We first experienced Love is Bind literally a pandemic ago. Back when everything was shutting down and we were confined to our houses, that’s right around when Love is Blind Season 1 was coming out. Like everyone, I experienced the highs and lows, the Jessica and the Lauren/Cameron love, while trying to avoid …well, the outside world. Which begs the question of …will we find Season 2 as interesting today?
Not that we’re out of the pandemic. But we are in a different moment of it. Will be looking at the show as a distraction, or will we nitpick more. Is love truly blind? Do we believe it is?
The answers are coming, and they’re coming soon. Netflix already released a teaser of Season 2, confirmed the cast and released both a full trailer, and a few official pictures.
First, here’s the teaser:
Netflix fan-favorite series LOVE IS BLIND is back! 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. Hosted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey, this addictive 10-part series will uncover whether looks, race or age do matter, or if love really is blind.

To be honest, at this point, we all need a little distraction. And this sounds like the perfect one. I’m in, and I’m ready to enjoy/hate every second of the second season, just like I did with the first. And though I might still not be sold on the idea that love is blind, I will entertain it for a while. Why not?
The first five episodes of Love is Blind Season 2 will be released on Netflix February 11th, with episodes 6-9 released on February 18th, and Episode 10 on February 25th.
