Although season 2 of Netflix’s hit show Too Hot to Handle just aired its last episodes, fans already can’t wait for the highly anticipated season 3.
Season 2 of Too Hot to Handle just wrapped, but some new details about season 3 are already dropping. After its premiere in 2020, Netflix announced that the popular dating show was renewed for two more seasons. The show became one of the most streamed shows on Netflix during COVID-19 lockdowns, and season 2 continued to draw in a huge audience. After a highly entertaining season 2, fans can hardly wait for the next season.
Narrated by a virtual assistant, or “talking air freshener,” Lana, Too Hot to Handle follows 10 single contestants who live together in a villa looking for romance and compete for a $100,000 grand prize. However, this isn’t your typical dating show based in paradise. Unlike dating shows like Love Island, contestants cannot kiss or have any sexual activity with one another. If they break the rules, the prize money drops, which ends up causing plenty of drama. While there’s still a lot to learn for the upcoming season, a few details have been confirmed.

Season 2 and 3 were filmed back-to-back earlier this year, so the third season has already wrapped. An insider told Variety that contestants for seasons 2 and 3 were cast at the same time. To keep the show’s premise under wraps from contestants, who signed up for the show not knowing exactly what it was, production titled the show “Parties in Paradise” throughout the casting process. The contestants only found out what they were signing up for once they made it to the villa. Since contestants still had no idea what they were getting into, fans can expect an eventful season 3 with plenty of twists and turns to keep fans wanting more. Although casting is already complete, there’s no word on who might be part of the show yet. But if the past two seasons are anything to go by, fans can expect a group of good-looking 20-something-year-old influencers ready to grace the island.
Unlike season 1, which was filmed in Mexico, the two new seasons had a change of scenery and were filmed in Turks and Caicos. In season 2, contestants stayed in a luxurious villa called The Turtle Tail Estate. The villa sits on a 4.57-acre peninsula and costs $10,000 per night to rent. Season 3 may have filmed on the same island, but there is no word yet if they filmed at The Turtle Tail Estate. Seeing that the two seasons were filmed back-to-back, it is likely, and financially smart, to remain at the same villa.
There’s also no news on the release date for the third season. Seeing that the two seasons were filmed back-to-back, it’s a safe guess that fans may not have to wait that long for the highly binge-able show. However, Too Hot to Handle has only been released in the summer and serves as the perfect summer show. If Netflix decides to stick with tradition, we won’t see another season until the summer of 2022.
