In the last six months, many of us have spent more time watching TV than usual. This is because a lot of us have been working from home. We’ve tried our best to shower every day and only wear sweatpants a few times per week, but with no boss at home (unless you count our children) there have been a lot of television-based breaks. Now, more than ever, instead of looking forward to fall events (most are canceled) and get-togethers (not happening this year), we’re perusing what shows are dropping on our favorite streaming services.
This is exactly what happened recently when we realized The Great British Baking Show is set to drop its 11th season on Sept. 25. In a world of over-the-top, ridiculous reality shows paired with the year that is 2020, TGBBS is like pulling on a warm sweater and sipping on a hot cup of tea on a cold day. We couldn’t be more stoked for its return.
But, it’s not just the return of our beloved baking show. There are other Netflix shows (and new seasons) we’re looking forward to in an effort to ensure we survive this terrible year. Check them all out below.
