The streamer picked up two more seasons of Love is Blind, which returns for a third go-around this year. In addition, fans can revisit their faves from season two in the new Love is Blind: After The Altar, which is slated to bow in 2022.
Here’s the official logline for Love Is Blind‘s season 3 that will be hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey: “Singles who want to be loved for who they are, rather than what they look like, have signed up for a less conventional approach to modern dating in Dallas where they hope to meet the person they want to spend the rest of their lives with… without ever having seen them. With no distractions from the outside world, the singles talk to a stream of potential love interests and when a meaningful connection is made, they propose and then lay their eyes on their fiancé for the first time. Engaged and back in the real world, as the couples plan their wedding day, they will quickly discover whether they can turn their emotional connection into a physical one before the fast-approaching ceremony. This addictive 10-part series will uncover whether it looks, race or age do matter, or if love is really blind. ”
Indian Matchmaking is not only returning for a second season this year, but a third installment has already been ordered for later. Matchmaker Sima Taparia is expected to return in the Emmy-nominated series from Industrial Media’s The Intellectual Property Corporation (IPC), LLC and executive producers Aaron Saidman, Eli Holzman, Smriti Mundhra, and JC Begley

Here’s the description of that new confection: “Singles from Netflix reality shows have done some crazy things to find love. But they’re still single.
