The Baker and the Beauty premiered in April this year and the show quickly won thousands of fans across the world.
The ABC show is based on the hit Israeli series of the same name and follows Daniel Garcia (Victor Rasuk), a young Cuban man who works at the family bakery and does everything he’s asked by his parents and siblings.
Daniel’s life turns upside down after meeting international star Noa Hamilton (Nathalie Kelley) and finds himself in the media spotlight of her popular life.
The show has received a big fan base for such a short period of time. So, will The Baker and the Beauty return for season 2?

Creator Dean Georgaris talks show’s future
The Baker and the Beauty’s creator Dean Georgaris was optimistic and hopeful that ABC would renew the show for another series. He already has planned storylines for season 2!
Speaking to TVLine, Dean said: “We have season 2 all mapped out, and we know the network is excited about it, which is good. It just makes it all the more edge-of-your-seat, if you’re us, for the next month or whatever it is before they make their decision.”
They believe in the show, and they understand what we’re trying to do, and my hope is that there’ll still be room for us. I’m optimistic, but you do never know.
We’re sure this cancellation will come as a serious disappointment to The Baker and the Beauty fandom.
