This spring, the hit docu-series Married at First Sight comes to Lifetime on the A+E Network, as lonely hearts in the Chicago area take the sacred vow to a stranger the moment they meet. That’s not all, as the new spin-off series Married at First Sight: Second Chances also arrives at the end of April, giving viewer favourites from the past the opportunity to find love again.
For those unfamiliar with the format of the show, singles yearning for a life-long partnership undergo a series of tests from a team of experts in sociology and relationships, and compatible couples are created based on scientific match-making. The first place the pair will see each other is at the altar, and the series captures each couple’s journey from the wedding, to the honeymoon, to settling down, to the daily struggle of making the marriage work. This culminates in a decision made after several weeks together: do they remain married or decide to seek a divorce?
Season five of Married at First Sight will include 17 episodes, while Married at First Sight: Second Chances will feature 12 episodes of must-see drama, entertainment and excitement, completely exclusive to Lifetime!
