ABC has cancelled The Great American Baking Show in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations against judge Johnny Iuzzini.
In a statement, the network announced it has cut short the current third season:
“In light of allegations that recently came to our attention, ABC has ended its relationship with Johnny Iuzzini and will not be airing the remainder of ‘The Great American Baking Show’ episodes. ABC takes matters such as those described in the allegations very seriously and has come to the conclusion that they violate our standards of conduct. This season’s winner will be announced at a later date. Episodes of ‘The Great Christmas Light Fight’ and ‘CMA Country Christmas’ will take its place this week and next.”
At the time of the cancellation, ABC did not state whether the show will definitely return for Season 4 with new judges.
What do you think of the decision? Hoping Great American Baking Show will resurrect for Season 4 without Iuzzini, or should it stay cancelled forever?
