MTV Renews 'Are You the One?' Dating Series for Second Season

The announcement was made ahead of Tuesday's season closer.

MTV has renewed social dating series Are You the One? for a second season.

Ahead of Tuesday's finale at 11 p.m. ET/PT, the Viacom-owned network has greenlighted another run of the "social experiment on modern love." The new season will feature 20 new singles in another location where they will be faced with the challenge of figuring out who their matches are.

"Coming off ratings success from the first season, this social dating experiment continuously maintained strong numbers and developed an incredibly loyal fan base, proving there is an appetite for finding love. It is the #1 original series across all TV in its time period with young people ages 12-34," said Susanne Daniels, MTV president of programming.

Are You the One? will reunite the current cast April 1 at 11 p.m. ET/PT for a one-hour special.

The concept came from executive producers are Howard Schultz, Rob LaPlante and Jeff Spangler, with Scott Jeffress also executive producing. Lauren Dolgen, Tiffany Lea Williams, Maura Madden and Matthew Parillo are executives in charge for MTV.
