After its premiere in May 2023, The Ultimatum: Queer Love proved to exceed expectations among viewers. The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On spin-off followed five LGBTQ+ couples on the brink of breaking up, and the only way to stay together was to get engaged by the end of the series. Or, they could opt to leave with a new partner.

Is ‘The Ultimatum: Queer Love’ renewed for Season 2?

Unfortunately, Netflix has not released any information about whether The Ultimatum: Queer Love has received the green light for Season 2. However, that doesn’t mean that another installment isn’t a possibility.

The inaugural season concluded with Episodes 9 and 10 on June 8, 2023, and at the time, the buzz was nowhere near dying down. And after the enlightening reunion and subsequent post-show updates posted by Netflix, viewers are incredibly invested in what each cast member is up to following the series.

While the show's success rate was low on the relationship front — only one of the original couples remains together in 2023Queer Love offered much-needed representation for queer women and non-binary folk in the reality television realm.

Although the series was far from perfect, Netflix now has the opportunity to continue providing a platform for LGBTQ+ individuals to share their love stories.

The streaming service has the power to offer more queer-centric storylines to its overly-saturated straight reality series repertoire, meaning it would be in Netflix’s best interest to renew Queer Love for Season 2 and improve on its shortcomings.

Fans of The Ultimatum: Queer Love have undoubtedly noticed that filming occurred quite some time before its premiere.

When ex-partners Vanessa Papas and Xander Boger spoke with Bustle ahead of the premiere, they revealed that the LGBTQ+ marriage experiment took place between September and November 2021.

Additionally, the taping of the reunion happened more than a year later, in January 2023. With Netflix keeping Queer Love in its back pocket for years, viewers wonder what took the streaming service so long to introduce the queer reality series to the masses.

If Netflix renews Queer Love for Season 2, a second installment could follow a similar timeline, meaning fans wouldn’t expect a new season until 2025. However, based on the show’s popularity, it would behoove the streaming service to work in a timely fashion.

It’s also crucial to note that The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On didn’t receive another season — and was instead followed by the LGBTQ+ spin-off.

This information could mean that the next installment in The Ultimatum franchise could include an entirely new premise. But for now, it looks like only time will tell.

All episodes of The Ultimatum: Queer Love are now streaming on Netflix.
