Nick Lachey, co-host of The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On, opened Season 2 by stating the obvious: “Giving an ultimatum isn’t exactly a good way to get someone else to do what you want.” The cast concluded the season with a 100% success rate for engagements, at least as of the reunion episode, which was filmed earlier this summer, thus this warning turned out to be unwarranted.
The reality TV franchise itself is also doing well: Netflix acquired two seasons of The Ultimatum without having seen them, and a spinoff, The Ultimatum: Queer Love, has already been released. Fans will have to wait to find out The Ultimatum’s destiny because the streaming service has not yet renewed it for Season 3.
What the creators has to say?
The idea behind The Ultimatum has never changed, regardless of the season or iteration: Over the course of eight weeks, a cast of couples “on the verge of marriage” must make the crucial choice of getting engaged or calling it quits. Creator Chris Coelen said of the programme, “I love the show because it’s very relatable,” to The Hollywood Reporter following the first episode. “I admire the participants for giving it their all and giving it everything they had to the experience and the show.”
In March, Coelen offered his opinion on the reasons why his shows are so popular. These include Netflix’s Love Is Blind and Perfect Match, Lifetime’s Married at First Sight, and ABC’s Claim to Fame. “Most of the reality television programming is crap,” And part of the reason for that, according to the CEO of Kinetic Content, is that people treat it like a factory. “The storytelling we perform on our shows is very original. We make an effort to probe deeply into people’s truths. It just involves attempting to comprehend all the facets of what makes those folks human. We are not fabricating tales.
Cast of The Ultimatum Season 3
There is presently no reason to suppose that Nick and Vanessa Lachey won’t return as co-hosts if the programme is renewed, but it will take some time before the new cast of couples is revealed. Keep in mind that Season 2’s cast was only announced by Netflix one month before the first set of episodes aired.
Possibility of a Season 3 release for The Ultimatum
If Netflix confirms that The Ultimatum Season 3 is in production, the streaming service might then provide more information regarding the anticipated release date. If it occurs, there will likely be a longer turnaround than usual for linear TV networks between the conclusion of filming and the premiere date.
Because Netflix is a global service, Coelen previously told Variety that “they want a lead time of several months because they want to do subtitling and dubbing for their viewers all over the world.” However, I don’t believe it actually matters in any way, shape, or form. The most engaging aspect are the stories.
