Netflix is seemingly pretty happy with its latest reality competition offerings and will be bringing more servings them to our TVs soon.
Netflix announced on Monday that it is renewing The Circle, Indian Matchmaking, and The American Barbecue Showdown. The Circle has been renewed for seasons 4 and 5 ahead of the season 3 premiere. The other two series have been renewed for their second seasons.
Netflix revealed that 14M households watched The Circle season 2 within 28 days of its initial release.
Another new series is currently launching a massive casting call around Austin, Texas that will be called Roaring Twenties.
“Reality TV is a powerful genre. It has the ability to make you invested in who is going to win the big competition or find true love, or at least a good showmance. It also has the ability to bring people together from all walks of life. We love to hear from viewers who feel inspired and accepted after seeing themselves reflected in our shows. After all, what is reality TV if it doesn’t represent real people?,” Brandon Riegg, VP of Unscripted and Documentary Series for Nettflix said recently.
“Whether you love competition or cooking, dating or decor, style or a social experiment, we might have a show for you — either now or someday soon,” he went on to add.
