Did you enjoy the thrilling ups and downs of season 1? Well, get excited because season 2 of Love Is Blind is coming to Netflix on September 16th! In season 2 – After the Altar, viewers get to see a walkthrough of the love lives of their favorite, or least favorite, singles from the show so far. The trailer that recently dropped gives us a teaser of what to expect in the upcoming season.
An Emotional Trailer Dropped
In the trailer that’s just over a minute long, the cast members of Love Is Blind give the viewers an honest and emotional update on their relationships and how things progressed after the filming of the first season. It appears that Iyanna McNeely and Jarrette Jones are trying to figure out if their marriage is worth saving while Deepti Vempati is pondering a potential connection with Kyle Abrams. In the trailer, Jarrette shares that marriage isn’t easy, contrary to what some people might say. Iyanna also stated that she’s wondering if they made a mistake or if their marriage is worth fighting for.
Love Is Blind Couples Headed for Breakup
Although the details of the conflict Iyanna and Jarrette appear to be going through were left out of the trailer, there’s no doubt that the upcoming season will address it head-on. It appears that Natalie Lee and Shaina Hurley remain on bad terms due to explicit messages that were exchanged between Shayne Jansen, Natalie’s fiance, and Shaina. It appears that all of the show’s initial couples have broken up. Iyanna and Jarrette announced on Instagram that they’ll be getting a divorce, and Danielle already filed for divorce from Nick Thompson.
What to Expect From the Upcoming Season
In the soon-to-be-released season of Love Is Blind, viewers get to have a look into what went awry with the relationships formed in season 2. Although they chose not to get married, Salvador “Sal” Perez and Mallory Zapata will be featured in season 2. Avid viewers can rejoice at the fact that the show has been renewed for 3 more seasons!
Eurovision Is Launching a Spin-Off Edition in Latin America
Whether you love it or laugh at it, one thing’s certain — the coveted Eurovision Song Contest continues to amass a global audience every year. Now, the song contest is announcing a Latin American spin-off.
Eurovision Is Growing
When you pair culture, music, and a grand show together, you pretty much get a recipe for success and viewership. Eurovision’s global popularity has largely meant that a continental offshoot has been in the pipeline for a while. Some expansion efforts have already been made — the American Song Contest that aired last year and crowned K-pop star AleXa at the finale, while Eurovision Song Contest Canada will debut next year, in 2023.
The first sign of the expansion of the contest was the inclusion of non-European countries like Australia in the program as part of its “Building Bridges” campaign. In 2022 alone, Eurovision had more than 75 unique viewers on YouTube across more than 230 global territories.
Why Latin America, Though?
Turns out, Eurovision is quite popular in Latin America. According to the song contest’s viewership statistics, its highest ratings from non-participating countries outside of Europe come from Latin America — Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Mexico. That’s why contest officials have decided that a spin-off there is the most logical next step toward the global expansion of the beloved music event.
News of the spin-off was made official by Martin Österdahl, the Eurovision Song Contest Executive Supervisor. In his announcement, he said that after the successful launch of the American Song Contest, the European Broadcasting Union will be joining forces with Voxovation to bring the “excitement and magic” of Eurovision to Latin America. Given its rich and colorful culture, it’s fair to assume that the song contest there would give birth to many great hits and aspiring musicians like it did with Italy’s Maneskin, which won the 2021 edition.
At this stage, it’s too early to speak of timelines, but fans hope they won’t have to wait too long for the Latin America edition.
