Season two was packed with drama, and in the three episodes of After the Altar, even more things happen. This is a different reality show, and that’s why it’s working for Netflix. There are always different ways to look at relationships, and this show is proof of it.

Netflix series Love Is Blind: After the Altar season 2 was released on September 16, 2022.

Season two of Love is Blind was one of the best seasons of a reality show in a very long time. It became an obsession for those who got hooked on the first season during the first lockdown because of the concept. The reality show pulls singles who want to be loved for who they are, rather than what they look like, and have signed up for a less conventional approach to modern dating. Instead of scrolling through dating apps, these couples sat in rooms with a wall between them whoever they were on a date with. In some cases, this is an unconventional approach, but to find love, people will go to great lengths, especially after finding that dating apps are hard to navigate. Season two was packed with drama and in the three episodes of After the Altar even more things happen. 

Natalie, Shaina, and Shayne are still uncomfortable with each other and the plot thickens. When Shaina finds her true love, Christo, Natalie feels the need to speak her truth about that relationship. Although Natalie’s reservations about Shaina are a bit excessive, it makes for some good drama at Nick and Natalie’s weekend getaway. We get to catch up with multiple couples including Jarrett and Iyanna who have had some difficulties in their relationship, Sal and his new girlfriend Jessi, and the situationship that is Kyle and Deepti. Everyone is in a different position and new things come to the forefront while they’re having fun for the weekend. The most solid couple is Nick and Natalie, and it was nice to see how settled they’ve become with one another. The way the dynamics have shifted between certain people will play out in the three episodes with Jarrett and Iyanna having the most difficult ending.

After going through the season with these people and seeing them form these relationships you end up having a connection to them. It’s hard to see them go through disagreements or hard times. It does get funnier as the series goes on because of the Natalie, Shaina. and Shayne dynamic because of how odd of a triangle they’ve become. You end up rooting for some people because those who watch this particular reality show, genuinely believe in love. Even if some couples aren’t meant for each other, it’s all about the journey that makes this series interesting to watch. The drama that comes with it is a bonus, but it comes down to how you feel about love and relationships. This is a different reality show and that’s why it’s working for Netflix. There are always different ways to look at relationships and this show is proof of it.
