Remember when you made a summoning circle for The Circle season 3 and it was all extremely meta? Well, good news for you, it worked: Netflix’s deranged reality show is coming back for a third season sometime in the distant future. In case you aren’t already fully on board with this truly addictive series, it’s a little different than other shows lurking on Netflix. Mostly because The Circle doesn’t drop all at once for everyone to binge—instead, it kinda does things ~the old-fashioned way~ by dropping episodes in weekly installments. We have a full breakdown of how The Circle works if you keep scrolling, and here’s what we know about season 3 so far…including how you (YES, YOU!) can apply to be a contestant:

Season 3 Is One Thousand Percent Happening
Okay, so here’s the deal: Netflix renewed The Circle for season 2 and season 3 at the same time, thank god. But…when will it drop? At the 2021 Television Critics Association Press Tour, Netflix announced that season 3 will premiere on September 8. Episodes will drop in four parts with the final batch airing on September 29.

This means we don’t have to wait too long to see some new competitors catfish their way to the grand prize. They also announced that the series was renewed for seasons 4 and 5, so there’s more to come!

WHAT Is The Circle?

A reality show hosted by comedian Michelle Buteau that involves contestants being trapped in a large apartment building, where they are essentially in a popularity contest and can communicate only through social media. This means that the players can fully pretend to be other people and catfish each other.

WHAT Is the Prize?

The Circle is an absolutely deranged concept for a show, so perhaps you’re wondering why any human being would voluntarily subject themselves to this. Allow me to tell you: (1) the promise of fame, duh, and (2) a $100,000 cash prize—if they win. (Oh, and the Fan Favorite receives $10,000.)

HOW Do You Win?

Contestants on The Circle are forced to rate their fellow players, and then the top-voted people (aka the “influencers”) vote to “block” (aka eliminate) their fellow contestants until there’s just one person left with the highest rating—who gets to take home $100,000! Alliances form; friends, enemies, and frenemies are made—basically, you’re getting paid to live out a social media nightmare on national television, it’s casual.

If all this sounds intriguing to you, please be advised that Netflix has old episodes of The Circle season 1 available for you to stream, and The Circle season 2 is currently airing weekly. Happy chaotic viewing!
