Another reason to look forward to the fall? Love Is Blind season 5. 

Spooky season will begin with arguably the most frightening task of all: finding your forever person without laying eyes on them. No biggie! 

But considering it worked out fairly well for our Love Is Blind season 4 couples—btw, don't forget to catch up with them on Love Is Blind: After the Altar season 4 —we're curious to see how things will play out in the pods this go-around. And luckily, we don't have to wait much longer to find out!

The pods are open folks, and we're headed in alongside those brave souls who signed up for the show. 

'Love Is Blind' season 5: everything you need to know

Netflix confirmed Love Is Blind season 5 in 2022, and according to host Nick Lachey, the heavy lifting was already done a year ago.

"We’ve filmed five seasons,” he told Women’s Health in March 2023, ahead of season 4. “Every single [one] has been so different from the others, so that’s what makes it interesting, what makes it intriguing for us allows us to approach every single season with a fresh attitude and fresh perspective.”

What is the 'Love Is Blind' season 5 release date?

Love Is Blind season 5 will begin streaming on Friday, September 22 on Netflix. Why not usher in the Autumnal Equinox with a little romance and some drama? The episode release dates are as follows: 

  • Episodes 1-4 on Friday, September 22
  • Episodes 5-7 on Friday, September 29
  • Episodes 8 and 9 on Friday, October 6
  • Episode 10 (the weddings) on Friday, October 13

The irony of the wedding episode airing on Friday the 13th is not lost on us, folks. As far as the reunion, dates are TBD, but we suspect Netflix will provide more information within the coming weeks. Watch this space for details.

In the short teaser clip released by Netflix at the Tudum fan event in June 2023, we catch two cast mates on a blind date in the pods, and it gets pretty serious considering they can't actually see each other.

 "I have a track record of crappy relationships, and I just haven't found the right person," one singleton tells another, before revealing in a confessional that her mother suspects she might not be meant to be ina relationshipp. Ouch! Watch it all below.

If you thought things were messy before, just wait. We have screaming matches, cold feet, and perhaps the wildest scenario of all: an alleged set-up where a woman attempted to get her ex to try the experiment in order to bring him back into her life. (We'll have to see how that really unfolds come September 22.) Yikes!

According to reps at Netflix, "In the most shocking season yet, the singles face new challenges, unexpected twists, and surprising turns that will test their personal resolve, and the strength of their connections, more than ever before."

What is the 'Love Is Blind' season 5 location?

Buckle up, friends. We're venturing back to the Lone Star state to watch singles in Houston find the loves of their lives...blindly. The pods, by the way, are filmed on a soundstage in California—but here's where the experiment has taken place in seasons past: 

  • Season 1: Atlanta, Georgia
  • Season 2: Chicago, Illinois
  • Season 3: Dallas, Texas
  • Season 4: Seattle, Washington

Who will be in the 'Love Is Blind' cast season 5?

We're anxious to meet everyone on the Love Is Blind season 5 cast, that's for sure. And we're certainly curious who is going to gravitate toward whom. 

In the meantime, be sure to check out The Ultimatum: Marry Or Move On season 2, which will begin streaming on the platform on Wednesday, August 23. And but of course, you're going to want to spend LDW catching up with season 4's pod squad when After the Altar hits screens on Friday, September 1.
