Zumbo's Just Desserts is an Australian baking reality competition television program on the Seven Network. The program was developed by the creators of My Kitchen Rules,[1] and is hosted by Adriano Zumbo and Rachel Khoo, with Gigi Falanga as assistant.[2]

A second season was commissioned in August 2018 with Netflix joining as a co-producer.[3] The second season premiered on 17 November 2019.[4] Falanga did not return for season two.

Background[edit]

In January 2016, it was reported that the Seven Network was preparing to launch a then unnamed baking program, very similar to The Great Australian Bake Off.[5] The following month, the title of the program was revealed along with naming Zumbo as host.[6] Khoo was named as co-host in April 2016.[7][8] In June 2016, Falanga was announced as joining the program as assistant and timekeeper[2] and promos were released, advising the show would air after the 2016 Summer Olympics.[9]

Despite poor ratings for the first season, an international release through streaming service Netflix led to a second season being commissioned as a co-production between Netflix and Seven Studios.[3]
