Just seven months after “Love Is Blind” returned for another round of mystery dating, the hit reality TV series is back to introduce a new group of singles looking for love. On Sept. 14, Netflix released the first look at season three, which takes place in Dallas, and followed it up with a full trailer on Oct. 6. While there seems to be plenty of romance — and marriage proposals — in store, there’s also a high dose of drama. Asks host Vanessa Lachey at the end of the trailer, “Is love truly blind?”

Love Is Blind” wrapped up its second season with a reunion that premiered on March 4 of this year. Months after filming, the season two cast reunited for an “After the Alter” special, which began streaming on Sept. 16, to give updates on the status of their friendships and relationships. Since then, two couplesIyanna and Jarrette, and Danielle and Nick — have filed for divorce after one year of marriage. Additionally, all other couples from the season are no longer together as most of them ended their relationships in the season two finale.

In an interview with Netflix’s Tudum, creator Chris Coelen responded to all the “Love Is Blind” splits. “I don’t personally measure the success of the show based on whether people stay together or don’t stay together,” he said. “From a producer standpoint, from a story standpoint, I don’t want [the participants] to think at all about the show.”

“Love Is Blind” exploded onto the reality TV scene when it premiered in early 2020, as the show’s unique premise — singles “meeting” while isolated in pods and not being able to see each other’s faces — brought in all the buzz. After the way things went down in season two, we’re already antsy about what to expect for season three. But Netflix must’ve sensed the craze behind “Love Is Blind,” because on March 24 the streamer renewed the series for seasons four and five!

Prior to the series’s renewal news, Brandon Riegg, Netflix’s vice president of nonfiction series and comedy specials, issued a statement about the show’s massive success. “It’s been incredible to see Netflix members everywhere respond to the raw, authentic stories of real people and real stakes,” he said after the series was renewed for season two. “We pride ourselves on creating a favorite show for any taste, and we’re thrilled fans embraced all of these series with such enthusiasm and shared passion. We look forward to sparking more joy for our members.”

Season three of “Love Is Blind” was filmed right after season two, so the new cast didn’t have much experience with the social experiment — meaning they didn’t see Deepti‘s “I’m choosing myself” moment/breakup with Shake or Shayne and Natalie’s complicated relationship in season two prior to filming.

Even though “Love Is Blind” already has its next three seasons queued up, the Netflix series is likely to keep going as long as there’s continued interest. “I want to see a season 2 or a season 12,” Coelen told OprahMag.com. “Don’t you?” Coelen said he’d be “100 percent” on board for “season 15 and season 20,” as a matter of fact.
