Netflix Unveils Its Most Inclusive Dating-Show Lineup Yet
Netflix announced a bunch of updates regarding their dating-show lineup on March 24. To share the news, Netflix alums Matt Barnett ("Love Is Blind" season one), Jarrette Jones ("Love Is Blind" season two), Harry Jowsey ("Too Hot to Handle" season one), Nathan Webb ("Too Hot to Handle" season two), and Nathan Soan Mngomezulu ("Too Hot to Handle" season three) formed a Y2K-inspired boy band, N-2-LUV, and sang about all of the upcoming shows.
"Love has no off-season," the group sang in the chorus. 98 Degrees member Nick Lachey, who also cohosts "Love Is Blind" and "The Ultimatum," watched the video announcement from the Netflix-created boy band and joked, "I'd give it a solid 97 degrees."
The list of shows is the streaming platform's most diverse to date. "Love Is Blind: After the Altar" will allow fans to catch up with season two ahead of "Love Is Blind" season three later this year; the first season of "The Ultimatum" hasn't even aired yet, and the show's already been greenlit for a second season, which will feature a queer cast comprised of "mostly women"; a new show titled "Jewish Matchmaking" from the producers of "Indian Matchmaking" was announced; a new series titled "Dated and Related," featuring siblings who help each other find "the one," is premiering this year; "Love on the Spectrum," a docu-reality series following people on the autism spectrum dating, will also premiere this year; and an untitled series hosted by Lachey will have all the singles from Netflix reality shows "Too Hot to Handle," "Love Is Blind," The Circle," "Selling Tampa," and more try to find their perfect match among each other.
As for more Netflix series that have been renewed, "Love Is Blind" is getting a fourth and fifth season, "The Ultimatum" is coming back with a second season, "Indian Matchmaking" was renewed for a third season, and "Too Hot to Handle" is coming back for season four. It's a lot to take in! But fans of dating reality shows will have their plates full with content. Seriously, don't even bother to put the popcorn down.
