About the show
Junior Bake Off is a CBBC spinoff from the mega popular series The Great British Bake Off that has been on the air since 2011. The UK children’s baking competition show is executive produced by Kieran Smith and Anna Beattie and produced by Love Productions. The current fourth season premiered on September 19, 2016.
The forty contestants on the program are aged nine to twelve, and each of them faces two baking challenges over the course of 10 heats. All kinds of sweet treats are produced during the elimination process that brings the participant count from forty to four for the ultimate standoff on the final competition. The judge in the current season is Nadiya Hussain, who was the inspiring winner of The Great British Bake Off last year.
Chances of renewal and current reception
The future of the program remains uncertain in the wake of The Great British Bakeoff’s projected move to Channel 4 next year and the three-year deal that was signed with the program’s creators. TGBB’s new network has not mentioned anything regarding the future of other related shows. Junior Bake Off is popular with the audience, just as the original show, and it boasts a 7.4/10 IMDb score and a BAFTA for Best Entertainment Program in 2014. It is hard to imagine what changes await Junior Bake Off in view of TGBB’s move to another network, so we’ll monitor network announcements continuously and inform you when a decision is made.
