People Editorial Guidelines Published on February 1, 2022 02:36 PM Share Tweet Pin Email After a long wait, Love Is Blind fans will finally get to see a new crop of singles enter the pods. But of course, the burning question is will they discover whether love is truly blind? The series became a smash hit for Netflix following its early 2020 debut. Hosted by real-life couple Vanessa and Nick Lachey, Love Is Blind follows a group of singles' journey to finding love without ever coming face-to-face with their potential matches. "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," a synopsis from Netflix states. "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." On Tuesday, the streaming service revealed the season 2 cast in an announcement video. Shayne, a Chicago-based realtor, teases fans that they'll be "in for quite a ride" as they tune in for the 10-episode run.
