Netflix is going in on its unscripted programming, renewing Rhythm + Flow, giving Marie Kondo a new series and granting Love is Blind and The Circle two more seasons.
“It’s been incredible to see Netflix members everywhere respond to the raw, authentic stories of real people and real stakes,” Brandon Riegg, Netflix Vice President of Nonfiction Series and Comedy Specials, said in a statement. “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.”
That Love Is Blind and The Circle are receiving two more seasons isn’t a big surprise, as both were major hits for the streamer.
Love is Blind in particular took the nation by storm, becoming Netflix’s top show in the U.S. at the end of February — only two weeks after its launch. The show asks whether or not people can fall in love without seeing each other first, with contestants going on dates in solo pods and connecting without seeing one another.
Love is Blind has been renewed for a second and third season and is currently casting its second season, which will be located in Chicago.
Tidying expert Marie Kondo will likewise be returning to Netflix, though instead of tidying up with her, audiences will now be Sparking Joy with Marie Kondo.
The new show will follow Marie Kondo and her team as they set out to tidy one small town in America. Viewers can currently nominate a town for Kondo’s “joy-sparking” mission through the site TidyMyTown.com.
Lastly, Netflix’s hip hop reality show Rhythm + Flow has received another season. The show will be bringing back judges Cardi B, Chance the Rapper, and Tip “T.I.” Harris as they search for the next hip-hop star.
