Get ready to binge more reality TV next year as Netflix announced it has renewed breakout hits The Circle and Love Is Blind for two more seasons each, with new episodes set to premiere in 2021.
The news of renewal should not surprise anyone. The streaming service struck gold as its reality competition shows were an instant hit with fans, trending across all social media platforms as soon as they launched.
“It’s been incredible to see Netflix members everywhere respond to the raw, authentic stories of real people and real stakes,” Brandon Rieggs, Netflix Vice President of Nonfiction Series and Comedy Specials, said in a statement. “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.”
The Circle is a social media competition show that allows the contestants to either play as themselves or catfish their way to the $100,000 prize. The new year will see new players enter the apartments as Michelle Buteau returns as host.
Love Is Blind saw singles enter those infamous pods which do not allow them to see each other as there is a wall between them. Last season, a couple met and got engaged all within three days and yes, it was as messy as it sounds. Nick and Vanessa Lachey are back as the hosts for Season 2.
Are you happy to see the shows back? I know I am! Let me know in the comments below.
The Circle and Love Is Blind are currently available to stream on Netflix.
