Netflix‘s breakout hit The Circle is back for a second season. The show, which gained popularity last year, showed eight strangers being quarantined, only able to communicate and participate in challenges via a speech-to-text social media app. The Black Mirror style reality show was ahead of its time, as it foreshadowed what the world would eventually be doing in the 2020 pandemic. Now, that same series is back with an all-new cast gearing up to try and win the cash prize of $100,000. So, who’s been cast in season 2? What will it entail? Get those answers, and more, below.
Meet the Cast of The Circle Season 2
From young and old, to famous and fresh-faced, there’s a relatable quality in every one of these eight contestants. Learn a little bit more about the cast of The Circle season 2 below.
Jack is a college student, finishing up his degree in economics from the University of Chicago. The 20-year-old is originally from New Haven, Connecticut, and seems to be an all-around fun loving guy. He’s the youngest one of the season 2 cast, but don’t think that means he won’t have some smart things to say. We’re sure this savvy kid can hold his own.

Lee may be the oldest cast member, but that only means he has a lot of wisdom to impart. He’s accomplished a lot of the years: he’s an author of LGBTQIA literature, and writes under the pen name Kris Cook. Originally from Dallas, Texas, he’s vivacious and ready to take on this new challenge in his life. It’ll be interesting to see if he connects as easily online as he does in books!

If you’re a Netflix super fan, then you already know Chloe’s name. Before joining season 2 of The Circle, she appeared on a different reality show called Too Hot to Handle. The UK-born 22-year-old is a model, reality TV star, and a self-made celebrity. She’s amassed 1.4 million IG followers, and was hailed as one of the “breakout stars” from Too Hot to Handle. Wonder if the same will be said for her turn on The Circle? Only one way to find out!

Any other details on The Circle season 2?
As we mentioned earlier, the idea of the show is that strangers are separated, and only communicate through social media, essentially. In this season, they can choose to meet up with one player face to face, but they don’t have to. Would some people be brave enough to take that chance – especially when they really don’t know who’s who? They can really be anyone they want. They could create a totally fake profile if that’s what they think will get them noticed, because the name of the game is to be popular. The more popular or likeable they are, there’s more of a chance for any girl or guy from the cast to win that prize.
Chloe’s considered a celebrity name amongst the cast thanks to her Too Hot to Handle background, but, there’s an even bigger name making an appearance on season 2. Lance Bass! Yes, you read that right: Lance Bass of the boy band NSYNC. It’s unclear when or how exactly he fits in to all of this, but one thing’s for sure: it certainly stuns the rest of the cast. Safe to say season 2’s going to be a wild ride.
