Channel 4 and Love Productions have confirmed a new two series agreement for The Great British Bake Off – extending the show into 2021.
The tenth series of Bake Off will be broadcast on Channel 4 later this year, with a further two series now confirmed to follow.
It was also announced today that for the first time Junior Bake Off (15 X 60’) will be broadcast on Channel 4. As part of this agreement, three new series will be made by Love Productions – the first will air on Channel 4 later in 2019.
Ian Katz, Channel 4 Director of Programmes says: “Over the last two years The Great British Bake Off has become one of the best loved programmes on Channel 4, embodying the warmth, mischief and inclusivity for which the channel is known. We’re delighted to be continuing our fantastically collaborative partnership with Love Productions and especially to be discovering a new generation of British baking talent with Junior Bake Off.”
Richard McKerrow, Chief Executive Love Productions says: “We are delighted to have extended Bake Off’s stay on Channel 4 after two great years together. We have been hugely encouraged by the audience response and feedback the show has received during its time on Channel 4 and are thrilled to be bringing Junior Bake Off to the Channel. It seems particularly appropriate to be announcing news of the extension on Channel 4 as we enjoy Bake Off’s tenth anniversary on British television.”
