Swipe Night: Killer Weekend - What We Know So Far

Did you ever consider that the one thing missing from dating was a murder mystery? Well, you don't have to wonder any longer, as Tinder is coming to save the day with the second season of their original interactive series "Swipe Night," combining entertainment and matchmaking into one successful process. Similar to "Black Mirror: Bandersnatch" and "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy vs the Reverend," "Swipe Night" is based on your choices, and depending on what you choose, you may see a very different story from other viewers.

The first season of the series ran for four episodes in 2019, with new episodes airing on Tinder on Sundays. "Swipe Night" follows a group of friends who are forced to make tough choices to survive the apocalypse when a comet lands on Earth. In order to make various choices throughout the story, you swipe left or right, just as you do when perusing the dating app. Tinder also implemented features into the "Swipe Night" viewing experience that connects you with other Tinder based on your picks in order to encourage more matches.

Now Tinder is back at it again with a new story called "Swipe Night: Killer Weekend," and here's everything we know so far. 

What is the release date of Swipe Night: Killer Weekend?

Luckily for fans of the first "Swipe Night" installment, you won't have to wait long before "Swipe Night: Killer Weekend" starts airing on Tinder. According to Variety, the series is schedule to premiere on November 7, 2021, with the full story being released over the course of three weeks. After each episode, Tinder will encourage members of the app who are participating in "Swipe Night: Killer Weekend" to talk about the series together through the feature called "Fast Chat, which launched in June [and] allows people to talk with each other about certain topics within Tinder before matching." 

While the series is coming out after Halloween, it definitely fits into the spooky horror themes of the fall season. Other new horror projects that are coming out around the same time include "Halloween Kills," which will be released on October 15, 2021, along with "Last Night on Soho" on October 29, 2021 and the long-awaited revival of "Dexter: New Blood" on November 7, 2021.
