Netflix has dropped the trailer for its brand new reality dating show Sexy Beast.

Sexy Beasts will show pandas, aliens and mythical creatures on their search for love. All taking place on planet Earth in 2021. But how is this possible, you ask? 

The contestants will be wearing elaborate Hollywood-style prosthetics while on their blind date to hide their appearance. 

There will be six 30-minute episodes in the first season, which will feature one single person being matched with three potential suitors. And after their three dates, they'll decide who they want to see without their prosthetics. 

"Ready to say goodbye to superficial dating? Sexy Beasts is the dating show that takes looks completely out of the equation using fantastical, cutting edge prosthetics to transform the daters - giving them a chance to find love purely based on personality!" says the show's synopsis.

Simon Welton, creator and executive producer for Lion TV, said: "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. I hope the show puts a smile on peoples' faces as they play along to discover who'll fall in love with who, and what our cast all really look like."

The first season will be released globally on July 21, with a second season of six more episodes due for release later this year.
