Netflix renews Love Is Blind through Season 5
James R | On 06, Apr 2022
Netflix has renewed Love Is Blind for a fourth and fifth season, with the show leading a new slate of dating reality series for the streamer.
The series follows 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 talk to a stream of potential love interests in isolated pods and when a meaningful connection us made, they propose and lay their eyes on their fiancé for the first time. Engaged and back in the real world, as the couples plan their wedding day, they then discover whether they could turn their emotional connection into a physical one before the fast-approaching ceremony.
“Netflix’s novel dating series is reality TV at its best and worst,” we wrote in our review of Season 1.
A second and third run were swiftly greenlit, and now Netflix has confirmed that a fourth and fifth season are on the way. A new installment of Love is Blind: After The Altar will premiere soon, charting the aftermath of Season 2, with a third season then following later in the year. Season 4 and 5 will each feature new singles and new cities. At the same time, Netflix has also expanded the franchise, with Love is Blind: Brazil Season 2 premiering this year and Love Is Blind: Japan debuting in February.
Also on the way this year:
The Ultimatum, which follows six different couples on the verge of marriage. One partner is ready to get married, the other isn’t quite as sure. An ultimatum is issued – and in just over eight weeks, they must commit to marriage, or move on. In the meantime, each will choose a new potential partner from one of the other couples, in a life-changing opportunity to get a glimpse of two different possible futures. Episodes 1 to 8 premiere today, with the final episodes following on 13th April.
Love On The Spectrum: USA is a docu-reality series following people on the autism spectrum as they navigate the world of dating and relationships. Following the success of the Australian series, this US-based series tells the stories of a unique and diverse cast of characters searching for love.
Dated and Related involves pairs of siblings seeing each other’s love life up close and personal as they search for “the one” together. Having the person who knows you better than anyone should help you navigate the tricky world of dating. But will they act as the ultimate wingman and help you find love? Or scupper your plans and call you out on all your bullsh*t? Either way it might just be Awkward. As. Hell.
Indian Matchmaking: Season 2 will see matchmaker Sima Taparia return to help some familiar faces and new singletons across the globe who have decided that it’s time to put their love lives in the hands of the expert. A third season has also been ordered.
Jewish Matchmaking, from the producers of Indian Matchmaking, will feature singles in the US and Israel as they turn their dating life over to a top Jewish matchmaker. Will using the traditional practice of shidduch help them find their soulmate in today’s world?
Too Hot To Handle will return for Season 4, which will see another group of singletons go on what they think will be the sexiest vacation of their lives. But with Lana watching, will this wild cast be able to stick to the rules and abstain from any kind of sexual contact (or self-gratification) in order to form meaningful connections, and keep that prize money as high as their sex drives?
And finally, a new series will bring together stars from other Netflix reality shows. Singles from the streamer’s reality series have done some crazy things to find love, but they’re still single. In this new series, they will couple up to match each other and themselves in hopes of finding the perfect match. Participants will range from veterans of Too Hot To Handle and Love Is Blind to familiar faces from The Circle, Selling Tampa and others.

Netflix renews Love Is Blind for Season 2 and 3
25th March 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.”
