It has been nearly three years since we welcomed Marie Kondo into our homes and hearts with Tidying Up With Marie Kondo, and now she’s back with a brand new Netflix series, Sparking Joy, which drops all three episodes on August 31. The streamer has also released a new trailer and poster that teases Kondo‘s return for more organizing adventures.
In 2019, Kondo, creator of the KonMari method of organization, sparked a renaissance of sorts with her approach to reducing clutter in our homes. After its release, the Netflix series led to increased donations at charity shops as viewers decided whether or not their material possessions ‘sparked joy’ in their lives.
In this three-episode series, Kondo takes those life-changing methods that she introduced to us in Tidying Up and shares them with three deserving businesses, helping them organize their workplaces. The episodes also include the emotional tidying up of one of the employees’ lives, not just at work or at home, but in their relationships and personal life. It’s safe to say that tears will be involved.
Her methods of helping people spark joy in their homes have a transformational aspect in the most surprising and emotional ways. The new series will also give a glimpse at Marie’s home life, introducing viewers to her family and providing them with a first-hand look into how she keeps her own daily life neat and tidy.
Rachelle Mendez serves as the showrunner and executive producer for Sparking Joy, with Marie Kondo and Takumi Kawahara executive producing for KonMarie Media Inc. and Jane Lipsitz, Dan Cutforth, Dan Volpe, Nan Strait, and Grace Lee-Toumanidis executive producing for Alfred Street.
Sparking Joy With Marie Kondo starts streaming on August 31. Check out the new trailer below:
