Netflix Renews ‘Love Is Blind’, ‘The Circle’, and More Bingeable Reality Shows

     March 24, 2020


Netflix has given hit reality TV shows Love Is BlindThe Circle, and Rhythm + Flow the renewal green light as well as ordering up a new series from Marie Kondo called Sparking Joy. The reality TV portion of Netflix’s vast streaming kingdom has been slowly growing in recent years, with the success of Love Is Blind and The Circle further cementing the genre’s success established by shows like Tidying Up with Marie Kondo and Queer Eye.

Now, Variety confirms Netflix is bringing back its biggest and most recent reality TV hits for even more seasons. Love Is Blind and the U.S. version of The Circle have been renewed for two seasons. Details are slim on Love Is Blind but it’s a safe bet we’ll be getting a whole slew of new singles in search of love. The first season of Love Is Blind made major waves with viewers, inspiring hilarious tweets and memes, instant stan-ships, and some very big feelings through every episode as well as the cast reunion. Meanwhile, host Michelle Buteau will be back for Season 2 of The Circle, which will also see a new group of singletons compete for $100,000. Netflix promises “new strategies, challenges, and twists are in store” for the upcoming season.

Brandon Riegg, Netflix’s VP of nonfiction series and comedy specials, shared in a statement on this mass reality TV renewal:
