We now know the identities of all the romantic hopefuls of "Love Is Blind" season five. On 6 Sept., Netflix released the first look at all 28 new "Love Is Blind" cast members, and in the video, each star introduces themselves and shares a few details about what they're looking for — and definitely trying to avoid — when it comes to love. The next day, 7 Sept., Netflix shared the full trailer for the series. Unsurprisingly, it teases tons of drama, heartache, and, just maybe, true love.
Fans got their first glimpse at the forthcoming season on 17 June at a TUDUM fan event, when the streamer released the season's first teaser. In the clip, just one anonymous couple starts to open up about their pasts to each other — all while sitting in the show's famed pods.
Every season of "Love Is Blind" focuses on couples from a specific geographic area, and season five focuses on singles living in Houston. On 17 June, hosts Nick and Vanessa Lachey also announced that soon Netflix watchers will be able to stream "Love Is Blind: UK" and "Love Is Blind: Sweden," too.
"Love Is Blind" is Netflix's most prolific dating show, and it's responsible for quite a few real marriages. Two season one couples — Lauren Speed and Cameron Hamilton; and Amber Pike and Matt Barnett — are still together. Both season two marriages ended in divorce, but the two couples who tied the knot in season three are still married, as are all three couples who got married in season four. Fans will have to wait and see which duos form in season five.
The new season comes amidst allegations from former cast members, published by Business Insider in April, that conditions on set were abysmal and that they had no mental health support. Season two cast members Danielle Ruhl and Nick Thompson went on the record about their treatment by the show, which they alleged included ignoring mental health red flags. Kinetic Content, who produces the show, said in a statement per Variety at the time, "The wellbeing of our participants is of paramount importance to Kinetic. We have rigorous protocols in place to care for each person before, during, and after filming."
Ahead, here's what we know about "Love Is Blind" season 5.
