If The Bachelor has proven anything, we as people love, love as well a messy good time. Netflix has shown that while yes, we love a mess we as an audience also want to see a true connection and root for love!
Over the past few years, Netflix entered the dating scene with Love is Blind, Too Hot to Handle, Indian Matchmaking, as well as Love on the Spectrum. And now the streaming platform has announced that they have renewed Love is Blind through season 5 AND have set a year-round reality romance slate!
WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM NETFLIX’S YEAR-ROUND ROMANCE AGENDA
Love is Blind took the dating reality world by storm when it premiered in 2020. The show poses the question, is love actually blind by putting hopefuls into solo pods where they cannot see the person they are talking to. After a handful of dates, potentials can propose to the person whose personality they have fallen in love with. Only then will they see each other for the first time
Season 1 proved the idea around Love is Blind actually works. The majority of the couples who made it to the altar are still together and happily married. Season 2, didn’t work out quite as well, but we did get 2 marriages that are still together and working it out. However, we now have 3 more seasons to look forward to.
Season 3 takes us to love hopefuls in Dallas. There’s no premiere date yet, but hopefully, we’ll get one soon. If you need to get your Love is Blind fix, check out Love is Blind: Brazil and Love is Blind: Japan.
Premiering on April 6th is The Ultimatum is a brand new reality dating series. Six different couples, on the verge of marriage. One partner is ready to get married, the other isn’t quite as sure. An ultimatum is issued – and in just over eight weeks, they must commit to marriage, or move on. In the meantime, each will choose a new potential partner from one of the other couples, in a life-changing opportunity to get a glimpse of two different possible futures.
Season 1 will be 8 episodes long. Season 2 will feature all-queer couples.
LOVE ON THE SPECTRUM
One of my favorite love shows is Love on the Spectrum. The series is an insightful and warm-hearted docu-reality series following people on the autism spectrum as they navigate the world of dating and relationships. The Australian series won multiple awards and now a US-based series is joining the search for love. Premiering later this year, the US-based series tells the stories of a unique and diverse cast of characters searching for something we all hope to find, love.
DATED AND RELATED
In this brand-new reality dating series, pairs of siblings will be seeing each other’s love life up close and personal as they search for ‘the one’ together. Having a person who knows you better than anyone should help you navigate the tricky world of dating. But will they act as the ultimate wingman and help you find love? Or scupper your plans and call you out on all your bullsh*t? Either way, it might just be Awkward. As. Hell.
The Emmy®-nominated dating series that sparked conversations around the world will return for two more seasons. Matchmaker Sima Taparia returns to help some familiar faces and new singletons across the globe who have decided that it’s time to put their love lives in the hands of the expert. Season two premieres this year, season three is coming soon.
A new series from the producers of Indian Matchmaking, Jewish Matchmaking features singles in the US and Israel as they turn their dating life over to a top Jewish matchmaker. Will using the traditional practice of shidduch help them find their soulmate in today’s world?
TOO HOT TO HANDLE
Season 4 of the hit dating show is coming soon. So, that means It’s time to meet a brand new batch of horned-up hellraisers who have just arrived for what they think will be the sexiest vacation of their lives. But with Lana watching, will this wild cast be able to stick to the rules and abstain from any kind of sexual contact (or self-gratification) in order to form meaningful connections, and keep that prize money as high as their sex drives?
WHAT HAPPENS TO UNLUCKY HOPEFULS?
Have you ever asked yourself, what happens to those who don’t find love on these shows? Never fear, Netflix has them covered.
