Here comes the urge to reorganize your whole place again! Sparking Joy with Marie Kondo comes to Netflix on Aug. 31.

You may know Marie Kondo from her best-seller The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, which became immensely popular in the United States once it was published in 2014.

Netflix first teamed up with the internationally renowned de-clutterer and organizer in 2019 for the eight-episode series Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. The show resulted in her nomination for an Emmy Award!

It’s not a surprise that Netflix decided to do another show with Marie Kondo, but most people suspected a second season for Tidying Up. So what’s different about this series?

What is Sparking Joy with Marie Kondo about?

Tidying Up follows Marie Kondo as she visits eight individual families and helps de-clutter their lives. She utilizes her own KonMari method to help organize homes and relationships.

Sparking Joy will be the same ideology on a much bigger scale. Instead of families, this time around Marie Kondo will be organizing an entire town. This three-part mini-series shows Marie Kondo’s efforts to help three local community businesses: Logan’s Gardens, The Palm Coffee Bar and SouthHills Church. As we know with all makeover reality shows, it’ll be more emotional than we expect.

Here’s the synopsis the Netflix YouTube channel provides:

"The home was just the beginning. Global organization icon Marie Kondo is back, in Sparking Joy with Marie Kondo. The three-episode series follows Marie as she shares her life-changing method with three deserving businesses, their owners and employees."

The world-famous organizing consultant will also be sharing her personal life with the camera. Unlike in the first series, Sparking Joy will feature Kondo’s family and how she balances work and home. The host and author is also a wife and mother of three children. Kondo will show how she applies the KonMari method to her own lifestyle.

Sparking Joy begins streaming on Netflix at 12:01 a.m. PT and 3:01 a.m. ET on Tuesday, Aug. 31. Get ready for another influx of donations to a thrift store near you!
