Netflix’s The Ultimatum is returning with a twist: season 2 features an all-queer cast who are testing whether to remain together forever.

A new batch of couples are ready to either marry or move in the new season of The Ultimatum. Named The Ultimatum: Queer Love, the upcoming installment features an all-queer cast of female and non-binary stars.

Like pairs in The Ultimatum: Marry Or Move On, one partner is ready to tie the knot, while the other is hesitant to make things legal. So to decide whether to commit forever, the couples will split for eight weeks as they date other co-stars.

The cast must choose whether to break up or marry, so let’s get acquainted with the Netflix stars making the decision of a lifetime.

Where is The Ultimatum: Queer Love filmed?

The dating show was reportedly filmed in San Diego, California, meaning some cast members had to relocate as the experiment requires the stars to live in apartments together for several weeks.

Meanwhile, The Ultimatum: Marry Or Move On was shot in Austin, Texas as all couples were either from or resided in the city for work.

Episodes 1 to 4 of The Ultimatum: Queer Love airs on Netflix on Wednesday, May 24. The remaining episodes will release on May 31, and June 7.
