“The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On,” which debuted in April 2022 and spent four weeks on the Top 10 list, will return for a second season with six new couples all on the verge of marriage. Per the official description, “One partner is ready to get married, the other isn’t quite as sure. An ultimatum is issued – and in just over eight weeks, they must commit to marriage, or move on. In the meantime, each will choose a new potential partner from one of the other couples, in a life-changing opportunity to get a glimpse of two different possible futures.”

Nick and Vanessa Lachey, who also host “Love Is Blind,” will be back for the next season, produced by Kinetic Content. Chris Coelen, Eric Detwiler, Sarah Dillistone and Stephanie Boyriven are executive producers.

The pair will not host the spinoff, “The Ultimatum: Queer Love,” which has already been completed. JoAnna Garcia Swisher will host the show, which follows new couples consisting of women and non-binary people at a turning point in their relationship as one is ready for marriage and the other is not. Over eight weeks, each pair will either get married or break up.

Netflix also announced on Thursday that “Love is Blind” is currently casting for the next season at LoveIsBlind.CastingCrane.com. Additionally, Season 3 of “Indian Matchmaking” and the new series “Jewish Matchmaking” are both coming to Netflix in the spring. Each will consist of eight one-hour episodes. Aaron Saidman, Eli Holzman, J.C. Begley and Smriti Mundhra executive produce.
