Love is Blind is the latest reality television smash-hit for Netflix, and has been the most popular title in many regions for the past few weeks since its release in February 2020. Season 2 of Love is Blind is almost certainly on the way but we haven’t yet heard the official future of the reality series. Here’s the latest on season 2 of the dating reality series with some other snippets and information about the future of Love is Blind.
Just to recap, Love is Blind is a dating reality series that uses elements of other dating shows and combines them into a new package that works perfectly on a streaming platform. Love is Blind was released in three stages with the ultimate conclusion coming in the form of ‘The Wedding’ episode.
Has Love is Blind been renewed for season 2?
Official renewal status: Pending (last updated: 03/03/2020)
Despite the massive media attention Love is Blind has amassed, and the fact the series has featured in the top 10 most popular titles on Netflix every day since its release, a renewal has yet to be given.
We’re certain Love is Blind will be renewed, it’s just slightly too early for Netflix, who typically can take up to a month to make decisions.
Speaking to Metro, Chris Coelen who serves as the showrunner said:
“We’re certainly talking about [season 2]. I think it’s safe to say we’ll be seeing people put to the test of whether love is blind well into the future.”
Added to this, Chris also said:
“I hope and believe that we’ll be doing many seasons of this in the future… I think it’s something people all around the globe can resonate with.”
Decider notes that a second season would likely follow a similar format but likely will see the contestants from a different state (as opposed to Atlanta as seen in season 1).
Kinetic Casting will probably be the first way we find out about a second season. They’ll post the casting call via their social media pages in due course (should it get renewed).
Now let’s take a look at the direction the series could take.
Love is Blind: Reunion – when will it be on Netflix?
First, of all, Netflix hasn’t finished with the first season just yet.
Despite the wedding episode being aired, there’s still more to come from season 1 with a final sendoff. It’s being dubbed the Love is Blind: Reunion.
It’ll see all the contestants and participants from season 1 return in a studio setting to talk about their experience on the show and perhaps more importantly, detail whether they’ve remained together.
The reunion will be on Netflix’s YouTube channel in full on March 5th, 2020.
Love is Blind UK & other regional variants could be on the cards
One other thing to note is that regional spinoffs could arrive on Netflix too.
Netflix has made a habit of producing regional variants of its reality series. The Circle and Nailed It! are great examples, the former has its own series in Brazil, meanwhile Nailed It! has been produced all around Europe and even Mexico.
In the interview we mentioned above, the showrunner (Chris Coelen) confirmed that he’s onboard for a UK variant but has yet to be confirmed.
Also, SNL just recently did a skit involving the Netflix reality series featuring John Mulaney that’s well worth your time.
