Baking It is mixing up its ingredient list: Peacock’s baking competition will return for Season 2 with Amy Poehler hosting alongside her old SNL castmate Maya Rudolph, TVLine has learned.
The streamer has announced a premiere date as well: Season 2 will debut Monday, Dec. 12, with new episodes airing weekly. The same day, NBC will air a special celebrity holiday episode of Baking It at 10/9c where “Maya and Amy invite their famous friends to ‘cele-bake’ the holidays in a friendly competition to raise some dough for their favorite charities,” per the official description.
Poehler steps in for fellow SNL alum Andy Samberg, who hosted Season 1 with Rudolph. (Baking It hails from the same production team as the NBC reality competition Making It, hosted by Poehler and Nick Offerman.) On Baking It, talented bakers compete in a series of challenges designed by the hosts and face a formidable judging panel made up of real-life grandmothers.
“This season’s coziest cooking competition is Baking It Season 2!” Poehler and Rudolph said in a statement. “This season has everything: The Grannies, crafty bakes, goofy songs about butter, cash prizes, BFFs, family, and did we mention butter? And to make it even more exciting, we’ll be hosting this season together!”Source: TV Line
