There’s another reboot coming our way.
A Blind Date reboot has landed a series order at Bravo.
Multiple outlets confirm that the iconic dating series from is getting a modern day reboot.
Here’s Bravo’s description of the new series: “Dating has always been an awkward, contentious, sexy, and hilarious adventure. However, the magic of a blind date has gone away, replaced by the algorithms of dating apps, which have eroded dating into a casual meet-up to exchange preconceived notions. Sometimes you’re better off just going in blind!”
“Updated for 2019 with social media trends and diverse couples of all ethnicities, ages and sexual orientations, each half-hour episode will feature strangers who are paired up and sent off on a blind date. The cameras will follow every move as a narrator weaves in hilarious commentary with the help of graphics, animations and thought bubbles to ensure nothing goes unsaid.”
The original series ran from 1999 to 2006, which yielded an impressive 1,440 episodes. It was narrated by Roger Lodge. No word on who’s going to take over from Lodge.
