A new season of The Great British Baking Show will arrive on Netflix just in time to wrap Americans in a warm blanket following the brutal run up to the midterm elections. The new episodes, officially known on the platform as “Collection 6,” will be available to stream Friday, November 9, a spokesperson for the company confirms.

The collection aired as Season 9 of The Great British Bake Off on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom earlier this year. Details from Netflix are scarce, but a weird and wonderful Channel 4 trailer that dropped in August gives viewers a quick look at Noel Fielding, Sandi Toksvig, Prue Leith, and Paul Hollywood. The revamped cast of hosts and judges turned out to be a pleasant surprise for those who feared the show would lose its charm without Mary Berry, Mel Giedroyc, and Sue Perkins. The biggest news to come out of the 60-second preview and a couple of available production stills is that Fielding has given his mop top a significant trim, and he’s showing off some serious sideburns.

That haircut was a headline-generating scandal across the pond. American fans are advised to take the necessary time to process this development so it does not come as too big of a shock on the ninth.

More Baking Show is coming after the release of Collection 6. A two-episode holiday special is on deck for Netflix this year, and another new season is scheduled to broadcast in fall 2019.
