The 'Love Is Blind' Season 2 Cast Will Reunite Again for an 'After the Altar' Special
Will there be a reunion for 'Love Is Blind' Season 2? The latest season of the hit Netflix original got a ton of buzz, and there will be even more drama.
Spoiler Alert: This article contains spoilers for Season 2 of Love Is Blind.
It's been two years since viewers first saw Jessica Batten's dog drink directly from her glass of wine, or heard Amber Pike explain her tricky student loan situation to Matt Barnett, or witnessed Diamond Jack quote a Beyoncé lyric during her break-up from Carlton Morton on Season 1 of Love Is Blind.
The Netflix series captivated the nation in the early days of the COVID-19 lockdowns in 2020. The format starts off with the single stars completing 10 days of pod speed-dating before the couples get engaged, meet in person, live together, and then decide whether or not to get married (in that order).
The hit show officially returned for a second season on Feb. 11, and fans were immediately hooked once they got to know the Chicago-based characters who were dating in the pods.
Six couples got engaged on-air, and five pairs made it to their respective wedding days. When the tenth and final episode debuted on the streamer on Feb. 25, viewers finally learned who said "I do," and who said "Goodbye."
The second season filmed in the spring of 2021, meaning that many months have passed since the break-ups and weddings took place. Netflix subscribers were, therefore, thrilled when the streamer announced a reunion date.
Since the reunion filmed and aired, Kyle Abrams and Deepti Vempati, and Natalie Lee and Salvador "Sal" Perez, have teased potential romances, while Shaina Hurley has gotten engaged.
Thankfully, Netflix has since confirmed that fans will get to see more from the Season 2 stars with a second reunion special.
The first reunion special for 'Love Is Blind' Season 2 came out in March of 2022.
The second season of Love Is Blind consisted of 10 regular episodes, which were all released over a two week period. The first five episodes included the pod portion, the engagements, the first face-to-face meetings, and the the couples' retreat to Mexico. It wrapped up with the remaining pairs back at home in Chicago (and with one duo choosing to break up).
The following four episodes centered around the moving-in process, meeting the families, and getting ready for the weddings. The tenth and final episode of Season 2 chronicled the nuptials themselves and, in three instances, the called-off engagements.
While the original Season 2 schedule did not leave room for a reunion special, Netflix confirmed that co-hosts Nick and Vanessa Lachey would host a gathering with the couples who got engaged in the pods. It debuted on the streamer on Friday, March 4, which was exactly one week after the dramatic finale came out.
During the one-hour special, Kyle declared his love for Deepti, and Shayne Jansen shared that he never met up with Shaina again once his engagement to Natalie ended. Deepti's ex-fiancé, Shake Chatterjee, continued to dig himself into a deeper and deeper hole with his offensive comments.
Though viewers did get some resolution during the first reunion, in some respects, fans left with more questions than answers.
There will be another reunion for 'Love Is Blind' Season 2.
Nearly a year-and-a-half after the first season of the experimental dating series ended with a reunion, the cast members reunited once again for a three part special to commemorate the two-year anniversaries of the two successful weddings.
The event was entitled Love is Blind: After The Altar, and the Season 2 stars will get the same treatment.
On March 24, 2022, Netflix confirmed that that there would be another installment of Love Is Blind: After the Altar for the stars of the Chicago season. The streamer did not confirm an exact release date, but the statement noted that it would be out "later this year."
The first 11 episodes Love Is Blind Season 2 are available to stream on Netflix now.
