NBCUniversal-owned Bravo Media has placed an order to Universal Television Alternative Studio for the classic dating series Blind Date.

The newly updated format features couples from diverse ethnicities, ages and sexual orientations, while exploring social media trends. Each half-hour episode will feature strangers who are paired up and sent off on a blind date.

Cameras will follow their every move as a narrator provides commentary with the aid of infographics, animation and thought bubbles to ensure nothing goes unsaid.

Billy Taylor will serve as executive producer for Universal Television Alternative Studio.

An air date for the upcoming reboot of Blind Date has yet to be announced, and there has been no decision on who will take up hosting duties, either.

Fronted by Roger Lodge, the original Blind Date series debuted in 1999 and ran for 10 seasons, airing a total of 1440 episodes.
