On the hills of another successful season, though the season 4 reunion left much to be desired, Love Is Blind season 5 is returning with a whole new crop of people wanting to find "the one." 

The hit series once again follows singles as they flock to the infamous pods in search of their soulmates. Unlike with norms of dating outside of this social experiment, participants don’t have the advantage of seeing the people they’ll go on dates with, meaning they’ll have to rely on meaningful conversations to determine if they fall in love. Guiding the new singles along in their romantic journey are returning hosts Nick and Vanessa Lachey. 

Here’s everything you need to know about Love Is Blind season 5.

At the heart of the show, single men and women gather together under one roof hoping to find their soulmates. Each participant in this love experiment gets the opportunity to chat with potential suitors in the infamous pods with the chance of building a meaningful connection with someone without having ever laid eyes on them.

Once two people develop a bond they feel is strong enough to warrant a marriage proposal, the pair then meet face-to-face and start their journey outside of the pods with a romantic vacation getaway. Although in season 4, Micah and Irina certainly made the trip for the couples a little more dramatic. 

After the vacation wraps, they are faced with some real-world relationship problems and have to decide if they’ll actually say “I do,” proving love is blind, or opt to go their separate ways.
