When it comes to some of the most popular reality TV shows, what are some of the first that come to mind? I’m sure in the past, we could all think of one, whether that be '90s kids and all of their favorite MTV shows that kept popping up (like 16 & Pregnant) or maybe for modern day reality TV watchers, Keeping Up With The Kardashians is something you relate to. But for me, for a few years now, it has been Love Is Blind.
The show, which has gone on for three seasons and inspired so much drama as time has gone on, from certain relationships happening after the show to participants getting called out, the series has certainly cemented itself in reality TV show history. Not only is it one of the most popular dating shows on Netflix, it’s probably one of the most popular dating reality shows overall, as it’s always trending whenever the new episodes come out.
Season 3 came to an end in 2022, and now, we can look forward to the next part of our journey – that’s right, Love Is Blind Season 4. For some of the questions you possibly have about the upcoming fourth season, here are some things we know about the next installment of the series.
When Is The Love Is Blind: Season 4 Release Date?
We can happily say that Season 4 of Love Is Blind is set to be back on Netflix on March 24th, 2023, and we can safely add this awesome show to our 2023 TV schedule. This news came with a date announcement trailer that was posted to YouTube, and Variety confirmed that the first five episodes of the show would air on that date, and new episodes will continue to air weekly on Fridays. The season will have a total of 12 episodes.
It’s been known for some time that Love Is Blind was already renewed for Season 4. This was announced by the streamer before Season 3 even premiered, in March 2022.
Season 4 Is Going To Take Place In Seattle
As confirmed in Variety’s article on the episode release schedule, the new city that we are heading to is Seattle, Washington. It had already been confirmed that the show was going to a new place from the press release, but now, we can happily say where exactly it is going to be.
For those that need a bit of a reminder as to where we’ve been, the three seasons have covered Atlanta, Chicago, and Dallas so far – with Dallas being the most recent.
It seems that Love Is Blind has jumped all over the country in terms of where their love stories are set, even though they all begin in the pods (which have been in California since Season 2) that have become so iconic to the series.
While I was hoping the show was going to end up becoming one of the best shows that take place in New York City, I can deal with Seattle as our next spot. Hopefully, it’ll be just as dramatic as the last three seasons.
Season 4 Is Also Going To Have More Diversity, According To Nick Lachey
A big issue that a lot of fans of the series have talked about is how it feels that there really isn’t that much diversity within Love Is Blind. But, thankfully, Nick Lachey was also quick to confirm that diversity is something that they are avidly working for in the show and fans can expect to see a lot more of it in Season 4 (and other seasons beyond that):
This interview was done a few days after the first four episodes of Season 3 premiered, and fans were introduced to several interesting pairs of couples from different backgrounds and personalities, such as Alexa, who was the show’s first plus-size cast member to become engaged on camera, as well as SK, who is of Nigerian descent, so I can certainly see the show moving in directions that seem to be heading in a more diverse route.
However, I do think the show has some way to go before it really is completely diverse. But, we’ll see how they do as time goes on. If you want a glance at who the cast is going to be, be sure to check out the latest video from Netflix down below -- featuring the stars of the new season and their answers to various dating questions:
Season 4 Has Been Filmed Completely
This might be a bit of a shocker, but Season 4 of Love Is Blind has actually already been filmed, if you can believe it.
In an interview that co-hosts Nick and Vanessa Lachey did with Women’s Health Magazine, Nick was quick to confirm that the show is only going to get more unpredictable as it goes on, revealing that they had shot multiple seasons already:
That also confirms that the next season of the show has been filmed too, which leads us into our last bit of news.
It’s Already Been Renewed For Season 5
This is more of a fun fact that you should know before Season 4, but guess what? We’re already getting Season 5 of the show. At the time of the press release, Love Is Blind was already confirmed for both Seasons 4 and 5.
That’s right, we’re going to be getting double the drama – or, I guess quintuple the drama? I’m not sure.
What are you looking forward to with Love Is Blind Season 4? Are you excited for the next group of couples? Or do you need something else a little less dramatic to watch in the meantime? I’d suggest checking out Love On The Spectrum – certainly a great Netflix dating show, and a nice change of pace while we wait for Season 4 of Love Is Blind.
