We all know that I have loved The Baker and The Beauty was one of my favorite new shows and I was pissed when it was cancelled. The 9 episode series aired on ABC and though it didn’t score high in the ratings, in my opinion it wasn’t given the proper chance to flourish.
Bad time slots and poor promotion were to blame, in my opinion. And I feel justified in saying that as it’s definitely been discovered on Netflix.
The show is the #1 show on Netflix in the United States and personally, I am loving the rewatch. I am also loving that other people are finding and falling for Noa Hamilton and Daniel Garcia as much as I did.
The status of the show on Netflix is giving the stars hope. Hell, it’s giving me hope and that’s saying something. I’m a pessimist.
Nathalie Kelley posted on Instagram and captioned it, “I can’t even begin to tell you the joy I have in announcing that The Baker and the Beauty is the NUMBER ONE TV show on @netflix!!! In less than a week, and with zero advertising you all have made this possible. THANK YOU! Thank you to everyone who made this show so magical: actors, writers, producers, directors, crew and many more – to see it finally getting the love and recognition it deserves is so validating! We made a show about LOVE with lots of laughter thrown in for good measure. This one is for my Latin community, who deserve this kind of representation on television. And for my LGBTQ brothers and sisters who are equally deserving of being portrayed in such a loving light ✊🏽🌈💃🏽 keep this up and who knows what might happen… 💋💋 love Noa Hamilton.”
