Love Is Blind Season 2: Where are they now?

Season two of Love Is Blind returned with new couples and more drama, with two couples deciding to tie the knot; an update on what has since transpired.

After a two-year hiatus since the first season of the Netflix original series, Love Is Blind returned with its second season in February 2022 and was filled with the twists and surprises the show has become popular for.

While two couples took the leap to get married at the end of season two, a few others did not. Moreover, since the completion of shooting season two, there have been surprise couples that have blossomed from the series, and couples that have called it quits for good.

What is Love Is Blind?

With Love Is Blind, Netflix aimed to create its own social experiment reality show that could portray that love is truly blind, and not dependent on race, class, age and appearances.

The premise of the series is, “Singles who want to be loved for who they are, rather than what they look like, have signed up for a less conventional approach to modern dating.”

In the new season of the series, the viewers got to experience new couples entering the pods, all in an attempt to tie the knot in front of their family and friends.
