“It’s been incredible to see Netflix members everywhere respond to the raw, authentic stories of real people and real stakes,” Brandon Rieggs, Netflix Vice President of Nonfiction Series and Comedy Specials, said in a statement about the renewals. “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.”
The season renewal news comes right after Netflix saw success in early 2020 with its two new reality shows. First was The Circle, a social media reality show in which contestants have to choose to be their authentic selves to win, or can choose to try to catfish the other players. While on Valentine’s Day, Love Is Blind premiered, introducing the world to the infamous dating pods, where singles met other singles through a wall, and maybe get engaged after three days of “dating.”
In addition to the season renewal announcement, Netflix also announced the streaming service will add a new show to the mix called Sparking Joy With Marie Kondo. “In 2019, Marie Kondo’s method of tidying up changed the way the world viewed organization. In this new series, Marie and her team set out to tidy one small town in America, sparking joy in big new ways,” the show’s description reads.
Netflix is also working on a season of The Circle: France to add to The Circle franchise. Lastly, the streaming platform also plans to premiere it’s Bachelor in Paradise-type show titled Too Hot To Handle on April 17.
“10 young, hot singles from around the world come together in a seaside paradise for what they think will be the most exotic and erotic summer of their lives— but there’s a twist. These commitment-phobes who love a casual hook-up, will have to give up all hanky panky for the entire retreat if they want to win the $100,000 grand prize,” the show’s description reads.
