Hit RTÉ 2 dating show on the hunt for rural-based singletons for new series

Real People, real lives and real romance. 'Love in the Country' sees six rural-based singletons take the bull by the horns in their search for love.

An antidote to the usual urban reality shows, 'Love in the Country' is a heart-warming, funny and authentic dating show which has been a huge hit with TV viewers since it first aired earlier this year.

The show, hosted by Anna Geary, unites single people living and working in country areas with urbanites in search of their ideal partners - and a dramatically different lifestyle. With remote working the new normal, more and more city dwellers are open for a move from town to country, on the hunt for a different way of life. For many, the inspiration to actually make that dream a reality, is meeting someone special and falling in love.

Kite Entertainment is now casting for the second series of this hit show, and the makers of the RTÉ show is on the lookout for single men and women who find themselves distanced from the urban dating scene.

"We are seeking people who are ready to explore the possibility of finding a match and are open to introducing a potential partner to the authentic experiences of country life," a spokesperson for the show explained this week

Speaking about the new six-part series, Anna Geary said: “It’s very exciting to get back on the road, travelling the length and breadth of Ireland, helping people of all ages find love. I get to be almost like their wing woman, their confidante, cheering them on.”
