Netflix jumped into the reality show game with both feet in 2020. After the success of programs like The Great British Baking Show and a rash of reality competition series like Blown Away and Nailed It!, the streaming service decided to then lean into more drama-heavy reality dating series. The one-two punch of Love Is Blind and Too Hot To Handle proved the format could work on streaming as well as broadcast, especially with Netflix tweaking its all-at-once drops into weekly batch releases. Now, with Too Hot To Handle Season 3 up next, it’s clear there’s no slowing down in this genre.

Too Hot To Handle Season 2 debuted in June 2021, so perhaps asking when a new season might arrive seems a bit fast. But Netflix has hinted at plans to follow the two-cycles-a-year format popularized by shows like Dancing With The Stars and The Voice. The Circle, for instance, is going biannual in 2021, releasing Season 2 in May and Season 3 in September, with Seasons 4 and 5 on deck for 2022.

But two seasons of Too Hot was too much for fans to handle in 2021. Netflix was not quite ready to overload viewers with too much too soon, although whether that’s a good or bad thing is debatable. But the heat will be back right when viewers could use a little warming up.

Too Hot To Handle Season 3 Trailer

Netflix waited almost until the holidays; the first teaser for Season 3 finally arrived on Dec. 14, 2021. Although the trailer doesn’t contain any footage of the new cast, it promises a mid-January arrival for the new season.

If Too Hot To Handle Season 3 follows the same rollout as the first two seasons, viewers will have to wait until a couple of weeks before the new season’s debut to meet the new contestants.

Netflix is big on keeping these sorts of details quiet until the series is nearly ready to arrive, primarily because Too Hot To Handle is already known to cross over contestants to and from other series. For instance, Chloe Veitch from THTH Season 1 ended up on The Circle Season 2. So, could someone from The Circle cross back for THTH Season 3? Hopefully, they can handle the heat if they do.

Too Hot To Handle Season 3 Release Schedule

The batch drop format is the most crucial thing about Too Hot To Handle (and its other reality show counterparts). Like GBBO and other reality competitions, Too Hot To Handle benefits from a slower rollout, during which fans can spend the weeks between episodes discussing their favorite contestants and what might happen next.

Although Netflix has revealed the show’s premiere date, the specific rollout format remains under wraps. Season 1 released eight of nine in April 2020, followed by the finale a month later in May; Season 2 changed it up with the first four episodes arriving on June 23, 2021, followed by the other six a week later. Whatever the schedule, fans can be pretty sure only part of the season will come in mid-January. Hopefully, Netflix will reveal the rest of the plan soon.

Too Hot To Handle Season 3 Release Date

Too Hot To Handle Season 3 debuts Jan. 19, 2022. Seasons 1 and 2 are streaming on Netflix.
