Netflix has doubled down on its commitment to hit reality series The Circle, renewing it through season 5. The second season premiered earlier this year on the streaming giant. It had previously been renewed through season 3, which Netflix has said will premiere later this fall rather than next year.
The second season saw DeLeesa Unique crowned as the winner.
Aside from The Circle, Netflix has also renewed Indian Matchmaking and The American Barbecue Showdown for second seasons.
Netflix also announced an initiative to launch the largest reality casting call ever inviting fans to apply for their favorite type of Netflix reality shows on NetflixReality.com.
"Whether you love competition or cooking, dating or decor, style or a social experiment, we might have a show for you -- either now or someday soon," said Brandon Riegg, VP of Unscripted and Documentary Series in a blog post. Just select a category and submit your casting video to be considered for future seasons. To register, you must be 18 years or older, and right now we’re focused on the US, Canada, and the UK. No need for ring lights or glam, just be the real you!"

Executive producers for Studio Lambert are Stephen Lambert and Tim Harcourt, with Lauren Hicks, Charlotte Smith, and Sarah Fay for season 3 and Toni Ireland, Sarah Fay, and Stephen Yemoh for seasons 4 and 5. Executive Producers for Motion Content Group are Richard Foster and Chet Fenster.
