Talking about the timeline of Love Is Blind Season 3, it was filmed in June 2021. Similarly, the After the Altar episode was filmed in late August 2022. On the other hand, the reunion episode was shot in late October 2022.
Love Is Blind is a Netflix original dating reality TV series with an intriguing format that can be compared to how dating has become increasingly reliant on virtual media in today's world. The show follows 12 men and 12 women as they interact with each other for ten days without seeing each other. After this initial period, they make their choices public and attempt to form a relationship with the person of their choice.
When the show first debuted on Netflix, it quickly became one of the most popular shows. The contestants go through ten days of speed dating, where they can interact with each other from their individual pods but cannot see the person with whom they are conversing. They meet for the first time in person only after they get engaged.
Love Is Blind: After the Altar is the show's reunion special, which reunites all of the cast members after about two years. Now that the reunion episode of the third season has arrived on the streaming platform, many people have been wanting to know the timeline of Season 3. Well, we've got you covered.
Love Is Blind Season 3 Timeline: While the Show Was Filmed in 2021, the After the Altar and Reunion Episodes Were Filmed in 2022!
If the filming schedule for Love Is Blind: After the Altar Season 3 surprises you, you're not alone — it deviates significantly from previous seasons of the show. For example, the second After the Altar was filmed in March 2021, after Season 2 had already aired. The first, similarly, was shot after viewers had met Jessica Batten (@jessicabatten_) and company. But, as Netflix continues to release new seasons of Love Is Blind (and, yes, at least two more are on the way), it's understandable that the filming timelines might become a little tangled.
When it comes to determining when certain reality TV moments were filmed, look no further than Instagram. For some cast members, Instagram serves as a visual diary of their lives. Even if an NDA prohibits them from posting photos from their on-camera moments until after they have aired, cast members will occasionally post innocent selfies with vague captions and nondescript backgrounds.
We noticed that the entire Love Is Blind: After the Altar Season 3 cast took a break from the app in August 2022 after scrolling through their Instagram feeds. That includes the most active cast members (Zanab, Raven, Alexa, and Cole). To be more specific, check out Bartise and Nancy's Instagram accounts. In After the Altar, take a look at what they're wearing to Alexa's birthday party.
Both photos are also geotagged in Dallas, Texas, and Alexa's birthday party was held at DEC on Dragon St. in Dallas. All of this seems to indicate that After the Altar was filmed in August 2022, before Season 3 premiered. But wait, isn't Alexa's birthday party supposed to coincide with all of their one-year anniversaries?
Alexa and Brennon Lemieux got married on June 30, 2021, according to marriage license reports, and Colleen and Matt got married on July 2, 2021. Alexa's birthday is September 28th, according to her Instagram. As a result, the party depicted in After the Alter is a late anniversary / early birthday celebration.
Love Is Blind: After the Altar Filming Location!
The first season of Love Is Blind was primarily shot in Atlanta, Georgia. According to the show's creator, Chris Coelen, the goal of the show is to give people a real chance at a long-term relationship, which is why they didn't want geography or distance to be a barrier for potential couples. One of the casting criteria was that the applicants live in the same area. Is this to say that Love Is Blind: After the Altar was also shot in Atlanta? Here's what we know so far!
Love Is Blind: After the Altar was shot in Atlanta, Georgia. It is not only Georgia's capital but also the state's most populous city. The city has an interesting skyline because most of the landmarks resemble architectural styles from the Northeast or Midwest. The majority of commercial and institutional structures follow global architectural trends.
Atlanta has also become a film and television production hotspot, owing to its generous income tax breaks. It also houses some of the industry's most well-known studios, including Tyler Perry Studios, EUE/Screen Gems Ltd., Williams Street Productions, and Turner Studios. In fact, the first season's speed dating phase was shot at Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayetteville, where the pods were set up. As a result, it only makes sense for the production team to return to Atlanta to catch up with the freshman cast members.
