The third season of "Love Is Blind" premieres on October 19, with four episodes dropping. But before meeting the new couples among the cast, let's review what happened to "Love Is Blind" couples of yore — specifically, from Season 2, which premiered earlier this year.

The season included six couples: Shaina Hurley and Kyle Abrams; Deepti Vempati and Shake Chatterjee; Iyanna McNeely and Jarrette Jones; Danielle Ruhl and Nick Thompson; Shayne Jansen and Natalie Lee; and Mallory Zapata and Salvador Perez.

Although none of the couples from Season Two remain together now (including the ones who never appeared on the show), some of them have pursued new relationships since the show, while others have taken on passion projects including publishing books, producing podcasts and releasing music.

Take a look at what the cast of Season Two is up to now — and the Season One cast, while you're at it.

The summer after "Love Is Blind" wrapped, they reconnected at a mutual friend's wedding in Greece. "When I saw her in July, I knew at that moment — I’m not ever gonna let her go,” Lardakis said.

Hurley said they bonded over their religious values. Not wanting a repeat of what happened with Abrams, Hurley told TODAY that one of the first things she asked Lardakis was, ‘Do you love Jesus?’”
