Netflix's The Circle Season 2 Release Date Announced For April, Episodes Won't Release All At Once

Netflix won't release every episode of The Circle at the same time.

Netflix's popular unscripted competition series, The Circle, is coming back for a second season this April. The streaming company said in a blog post that The Circle will debut its first batch of episodes for its sophomore season on April 14. Netflix also announced the release schedule for its other popular dating show, Too Hot to Handle.

The Circle's first four episodes will premiere on April 14. Episodes 5-8 will then debut on April 21, with episodes 9-12 coming on April 28. The series finale will be available to watch on May 5. Netflix said it's releasing new episodes on a staggered basis instead of all at once so viewers have time to pore over the details and dissect the episodes.

The Circle Season 2 Schedule:

  • April 14: Episodes 1-4
  • April 21: Episodes 5-8
  • April 28: Episodes 9-12
  • May 5: Finale

The Circle is a dating show where contestants live in an apartment by themselves--highly relatable in 2020--and can only communicate with other contestants by social media. No one knows who anyone really is.

Netflix also confirmed the release timing for its other popular contest show, Too Hot to Handle, which has the unique twist where contestants can't touch each other.

"Although these shows may have felt a little too real at times, fans all over the world rallied around them with an energy and excitement we could not have imagined," Netflix said. "We can’t wait for our members to see what's in store in their second seasons. We've added new twists and surprises to keep the games fresh--and all new players that we think fans will love rooting for."

Too Hot to Handle Schedule

  • New episodes premiere every Wednesday in June
