As our favorite quarantine shows make a comeback (Tiger King 2 will be released in November 2022 and Too Hot to Handle comes out later this month), we are reminded that in these trying times, the only thing that really matters is true love. Okay, maybe gossiping about reality-show contestants on the internet can be No. 2 on the list after love. The messy, strangely addicting Netflix series Love Is Blind is back again for a season two. More hopeless romantics are put into “pods” that isolate them from the outside world to speed date other singles, in hopes of getting married by the time Netflix asks you if you’re still watching. Once a contestant has accepted a proposal, they will be able to 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 contestants heartbroken and alone at the altar as well.
Netflix confirmed via press release that the upcoming season will be set in Chicago; previously the show took place in Atlanta. Described as “Will the social experiment work again?”, the official trailer teases heart-to-heart connections and left-at-the-alter moments reminiscent of last season. Still hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey, the first five episodes are out now on Netflix. The final episode airs on February 25, giving viewers plenty of time to decide if love is blind or just seen through a camera lens.
