While our favorite quarantine shows are making a comeback (Tiger King 2 released in November 2022 and Too hot to handle coming out later this month), we’re reminded that in these trying times, all that really matters is true love. Okay, maybe gossiping about reality show contestants on the internet could be #2 on the list after love. The messy, strangely addictive Netflix series, Love is blind, is back for a season 2. More hopeless romantics are being put into “pods” that isolate them from the outside world to speed-date other singles, hoping to get married by the time Netflix asks you if you’re still looks. Once a participant has accepted a proposal, they can see their future spouse for the first time as they plan their upcoming wedding. The show has two successful relationships from their first season that led to “I do” at the altar. But the show also left the contestants heartbroken and alone at the altar.
While the streamer hasn’t given any details on how or if this new season’s format will be different from the previous one, we do know that it was released in Chicago rather than Atlanta. Still hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey, episodes will roll out each week starting Friday, February 11 just before Valentine’s Day, with five episodes to start with. The final episode will air on February 25, giving viewers plenty of time to decide whether love is blind or only seen through a camera lens.
