The Ultimatum: Marry Or Move On Season 2 - Here's What We Can Tell Fans So Far

"The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On" was a huge hit on Netflix, gripping subscribers with a very unique twist on the dating game premise. What made "The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On" so different, we hear you ask? This show included people who were already in couples, but couples made up of one person who was ready for marriage and one who was not.

They then had to go their separate ways and (romantically) get to know other people in the same situation, picking one person from another couple to continue on the experiment with. Still with us? Good. After that, the new couples had to live together for several days to see what it would be like to be married to them, before then returning to their initial significant other. It was then that the couples had to decide if they would stay together, be single, or see how things go with the person they'd been living with.

Naturally, the show — hosted by Vanessa Lachey and Nick Lachey — sparked quite the reaction across the internet. The Guardian branded it "absolutely terrible" and "so bad you will pray for the accelerated heat death of the universe," though Digital Spy was a little more complimentary, calling it "undoubtedly good TV." But mixed reviews did not spell the end for the radical reality show, so, what can we expect from Season 2?

Will The Ultimatum: Marry or Move get a Season 2?

Don't fear reality TV fans, as "The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On" will definitely be back for Season 2. Netflix confirmed the news in a video starring plenty of familiar faces from the streamer's dating shows. The video featured "Too Hot to Handle"'s Harry Jowsey, Nathan Webb, and Nathan Soan Mngomezulu, plus "Love Is Blind"'s Matt Barnett and Jarrette Jones, and, of course, "Love Is Blind" and "The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On" co-host Nick Lachey. Presented like a music video for a song titled "Love Has No Off Season," Jones revealed in the clip uploaded in March, "Marry or move on, it's time to decide if the grass is greener on the other side. It's called 'The Ultimatum' and it's dropping two seasons."

Founder of production company Kinetic Content, Chris Coelen, has also teased that fans shouldn't expect to see the same thing again when the show returns, hitting back "No. Not at all" when asked by The Hollywood Reporter if what happened in Season 1 will carry over. "You want to put groups of people together who have something in common and who would have a genuine interest in one another," he continued, later adding, "So if we had a group of cast members who were more mid-30s, which is a really interesting, viable cast, to me it's less about the ages than the fact that they're participating in something where there's going to be some mutual interest."

Who will be cast in The Ultimatum: Marry or Move Season 2?

Get ready, because "The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On" Season 2 is changing things up a little. Season 1 featured only heterosexual couples in the experiment, with everyone pairing up with another person of the opposite sex. However, Jarette Jones revealed in Netflix's announcement video that Season 2 will feature members of the LGBTQ+ community, as it's made up of queer contestants who are mostly women. Netflix doubled down on the big reveal in the description of the YouTube video, confirming, "The Ultimatum premieres April 6, followed by a queer season coming soon."

Kinetic Content's Chris Coelen has also dished a little on the newbies, telling The Hollywood Reporter, "The cast of participants in season two is a very different set of participants than we saw on season one. This is a very big, common question, and a huge milestone for people who are interested in getting married. Just setting up the experience and the stakes of that, and then just allowing them to really go through this in the way that makes sense for them. It turned out to be very different, but equally as great, as season one."

When will Season 2 air?

With Jarrette Jones admitting in Netflix's music video that the cast for "The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On" Season 2 had already been confirmed, that kind of suggests that the second season could be coming fairly soon. Kinetic Content's Chris Coelen also confirmed the theory that more episodes are well underway and filming may have kicked off not long after filming for Season 1 ended. He told The Hollywood Reporter in May 2022, "We're already well into season two, and it's amazing. Honestly, it's so good — stories are so interesting."

There's no official release date for new episodes just yet, though, but Season 1 premiered in April 2022, a month after it was announced following the end of "Love Is Blind" Season 2. That means Netflix could wish to stick to the same month for the new season for 2023 or could change things up completely and spring a surprise on us with new episodes debuting before the end of 2022.
