Love is blind

Hosts Drew and Vanessa Lachey are back for a sixth season of Love Is Blind

Love is in the air, and for these singles, it’s as blind as ever. With drama, romance, relationships and a new crate of its infamous wine glasses, Netflix’s Love Is Blind returns with an all-new season of this oh-so-addictive reality romance series.

As with previous seasons, veteran co-hosts and real-life couple Nick and Vanessa Lachey (also hosts of Netflix’s The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On) will lead a group of singles through this unique social experiment, in which they meet with a slew of potential partners in the hopes of finding their one true love and heading to the altar.

The catch, of course, is that this over-the-top game of speed dating leaves the singles totally blind, stuck in isolated pods that leave them unable to see the other people they are talking to. To make a connection, they must rely solely on conversation alone, and anyone interested in more must propose marriage to their “match” before meeting face-to-face.

“A brand-new pod squad is about to capture your attention (and dominate your group chats), when 30 eligible singles step into the experiment to risk it all for love. Ranging from 25 to 37 years old, this new group is ready to be loved for who they are — and not for what they look like on the outside,” explained a press release via Netflix’s Tudum.

This season’s cast includes two flight attendants, a middle school principal, a salesman with a DJ side hustle and a former three-sport athlete turned makeup artist. As always, each single is looking to cut through the static of modern dating and form authentic relationships.

“This season, the singles form deep and immediate connections, setting the stage for an unexpected journey full of twists, turns and shocking revelations that will test each relationship well after the participants leave the pods for the real world,” added the release.

For the show’s married hosts, Love Is Blind has proven to be instructive about their own spousal relationship. “What we constantly talk about learning is how important communication is. Yes, it is so cliché. Yes, it is so, like, ‘Oh, we’ve heard it before.’ Well, then use it,” Vanessa Lachey told E! News.

“If people really turn towards each other and comunicate, you will find that a lot of misunderstandings will get resolved,” she added. “You will find that nobody’s a mind reader and you can actually really hear your partner out and understand where they’re coming from and maybe help cater to that.”

Starting with the release of the season’s first six episodes, new instalments will be released every following Wednesday, chronicling the budding pod-made relationships as they navigate the real world and plan for their upcoming weddings. The season culminates with the remaining couple’s nuptials, and then, as with previous seasons, welcomes all pairings back for a final reunion episode, this time streaming on Wednesday, March 6.
