angel: The reality series ‘Indian Matchmaking’ starring Mumbai’s top matchmaker Seema Taparia is making a comeback with its second season. As reported by ‘Variety’, the eight-episode second season will premiere on OTT platform Netflix on August 10. The new season will feature hour-long episodes during which Taparia will work with Millennials around the world in search of their perfect match. Tapriya will once again draw on her decades of experience and traditional methods to help lucky singles find the one.
Seema told Variety, “The love I have received from the fans of the show is amazing. Matchmaking is my passion, and it is a pleasure to share my work with audiences across the globe. Seema is back from Mumbai. Has been!”

Let us embark on a journey to find love.”
