Get your golden drinking glasses ready because Netflix is crossing the pond for a new version of its popular dating series, Love Is Blind. Cheers to that!

Love is Blind: UK marks the fifth international iteration of the series that started in 2020, though only two others, Brazil and Japan, have aired so far. Even though German and Swedish versions have been announced, it looks like Love Is Blind: UK will be the next one to premiere.

The fifth season of the parent series is set to premiere this September, in addition to the highly-anticipated “After the Altar” segment for Love is Blind season 4. So, when will Love is Blind: UK premiere? And who’s hosting it? Here’s everything we know about the spinoff series!

When is Love Is Blind: UK coming to Netflix?

Netflix hasn’t announced the official release date for the UK version of the popular dating show yet, but we know it will arrive on the streamer sometime in 2024.

What is Love Is Blind: UK about?

Love Is Blind: UK has the same premise as the show’s other iterations. It will follow singles looking to find love by embarking on a bold social experiment that involves falling in love with someone before you ever set eyes on them.

Here’s the official synopsis, courtesy of Netflix:

"UK singles who want to be loved for who they are have signed up for a less-conventional approach to modern dating, and will choose someone to marry without ever meeting them. Over several weeks, the newly engaged couples will move in together, plan their wedding and find out if their physical connection matches their strong emotional bond developed in the Pods. When their wedding day arrives, will real-world realities and external factors push them apart, or will they marry the person they fell blindly in love with? Hosted by Matt and Emma Willis, this series will uncover whether looks, race or age do matter, or if love really is blind."

How many episodes will be in Love Is Blind: UK?

An episode count hasn’t been confirmed, but usually, Love Is Blind is around ten episodes, followed by a reunion and a three-part “After the Altar” special.
