The Great British Baking Show may have only just wrapped its most recent season, but thanks to the magic of Netflix, there are already new baking adventures to follow back in the tent. While U.K. fans had the opportunity to watch “The Great Christmas Bake Off” and “The Great Festive Bake Off” on Channel Four during the 2019–2020 holiday season, American fans have had to wait all year. Netflix has finally dropped the two specials as The Great British Baking Show: Holidays season three, and surprisingly enough, they’re a great fit after the feel-good finale of series 11.

How has coronavirus affected GBBO 2020?
In a big way. Filming was delayed, contestants and crew were forced to quarantine over four weeks, not eleven, and the Paul Hollywood handshake will be no more. Its new trailer pays homage to the flour shortage of coronavirus lockdown.

The Great British Bake Off judges aren’t going anywhere.
No changes behind the table: Paul Hollywood is sticking around, despite seeing his debut London bakery Knead demolished in Euston. Prue Leith will continue to rate cakes according to their calorie status in a sort of lawful good doctrine. Mighty Boosh star Noel Fielding is still around, but Winnie the Witch narrator Sandi Toksvig is out: former Little Britain star Matt Lucas’ll replace her.
And what of the 2020 GBBO contestants?
Twelve bakers, one short of the usual bakers’ dozen, otherwise known as an easy casting pun, will face up to technical challenges, signature bakes, and the extremely stressful task of producing goods that respond to minuscule changes in temperature and humidity in a Very Big Tent That Is Entirely Open To The Atmosphere. Here they are, complete with two trios with suspiciously similar names. Mak, Marc, and Mark? For real?
