Netflix is teaming up with Marie Kondo once again for a new show.
The decluttering expert became a household name worldwide when her lifestyle series, Tidying Up, debuted on Netflix back in 2017. Nominated for Emmys in 2019, she taught homeowners how to make their houses neater, mess-free environments, encouraging people to part with things that they don’t need or don’t make them happy.
Now, in Sparking Joy with Marie Kondo, Marie and her team set out to tidy one small town in America, sparking joy in big new ways – and viewers can nominate which town to be Marie’s next mission by visiting TidyMyTown.com.
Produced by Alfred Street Industries, the series is exec-produced by Kondo alongside Takumi Kawahara, Dan Cutforth, Jane Lipsitz and Dan Volpe .
It joins a number of other unscripted shows renewed by Netflix, including Rhythm + Flow, The Circle and Love is Blind.
“It’s been incredible to see Netflix members everywhere respond to the raw, authentic stories of real people and real stakes,” say 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.”
