Ever since the fifth season of Love Is Blind hit Netflix in September, it has delivered on the drama. From juicy love triangles and shocking prior relationships to incredibly awkward vacations and confusing fashion choices, fans couldn’t stop talking about the latest chapter of the reality dating show.

But is the series coming back for yet another season? Here’s what we know so far about Love Is Blind season 6.

Has Netflix renewed Love Is Blind for season 6?

In March 2022, Netflix renewed the series for seasons 4 and 5, both of which have now aired. Since then, the show’s popularity has only become more and more apparent, and on December 12, 2023, Netflix announced two more seasons of Love Is Blind are on the way. Season 6 is set to premiere, naturally, on Valentine’s Day: February 14, 2024.

When will season 6 of Love Is Blind air?

Season 6 is set to premiere, naturally, on Valentine’s Day: February 14, 2024.

This release date follows the pattern of previous seasons: Season 3 dropped on Netflix in October 2022, with season 4 arriving in March 2023 and season 5 in September 2023. In keeping with that (approximately seasonal) schedule, late winter is the perfect time for season 6.

Where will future seasons take place?

Even before Netflix officially announced Love Is Blind’s sixth season, the show was actively casting for new contestants via its production company, Kinetic Content. A casting call posted in September 2022 encouraged applicants from Charlotte, North Carolina, Washington, D.C., Tampa, Florida, and Detroit, Michigan to apply. Yet another casting call was posted in March 2023, this time asking people to apply if they lived in Minneapolis–Saint Paul, Minnesota and Denver, Colorado. Finally, another call-out from Kinetic Content, posted in August 2023, added Phoenix, Arizona and Nashville, Tennessee to the list.

Ultimately, Charlotte, North Carolina, came away as the winner, and will serve as the setting for season 6.

Who will appear on the next season of Love Is Blind?

The season 6 cast has yet to be announced. Kinetic Content has been actively casting for future seasons of the show, meaning that just about anybody could apply to be a contestant. Industry publication Backstage shared details of the Love Is Blind application process, which starts out with an online application form.

As for who they’re hoping to cast on the show, Love Is Blind creator Chris Coelen told Entertainment Weekly in September 2023, “We want a big enough diversity of people, so we tend to go for bigger metropolitan areas just because you find more people there.”

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in July 2023, Coelen also revealed that he was toying with the idea of producing a queer version of the series in the future. “Sure, I’d love to,” he told the publication. “But you have to think about the logistics of a show. You don’t want it to be knee-jerk.” He continued, “In the straight version of Love Is Blind, you’ve got all the men here and all the women there. Now imagine it was an entirely queer cast. You wouldn’t produce it the same way. You couldn’t. Everyone would need to be isolated.”

For now, at least, we have Valentine’s Day to look forward to.
