The popular social media competition The Circle is back for a second season, having premiered on April 14.
Much like its predecessor, the season will follow eight new contestants who are competing for each other’s loyalty and approval to win the extravagant cash prize of $100k.
The biggest catch of the show is: You are allowed to be whoever you want to be. In this online world, the competitors only interact through the show’s exclusive social media platform, The Circle. Here they are able to manipulate — and catfish— each other into forming alliances and “blocking” those who won’t fit with the vibe.
Netflix writes, “Season 2 of The Circle returns bigger and better, with more twists, turns, and shade thrown in all 13 episodes!” However, the series is doing something different this year and will be dropping new episodes at certain times over the next few weeks.
What is The Circle?
Premiering earlier this week, The Circle Season 2 has already left a huge mark on Netflix. It is currently number four in the list of Netflix programs trending in the United States, and with there being multiple release dates over the next month, the series is expected to stay at the top for a while.
The Circle is a must-watch reality program and comes highly rated. On IMDb, the series has a 7.5 out of 10, and on Google, audiences have rated the series as a 4.6 out of 5.
