The news below was typed immediately after I renewed my Netflix. I love dating shows and Netflix does too.
Stepping up its commitment in the space, the streamer announced today that “Love Has No Offseason.”
Netflix has renewed Love is Blind for two more seasons as well as announced several new shows to all-but guarantee year-round reality dating content. The new shows include a U.S. version of Love on the Spectrum, The Ultimatum which features an all-queer cast, and a “crossover show” hosted by Nick Lachey.
Almost immediately after Love is Blind debuted in 2020, Netflix renewed it for two seasons. The second season of the show just aired between Feb. 11 and Feb. 25, and was a massive success, reaching the Top 10 in 54 countries. Its third season begins later this year, and it has been renewed the show for Seasons 4 and 5. Netflix also confirmed that a Love is Blind: After the Altar special with the Season 2 cast will air later this year. Additionally, Love is Blind: Brazil Season 2 will also air later this year, while Love is Blind: Japan debuted last month.
Husband and wife duo, Nick and Vanessa Lachey, have also returned as the hosts for Season 3. The season was filmed in Dallas featuring the same formula of placing singles in “pods” where they talk without actually seeing each other.
The Ultimatum, is set to premiere on April 6 and features an all-queer cast of six different couples about to get married. Well kind of. One partner is ready, but the other is not. The unready partner is given… THE ULTIMATUM and then has eight weeks to commit to getting married or choose a new partner from the other couples.
After being a massive hit for the brand, the Australian series Love on the Spectrum is getting a U.S. version that will air later this year. The show is shot as documentary-style series about people on the autism spectrum dating.
Dated and Related, is a series described as siblings trying to help each other find “the one.
Indian Matchmaking Season 2 will also premiere in 2022, with Jewish Matchmaking coming in the future.
And, of course, Too Hot to Handle Season 4 will also be joining the lineup.
Lastly, Netflix announced that aforementioned “untitled crossover show” hosted by Nick Lachey. It what sounds like Bachelor in Paradise for Netflix franchises, it will feature stars from Too Hot to Handle, Love is Blind, The Circle, Selling Tampa, and other Netflix reality shows still looking for love.
That may be competitive dating overload for some, but it is a lifetime subscription guarantee for me.
