming on Netflix later this year in the fall of 2021. It is assumed that the episodes will be available again three days after they air in England.
Unfortunately, other than that, there is little other news to share. It’s unclear whether Matt Lucas will return, whether the filming had to be changed again due to the COVID-19 pandemic, or the exact date of the new season’s premiere.
The only thing you can be sure of at this point is that Paul Hollywood will likely be back to take a dark look at the contestants and complain about the way they bake bread.
