It’s official: “Love Is Blind” is returning.
Netflix’s outlandish and popular reality dating series — which follows couples who get engaged before they even lay eyes on each other — is coming back for both a second and third season, the streaming service announced on Tuesday.
While Season 1 took place in Atlanta, Season 2 will be in Chicago. The Season 3 location has not yet been revealed.
“Hosts Vanessa Lachey and her husband Nick Lachey (obviously) will ask the question again as new singles prepare to enter the pods for the dating experiment,” Netflix said in a statement on Tuesday. (The question, of course, is ‘Is love blind?’)
Season 1, which was 10 episodes plus a reunion special, ended with only two of the six couples making it to “I do”: fan favorites Lauren Speed, 32, and Cameron Hamilton, 28, and the drama-happy Matt Barnett, 27, and Amber Pike, 27. But there was plenty of drama to go around from the singles who didn’t make it to wedded bliss, including the sweet-natured Mark Cuevas, 25, getting ditched at the alter by the controversial Jessica Batten, 34.
The show follows the couples as they talk through a wall while in “pods,” without seeing each other, and then meet in person after getting engaged, along with vacationing together, moving-in together and meeting each other’s families — all in less than a month.
There’s no word yet on a release date for Season 2. Netflix also announced renewals for “The Circle” (renewed for Seasons 2 and 3), hip hop competition show “Rhythm and Flow” (Season 2) and a new show for “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo” sensation Marie Kondo, called “Sparking Joy with Marie Kondo.”
