Perfect Match is Netflix’s latest dating competition series. Since its release in February 2023, Perfect Match has dominated the conversation on social media with thousands of tweets, TikTok videos, and more shared by viewers and castmates alike.

But behind the scenes, there has been significant drama between castmates and confusion from viewers based on the relationship status of certain couples. Much of the confusion stems from the fact that Netflix waited almost an entire year between filming and releasing the show.

Since filming, the winning couple and every other couple that came out of the show (like Kariselle Snow/Joey Sasso and Chloe Veitch/Shayne Jansen) have broken up. Some have been publicly in different relationships for months now, causing fans to question their sincerity in competing in the series in the first place, unaware that they finished filming a long time ago.

When was Perfect Match actually filmed? Will there be a Perfect Match reunion episode? Keep reading to learn everything we know about the dating show and more.

When was Perfect Match filmed?

Perfect Match was filmed during the first few months of 2022. Based on various comments from castmates, the show was filmed from February to late March or early April. That means it took nearly a year for Netflix to wrap production, edit it, and release the show to the public.

That’s a long time for the cast to go from being in a villa together to being back in their real lives, and many had already moved on with other partners since the time of the show filming. Georgia Hassarati and Harry Jowsey started dating in 2022, so her and Dom Gabriel’s relationship clearly didn’t last long after they stopped filming the show.

Since filming wrapped, Francesca Farago has publicly moved on with her boyfriend, Jesse Sullivan. But since the show just came out to viewers, it feels new, so they struggled to reconcile what they saw from the cast’s social media with what they saw on-screen. For clarification, Francesca and Jesse posted several TikTok videos explaining the timeline, here’s one.

Will there be a Perfect Match reunion episode?

Instead of releasing a traditional reunion episode like other dating shows like Love is Blind, Netflix opted to share updates on Perfect Match couples through their website Tudum. If you go to this link, you can see the official “status update” for the show’s various couples, including a video that features statements from the finalists and winners. It does not seem like we’ll be getting an actual reunion episode, so the update will have to suffice.
