Who would have thought ‘The Circle Brazil’ could match up to the hype of its parent show ‘The Circle,’ let alone surpass it? Netflix’s first Brazilian reality competition show, ‘The Circle Brazil’ commences with nine contestants who can only contact each other via a social media app called the Circle. The contestants are allowed to adopt the identity of their choice, even catfish.
Touted as a blend of ‘Big Brother’ and ‘Catfish,’ the show concluded in March 2020, and fans are desperately waiting for an update on another season. In case you are one, you must be wondering: Will there be ‘The Circle Brazil’ season 2? If yes, when will it release? Well, here’s everything we know.
The Circle Brazil Season 2 Release Date
‘The Circle Brazil’ premiered on March 11, 2020, on Netflix. Deviating from its usual pattern of dropping all the episodes at once, Netflix followed a weekly four-episode release format with the show, which wrapped up on March 25, 2020, after airing 12 episodes.
As far as season 2 is concerned, here’s what we know. The first season of the show managed to entertain the audiences as well as critics. The eccentric and honest personalities of several contestants like Dumaresq and Marina received major love from fans who took to social media to express their admiration. Considering its popularity, there’s a high chance that the network might renew the show for another season. Whenever that happens, we expect ‘The Circle Brazil’ season 2 to release sometime in March 2021, on Netflix.

What is The Circle Brazil About?
The show begins with the contestants being put in separate rooms of the same building. They are restricted from meeting face-to-face and can only interact with each other via a messaging app called The Circle. Each contestant then fills his/her bio with all the relevant information and is given an exciting choice to either compete as their own self or adopt an entirely/partially fake personality, i.e., cat-fishing.
The game involves a rating system wherein the contestants each other and the two people with the highest ratings become Influencers. They have the power to block the other contestant from the game. This goes on till the finale, where the final rating decides the winner who wins a cash prize of R$300,000, i.e., US$67,000.
As it’s a reality show, ‘The Circle Brazil’ season 2 will follow the same format as season 1.
