If you loved The Circle, then you’ll be pleased to know the all-new episodes are arriving this month.
Netflix recently dropped the first official trailer for The Circle season three, and it looks just as dramatic as its predecessors.
The trailer introduces viewers to the all-new contestants. Similar to seasons one and two of The Circle, the competition series documents the players as they get to know each other online. The goal is to avoid getting eliminated from the social networking app, which can be done only if their peers believe their online profile accurately represents them as a person. As in, they’re not a catfish.
“In a world where social media reigns supreme, these players will use everything they have to influence their way to the top,” the narrator says in the clip.
After each round, the eliminated person reveals their identity to one remaining participant, creating a mystery element that drives paranoia. (Think of it as a cross between Catfish and Big Brother.)
If there’s one key takeaway from the trailer, it’s that no one—we repeat, no one—is holding back. “Winning is not only an option, it is the only option,” one person says. Another adds, “I’ll be anything you want me to be.”
Season one of The Circle premiered back in January 2020, followed by season two in April 2021. Luckily, fans don’t have to wait very long for the third installment, which will premiere on September 8. (New episodes will hit Netflix every Wednesday until the finale on September 29.)
