The ‘Great British Baking Show’ Is Back for Season 4: Watch a Sneak Peek

Preheat the oven! The Great British Baking Show returns for season 4 on Friday, June 16, along with judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood and hosts Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins.

“I’m expecting the unexpected,” Berry says in a sneak peek of the upcoming season, which features a bevy of bakers. The clip also includes an endearing woman named Val who is a self-described “retired headmistress, grandmother, Keep Fit fanatic and Ed Sheeran fan.”

The show follows the trials and tribulations of 12 passionate amateur bakers whose goal is to be named the U.K.’s best.

Each week kicks off with a “signature challenge” for the bakers to take on, which is then followed by a “technical challenge” that involves mysterious pastries and cakes. The “showstopper challenge” then produces either amazing — or sometimes — disastrous, collapsing creations. A “star baker” is crowned and others are sent home.

The Great British Baking Show returns to PBS Fridays at 9 p.m. ET.
