One person who has already captured viewers' hearts is Steve, the self-described 'goofy' pun-loving 63-year-old looking for love.
Steve revealed he always felt misunderstood by his peers, telling the Netflix camera crew: “Growing up, I always knew deep, deep, deep down that I didn’t really fit in. Inside of my brain, I knew something was different.
"I might be a little goofy, I might be a little bit weird, but you know what? The intentions are always good.”
He also revealed that he had been single his entire life and said it would be ‘an absolute dream come true’ to find a ‘lovely lady’ to spend his time with.
“I think I’m meant to be with a person, a woman. This loneliness thing is… it’s not for me.”
Steve now has a legion of fans on social media and after bingeing the new series, viewers quickly took to Twitter to share their love for him.
One fan tweeted: “Steve from Love on the Spectrum needs [protection] at all costs. He is the purest of souls.”
Another viewer shared: “Steve from Love on the Spectrum U.S. means the world to me, I wish him nothing but happiness and joy and love.”
A third Twitter user wrote: “New goal is to have a voice as calming as Steve from Love on the Spectrum when I’m 63.”
Another woman threatened Netflix if Steve doesn't find love on the show, commenting: "Steve on Love on the Spectrum US is the purest and kindest soul and if this man doesn’t find love then I’m suing @netflix."
It seems David Attenborough could have some added some competition if Netflix viewers get their way, with one person tweeting: “Oh my God Steve from Love on the Spectrum U.S. is the most beautiful soul in the universe.
“Someone hire him to narrate documentaries because his voice calms my soul.”

Another fan tweeted a rather touching poem: “Steve from Love on the Spectrum: U.S.! if he has 1 million fans, i’m one of them. if he has 100 fans, i’m one. if he has 1 fan it’s me! if he has 0 fans i’ve left this earthly plane.”
The warm and insightful dating series follows autistic people as they dive into the world of dating and relationships.
