Get ready, reality TV lovers! The Circle is officially returning to Netflix this year. The competition series based on the UK version of the same name quickly became one of the streaming service’s most popular reality shows when it debuted back in January 2020. Now, over one year later, we’ll finally be revisiting this entertaining approach to becoming a social media influencer.

The Circle marks one of the many reality shows that took Netflix by storm in 2020, along with Too Hot to Handle, Love is Blind, and Floor is Lava, to name a few. Now, the streaming platform serves as competition to known reality homes of ABC, CBS, and more. And these shows aren’t one-season flops, either. Along with The Circle, Too Hot to Handle just got a confirmed release date for its second season as well.

So when can we expect the return of one of these hilariously addicting shows? Here’s what to know about The Circle season 2.

The Circle season 2 release date

As reported today by The Wrap, The Circle season 2 will be premiering on Netflix on April 14, 2021. Similar to how the first season played out, multiple new episodes of The Circle season 2 will drop on Netflix weekly. The final episode will be released on May 5, 2021.

The Wrap cites Netflix executive Brandon Riegg in saying the following about the return of Netflix’s reality shows:

"Although these shows may have felt a little too real at times, fans all over the world rallied around them with an energy and excitement we could not have imagined. We can’t wait for our members to see what’s in store in their second seasons. We’ve added new twists and surprises to keep the games fresh — and all new players that we think fans will love rooting for."

The first season of The Circle turned a handful of the contestants into real-life influencers, with one of the biggest examples being Sammie Cimarelli. The fan-favorite on the reality show currently has 960,000 followers on Instagram and is an ambassador for Rihanna’s lingerie line Savage X Fenty.

We cannot wait to see what new stars come out of The Circle season 2, and who will win that $100,000 prize in the end!
