Unlike its UK counterpart, The Circle US will be returning to Netflix for a third, fourth and even a fifth season.
The streaming giant has now revealed the details of the forthcoming series ahead of its much-anticipated return. The four-part season will be available for streaming from Wednesday, September 8th, 2021, with a new episode, gracing the platform every week before the finale airs on September 29th, 2021.
There will be a massive battle between eight contestants for a whopping $100,000 cash prize. Will the genuine person win, or will the money be taken away by the most cunning catfish? We have to stay tuned to find out.
Brandon Riegg, the Vice President of the unscripted and documentary content at Netflix, stated that the renewal of the show is a result of the incredible success it had turned out to be when “more than 14 million households” tuned in to watch the second season within a month of its arrival. He stated, “Thanks to the overwhelming response, we’ve already renewed the show for two more seasons”.
He confirmed that “the talented and quick-witted Michelle Buteau will return to host both seasons”.
After airing for three seasons, The Circle UK was cancelled earlier this year. Although, Netflix confirmed after the cancellation that they were in talks to revive the show, which aired on Channel 4. Negotiations are ongoing between the programme’s producer Studio Lambert and the streaming service.
