It seems that Married at First Sight will get its renewal after all, but instead of featuring new couples like it did in Season 2, FYI will bring back the original couples from the first season to see how they fared after a year of marriage.
According to a report by IBTimes, the show will bring back Jamie Otis, Doug Hehner, Cortney Hendrix and Jason Carrion.
The third season will be called Married at First Sight: The First Year.
For a while, it was unsure of whether the show would be picked up for a renewal after fans were outraged by the disaster that was Season 2 featuring couples Sean and Davina, Ryan and Jaclyn, and Ryan and Jessica.
Based on a report by Christian Today, the show will focus on the development of the original couples’ relationships from the sixth month of their marriage until the first year of their unions. It is expected that the season will cover major celebrations like birthdays, anniversaries, holidays and other milestones in addition to checking out how they live their daily lives.
The report said that the show will also provide a look at how Jason and Cortney will manage their career issues while Jamie and Doug will have to deal with the issue of whether they are ready to expand their family.
The show will also introduce the couples’ families to the audience.
According to FYI’s official site, the network described what’s in store for viewers.
“From the holidays to birthdays to moving into new homes viewers will see the two couples mark many ‘firsts’ together, as well as receive advice and guidance from season one’s trusted specialists, including sexologist, Dr. Logan Levkoff; psychologist, Dr. Joseph Cilona; and sociologist, Dr. Pepper Schwartz. The series will also check in with the couple that chose not to stay together Monet and Vaughn,” it read.
