A "Prequel" Season
FYI, Season 5 of this American broadcast version was created a year before Season 1. For Bake Off nerds, this is Series 3 of the British broadcast.

Not Season 5
This might be the fifth season shown in the US, but it's actually season 3 from the BBC. The newest season from Channel4 (they changed networks) is not the same as this here. Hopefully they show it soon instead of keep showing old seasons out of order.
