If you turned into the glitchy (and particularly messy) season 4 reunion special, you are not alone! Millions of people around the world also sat down to watch. And you’ll all be happy to know that the streaming hit has been renewed for a fifth season!
The show was renewed for a total of five seasons after the season 2 premiere date back in 2022.
Here’s everything we know about the upcoming season:
While Netflix has not yet announced an air date, we might be lucky enough to see the show as early as later this year. Season’s 2 and 3 both premiered in 2022, with only seven months between them.
And although they’ve recently come under fire for their awkward and pointed hosting of the reunion special, it looks like Nick and Vanessa Lachey will be back as hosts. This is proving to be an unpopular move, as a petition has come about to replace the couple. Libby Cross started the “Remove Nick and Vanessa Lachey as the Hosts of Love is Blind” petition, which has now received upward of 34,000 signatures. The petition says that the recent reunion special “felt very forced, rehearsed and ingenuine [sic] regardless of any editing that they did. The hosts showed bias towards certain contestants which felt like an obvious manipulation of the viewer to dislike certain contestants.”
However, and maybe most excitingly, Nick Lachey has confirmed that season 5 has already been filmed! He said, “We’ve filmed five seasons. Every single one has been so different from the others, so that’s what makes it interesting, what makes it intriguing for us allows us to approach every single season with a fresh attitude and fresh perspective.”
It’s still a mystery as to where the next season will be taking place. So far the show has been set in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, and Seattle.
Any guesses on where the next group of singles will hail from?
