- Chicago residents can now apply for casting.
Warning: The story contains spoilers for the first season of Love Is Blind.
Step aside, Chris Harrison. Love Is Blind is the latest reality dating series to hit television (well, Netflix), and fans are officially obsessed. The season finale of the show ended in heartbreak, tears, and about as much drama as Victoria F.'s dating history. (Although it turns out that several of the couples are actually still together after agreeing to marry their now spouses sight unseen!)
Sounds like a crazy concept, right? But viewers are already begging for more (hi, it me!). Lucky for fans, the Love Is Blind Season 2 is officially happening. Netflix confirmed the hit reality show was getting not only one, but two (!!) more seasons.

If you're in the Chicago area you might stand a chance at being cast in season 2.
Coelen said in an interview with Variety that the producers are looking for, "People who are genuine, people who really wanted a longterm relationship. There’s a lot of good shows out there where people can find love, but it’s not really that serious. We wanted people who are genuine about it. That was kind of criteria number one. Beyond that, within a certain relative age range, that’s about it." Sound like you? If you're in the Chicago area, you can apply online ASAP to be cast in the second season of Love Is Blind.
Love Is Blind could expand across different cities and maybe even countries.
The show's dark horse, Rory Newbrough, revealed some major deets about future seasons on The LovePod. He told listeners that producers on the show have already discussed the possibility of expanding to different cities and potentially other countries too.
Coelen confirmed this in his Variety interview. "Look, the idea is that ultimately we’re going to do this in other countries—it’s very global," Coelen said. "There’s lots of places that that we could take it. Chicago is a great place to look at, so is New York, Boston, Houston."
The creator of the show talked about going beyond three seasons.
Chris Coelen, the show's creator, spoke to Oprahmag.com, telling the publication that there's a "100 percent" possibility of Love Is Blind season 2, which of course, was confirmed. But he also added that he's ready to go wayyy beyond that. "I want to see a season 2 or a season 12. Don't you?" Coelen said.
