Calling all bakers! Everyone's favorite heartwarming reality show is bringing more seasons to Netflix.

In these trying times, there's no better, easier, and more accessible form of solace than the four "collections" of The Great British Baking Show on Netflix.

British TV personality Prue Leith has joined Hollywood as a judge, and the new presenters are comedian/actors Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig.

And there are even more changes expected on this year's series with challenges expected to get an update with the introduction of vegan week and weeks based on different cultures.

"To go with the United Kingdom channel switch, the show - titled "The Great British Baking Show" in the USA due to a copyright issue with Pillsbury" - is making the move from PBS to Netflix.

The Great British Bake Off 2018
The new series of The Great British Bake Off starts on Channel 4 next week

The new series of The Great British Bake Off kicks off next week, and while we're still not over the fact that Mary Berry is no longer part of it, we're pretty excited about this year's series. The second session will appear on the streaming platform later this year, and once the third session is filmed in the United Kingdom, the tenth overall, it'll arrive on Netflix in 2019. And Season 10, yet to be filmed, will likely premiere and stream in 2019.

It's no soggy bottom but at least the show is still open to making us laugh while we try to learn how to avoid a baking disaster. But the American public broadcaster lost rights to the show's initial USA window with the deal that saw it move to channel 4 in the United Kingdom.

Netflix picked up the baton and will provide eager fans with their baking fix.

Yes, the first episode of the new season doesn't contain a single dirty joke and we're not OK with it.
