Netflix has launched three Indian reality TV series for 2022, giving us a first look at social currency and IRL – In Real Love, both of which were first announced last year. IRL comes from MTV Roadies creator Raghu Ram, following four singles as they decide whether to partner online or in real life (IRL). In social currency, eight influencers had no access to their online accounts and had to make an impact without influence. Plus, we’ve got a fresh look at the second season of Seema Khan, Maheep Kapoor, Bhavana Pandey and Neelam Kothari Soni’s return in Season 2 of The Wonderful Lives of Bollywood Wife. Finally, Netflix India has revealed the full cast of Indian Matchmaking Season 2, which will hit theaters on Wednesday, August 10.
