Netflix in mood for matchmaking as renews, expands dating franchises

Autism-focused dating show Love on the Spectrum

US-based global streaming service Netflix has renewed Love on the Spectrum, The Ultimatum: Marry or Move and several other unscripted love and dating shows for new seasons.

Love on the Spectrum follows people on the autism spectrum as they navigate the world of dating and relationships and has been renewed for a third season. It is produced by Northern Pictures and exec produced by Karina Holden and Cian O’Clery.

The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On has been renewed for a second season. The show focuses on couples where one partner is ready to get married and the other isn’t sure. An ultimatum is issued – and in just over eight weeks, they must commit to marriage or move on. In the meantime, each will choose a new potential partner from one of the other couples.

The producer is Kinetic Content and exec producers are Chris Coelen, Eric Detwiler, Sarah Dillistone and Stephanie Boyriven.

Elsewhere, The Ultimatum: Queer Love, is the latest instalment in the streamer’s The Ultimatum franchise. The series features five new couples, made up of women and non-binary people.

Kinetic Content is also casting for singles across the US for a new season of Love Is Blind, where people choose someone to marry without ever meeting them.

A third season of Indian Matchmaking is scheduled for spring 2023. In the 8×60’ series, Mumbai matchmaker Sima Taparia returns to help single millennials around the globe find their perfect match.

Exec producers are Aaron Saidman, Eli Holzman, Smriti Mundhra and J C Begley, with Sony Pictures Television-owned The Intellectual Property Corporation producing.

The same producers are also behind spin-off Jewish Matchmaking (8×60’) which will premiere early next year. The series features singles in the US and Israel as they turn their dating life over to a top Jewish matchmaker.
