Love Island took over our lives for the summer and now we’re not sure what to do with our evenings.
Now it looks like we have a brand new dating series that fill that Love Island-shaped gap in our lives.
Netflix has never let us down when it comes to reality TV shows (Selling Sunset anyone?) and they are now coming back with a brand new dating series.
Dated and Related drops later this year and will definitely get you through those autumn blues.
So what is it about?
According to Netflix: “Imagine having to think about your sibling dating… how they flirt, how they treat their partners, and what their signature moves are. In this brand-new reality dating series, pairs of siblings will be seeing each other’s love life up close and personal as they search for ‘the one’ together.
“Having the person who knows you better than anyone should help you navigate the tricky world of dating. But will they act as the ultimate wingman and help you find love? Or scupper your plans and call you out on all your bullsh*t? Either way, it might just be Awkward. As. Hell.”
Let’s meet the cast!
Mady and Lily Bajors
The Bajor sisters are everything but predictable! 20-year-old Mady and 22-year-old Lily thrive on spontaneity and people are instantly drawn to their positive, care-free energy.
They don’t take life too seriously and, because of this, they have a tendency to take a joke too far… especially when it involves each other’s love lives. Mady and Lily live for making their prospective dates squirm and they’re always meddling in each other’s relationship.
However, this comes from a good place and the sisters are fiercely close and protective of one another. Mady and Lily see the meddling as a test… if the date isn’t overwhelmed, he’s a keeper!
Kaz and Kieran Bishop
British twin brothers Kaz and Kieran (30) share everything, including friendships, an apartment and a tendency to get bored in relationships. However, their approaches to dating are completely different.
Heartthrob firefighter and self-confessed player, Kaz, can’t stop playing the field and juggling multiple women at once. While smooth talking socialite, Kieran, wears his heart on his sleeve, having spent over 10 years of his life in a relationship with his childhood sweetheart.
He’s obsessively picky when it comes to choosing a partner. And neither of them will settle for anything less than perfection.
Jason Cohen and Chris Hahn
Meet South Jersey’s hottest and most popular duo, Jason and Chris (27)! These cousins are competitive by nature. Since they were kids, there’s not a sport they haven’t mastered, from surfing to wrestling – and now, the South Jersey club scene is just another playground.
When it comes to dating, the two don’t have to try hard at all. With their good looks, charm and VIP service wherever they go, girls are practically queuing to speak to them. Jason and Chris are loving single life but if the right girl were to come along, they can see themselves settling down… the problem is the ‘right girl’ seems to come along every weekend.
Dyman and Devon Miller
25-year-old Dyman and 21-year-old Deyon are siblings that are best friends, they have each other’s backs and are extremely supportive in what the other chooses to do.
With Deyon finally turning 21 this year, Dyman is excited to finally take him out to the clubs, show him the ropes and be the best wing woman. Dyman has had a disastrous love life in the past and is ready to dive head first into a brand new dating pool, Deyon’s love life has only consisted of casual things but he’s open and willing for whatever comes his way.
Diana and Nina Javidi Parsijani
29-year-old twin sisters Diana and Nina share absolutely everything, including equally disastrous dating lives. Hopeless romantic Diana falls in love easily and is quickly left hurt by men. On the other hand, heartbreaker and ice queen, Nina – who’s rarely single – has multiple guys on the go at once.
Both are sceptical about men and dating and they desperately need to break the chain of toxic relationships they find themselves in.
Corrina and Joey Roppo
23-year-old Corrina and 28-year-old Joey are hopeless romantics and both are looking for their forever partner who they can settle down with. The only problem is, they have to be super hot! Unfortunately, both are failing to find someone who matches that description and has the personality to go along with it.
Corrina is an all-singing and jazz hands girl who wants to find her Disney prince but instead, she’s kissed some toxic frogs along the way. Joey is a serial dater but with an eye for the perfect Instagram girl, he’s struggling to find anyone who lives up to his expectations in real life. They are both kind-hearted and would like to have a stable relationship with someone who matches their Christian values, fits into their active lifestyle and makes a killer addition to their volleyball team.
And there will be plenty of surprises along the way.
Dated and Related drops on Netflix on September 2nd
