Netflix has really kept us going in recent months, with tons of feel good shows being added to bide us through lockdown.

But the latest addition looks like the best of the bunch. Introducing Love On The Spectrum.

If you think the name rings a bell, that's because the dating show was actually originally released on ABC Australia last year.

But now it's on Netflix for us all to enjoy - and it's giving us serious Undateables vibes.

Check out a teaser clip below:

The show follows a group of young adults with autism as they try to find the love of their lives.

And the teaser promises it's going to be a real tear-jerker. In fact, some fans even said that the short clip alone left them "balling [their] eyes out" (sic).

It features Chloe, who initially admits she's a little scared of letting somebody in to her life.

But it looks like she had nothing to worry about, as later on her date, in a field of sunflowers, she admits: "I really like her. We're talking and getting along.

"I was expecting sort of awkwardness and we wouldn't have anything to talk about, but we've just been non-stop talking.

"I can't stop smiling." Awwww.

Taking to social media after watching the clip, one person wrote: "I literally started balling my eyes out when she said 'I can't stop smiling!' Such a beautiful soul!!!"

As another agreed: "This is the cutest thing I've ever seen! It especially makes me happy to see not only a girl on the spectrum, but a girl who loves girls on the spectrum."

In a statement, the show's director Cian O'Cleary said: "What is the most important thing in life? Many people would answer: LOVE.

"There is a common misconception that people on the autism spectrum are not interested in relationships or romance. From my experience, this simply isn't true.

"In making television series about disability over the years, I have spoken to many young adults on the autism spectrum as well as families, job coaches, psychologists, and autism organisations.

"One thing really stood out for me: So many people on the spectrum were wanting to find love, but many had never even been on a date in their lives.

"When you speak to a large number of people whose main desire in life is to have a partner, and they haven't even been on a date, something isn't right."

Love On The Spectrum isn't the only dating show to land on the platform, as it also recently released Indian Matchmaking - a show that aims to set up millennials from Indian backgrounds, who have decided to find love away from the apps.

The show enlists the help of matchmaker Sima Taparia, who does her best to assist the individuals as they search for 'The One'.
