Get ready to say "I do" to Love Is Blind season 2 because Netflix has finally set a release date for the buzzy dating show's return — and it's just weeks away!
In February 2020, Love Is Blind got a lot of attention for its insane premise, which sees couples meet and get engaged before they ever see each other. Season 1's wedding finale episode saw two couples (Lauren and Cameron, Amber and Barnett) get married.
A spinoff special, Love Is Blind: After the Altar, followed up on the season 1 cast members and checked in with Lauren/Cameron and Amber/Barnett to see how marriage was treating them (very well, it turns out).
Fans have waited for two years for another installment of the series and their patience will soon be rewarded. While we don't have a cast list yet, we do know that Vanessa and Nick Lachey return as hosts.

Love Is Blind season 2 release date
Netflix has set the Love Is Blind season 2 release date for February 11 — just in time for Valentine's Day.
Like the first season, season 2 episodes will be released in batches. The first five episodes drop February 11, followed four more episodes on February 18, then the big wedding finale on February 25.
Oh, and in even better news, Netflix already ordered Love Is Blind season 3. Let's hope it doesn't take two years to come out.
Love Is Blind season 2 teaser trailer
"The pods are officially open!" announces Vanessa Lachey to kick off the Love Is Blind season 2 teaser trailer. That's followed by quick glimpses of excited singles entering the pods.
The video also provides snippets of the singles talking about their hopes for the experience. "I'm getting to know someone's heart before anything else," a man says. A woman jokes, "This experiment interests me because I don't have boobs and a butt."
Love Is Blind season 2 location and cast
Love Is Blind moved from Atlanta in season 1 to Chicago for season 2.
As Netflix's official synopsis reads, "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 in Chicago 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."
So who are these singles? Well, we have no idea because Netflix hasn't release a cast list yet. But we're rooting for more beautiful connections like Lauren and Cameron.
How does Love Is Blind work?
Love Is Blind puts a serious twist on the typical dating reality series. It's like the love child of The Bachelor meets Married at First Sight. Netflix puts a group of men and women through a speed dating process — but nobody can physically see each other. Instead, a man and woman enter connected pods and talk to each other through a wall.
The initial dates last seven to 10 minutes, but after that, the cast members have total control. They can choose who to go on more dates with and how long to spend time with them.
Then, after the period of pod dating, a single can propose to someone. If he or she accepts, they can finally meet face to face.
After that, engaged couples go to Mexico for a romantic vacation. They stay at the same resort, so they are forced to meet some of the other people they dated during their time in the pods.
Once the vacation is over, the couples move into the same apartment complex. Each engaged couple gets used to living with each other, meet their partner’s family and friends and learn more information about their backgrounds and finances.
Then comes the wedding day, when each couple faces each other at the altar and decide to get married or break up.
In Love Is Blind season 2, we'd like to see a longer season that follows more couples. Fun fact: During season 1, eight couples got engaged but the show only focused on six (the two couples who weren't included didn't end up getting married).
