Netflix’s popular reality series from Japan, Terrace House is coming back for another season but under a different name in September 2019. Here’s what you need to know.
Terrace House is a long-running reality series from Japan that Netflix co-produces. Starting from 2015, Netflix has seen multiple spin-offs of the show including the first, Boys & Girls in the City with it then proceeding to Aloha State and Opening New Doors.
The premise of the show is a mix of Big Brother and if you’re from the UK, a show called Gogglebox. It sees strangers move into a house together but has people also watching and commenting on what they do inside the house.
Popularity of the show has soared in the West since Netflix picked it up. While it’s a reality show, it’s distinctly different from its US counterparts in that it’s calm, relaxing and a pleasure to watch.
The latest outing for Terrace House is Tokyo 2019-2020. Here’s the official synopsis of the season:
Six strangers share a fabulous house in Tokyo, looking for love while living under the same roof. With no script what happens next is up to them.
This season features a song by CHVRCHES in its opening sequence.
Terrace House: Tokyo 2019-2020 Netflix Release Date
Part 1 of the show (set to be 10 episodes) is scheduled to release on Netflix in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia and Canada on September 10th, 2019. In fact, all regions outside of Japan are now scheduled to get the new season.
A second part is expected but it’s unknown whether it’s returning this year.
The series has, in fact, been on Netflix Japan for quite some time (since May 2019, in fact). Netflix Japan got weekly episodes of the show or as most people know this, simulcast. It’s a widely criticized portion of Netflix’s strategy in the West and something YouTuber Nick Robinson recently touched on in a video.
Never the less, we’re just happy Netflix is getting the show even if it is three months after it originally aired.
It comes to Netflix as part of a stacked month for Netflix Originals for September.
