We’re not sure that Netflix could have predicted how well their reality series Love Is Blind would be received when they released it last month — but the reception to the show has been so great that the streaming giants have renewed the show for two more seasons.
Casting for the second season has already begun, but according to TV Line, the next season will not make it’s way to the platform until 2020 thanks to the spread of coronavirus.
Many television and movie studios across the globe have ceased production, which has infected more than 400,000 and killed over 22,000.
“It’s been incredible to see Netflix members everywhere respond to the raw, authentic stories of real people and real stakes,” Brandon Riegg, Netflix Vice President of Nonfiction Series and Comedy Specials said in a statement. “We pride ourselves on creating a favorite show for any taste, and we’re thrilled fans embraced all of these series with such enthusiasm and shared passion. We look forward to sparking more joy for our members.”
In the show, participants “dated” each other, but communication was only allowed via pods. They would then decide whether they wanted to propose — only then would they meet their new “fiances.”
The results were somewhat hit and miss. While some couples did find love, some only found it after leaving the show. Several contestants left their spouses-to-be hanging at the altar and there were tears and drama along the way.
Still, the concept was fascinating, considering that so many of us are used to dating with our eyes and with our devices.
