Love Is Blind Creator '100 Percent' Wants Netflix To Make More
The creator of Netflix's bizarre sort-of dating show Love Is Blind has revealed he '100 percent' wants to see more of the show, providing the streaming service powers-that-be will allow it - and is even up for the prospect of a UK edition, too.
If you're uninitiated into the Love Is Blind world, here's the basic gist of it.
The show aims to find love for folks who want to be loved for 'who they are, rather than what they look like'.
Sounds fair enough, right?
After speaking to a load of prospective partners without being able to see one another - not dissimilar to Blind Date - contestants are finally allowed to see one another once there has been a proposal.
Yes, a marriage proposal.
They then plan a wedding together and see if they can actually forge a meaningful relationship.
Anyway, Chris Coelen, the show's creator, wants to see more televised marital madness after the runaway success of season one.
He told OprahMag that he '100 percent' wants the show to return.
Coelen added: "I want to see a season 2 or a season 12. Don't you?"
The Metro also caught up with Coelen recently, as he not only echoed those hopes for another season, but also revealed there's a good chance Brits could get their own version of the show as well.
"We're certainly talking about [season 2], yeah," he said.
"I think it's safe to say we'll be seeing people put to the test of whether love is blind well into the future. That's what I would certainly hope for."
When asked specifically about the chances of a UK edition, he said: "Absolutely! One hundred percent yes. Let's make it happen, I'd love it."
The early reaction from the internet would suggest the people are keen for more.
Fans have been singing the show's praises. One wrote: "Started watching Love is Blind and I'm at a loss for words... The concept? The chaos? [...] *chefs kiss* sensational."
Another wrote: "These people on Love is Blind just said I love you to each other through a pod AND I AM LOSING IT THIS SHOW IS CHAOS."
If you want a better picture of what it is all about, here's a synopsis from Netflix: "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 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."
It continues: "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 or age do matter, or if love really is blind."
Interested? Well, you know where to find it.
LADbible has reached out to Netflix for comment regarding the possibility of a second series of Love is Blind. The first series is available to stream on Netflix now.
