Plot Synopsis

In this reality series, complete strangers meet and receive a diary holding the script to their very own love story. Will true romance follow? Two people who have never met before are cast to live out a romantic storyline by following a rough "script" in the diary that is handed to them containing only a rough outline of a story. Their semi-fictional exchange, based on the casts' own words, takes them through an experience that could ultimately influence how they view one another. Viewers are left asking themselves whether the casts' scripted adventures will lead to real romance. A reboot of a reality series from 1998 to 2002, THE FUTURE DIARY features host Daigo and other studio members -- including Taiki Sato, Saya, Reina Sumi and Natsuna -- who watch the couple's journey closely. Three first episodes of THE FUTURE DIARY dropped on Tuesday, December 14, 2021 on Netflix, with a new episode debuting each Tuesday, through January 18.
THE FUTURE DIARY returned for its second season on Tuesday, May 17, 2022, as Netflix released the first four episodes of the new season. A brand-new love story unfolds when a young office worker in Tokyo finds herself caught between a charming bartender and a handsome medical student. Under the light of a full moon, bartender Aki meets Moka, a young office worker from Tokyo. But then Moka receives her own diary entry.
