Season 2 of Bakers vs. Fakers premiered two weeks ago on Wednesday, May 24th and it appears that Food Network has removed the show from their schedule.  A new episode will not air tonight and there are no episodes on the upcoming schedule, meaning the show is most likely cancelled.

According to the press release for season 2 of Bakers vs Fakers, this season was supposed to be 13 episodes long, so they cancelled this pretty early.  Usually when a show is cancelled, Food Network will air the remaining episodes in a random timeslot (like 4am), but it appears they have not done this yet.

The reason for the cancellation is probably due to low ratings.  According to Showbuzzdaily, the 5/24 episode had 557,000 viewers (0.15 key demo) and the 5/31 episode had 651,000 viewers (0.19 key demo).

Season 1 of Bakers vs. Fakers premiered in January 2017 and was six episodes long.  Buddy Valastro was the host of season 1, while Lorraine Pascale was the host of season 2.
