It is being reported that Netflix has picked up The Circle for another two seasons, which will take it to at least Season 5. This is the second two-season renewal for the competition series, which is only at Season 2, having wrapped its sophomore run three months ago.

Based on the British reality series of the same name, The Circle isolates contestants in their own apartments where they communicate via a social media app. This enables them to either be themselves or present completely different identities to each other in order to sound appealing. The contestants rate each other, with the top vote-getters becoming the influencers and gaining the ability to block somebody from the circle. Ultimately, the highest rated player takes home $100,000.

Look for Season 3 of The Circle this fall, with Seasons 4 and 5 following in 2022.
