Are you waiting for a second season of the dating reality television show The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On? Of course, you are because who wouldn’t want to see The Ultimatum Season 2?
The Ultimatum is the newest addition to the reality dating genre on Netflix, and it has gathered a good fan base in the first season itself. In this show, over the course of eight weeks, six couples get to take a long vacation while deciding whether they should stay together or not. Within each couple, one person has issued the titular Ultimatum to announce that they want to get married now or break up forever. At the end of the show, people could walk away single or in a whole new relationship.
The show is made by the creators of Love is Blind, and most of the couples are in their early-to-mid 20s.
The Ultimatum premiered on Netflix on April 6 with its first batch of episodes. The first season brought all the drama and kept the audience interested, which is why they are eagerly waiting for The Ultimatum Season 2. So, will there be The Ultimatum Season 2?

On March 24, Netflix announced that there would be a second season of the hit original series coming to Netflix soon, and not only this, the streamer has also revealed that The Ultimatum Season 2 will feature an all-queer cast with mostly women, so you can expect the premise to be the same.
In the video, singing about The Ultimatum Season 2, Love is Blind’s Jarrette Jones can be heard saying: “It’s called The Ultimatum and it’s dropping two seasons. One of which is queer with mostly women.”

The Ultimatum Season 2 Release Date
No, there’s no release date for The Ultimatum Season 2 as of now, but the streamer’s press release said the second installment is “coming soon.” It is difficult to predict exactly when The Ultimatum Season 2 will premiere, but hopefully, the second season will release somewhere around early 2023.
What will happen in The Ultimatum Season 2?
According to the announcement made by Netflix, The Ultimatum will be returning for a new season featuring queer contestants, most of whom are women.
There’s no information regarding the plot of the second season, but executive producer Chris Coelen recently spoke to Variety about the appeal of the premise, saying: “It’s based in a very real relatable conversation and situation for many, many people – either you’ve been in that situation or you’ve known people who are in that situation.”
“What’s fascinating is when you actually look at the reasons that people give for not being ready, there is a multitude of reasons – ‘I come from a family background of bad relationships. I don’t want to repeat my past’ or ‘I’m not ready, I’m too young, or ‘I need to be financially stable,” he added.
“There may be some validity to some of those reasons, but the real reason is that they’re not sure that they want to marry this person that they’re with. Most of those things that they say are our excuses, and it’s very common.”
The Ultimatum Season 2 Cast
Nick and Vanessa Lachey hosted the show’s first round, so we can expect the celebrity couple to be back for the new installment. Season 1 of The Ultimatum revolved around six heterosexual couples – Lauren and Nate, Rae and Zay, April and Jake, Alexis and Hunter, Shanique and Randall, and Madlyn and Colby. But in the second season, we’ll see a queer, mostly female cast.
When asked about inclusion, producer Chris Coelen recently told Variety, “…we want to be representative in all kinds of ways and we are figuring out ways to do that.” So, we’re hoping to get an amazing and intriguing season and we can’t wait to find what the makers have in store this time.
How many episodes are there in The Ultimatum Season 1?
The first season comprises 10 episodes with a runtime of 38 to 58 minutes each.
