The hit Netflix dating show is returning for season 5 on Friday, Sept. 22.
After a Love Is Blind-free summer, Netflix is giving fans a treat for the fall. The streaming service is premiering season 5 of its hit dating series on Friday, Sept. 22.
After four successful seasons, season 5 is ready to bring an entirely new group of singles together for a blind meeting in the pods. Back in June, fans got to see a first look at the new season with two unnamed contestants enjoying a pod date and reflecting on their past romantic histories.
The franchise, which was created by Chris Coelen with Netflix and Kinetic Content, has gone on to have several successful international spin-offs as well as the show Perfect Match. The team also created the popular series, The Ultimatum, which is premiering its second season this month.
Here's everything we know about season 5:
Here's Happened to the Season 4 Contestants
Three couples from Love Is Blind's fourth season ended up getting married, and another unexpected pair are still together. Zack Goytowski and Bliss Poureetezadi tied the knot after Zack originally proposed to Irina Solomonova. Brett Brown and Tiffany Pennywell also said "I do" after an almost instant connection. Chelsea Griffin and Kwame Appiah also got hitched in the show's finale. Meanwhile, contestant Paul Peden said no to his fiancé, Micah Lussier, at the altar, and even though the pair previously shared that they'd tried dating after the show wrapped, they've since gone their separate ways. Paul has started dating Geneva Dunham. And on After the Altar, we also saw Jackie Bonds and Josh Demas together, but struggling with the drama surrounding his previously unaired proposal to co-star Monica Rodriguez. Jackie's ex, Marshall Glaze, has also moved on with girlfriend Chay Barnes, and they celebrated their one-year anniversary in July.

Love Is Blind Hosts
Despite complaints over Nick Lachey and Vanessa Lachey's hosting, ET confirmed that the couple will return for season 5. While some viewers called out Vanessa's behavior at the season 4 reunion, even starting a petition to have the Lacheys replaced on the show, ET previously reported that there is no truth to the rumors that season 1 standout couple Lauren Speed and Cameron Hamilton are being brought in to replace the Lacheys in any capacity.
Number of Episodes in Season 5
There will be 10 episodes in season 5, not including a reunion special.
