Netflix Confirms New Seasons of The Circle
Get your game faces on because The Circle is making a return on Netflix with two new seasons and we can hardly contain our excitement. The Circle, a reality show where contestants eliminate one another without ever meeting face to face, took the internet by storm with season 1 of the US version.
For those of you who still haven’t watched the show, here’s what you need to know:
Each contestant gets locked up in their respective apartments with only an app to connect them to the other contestants. Set with a number of challenges, the participants have to decide who they can trust and it’s up to them to figure out if who they are talking to is who they really say they are on their profile. It’s safe to say that you’ll be on the edge of your seat watching and we advise that you start binge watching now as season 2 is right around the corner.
The finale of season 1 aired January 15, and just like many of the viewers, we were sad to say goodbye to a truly iconic cast. Since season 1 was such a big hit, it only makes sense to create a 2nd and 3rd season. Although a year has not been set for season 3, we do know that season 2 is set to launch in 2021.
Season 1 of The Circle was filmed last fall in the exact location that they shot the original UK version. With an apartment building ready to use for taping, the creators of the show will have no problem finding the perfect place to shoot.
Interested in applying? The show is now accepting online applications here. Requirements are that you are 18 or older, have a passport and able to travel to the U.K., and you’re not related to, employed by, or engaged to anyone at Netflix. And with a $100,000 grand prize, The Circle is definitely an opportunity you won’t want to miss.
