The streaming network has acquired U.S. rights to three new and future seasons of the show — the ones without original stars Mary Berry, Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins. Netflix said Thursday that it is the new home of first-run U.S. airings of the show, in the wake of its big U.K. switch from BBC to Channel 4.
Season 4-7 of The Great British Baking Show already stream on the service as Netflix collections 1-4. The entire latest season, which already aired in the UK as Season 8 there, will go live August 31.
All 10 episodes of Season 8, which aired last year in the UK, will launch August 31 on Netflix. Season 9 will premiere later this year, and Season 10 will debut in fall 2019. All will be billed as Netflix Originals stateside.
Netflix also will air two-episode holiday specials in the U.S. this year and in 2019 and 2020. The Great British Baking Show: The Beginnings, which aired in 2012 during Season 3 of the UK series, also will be available on Netflix in the U.S. later this year.
