A new Netflix dating show is on the way and is sure to become a new favorite. Netflix officially announced the upcoming series Jewish Matchmaking, starring acclaimed businesswoman Aleeze Ben Shalom as the titular “matchmaker.” The show, which comes from the producers who made the Netflix show Indian Matchmaking (which returns with its third season on April 21), will follow Shalom as she assists singles in their journey to go down the aisle.

The system Shalom uses in the show is known as “shidduchim” and it consists of introducing members of the Orthodox Jewish community to one another with the ultimate goal of getting married. It’s a good time to be a fan of Netflix dating shows, what with this series, Indian Matchmaking, Love is Blind, and more on the way.

Shalom spoke to E! News about the upcoming series, saying, “In today’s world of modern love, we are used to turning to technology to find love. We download apps and we upload profiles. We swipe left or swipe right. And yet, somehow finding ‘the one’ has never been harder. That’s where I come in…but I’m not your granny’s matchmaker! Join me and daters from across the U.S. and Israel as we tap into ancient wisdom and apply it to modern love.”
