Viacom-owned youth-skewing cable net MTV is preparing to launch the latest season of its dating format Are You the One?, but with a new twist: this is the first season with an all-sexually fluid cast.

Are You the One? (pictured), which first premiered in 2014, sees 16 singles heading to Hawaii in search of their perfect romantic match and a US$1 million cash prize. For the first time, all of the singles identify as sexually fluid, meaning there are no gender limitations on who they might pair up with.

Also joining the series is Dr. Frankie, a relationship expert who helps the singles navigate dating and their own behaviors and priorities.

Actor, model and entertainment reporter Terrence J. returns as host.

The series is produced by Lighthearted. Lighthearted’s Jeff Spangler and Rob LaPlante serve as executive producers along with Matt Odgers.

The new season of Are You the One? will premiere June 26 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
