First Trailer Drops For Netflix’s New Dating Show 'Love Is Blind'

First Trailer Drops For Netflix’s New Dating Show 'Love Is Blind'

Netflix has dropped a trailer for its new brand new dating show Love Is Blind, by the makers of Married At First Sight.

The new series is set to follow a group of singles hoping to find somebody who loves them for their personality alone.

However, the catch is that the couples don't meet while getting to know each other, and instead speak from separate pods, only coming face-to-face the first time moments after one pops the question.

In the first trailer, the show looks just as bonkers as it sounds.

Chatting from their isolated pods, at first, it seems impossible to imagine that any of the contestants could develop a real connection.

However, as the teaser rolls on, it becomes clear that some real relationships are set to form.

"I don't need to see you to know you're a beautiful person," one contestant can be heard saying.

While another realises: "I've met the person I want to spend the rest of my life with. I've never seen her before."

The trailer doesn't just show the contestants dating, though.

It also follows their relationships after getting engaged, tackling the real world and planning their upcoming weddings. But will a physical attraction blossom before the big day?

Surprisingly, the two minute clip hints that some couples could be set for their happy ever after.

However, when others enter each other's lives and face the cold hard reality of debts, family tensions and differences in lifestyle, the romantic side of getting engaged to a stranger somewhat evaporates.

Promising drama ahead, we see one woman cry: "You're bringing me down," in the middle of a fiery argument.

While another bride appears to jilt her husband on their wedding day, running down a country road and bellowing: "I cannot do this".

We hate to say it, but this has TV gold written all over it.

The 10-episode series lands on the entertainment platform on 13 February, bang on time for Galentine's day TV bingeing.

Hosted by Nick Lachey (of 98 Degrees and Newly Weds fame) and his wife, Vanessa - who have been married for nine years and together for 14 - the series explores how important age and looks are in the quest for love, and whether strong bonds can be made purely through conversation.

Sharing obvious similarities with its predecessor Married at First Sight, there is no doubt that fans of the dating show will be excited for a new spin on the format.

Married At First Sight - which saw singletons agree to go up the aisle with partners selected for them by dating experts - gave us some bum-clenchingly awkward TV moments.

There was Carly and Troy's shock romance, Tracy 'sexting' Dean, and Dean Wells' affair with Instagram model Davina Rankin, to name a few.

As for the inevitable shockers Love Is Blind will have in store? We guess we'll just have to wait and see!
