While "more news soon" is still pending, judge Paul Hollywood filled viewers in on more details in a video posted to his Instagram in which he thanks hotels for accommodating the cast and crew for seven weeks while they finished filming amid the Coronavirus pandemic.
"We've managed to finally finish Series 11 of The Great British Bake Off," the veteran judge announced. "It's been really unusual this year filming under COVID conditions, but the lockdown has been amazing," Hollywood added before thanking the crew and hotels again.
The celebrity chef will return as a judge alongside Prue Leith and co-host Noel Fielding. Since co-host Sandi Toksvig announced her exit prior to Season 11, she'll be replaced by comedian Matt Lucas in this newly filmed set of episodes.
Stay tuned for more details about when the newest episodes will arrive, until then stream the fan favorite series on Netflix.
