In the show, she handpicks eight recipes out of her most precious collection of cakes and confectionery. Along with her exceptionally skilled approach to cooking, she has also been using her show to voice her opinions on what it means to be a brown Muslim woman in a world dominated by white males. As fans have adored her strong and endearing presence on screen, it is no doubt that ‘Nadiya Bakes’ season 1 gained considerable momentum. If you happen to be Nadiya’s fan wondering about the next season, here’s everything we know about ‘Nadiya Bakes’ season 2!
Nadiya Bakes Season 2 Release Date
‘Nadiya Bakes’ season 1 released in its entirety on February 12, 2021, on Netflix. It consists of eight episodes with a runtime of 30 minutes each. Before its release in the US, the show released on September 9, 2020, on BBC Two in the UK. The show makes for an inspiring watch as Nadiya whips up some of her finest recipes, coupled with her insights about personal experiences that strike a chord with the audiences.
As far as the second season is concerned, here’s what we know. Netflix has not yet released any update about its renewal. But the show has attracted a solid viewership as people have lately developed a serious interest in baking. Nadiya spoke to The Guardian about the positive effects of baking in easing lockdown blues and anxieties. “It’s the thing that gives me comfort when I’m suffering with anxiety, especially over lockdown,” she said. And she’s not the only person who subscribes to the same view. The pandemic lockdown has permanently changed millions of people’s lifestyles, and we’re all trying a hand in materializing delectable recipes from the comfort of our homes.
It is not yet decided whether the show will get a second season, but Nadiya certainly has more ideas to share and hearts to touch. Her books are an existing testament to the scores of recipes waiting to be featured on screen. Although, if the show returns, it might first air on its home network BBC Two before Netflix takes it up. If that happens, we expect ‘Nadiya Bakes’ season 2 to release on Netflix sometime in 2022.
