Netflix renews Love Is Blind for Season 2 and 3
James R | On 25, Mar 2020
Netflix has renewed Love Is Blind for two more seasons.
The dating series, which premiered earlier this year, became a veritable streaming sensation, repeatedly appearing in Netflix’s top 10 most popular shows throughout its run and since.
The three-week event followed the journey of singles who want to be loved for who they are, rather than what they look like. With no distractions from the outside world, the singles talked to a stream of potential love interests in isolated pods, and when a meaningful connection was made, they proposed and laid their eyes on their fiancé for the first time. Engaged and back in the real world, as the couples planned their wedding day, they then discovered whether they could turn their emotional connection into a physical one before the fast-approaching ceremony.
Netflix confirmed the show as a hit with its reunion a few weeks ago, as the contestants got back together to challenge each other over what unfolded. Now, within a month of that special, Netflix has doubled down with a bumper commission not just for a second season but a third too.
Hosts Vanessa Lachey and her husband Nick Lachey (obviously) will once again ask whether love is blind as the new singles enter the pods for another round of social experimentation. Season 2 has been casting in Chicago with Season 3 to follow. Season 2 will premiere in 2021.
The show joins a number of other unscripted series given a renewal by Netflix, including Rhythm + Flow and The Circle.
“It’s been incredible to see Netflix members everywhere respond to the raw, authentic stories of real people and real stakes,” says Brandon Riegg, Netflix Vice President of Nonfiction Series and Comedy Specials. “We pride ourselves on creating a favorite show for any taste, and we’re thrilled fans embraced all of these series with such enthusiasm and shared passion. We look forward to sparking more joy for our members.”
