Popular Netflix series Love Is Blind has officially been renewed for two more seasons, meaning a lot more lucky singles will be partnered together to hopefully find holy matrimony – and better yet, we get some good television in the process.
Netflix confirmed the exciting news on their official Twitter account, with a funny meme of season one contestant Amber crying with the caption “When you find out that Love Is Blind has been renewed for a third season”.

The streaming service then confirmed that not only had a second season been confirmed, but a third had also been renewed, meaning there’s a LOT more episodes coming for eager fans. What do new episodes mean? Chances for you or your single friends to even take part on the show yourselves.
Before the renewal announcement, show runner Chris Coelen spoke to Entertainment Tonight about his hopes for season two and revealed a key detail that makes it very likely we’ll hear some more information soon.
“The pods still exist,” Coelen teased about the futuristic rooms that were built on a custom-designed set in Atlanta, Georgia. “They’re ready to go! For many versions to come and hopefully people around the world spending time in the pods.”
The pods he refers to are where the contestants first ‘met’ each other online; falling in love and getting engaged before meeting in person – and hoped to get married just 38 days later.
At the end of season one, only two couples had managed to stay together and get married; Amber and Barnett and Lauren and Cameron both had their nuptials screened on the show.
Still, a 2/13 chance of finding the love of your life might well be worth it!
We’ve yet to hear official confirmation from Netflix that the show will be returning, but we imagine they’ll want to get a good return on the custom built pods.
Plus, the show has been a smash hit; trending on Twitter and being heavily promoted by Netflix on the main screen.
As soon as a second series is confirmed, we expect Netflix to reveal details on how you can sign up to be a contestant on the show.
As we have little information about season two yet there’s not much else to speculate on – except that we cannot wait for the show to return.
The reality series is a step into a new direction for Netflix and is a direct competitor with Love Island when it comes to UK viewership.
All 10 episodes of Love Is Blind are out now.
