A fresh batch of singles is poised for the Love Is Blind pods. 

In a trailer out Thursday, Netflix offered a look at the messiness that comes with dating on a reality TV show that asks whether people can fall in love with and get engaged to people they've never laid eyes on.

"It's scary, but I'm here because I'm looking for a husband," one cast member says in voice-over. Another questions if he could really meet his wife at the grocery store. Another, later in the trailer, suggests swapping fiancees with a fellow single.

On Wednesday, Netflix officially introduced the new cast members. This season will start with about 30 singles, mostly ranging from their mid 20s to mid 30s. Professions include real estate, nursing, fitness, marketing and others. 

In the intro video, the cast tells the camera what they're looking for (a best friend, an alpha, a teammate, someone to laugh at their jokes) and which of their traits might get on a partner's nerves.

"I have terrible allergies, so I'm super sneezy all the time," said ICU nurse practitioner Kalekia.

Loren, a medical device rep, is fond of playing very loud music at home, and sales executive Matt is too excited in the mornings. 

At the start of each season, singles talk to each other through the wall between two adjoining pods. It's only after they get engaged that they meet face-to-face. Each season culminates in a round of weddings, where the surviving couples decide if they want to get hitched. So far, the show has yielded four marriages, two of which have ended in divorce -- and extra drama post-filming. 

Season 3 is set to come out on Netflix on Oct. 19.
