We’re finally getting another season of Love Is Blind. Netflix announced in a press release that Season 2 of the wildly popular reality dating series will debut in February 2022, two years after the show originally premiered. An exact release date has not yet been announced, but if it follows in the footsteps of Season 1, you can expect it to drop around Valentine’s Day.
The news comes over a year after Netflix announced that Love Is Blind has been renewed for Seasons 2 and 3 and put up their first casting call for singles. Given that the daters are each isolated in their own rooms, the format of the show is relatively suited for the coronavirus pandemic. However, Love Is Blind co-host Vanessa Lachey said in an interview with HollywoodLife in March that it took the production team some time to figure out how to safely film the latter part of the season, when couples go on vacation, meet each other’s families, and ultimately walk down the aisle. “They’re in pods and bubble pods for the first two weeks, but they then typically get out of the pods and there’s a lot of physical connection that’s part of the show,” she said. “Then we go back to the hometown and see if the family and friend connection match the love connection.”
Eventually, she said, they found a way to safely film. There haven’t been any announcements about the cast, let alone a trailer, but we know do know Season 1 switched up the location: whereas Season 1 was filmed in Atlanta, Season 2 shot in Chicago. Those eager for more Love Is Blind content can catch up on Love Is Blind: After the Altar, the three-part reunion special with the Season 1 cast that hit Netflix in July — and brought plenty of drama with it. Too Hot to Handle star Chloe Veitch also tried her hand at the pods in a new YouTube video, meeting cast members from The Circle, Too Hot to Handle, and Bling Empire.
Beyond that, rest assured that there is plenty more Love Is Blind content on the way. Series creator Chris Coelen wants to continue making the show for as long as he possibly can. “I want to see a Season 2 or a Season 12,” he told Oprah magazine ahead of the Season 2 renewal. “Don't you?”
