Love is Blind Mexico is coming, and we finally have a date. Netflix has announced that the second Latin American spinoff of the popular reality TV franchise and the first in Spanish, will premiere on August 1, 2024. 

Previous spin-off editions of the show have taken place in Brazil, Japan, and Sweden, with a UK edition also expected later this year and season 4 of the Brazil spin-off just dropping its first four episodes on June 19th. A new version of the show, filmed in the United Arab Emirates, titled Love is Blind, Habibi, has also been announced. 

The Mexican version of the show will be hosted by Omar and Lucy Chaparro. The couple, who has been together for more than two decades, is “a perfect example of love, affection and respect” and they will be there to “accompany the participants in this journey full of intense emotions, to see if they can find that person who can move their hearts completely” according to a Netflix press release.

For those unfamiliar with the show, Love is Blind is a reality TV show where participants get to know each other without ever seeing one another and have to decide to make the ultimate commitment – marriage, before ever setting eyes on each other. After that, the couple have four weeks to decide if the decision they made can handle the pressures of the real world and if love is really and truly blind.

The US version has seen some memorable Latine contestants, like Amy, the only one to get married in season 6 of the show, or Lydia, likewise, the only one to get married in Season 5. Both of them are still happily married. And one can’t forget about Season 4’s Jackie, one of the most controversial contestants in Love is Blind’s history, after she broke up with her first choice Marshall only to get back together with Josh, who she broke up with in the pods.
