With Aaron Saidman, Eli Holzman, and J.C. Begley serving as executive producers, Smriti Mundhra, the show’s creator, expressed her hope that the second season will live up to the precedent set by the first: “The response to Season 1 of Indian Matchmaking was overwhelming, and we’re thrilled to be back with more episodes that explore the rollercoaster of emotions and tough conversations on the journey to finding love.”
When Indian Matchmaking made its debut in 2020, it attracted a good amount of interest because of its idea and for highlighting South Asian traditions. However, the reality show came under fire for encouraging prejudice based on caste, skin color, and gender stereotypes. Despite this, a second season was ordered with an open casting call in August 2021. Netflix then approved a third season early in 2022.
