Netflix’s viral reality sensation Love Is Blind has been renewed for two more seasons, Netflix confirmed on Tuesday, March 24. The Circle has also been renewed for two more seasons, while the music competition series Rhythm + Flow was picked up for an additional cycle. And get this: Tidying Up‘s Marie Kondo is getting a brand-new show, Sparking Joy.
Love Is Blind premiered on Netflix in February 2020, and it didn’t take long for the series to take off. The show’s premise is wild: Men and women go on a series of blind dates while sitting in “pods” where they can’t see the person they’re talking to. Contestants narrow down their options until they’ve found the One. Then they get engaged, meet face-to-face for the first time, and spend the next few weeks deciding whether they’re ready to walk down the aisle.
“It’s been incredible to see Netflix members everywhere respond to the raw, authentic stories of real people and real stakes,” said Brandon Riegg, the vice president of nonfiction and comedy specials at Netflix, per the Hollywood Reporter. “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.”
