Clear your schedule and put on your apron, Netflix is cooking up another season of “Nailed It!” and its coming to the platform in May. Nicole and Jacques return to host the series and judge the chaos in the kitchen, and we have a preview of the challenges. In Netflix’s announcement on Tuesday, the video streaming service teased several episodes of the show, including themes from Marvel, phobias, gingerbread, and dinosaurs.
In the Marvel Episode, bakers summon their not-so-super powers to make Marvel-themed cupcakes with detailed cookie toppers and a daunting “Black Panther” cake. Actress and gaming icon Felicia Day joins the judge’s panel for that episod. In Cake-O-Phobia, viewers will find a trio of creepy-crawly bug cookies and a terrifying clown cake that tastes like cotton candy. Baking magician Natalie Sideserf joins the judge’s panel to scare the bakers onto the right path.
For the episode Masterpiece or Disasterpiece?, the amateur bakers attempt to imitate the masters with gingerbread self-portraits and a sculpted cake replica of Michelangelo’s “David.” Actress and comedian Betsy Sodaro joins Nicole and Jacques on the judge’s panel in this work of baking art.
Prehistoric Bakes offers inside-out Neanderthal cupcakes and a tropical-flavored T. rex cake, look for YouTube sensation and baker Rosanna Pansino as a guest judge. Oui Can’t Bake puts the chef to the test and asks them to make perfectly puffed éclairs and a layered bust of Napoleon Bonaparte for not one but two esteemed French chefs. The lovely pastry master Hubert Keller joins the judge’s panel for this episode. In Ready to Wear, Ready to Eat two high-fashion challenges put the bakers’ hopeless skills to the test: fondant-covered doll cakes and an edible headdress heaped with fruit. Humorist and pastry chef Charles Phoenix join Nicole and Jacques on the panel.
The Nailed It! competition sees home bakers with a terrible track record take a shot at recreating edible masterpieces for a $10,000 prize. Nailed It! is produced by the Magical Elves, with Dan Cutforth, Jane Lipsitz, Casey Kriley, Patrick J. Doody, Daniel Calin and Gayle Gawlowski serving as executive producers. Jo Sharon serves as co-executive producer.
