Fox Renews ‘Love Connection’ for Season Two

Announcement Comes After the 'Beat Shazam' Pick-Up

“Love Connection” has been picked-up by Fox for a second season, with an unconfirmed number of new episodes. Andy Cohen will return as host and co-executive producer for season two, along with executive producer Mike Fleiss (“The Bachelor”). The series joins the recently renewed “Beat Shazam,” which it is currently paired with on Thursday.

“Andy Cohen is a phenomenal host, not only because he has brought so much fun to the show but also because he truly wants these participants to find love, and that genuine level of interest enables him to elicit both touching and hilariously awkward dating moments from them,” said Rob Wade, President, Alternative Entertainment and Specials, Fox Broadcasting Company. “I’d also like to thank Mike Darnell and Mike Fleiss, who, along with Andy, have helped redefine this show.”

The revival of the dating show sends hopeful singles on three dates in order to ditch the apps and find true love. Each hour of “Love Connection” features single men and/or women in search of romance. They tell Cohen exactly what they’re looking for in a partner and why they’ve found it so hard to meet Mr. or Mrs. Right. The series is produced by Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television and Next Entertainment in association with Telepictures Productions.
