The fourth season of Love Is Blind may have come to an end at the weekend but the dating drama has only just begun on Netflix, thanks to The Ultimatum: Queer Love.


Arriving in May, this spin-off of the 2022 dating show is a first for Netflix in that it features a cast made up of women and non-binary people.

The series will see five couples come together after reaching a crossroads in their relationships, spending eight weeks getting to know other people before deciding whether to tie the knot with their original partner or choose someone completely different.

Judging by the trailer, it's set to be a spicy series full of tense dinner parties, new connections, a different host and lots of tears. "You said you wanted to marry me but you fell in love with someone else in a week and a half," one exasperated contestant says in the clip.

Here's everything you need to know about The Ultimatum: Queer Love and when it'll arrive on Netflix.

The Ultimatum: Queer Love release date

The Ultimatum: Queer Love lands on Netflix on Wednesday 24th May.

The first four episodes will land on the steamer on 24th May, with new episodes dropping each Wednesday.

There will be 10 episodes in total, with the final two arriving on Wednesday 7th June.

What is The Ultimatum: Queer Love?

This brand new Netflix spin-off is a member of The Ultimatum universe – however this time, the cast is made up of five new couples who are all women and non-binary people.

Each of the couples is reaching a crossroads in their relationship: one of the pair is ready for marriage, however their partner is having doubts – and so an ultimatum is issued.

"In just over eight weeks, each couple will either get married, or get out, after they each choose new potential partners in a life-changing opportunity to get a glimpse of two different futures," Netflix teases.
