Plot Synopsis

In THE GREAT BRITISH BAKING SHOW, hosted by Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc, renowned British bakers Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood search for the UK's best amateur bakers by testing their competitors' skills on cakes, breads, pastries and desserts of all kinds, ultimately crowning a winner after 10 weeks of competition. PBS aired the U.S. premiere of this series on Sunday, December 28, 2014 at 8pm. On Sunday, September 6, 2015 at 7pm (check local listings), PBS aired the U.S. premiered of the fourth season of THE GREAT BRITISH BAKING SHOW. The season opener introduces the 13 bakers who make simple sandwich cakes in the Signature challenge, angel food cakes in Mary's Technical challenge and all things chocolate in the Showstopper. PBS aired the U.S. premiere of the fifth season of THE GREAT BRITISH BAKING SHOW -- the third season of the series to be shown in America -- on Friday, July 1, 2016 at 9pm (check local listings). The new season follows 12 amateur bakers as they don aprons and head for the tent in the British countryside, hoping to be named Britain's best. Returning judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood have created new challenges to test their baking prowess, creativity and skill, and Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc return to host another season. On Friday, June 16, 2017 from 9-11pm (check local listings), PBS aired the U.S. premiere of the sixth season of THE GREAT BRITISH BAKING SHOW, showing back-to-back new episodes. This marks the fourth season making its debut on PBS. The season opener (9pm), "Cake," introduces the 12 bakers as they tackle a back-to-basics British classic, a popular cake with a fatless sponge and tricky chocolate work. The showstopper is sophisticated and high-end. With this cake, there's nowhere to hide. Then, the night's second new episode (10pm), "Biscuits," follows the 11 remaining bakers tasked with making 24 elaborately decorated biscuits; a biscuit that requires perfect piping; and a biscuit structure that demands precision baking -- and reveals a little more about each of the contenders.
