Netflix commissions 2 new seasons of ‘Love is Blind’ from Kinetic Content
March 25, 2020
Kinetic Content, a Red Arrow Studios company, has been commissioned by Netflix to produce two new seasons of its global smash hit series Love is Blind.
Is love blind? Season one’s emotional roller coaster proved it can be for some, but hosts Vanessa and Nick Lachey will ask the question again as new singles prepare to enter the pods for the dating experiment’s second season.
Season Two is currently casting in Chicago, with Season Three to follow. Executive Producers for the show are Chris Coelen, Sam Dean, Ally Simpson, Eric Detwiler and Brian Smith for Kinetic Content.
Love Is Blind has proved to be a global sensation for Netflix since its February 13 launch. The 10-episode show was the Number One title on the service in multiple territories around the world including the United States, the UK, Germany, Australia and Canada, and continues to rank in the Top Ten in most countries.
The show’s two-hour finale on February 27 and reunion special on March 5 generated worldwide media coverage and attracted large audiences to the service.
Chris Coelen, CEO of Kinetic Content, said: “We’re grateful for how Love Is Blind has resonated so strongly with audiences across the world, and we’re truly thrilled that our partners at Netflix have provided us the opportunity to give more people this chance to explore whether love can truly be blind.”
In Love is Blind, singles who want to be loved for who they are, rather than what they look like, have signed up for a less conventional approach to modern dating where they hope to meet the person they want to spend the rest of their lives with…without ever having seen them.
With no distractions from the outside world, the singles talk to a stream of potential love interests and when a meaningful connection is made, they propose and then lay their eyes on their fiancé for the first time. Engaged and back in the real world, as the couples plan their wedding day, they will quickly discover whether they can turn their emotional connection into a physical one before the fast-approaching ceremony. Hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey, this addictive series uncovers whether looks, race or age do matter, or if love really is blind.
Alongside Love is Blind, Kinetic produces an impressive range of stand-out programming including the groundbreaking series Married at First Sight, which is in its tenth season and attracting series-high ratings, and with season 11 commissioned; Friends Speak, which has been the highest-rated program on Reelz for each of the past two years; Lifetime’s number two and number three highest-rated series, the highly successful Little Women: Atlanta and Little Women: LA; the worldwide smash Seven Year Switch, with three seasons on Lifetime in the US, plus localized versions in territories around the globe; Discovery’s much buzzed-about Man vs. Bear; Bravo’s Spy Games; and Lifetime’s Bride & Prejudice: Forbidden Love, which launched its second season on Lifetime last month, and has already spawned a hit localized version in Australia.
