After the success of its reality dating series, Love is Blind, Netflix created another reality show called The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On. The show was created in 2022 after Love is Blind Season 2.

Unlike other dating shows where they try to look for someone, The Ultimatum actually has a different format.

Contestants enter the show with their long-time beau in the hope of getting an answer: will they get married or move on?

After the first season of the show, Netflix has released a second season with a different clientele in mind. This time around, they brought together queer couples for The Ultimatum: Queer Love.

Initially, this was intended to be the second season of The Ultimatum: Marry or Move On. But while in post-production, Netflix decided that it would be an entirely new show.

The Ultimatum: Queer Love follows a group of women and non-binary individuals over the course of eight weeks as they spend time together at a luxurious resort.

While there, they also get the chance to know the other contestants on the show and ultimately make the decision if they would like to get married or not.

It sounds a little harsh, but it's probably a way for some couples to decide whether they would like to take the next step in their relationship or not.
