Netflix fans, prepare yourselves for the highly anticipated return of all-star dating show “Perfect Match.”

The reality series is back for its sophomore season with a new batch of alumni from the streamer’s various shows searching for their perfect match. We’ve got you covered on everything you need to know about the new installment ahead of the premiere.

Who will star in “Perfect Match” season 2?

After months of waiting, Netflix released the list of names for this season, and let’s just say they’re some notable Netflix names. Let’s break down who will be present for all the shenanigans.

Alright, “Love Is Blind” fans, remember Jessica Vestal from season 6 of the hit series? The single mother was romantically linked with Jimmy Presnell in the pods, who ultimately broke up with her before proposing to fellow “Love Is Blind” star Chelsea Blackwell (aka Megan Fox’s twin.)

Jess had the internet in a frenzy after her viral reaction to the break up prompted the now viral line: “When you see and realize what you missed out on, you are going to choke. You are going to need your EpiPen to open up your airways because you are going to be in disbelief of what you missed out on.”

Well, Jess fans will get to see if she has better luck finding love this time around or ends up giving out more EpiPens.

Meanwhile, a less likely “Love Is Blind” contestant will also enter the chat: Trevor Sova, the contestant who apparently already had a girlfriend before entering the pods. Yup, this should be interesting.

Also “LIB” alumni in the “Perfect Match” cast include  Micah Lussier from season 4 and season 5’s Izzy Zapata.

These are just a few of the 22 singles who will find potential love matches or just stir up trouble in paradise.

Some others include “Squid Game: The Challenge‘s” Bryton ConstantinHarry JowseyNigel Euro, and Christine Obanor of “Too Hot to Handle;” and Jake Cunningham of “The Ultimatum.”

What is the “Perfect Match” season 2’s release date?

You don’t have to wait long for the upcoming installment of “Perfect Match” — Netflix has confirmed the new season will kick off on Friday, June 7.

Who is hosting “Perfect Match” season 2?

“Love is Blind’s” Nick Lachey hosted the show for the first season and is back for “Perfect Match” season 2. His wife and “Love is Blind” co-host, Vanessa Lachey, will not be joining him.

What Is “Perfect Match”?

As Netflix puts it, the series “brings together the most famously single stars of Netflix’s unscripted series to a tropical paradise in an attempt to find love.”

The show is filmed at Casa Naga, a luxury villa in Panama’s beach town of Playa Bonita. But don’t let the serene location fool you, “Perfect Match” is essentially the Hunger Games of dating shows.

When the contestants get on the island, they pair up with who they think is their perfect match. The couples are then put to the test with a series of challenges to determine who has the best connection. This is where it gets a little rowdy.

The couple dubbed the ‘most compatible’ gets to bring in a new single for the contestants they believe are struggling to find love. And these “matchmakers” waste no time bringing in new bombshells who will stir things up.

Series creator Chris Coelen says the format makes the dating show experience “more real.”

“If the participants choose to bring these people in or match ’em up with whoever, it’s totally up to them. That’s much more real, and it’s much more fun for them.”

The first season of “Perfect Match” is available to stream now on Netflix.
