Like on Netflix's Love Is Blind, contestants on the show don't get to see their date's face - meaning they date each other without seeing what they look like.

When announcing the show, Netflix wrote: "Sexy Beasts is a new dating show where real-life singles sport elaborate makeup and prosthetics to put true blind-date chemistry to the test."

The trailer, released on Wednesday, shows dates dressed as a beaver, a devil, a fox, a panda, a scarecrow, and various alien creatures.

Speaking about the show, creator and executive producer Simon Welton told Variety: "The viewers are in for a real treat.
