Sexy Beasts Season 2 Release Date, Cast, And Narrator Revealed

Following the success of "Too Hot to Handle" and "Love is Blind," Netflix effectively changed the reality dating genre with the release of "Sexy Beasts" in July. In each episode of the wild series, one lead dates three prospective partners and chooses a "Sexy Beast" to continue a relationship with at the end. Like other reality dating shows, they go out for dinner, do interesting activities, and foster romantic connections with each other. The twist? Suitors and their romantic interests obscure their faces with prosthetics and makeup to look like beasts or various animals, and then unmask after the suitor has made their choice. The objective, according to Netflix's official show description, is to "say goodbye to superficial dating [and] put true blind-date chemistry to the test." Whether "Sexy Beasts" achieves that is up for debate, but it certainly has generated a lot of discussion among dating show fans.

In fact, "Sexy Beasts" has garnered so much attention for its weird and wacky concept that fans are asking if there will be a Season 2. Well, we've got good news for you. Season 2 of "Sexy Beasts" is a go. Find out all the details of when it will be released below.

Season 2 of 'Sexy Beasts' will be released sooner than you think

Part of what made the first season of "Sexy Beasts" so successful was the costumes and prosthetics, but also Netflix's streaming format. Unlike traditional reality dating shows on television, Netflix drops all their episodes at once, allowing viewers to binge-watch and become invested in "Sexy Beasts." Per PopSugar, the first season had six 30-minute episodes centered around the suitors and their romantic interests, and the second season will also follow the same format. The outlet also reports that Season 2 will be released later this year, as an exact date has not been announced yet by the streaming giant. However, Netflix seemingly has a lot of confidence in the series.

In June, Variety reported that Netflix ordered Season 2 even before the show aired. Simon Welton, creator and executive producer for Lion TV, the production company behind the show, could not be happier about Netflix's support. "Making 'Sexy Beasts' for Netflix has been an incredibly exciting process," he said. "...I hope the show puts a smile on peoples' faces as they play along to discover who'll fall in love with who, and what our cast all really look like."

Who is cast on Season 2 of 'Sexy Beasts'?

While Simon Welton has encouraged audiences to fall in love with the cast of "Sexy Beasts," no details about the Season 2 cast have been announced. This is expected, considering the premise of the show is not knowing what people look like to avoid preconceived feelings and attractions. However, like "The Mask Singer," Netflix might choose to reveal the costumes for each contestant closer to the premiere date.

It will be interesting to see what animals or beasts will be featured in Season 2. As costume designer Kristyan Mallett noted to Newsweek in July, coming up with the right costumes took a lot of thought and planning. "We had this massive list of characters we spoke about. Netflix approved the ones they liked and from there I sat at home and drew quite crude artwork to give them a taste of what they'll look like," he explained. "I showed them things like the Rooster, the Mandrill, a Tiger to give them an idea of what the final product will be like." Mallett also confirmed that there will again be 24 characters in the upcoming season. Lucky for viewers though, the narrator will remain unchanged.

Season 2 of 'Sexy Beasts' will have the same narrator

Comedian and actor Rob Delaney will return to narrate Season 2 of "Sexy Beasts," according to Variety. The narrator role brought Delaney even more popularity after a decade of solid work in front of the camera and behind the scenes. According to his website, he was named one of the Top 10 Comics to Watch by Variety in 2012, and since then, his career has taken off. He played the hilarious role of Peter alongside Ryan Reynolds in the R-rated "Deadpool 2," and created and starred in the Amazon Prime Original series "Catastrophe" from 2015-2019 (via IMDb).

It's obvious that Delaney is a man of many talents — and isn't afraid to poke fun at himself after viewers asked him if he was the narrator on "Sexy Beasts." "Indeed I am the narrator of @netflix's new dating show, Sexy Beasts," he tweeted in July. "My understanding is that's it's #helping & #healing all who watch it, so do tune in." With jokes like this, it'll be near-impossible for viewers not to tune into the upcoming season of "Sexy Beasts" later this year.
