‘Are You the One?’ Season 9 is airing primarily on Paramount+

As fans recall, Are You the One? aired from 2014 to 2019 for eight seasons on MTV. But for its ninth season, the show is moving from broadcast television to streaming.

Are You the One? Season 9 will air on Paramount+, MTV’s parent company’s streaming service. However, MTV will show the season 9 premiere on Wednesday, Jan. 18, at 9:32 p.m. ET. But to access the entire season, fans must get a Paramount+ account.

The streaming service will drop episodes weekly, starting on Jan. 18. And by all accounts, Are You the One? Season 9 will follow the same premise as previous iterations.

‘Are You the One?’ fans share their expectations for season 9

After Paramount+ released the Are You the One? Season 9 trailer, fans jumped on Reddit to discuss the upcoming season. And some are not impressed.

“I lowkey have a low expectations for this season due to the older cast because I feel like they’re more mature. Therefore, they were be less petty drama or fight or love triangle, and I live for that,” the original poster said. “But anyways, I can’t judge too soon, but if they all lovey-dovey and like all act a 12 yrs cartoon, I’ll be so disappointed [please] be immature adults.”

One fan reassured them and said, “I watch a similar dating show on OWN where most of the contestants are in their 30s and 40s, and there’s plenty drama to be had. I’m really excited for the new season just because of that [to be honest].”

And in another Reddit thread, someone wrote, “It looks so good too! The production quality really improves from MTV’s.”

“Bit of a bummer it won’t be another equal love season,” a Reddit user pointed out. “But I’m so glad to see the show make a return.”
