Netflix‘s Baking Impossible has baked itself as a show that is different from all the baking competition shows that Netflix offered in their oven such as Cupcake Wars, Cake Wars, and of course the fan favourite Great British Baking Show, which is why a lot of fans are asking for Baking Impossible Season 2.
First aired back in October and features a panel of celebrity judges including Andrew Smyth, Joanne Chang, and Hakeem Oluseyi, who critique and decide the fate of teams consisting of one baker and one engineer. Yes, engineers. Why?
Because the general theme of the show is to bake a creation that is not only delicious but also one that passes a pretty wild “stress test” such as a cake that can float like a boat or edible mechanical robots or an entire edible golf course. No wonder fans love the show.
So will there be Baking Impossible Season 2, or is the future of the show impossible to determined? No need to bake impossible cakes, we will tell you everything you need to know about Baking Impossible Season 2
Will there be Baking Impossible Season 2?
As of right now, Netflix has not yet confirmed that this impossible baking show will return. However, it’s likely that there hasn’t been any because Netflix is waiting for the final calculations of the show audience numbers. Based on Netflix history of renewing shows, it may take a month or two to get any information so we will update this page accordingly as news comes in.
But, Netflix has a strong incentive to renew the show. “Baking Impossible” has been incredibly well-received by critics and fans, as it currently sits at a 100% fresh critic score and 80% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.
Critics noted that the show was “both thrilling and heartwarming to watch formerly unacquainted duos from very different backgrounds, with very different skillsets, work collaboratively to accomplish an extremely nerdy goal. With that kind of praise, Season 2 could definitely be on the way for “Baking Impossible.” Here’s what we know so far.
Each team’s general task is to bake a creation that’s not only delicious to consume, but that passes certain “stress tests” implemented by the panel of judges. The “stress tests” themselves are often pretty wild and are a part of the design of the food itself. For example, the first episode, titled “Whatever Floats Your Boat,” has the teams design baked goods with the abilities of a boat, actually testing their buoyancy in water. Other episodes feature edible robots and entirely edible mini-golf courses.
Based on the good reception of Baking Impossible, fans shouldn’t worry too much that there won’t be Baking Impossible Season 2 because the possibility of renewal is real. And if it does happen, the second season will likely be released sometime in the summer or fall of 2022, given the time needed to produce reality shows of this nature.
Who will be in Baking Impossible Season 2?
Nothing has been confirmed as of yet for the cast of “Baking Impossible” if Season 2 is greenlit. Due to the nature of the show, the teams will likely consist of brand new bakers and engineers with the previous season winners appearing a guest judges or contestants, like any other reality cooking / baking shows.
The common theme in reality cooking / baking shows is that the judges are mainstay of the show and usually permanent, so expect Andrew Smyth, Joanne Chang, and Hakeem Oluseyi to return to their post. But since this is a new show whether or not Netflix shake things up with new set of judges is uncertain as of now.
The host of the show, Justin Willman, a comedian, producer, television personality and American magician who also hosts “Magic for Humans,” will remain with the show moving into Season 2. This also isn’t Willman’s first time on a baking show, as he has appeared on both “Cupcake Wars” and “Halloween Wars” as well.
What’s the challenges for Baking Impossible Season 2?
It’s likely that the challenges for Season 2 of “Baking Impossible,” if renewed, will be even wilder, tougher, and more creative than the previous season. Given that Season 1 features bridges, robots, mini golf courses, Rube Goldberg contraptions, and even edible cars — it’s hard to imagine how they will take it up a notch from here.
Perhaps, Baking Impossible Season 2 could feature edible and functioning aircraft, or possibly even edible backpacks or beds. The common theme seems to be taking the most inedible items and making them functional and delicious.
For now, we’ll all just have to wait on the edge of our seats through the holidays and rewatch Season 1 to prepare our creative minds for a possible second season.
