Lehiyot Ita (The Baker and the Beauty) is one of the most popular series in Israel. Now, fans are in luck because the romantic dramedy, which has been on hiatus since 2017, is back for a third season!

Created by notable Israeli television host, Assi Azar, the show originally aired in 2013 and quickly became one of the highest-rated series in Israel. Lehiyot Ita means ‘to be with her’ in Hebrew but the series was called The Baker and the Beauty for the English subtitled version. 

Since its release, The Baker and the Beauty has inspired multiple adaptations and remakes, including an American version produced by Keshet Studios and Universal Television for ABC.

Here’s everything we know about Season 3 so far

A short teaser trailer was released on October 8th announcing that the newest season of the show will premiere on Tuesday October 12th.

By the looks of it, there’s a lot to look forward to this season and hopefully fans will get some long-awaited answers to the cliffhangers left at the end of season two. 

In addition to all our favorite cast members like Rotem Sela, Aviv Alush and Hila Saada, prominent Israeli actor, Omar Sharif Jr., will be making an appearance in the third season. 

Where to watch?

The show will be aired live on Keshet 12 and On Demand in Hebrew. For english-speaking fans, it’s not clear if or when Amazon Prime will air the subtitled version of the show.

Season is set to be four episodes and will be the last season of the beloved show.

“[By the end of production] there was a feeling of parting from a family, we have been working together for eight years and I hope we can be in touch,” Mark Ivanir, who plays Tzvika Granot said in an interview.

Lehiyot Ita was in production for the last year and was filmed during the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

Here’s the cast at their first table read in November of 2020.

The pandemic caused logistical challenges for certain cast members who live outside of Israel, like Ivanir. Throughout production there were a few covid scares and cases which impacted the shooting schedule, Ivanir said.

We are so excited to see what Season 3 will hold for the Dahari family and beyond.
