Bravo is rebooting the iconic dating show.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has put in a series order for a Blind Date reboot. The modern take will include updating the show for 2019 “with social media trends and diverse couples of all ethnicities, ages and sexual orientations.”
Check out Bravo’s description of the reboot: “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!”
“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.”
Still no word on a premiere date but it is known that casting is already underway.
