Netflix's Too Hot to Handle reunion is airing on Friday, May 8.
Extra Hot: The Reunion will provide updates from Francesca Farago, Harry Jowsey, and more.
Which couples are still together? Who's just friends? Who's stuck in limbo? We'll find out.
Extra Hot: The Reunion will gather all our favorite Too Hot to Handle cast members in one place—er, computer screen. Narrator Desiree Burch is returning to host the special. Hopefully, Lana, the show's talking robot, will make an appearance, too.
According to creator Louise Peet, the three weeks spent filming Too Hot to Handle changed many of the cast members's lives. "I speak to them quite regularly and I'm sure they'll tell you that they have changed since this show and they have become, they think, better people," Peet told OprahMag.com.
Cast member David Birtwistle, for one, backed up Peet's sentiment: "I changed a lot of perspective on things. It made me see some of the things that I’d hidden away. Made me realize that I want a serious relationship," Birtwistle said, adding that he's single, ladies.
Here's what we know about the Too Hot to Handle reunion, and how to tune in.
The special will air on Friday, May 8.
Too Hot to Handle drops on Netflix on Friday, May 8 at 12 p.m. PT. That means, unfortunately, us East Coasters will have to stay up until 3 a.m. to find out whether Matthew Smith still goes by "Jesus," his nickname on the show.
The reunion was filmed in quarantine.
The Too Hot to Handle reunion will reflect cast members' new normal, and ours. Like the Tiger King bonus episode before it, the reunion was put together while the cast and crew were in quarantine.
As a result, Extra Hot: The Reunion will be a far different viewing experience than the Love Is Blind bonus episode, filmed in Atlanta back in March. In anticipation of the Love Is Blind reunion, we spent an entire paragraph analyzing the cast members' body language for clues about which couples were together.
Unfortunately, body language analysis is much harder in the era of social distancing. But you know what is possible? Analyzing people's living spaces—and you know we're desperate to know how the cast of Too Hot to Handle decorates their rooms, or, err, boats. This much is for sure: They're no longer in the luxury Mexican villa where the show was filmed.
Harry might proposal to Francesca.
Take a good, hard look at the official announcement of Extra Hot: The Reunion on Netflix's Instagram page. That's Harry, holding up a Ring Pop. Is that candy—or is that an actual marriage proposal taking place before a webcam?

There's reason to think Harry is, indeed, asking his paramour to marry him. Not only are Harry and Francesca still together—they plan to get hitched. "Francesca wants to get married. I'm not sure if she's dating me for the long haul or the citizenship into Australia. I'm not sure, but I'm willing to take the risk," Harry said in an earlier interview with OprahMag.com.
Harry added that if they were living together in L.A., they'd be married already. "Legitimately, if she was here, we'd end up going to Vegas and just doing it. Because we're stupid," he joked.
Looks like breaking all of Lana's rules were worth it.
Expect answers to other post-show questions.
There's so much we need to know! Are Sharron Townsend and Rhonda Paul still talking every day? Have Chloe Veitch and Nicole O'Brien moved forward with the podcast they, so tantalizing, teased to OprahMag.com? Speaking of Nicole—are she and Bryce Herschberg still an item? How did everyone spend their $7,500 winnings?
We're also hoping to hear from the cast members who got on Lana's bad side: Namely, Madison Wyborny, Kori Sampson, and Haley Cureton, all of whom were sent home before the collective prize could be shared.
We'll report back on May 8
