What Happened In The Previous Season?

The first season of Perfect Match had several interesting participants including Dom Gabriel (who had earlier appeared in the sixth season of The Mole in the year 2022) and Georgia Hassarati (he is an alumnus of the third season of Netflix’s other popular show Too Hot to Handle). Both of them give an interesting run and end up emerging as the winners.

However, their relationship didn’t last long as they parted ways shortly after the show came out. Interestingly, none of the couples shown on Perfect Match are still in a relationship. But this is a common situation observed in such shows revolving around dating.

Has It Been Renewed For A Second Season?

In April 2023, merely two months after its premiere, the makers of Perfect Match announced that a Season 2 had been greenlit. This generated a lot of excitement among the fans of the show. When it comes to a release date, we are yet to receive any official confirmation about it.

Irina Solomonova, a participant of Love Is Blind Season 4, is also expected to join the team of Perfect Match. Another Love Is Blind Season 4 alumni Micah Lussier can also appear in the second season. Apart from them, Trevor Sova, who was a part of the sixth season of Love Is Blind, will be also a participant in the follow-up season of Perfect Match.

The first season saw Nick Lachey hosting the show. However, fans quickly demanded his removal after he ended up hosting Love Is Blind with his wife Vanessa Lachey. So we can speculate that he might be replaced by someone else in the second season.

Conclusion

Perfect Match has an interesting concept and is fresh unlike most of the dating shows out there. Upon its release, the show met with positive response from both critics and the audiences. One of the things that makes it refreshing and progressive is the fact that it had three people in the cast who identified themselves as bisexuals.

This move was met with praise from people from different countries as shows around dating generally follow a pattern where only heterosexual people are shown. Even the couples are heterosexual.

The inclusivity angle in Perfect Match makes it very different from other shows that merely exist in the realm of dating and relationships. Fans can expect that a similar move will be made in the second season as well considering how successful the first one was.

The new approach towards the format involving breaking up of other couples is another plus point of Perfect Match. While the couples didn’t end up together in real life, the whole show did provide wholesome entertainment to the audience.

What started out as yet another addition to the already bloated genre of television shows, ended up becoming truly revolutionary and engaging in a lot of ways which is a rarity these days. It has been a year almost since the first season aired on Netflix. Since then, people have seen many shows in the same realm. But none of them have been able to click the same way as Perfect Match.

The makers in most shows play it too safe and mostly follow the norm, which ends up making the entire format really boring and predictable. That is where a show like Perfect Match comes in and ups the game for everyone. It’s inclusivity and format are two of its biggest strengths.
