Love Is Blind UK is taking the unorthodox reality dating show across the pond, and we're certainly excited about the romantic squabbles headed our way. 

This June, we were treated to a glimpse at Love Is Blind season 5 stateside—and we're still reeling from season 4's drama courtesy of Irina Solomonova and Micah Lussier—but we're curious to see what's happening with the international endeavors. 

In February 2023, we learned that Netflix's pod squad would be expanding, and the streamer released a statement saying: "Netflix is in production on an adaptation of hit series Love Is Blind, where singletons in the UK who want to be loved for who they are, rather than what they look like, will sign up for a less conventional approach to modern dating."

Less conventional = more dramatic. No need to tempt us with a good time, we're already there! Here's everything we know about Love Is Blind UK

Is there a 'Love Is Blind' UK and when will it premiere?

Yes, the international spin-off is officially in the works, and we can expect it to hit screens sometime in 2024. At the time of publication, a specific release date has yet to be revealed, but we can only hope sooner rather than later. (Hint, hint, Netflix.) 

Where can I watch 'Love Is Blind' UK?

Love Is Blind UK will stream on Netflix, alongside the other renditions of the franchise. At this time, the first four seasons of Love Is Blind are available, as well as the first three seasons of Love Is Blind Brazil and season one of Love Is Blind Japan. 

When will 'Love Is Blind' UK film?

Considering there's a 2024 release date, we'll expect Love Is Blind to start filming at some point this year, presumably. We have whirlwind marriages in the works, so time is of the essence!

Want to join 'Love Island' UK? All about the auditions

If you're looking to take a break from dating apps—and perhaps want to try something a little out-of-the-ordinary—a Love Is Blind audition questionnaire is currently available online for interested singletons in the UK. 

Do keep in mind that the process is extensive: you'll need to show proof of residence in the UK, answer questions, upload a video, etc. But you'll have to hurry: the closing date for applications is Friday, June 30, though production "reserves the right to extend or close the application process at any time in our sole discretion for any reason and without notice." (Note, the site incorrectly lists the closing date as June 31, a date that obviously does not exist!) 

Who will host 'Love Is Blind' UK?

At this time, the hosts of the new franchise are under wraps, but Nick and Vanessa Lachey famously hold the title for the US series. 

However, the couple came under fire during the Love Is Blind season 4 reunion after a disastrously late start to the live event, as well as their slew of insensitive questions, particularly about each couple's pregnancy plans. 

We have some time before we meet the UK's eligible bachelors and bachelorettes, but fortunately, there's plenty of romantic chaos to keep us busy until the show premieres. Here's how to watch Love Island France, even if you're thousands of miles from the City of Love. Plus, Love Island UK's Casa Amor is right around the corner, and you certainly don't want to miss out on that, right?!
