Following its recent cancellation at ABC, we know that there were people hoping to see The Baker and the Beauty season 2 happening somewhere. Unfortunately, we have news now indicating that it’s just not going to happen.
According to a report from TVLine, the romantic comedy-drama hybrid series will remain canceled, as it has failed to find a new home elsewhere. We did think that there was a small chance that a streaming provider like Hulu or Disney+ could be interested in the show, but it felt like a small chance. The big problem here is that The Baker and the Beauty just didn’t have a sizable audience on ABC, and didn’t have enough time to build a big fanbase.

This was a fun show — the one thing that The Baker and the Beauty really suffers from is the simple fact that it never had enough of a chance to really stand on its own. The promotion for season 1 wasn’t spectacular outside of ABC, and it didn’t help that it had a terrible lead-in for most of its run in The Bachelor: Listen to Your Heart. Sometimes, shows never really had all that much of a chance to succeed.
Hopefully, ABC will work in the future to retain some of its late spring/summer shows, especially ones that have a diverse cast and tell stories that you don’t often get on TV. This cancellation comes less than a year after the network ended Grand Hotel, and in general the network hasn’t kept a summer scripted show in quite a few years.
We’ll miss The Baker and the Beauty — for now, we’ll just assume that Noa and Daniel get married and have a happy ending to their story.
