TERRACE House is back and this time the show goes back to its roots in Tokyo, hence the title Terrace House: Tokyo 2019-2020.
Over the last few years, Terrace House has garnered its own fan base with five hit series and one theatrical film.
The show follows the lives of six strangers, with three men and three women from different walks of life who come together to live under the same roof, and get to know one another throughout the show period.
Each season of the series would see one or two people leave the house and who would be replaced by a new member who joins the house.
Six commentators offering their best and humorous thoughts happens to be one of the best offerings of Terrace House as well.
Terrace House: Tokyo 2019-2020 sees six new members.
Kaori Watanabe, Haruka Okuyama and Risako Tanabe make up the female cast while Shohei Matsuzaki, Kenji Yoshihara and Ruka Nishinoiri make up the male members of the house.

The 31-year old Kenji appears as a singer with who performs under a stage name of “Kenny” in his band SPiCYSOL. Kenji joins the show as a cast member as he finds it difficult to date publicly in Japan and would like to start a family soon.
The 28-year-old illustrator is the first person to arrive. Kaori works as an illustrator and makes art for fashion magazines and throughout the show, she reveals that she has galleries showcasing her artwork in cafes and aspires to become bigger in her trade in the future. Musician Kenji takes a liking towards her.
The jack of all trades, Shohei first reveals to be a model and actor living in Taipei and soon moves back to Japan. Upon his return, he returns back into his former part time job that helps to finish interiors.
A common thing among many Terrace House members are often them being actresses and models, however while Haruka excels in both career paths, audiences are shown the other side to her in drag racing as well as golfing.
The youngest member of the team often finds himself turning red during conversation with the ladies in the house. He claims to have joined the house to look for love and update his dating skills. Ruka and Risako (see below) hit it off earlier compared to other members of the House, leading audiences to wonder if there is something more to expect throughout the show.
The fitness trainer and parkour enthusiast joins Terrace House for romance and hopes to find someone special during her time in the house. She gets close to Ruka, where audiences are bound to see more kawaii (loveable) moments including both of them throughout the first part of the show.
Terrace House: Tokyo 2019-2020 is off to a great start in terms of unscripted content as the personalities of the cast members this time vary from previous shows. Commentator Ryota Yamasato noted how straightforward the members are, referring to Shohei’s spontaneity in asking Kaori out on a date on the first day.
The reality show is expected to ramp its style this seasons and fans would just have to stick around to find out more where these six lives will head to.
