Fans of dating shows, specifically Netflix dating shows, are eating good right now. Netflix just announced that they had renewed Love is Blind for two additional seasons along with ordering several additional romantic reality shows to series. We also just found out that we’ll be getting The Ultimatum season 2 even though the first season has not even premiered yet!

The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On has a bold premise, even for reality television. The contestants will be forced to separate from their current partner and jump into a new “trial marriage” with an entirely new person for three weeks. At the end of that time, they’ll have to decide whether to marry the person they arrived with, or move on and break up altogether (maybe with the new person?).

The first season is premiering on Netflix Wednesday, April 6 with the finale airing on April 13. But ahead of the show’s debut, the streaming service decided to order an additional season—with a twist.

Season 2 will feature all-queer contestants, which is a pretty exciting shakeup. We don’t have many queer dating shows yet, so it’ll be exciting to see that change as we progress into the second season.

The Ultimatum season 2 will feature mostly women contestants

Not only will the cast of The Ultimatum season 2 be focused on all queer contestants, but it’s mostly women who will be featured! If you want to learn more, you can watch the video below for additional details.

Having a mostly-female dating show is something we rarely see in television. The closest we’ve come in recent years is probably Prime Video’s Tampa Baes series, but that wasn’t a dating competition show. There have been a couple of others, but usually they’re still a mixture of straight people and members of the LGBTQIA community, so it’ll be great to see a season that is solely devoted to queer people.

The Ultimatum season 2 release date updates

No word yet on when season 2 might release. I believe the second season has already been filmed, so it could be released later this year, but for now we’re excited to watch the premiere on April 6!
