Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo-Lachey in 'Love Is Blind' Season 2

Meet The Love Is Blind Season 2 Cast

They're taking over the pods.

Originally Published: 

One of Netflix’s most unhinged and entertaining reality dating shows is officially coming back — and soon. The streaming service announced Love Is Blind Season 2 back in March 2020, and after almost a two-year wait, it will finally arrive in February 2022. Let’s run down everything to know about the new batch of episodes.

The original season of Love Is Blind swept the internet when it hit Netflix in early 2020. The concept itself was fascinating: Contestants had to get to know one another and decide to get engaged before ever seeing each other, and then immediately went on to live with one another and decide to either get married or leave their partner at the altar. But even more intriguing were its contestants, with whom audiences immediately fell in love (or, in some cases, love-to-hate).

Some of the couples from Season 1 didn’t make it through to the end; some individuals didn’t make it out of the pods, while others got all the way to their wedding day before deciding to call it off. But two of them are still going strong to this day: Amber Pike and Matt Barnett, and Lauren Speed and Cameron Hamilton. So, will Season 2 produce similar results? Fans will just have to wait and see.
