The streaming service shared a teaser for the dating reality series Wednesday.


Netflix described Sexy Beasts as The Masked Singer meets Love is Blind. The series features contestants who are transformed into various animals and mythical creatures with elaborate makeup and prosthetics.

"Making Sexy Beasts for Netflix has been an incredibly exciting process. With an international cast featuring some truly brilliant characters, a host of prosthetics which look extraordinary in 4K and with Rob Delaney narrating, the viewers are in for a real treat," series creator Simon Welton said. "I hope the show puts a smile on people's faces as they play along to discover who'll fall in love with who, and what our cast all really look like."
